Are there any movies coming out during the rest of this year that are worth seeing?

Asked by ragingloli (47294points) December 4th, 2014

I have already watched Interstellar, and after looking through the cinema programme, there is nothing worth paying for at the moment.
Is the cinematic year over already?

Wild is coming out in the US tomorrow. Probably not your taste though.

The Hobbit – Battle of the Five is coming out, last of the Trilogy, end of the Peter Jackson Tolkien films.

The third hobbit movie looks like it could be cool. Although truth be telt I didn’t think, personally, that the first two were all that great.

Yeah, I am not interested in fantasy movies. I have not ever watched the lord of the rings trilogy.

I’m looking to see Wild and The Theory of Everything soon but how can we tell what you think will be worth watching?

There are several movies currently out that I still haven’t seen and want to, including “Birdman,” “The Theory of Everything” and “The Imitation Game.” By the way, the “worth” of a movie is in the eye and age of the beholder.

Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes” looks extremely interesting. I’m also looking forward to Angelina Jolie’s war epic “Unbroken”.

Paddington might be worth seeing.

@ucme Robin Williams R.I.P.

@talljasperman Yep, that’ll work.

Little known Paddington Bear factoid #571: Jeremy (Top Gear) Clarkson owned the first bear ever made, his mum manufactured two prototypes, the other went to his sister.

I am really looking forward to The Imitation Game with Benedict Cumberbatch. I just checked the release info and it’s not released here until 1 Jan and for you in Germany, it’s the end of Jan. It’s about Alan Turing, the enigma code breaker. Such a brilliant man and so badly treated by the British.

There’s The Water Diviner. A very Australian film and Russell Crowe’s directorial debut but despite that, it’s supposed to be very good and has been successful on the awards circuit. I doubt this will be out in Germany before the end of the year either. This isn’t out until May in Germany.

And Mr Turner. A film about the painter JMW Turner. Timothy Spall plays Turner and is supposed to be absolutely brilliant in it. Spall won the best actor award at Cannes and it also won for its cinematography. That’s out here before the end of the year. It will be on limited release I’d guess. This was released in Germany in October so you might have missed this one.

Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut (I think) is Unbroken and that’s already premiered here but it’s not been on general release that I’ve seen. It shows over there in May for you! Well there’s a couple you might be able to find.

I’m also going to see the next Hobbit film.

@Earthbound_Misfit In the Land of Blood and Honey was Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut

The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything are on our list, as is the last Hobbit. I definitely want to see Unbroken, but I want to read the book first.

We missed Force Majeur in the theaters here, and since it’s a European film it may not be playing near you anymore, either.

We saw Birdman last weekend and the acting was superb, and it was an enjoyable film.

Inherent Vice is another one that looks like it will be worth the price of admission.

Foxcatcher looks pretty intense, too. We hadn’t heard about this movie, but saw the preview before Birdman, and it intrigued us as a character study.

We saw Kill the Messenger and it was in interesting look at how the story of the Iran Contra scandal was broken.

Speaking of breaking stories, Citizenfour opened in Germany last month, and is a documentary about Edward Snowden.

Thank you @Lightlyseared, I wasn’t sure. They made such a fuss about her directing Unbroken while she was here I thought it might have been her first. I’m interested in seeing Unbroken anyway.
