Top 5 Scorsese Films

Top 5 Scorsese Films

On my Top 10 Directors list Scorsese topped it. I absolutely adore his films, he absolutely mastered crime thrillers. All of his films have a lot of grit to them, but they always have so many amazing twists and turns. If you haven't seen any of his films, check yourself, because his films are fantastic. For those of you who might disagree with some of the films I left out, I haven't seen Raging Bull so, apologies that it will not break the top 5, but it IS under honourable mentions!

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Final Trailer

The final trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been released. Less then a month now! I was pretty disappointed with the last movie, so I'm hoping that this one will be better. New director, so I have hope! Check it out.

The Wolf of Wall Street Official Trailer #2

New Trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street! I love Martin Scorsese, and I love Leonardo DiCaprio. I'm pretty sure I'm going to enjoy this movie. Looks like this movie is going to be awesome!

Top 10 Halloween Movies For Kids

Its that time of year again, and boy do I love my Halloween movies! I already posted my list of Adult Halloween movies, but there are some really fun Halloween movies for kids as well!
10.) Under Wraps
Really fun Disney Channel movie from 1997 that follows 3 kids who find a mummy who has been brought back to life after 3,000 years. They're on a mission to find a resting place for Harold before Halloween night or he will turn to dust and lose any chance of being reunited with his long-lost love. Funny little movie and I always enjoyed it!

X-Men: Days of Future Past- First Official Trailer

I'm a huge fan of X-Men and I think this is going to be amazing! Past and Present(or is it Future?), Good and Evil come together to end the war once and for all. Cannot express how excited I am for this! Check it out!

Top 10 Halloween Movies For Adults

I definitely need to start off by saying that I hate horror movies and therefore there are going to be some classic slasher films missing that most people would expect to see. Apologies to those people, but I just have no interest in those ones. However, I can definitely say that all of the films listed are fantastic movies so please enjoy!

10.) Sleepy Hollow
Surprise! Tim Burton and Johnny Depp made a movie together! I haven't seen this movie in a few years, but damn is it creepy and weird. It definitely fits the halloween criteria with the classic Headless Horseman tale. This movie is one of my favourite Tim Burton movies, which obviously means that the lead is Johnny Depp. This is a perfect character for Depp and he plays it very well. The rest of the class is great and includes Christina Ricci, Michael Gambon, Richard Griffiths, Jeffrey Jones, and Christopher Walken. Depp plays Ichabod Crane, who is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of 3 people.  He soon discovers the classic tale of the Headless Horseman and attempts to solve the crimes committed.
IMDB: 7.4/10

The Fifth Estate Trailer

This trailer has been out for a few months now, but I only saw it for the first time on Friday when I went to see the film Prisoners. Everyone knows who Julian Assange is, and what Wikileaks is, but I'm really excited to see the story behind the movement. When I saw that Benedict Cumberbatch was playing Assange I was so excited, he is a great actor and he seems as though he does a great job portraying the Wikileaks founder. If you haven't seen the trailer, take a look!

Out of the Furnace

Christian Bale is one of my favourite actors, so I'm pretty much guarenteed to watch anything that he is in, but the story looks great, and the cast looks fantastic. I'm super excited to see this one. With a cast like this one which also includes Zoe Saldana, Willem Dafoe, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Forest Whitaker, and Sam Shepard, I definitely see some Oscar possibilities in this one. The director is Scott Cooper, the director of Crazy Heart, so I definitely don't think its a long shot. Check out the trailers! I included both because I liked the first one better, but a new one was released last week. I really enjoy the music choices for both, I love Pearl Jam so that pretty much sold me in the first one, and who doesn't love a good Neil Young song in a new light? Enjoy.

Two More Harry Potter Films In The Works?

Last month I mentioned that Warner Bros. and J.K Rowling were teaming up for Rowling's screenwriting debut in the new movie to take place in the well-known wizarding world. That film was going to be based off of her book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Today it's been released that Warner Bros. got the film rights for two more Harry Potter spin-offs based on J.K Rowling's books Quidditch Through The Ages and  The Tales of Beedle the Bard. More exciting news for Harry Potter Fans!
