Out With The Old In With The New Part 6

It is a new year and you know what that means, my list of favorite movies from the past year and what movies I am looking forward too.
Les Miserables the musical has been a huge favorite of mine since I first saw a special on PBS. I have seen the movie twice and loved it even more the second time. I bought the soundtrack the day after Christmas and some songs already have 33 listens.

I am such a huge Batman & Chirstopher Nolan fan, I really thought this was a great end to the series. And Catwoman was exactly what I would have wished her to be.

Oh Wes Anderson you make me laugh so much!

I also enjoyed The Hunger Games, Breaking Dawn part 2 (I could watch Lee Pace as Garrett all day long) and Snow White & The Huntsman.

The movies I am looking forward to the most are mostly from books! First and foremost is Austenland which is premiering at Sundance this month!!! 

We also have The Mortal Instruments, which it has been awhile since I read but watching the trailer brought back my love for the series. 

The Host, I wasn't happy with the younger casting of the film BUT once I saw the trailer all my Ian love came back.

I am excited about Catching Fire mostly because of Finnick!

And although I didn't like The Great Gatsby I will be seeing this movie as well. Also Jack The Giant Slayer looks good too. Everytime I think about how this

became this

it brings a smile to my face. I am so proud that Marcus grew up to be awesome.


  1. These posts are my favorite posts. You have good taste, Connie. Just some of my thoughts:
    1) That picture of Bret and Keri?! Oh my.
    2) LEE PACE.
    3) I thought I was the only other person in the world that doesn't like "The Great Gatsby" story. But, the movie looks interesting.
    4) I too love that Marcus grew up and is awesome.

    1) This quote from Bret makes me very happy... “I play a love interest in a rom-com so I do a lot of on-screen kissing,” he says of Austenland. “I’m now a professional on-screen kisser.” Bret McKenzie”
    2) LEE PACE - Have you seen Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day? Angela says she hasn't I think there needs to be a movie night.
    3) I hated The Great Gatsby! I know seeing it is just going to end as bad as when I read & then watched the one with Robert Redford. I mean if Robert Redford can't make me like it what could?
    4) I just saw that he is dating Jennifer Lawrence aka Katniss and I just realized he could have made such a good Peeta.

  3. 1) I love him!!!!
    2) PLEASE!!!! I haven't seen it either!!!
    3) Seriously!!!!
    4) Um, I'm calling for a Hunger Games remake in the name of Marcus.
