General diary entries


I can’t deny it, I’m getting a little bit excited.
Batman vs Superman is less than a week away from release.
Due to work and gaming comittments on Ian’s part, we are having to wait until the 27th to see it.
We have chosen to see it in IMAX!! and we are taking Marjorie with us. She is going to freak!
This is going to be amazing in IMAX.
Henry Cavill has competition because Ben Affleck is looking exceedingly hot!

We are inching closer and closer to some of the biggest films of the year.
I have finally got Star Wars episode 7 out of my system although the Bluray is ordered and will be arriving on my doorstep on 18th April so I may do some more gushing over that one on yet another viewing.

To ease the pain of the incredibly long wait for Episode 8, we have some other pretty big franchises to keep us entertained.

This year alone, Marvel and DC are battling it out for supremacy.
DC are finally getting into the swing of things with the aforementioned Batman vs Superman but they are also introducing us to the Suicide Squad.
This is probably my most anticipated film this year and I sooo want it to do well.

Marvel is still one step ahead with continuations in the Captain America Franchise with Captain America: Civil War.
I have been talked into a movie marathon by Marjorie.
She is a huge Captain America fan so we are going to see re-runs of Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier followed by a midnight sceening of Captain America: Civil War!!
I haven’t done a movie Marathon since 1991 when I went to see the first 6 Star Trek movies.
Anyway, if this trailer is anything to go by, it will be worth it.

Then the following month we have X-Men Apocalypse.
Really looking forward to this one and can’t wait to see Oscar Isaac in something completely different for him as he is playing Apocalypse. Takes a minute to realise it’s him under all that makeup and costume.

Marvel are also introducing us to a new character this year, Dr Strange.
He’s being played by Benedict Cumberbatch but there is no trailer yet.

Doctor Strange

I think that’s it for DC and Marvel this year. I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong.

Another Franchise that’s back this year is Star Trek.
I am a long time fan of Star Trek and I absolutely love the previous 2 re-boot movies.
I know there are a lot of die hard fans out there that will disagree with me but I think JJ Abrams did a fabulous job of breathing life back into the franchise.
I can’t wait for Star Trek Beyond.

And of course the end of the year sees another Star Wars Franchise movie.
NOT THE ONE I WANT… but one to tide us over until next year.
Star Wars Rogue One is the first of the stand alone Star Wars movies and tells the story of how the plans for the original Death Star were retrieved before Episode 4: A New Hope.
There is no official trailer release yet (so forget what it says in the title) but this appears to be a teaser that was shown at a convention and hand filmed so the quality isn’t great.

Anyway, these are some of the ‘stand out’ films I can’t wait to see this year.
I’m sure there are many more in between but I could be here all day.
It’s going to be a good year for movies.
