    not byron Prestigious

    Man, I did not know about Unicorn Store. That's very interesting. Larson and SLJ as actors would have me sold alone but her directing? Interesting.

    Hope that ends up a lot better than, say, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's debut

    A (Cancelled) Dork Prestigious

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbings, Missouri is the new film from Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths). In addition to most everything mentioned above already, I'm really looking forward to this one.

    I truly cannot emphasize enough how excited I am for Baby Driver. It's been too long, Edgar. Same goes for Downsizing/Alexander Payne.

    Forgot about Futile and Stupid Gesture. Spider-man, I'm weirdly on the fence about. As in, I'm sure it'll be good but I don't know if I'll be wowed or anything

    then you can’t die just yet Prestigious

    I usually just take movies as they come and only go out of my way to over-think comic book films 'cause I'm a nerd and a loser. Out of those films, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 easily takes the top spot, but I'm also VERY excited for Logan in spite of Fox's track record.
  17. Nathan

    Always do the right thing. Supporter

    Lynne Ramsay's You Were Never Really Here with Joaquin Phoenix.
    Terrence Malick's Weightless.
    Bong Joon-Ho's Okja.
    Kathryn Bigelow's Detroit riot movie, however anxious I am about it being too white.
    Does Personal Shopper count? I think it's technically 2016 but I don't think it's been released anywhere yet. Would love for Olivier Assayas and Kristen Stewart to make movies together forever.
    Destin Daniel Cretton's the Glass Castle. I loved Short Term 12 and look forward to what he does next, though I'm probably more interested in his adaptation of Just Mercy with Michael B. Jordan, whenever that gets rolling.
    Sofia Coppola's the Beguiled.
    Kingsman: the Golden Circle. I don't usually get too excited for sequels, but adding Channing Tatum helps. Speaking of, Steven Sodebergh has a new movie coming out next year with Channing Tatum so my ticket is sold.
    Spielberg has the Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara. Oscar Isaac is in it, and he's re-teaming with Alex Garland for something that I'll check out.

    I'll also see new Edgar Wright, Alexander Payne, and Rian Johnson because they're pretty great. Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, yeah. I guess I'll pray that Una gets distribution.
  18. BirdPerson

    fuck tammy! Prestigious

    I'm going to base this on movies I will actually see in theaters:
    Beauty and the Beast
    Star Wars Ep VIII

    And ones I might pony up the dough for, because they will be better seen in a theater:
    Alien: Covenant

    Also I'm looking forward to Jackie. Don't even care if it's just Portman Oscar bait.
