Upcoming movies 2013

Favorite way of spending Saturday nights? Well, going to the cinema, of course (even though time is a bit of a luxury for us because of tons of homework).

This is a list of our thinking-to-see movies of 2013

1. Catching Fire (Hunger Games #2)

The aftermath of “Hunger Games” follows Katniss Everdeen who has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.

Angela: The book was awesome, so I have high expectations. I hope they won’t ruin the book!

Nancy: The previous movie was good, but seemed like something was missing

2. Thor: The Dark World 

Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Nancy : I’ve never seen any Thor movies, but it seems pretty interesting…

3. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellan) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

Angela : I loved the previous one and I’m soooo dying to read the book!

Nancy: I liked it, but after a bit of time it seemed a bit boring…

4. Ender’s Game

The Earth was ravaged by the Formics, an alien race seemingly determined to destroy humanity. Seventy years later, the people of Earth remain banded together to prevent their own annihilation from this technologically superior alien species. Ender Wiggin, a quiet but brilliant boy, may become the savior of the human race. He is separated from his beloved sister and his terrifying brother and brought to battle school in orbit around earth. He will be tested and honed into an empathetic killer who begins to despise what he does as he learns to fight in hopes of saving Earth and his family.

Angela: Nancy seems a bit excited about the movie, but I’m not quite sure, that I’m going to like it…

Divergent : Another movie remake failure?

Divergent is an upcoming American science fiction adventure film directed by Neil Burger, based on the novel byVeronica Roth. The film is produced by Lucy Fisher, Pouya Shabazian and Douglas Wick, with a screenplay by Evan Daugherty andVanessa Taylor. It stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney and Kate Winslet.Divergent is scheduled to be released on March 21, 2014 in the United States.

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue–Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is–she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are–and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

From what I’ve seen from the trailer, movie is going to be a disaster. The actors seem sooooo wrong! The woman who plays Tris looks like 30 years and not 16. In the book she is described as a small girl that looks like 12 years old.  Well, they could read the book, before turning it into a movie.

I read some comments on youtube and it seems that the fans are a bit disappointed.  (Angela)

(Nancy) I haven’t read the book, but the whole plot seems absolutely awesome. I believe that we should wait until we watch the movie, before start judging it. How bad can it be??

City of Bones

The movie was pretty amazing, but only if you haven’t read the book…
There were many changes and some parts were missing. Ok, we get it, the movie would be huge if it followed exactly the book’s plot, but , seriously, they almost cut it half! The few common things between the book and the movie were the many characters and the places (sort of).
And the actors were, well, maybe not as bad as we thought, BUT couldn’t they pick anything better???? Jace was WAY different from the readers’ picture.

As for the good parts of the movie, the special effects were very interesting.

One last thing that must be told is that : The mortal instruments is nothing like Twilight (in which they did follow the book). They’re COMPLETELY different. TMI is better and the plot is more interesting and it’s not all about the romance between Jace and Clary.
