Look Out 2014: Movies

By WVUM DJ posted Feb 15, 2014 at 09:17 PM

Natasha and Jarryd tell us their most anticipated movie released of 2014 

Natasha recommends: 

Nymphomaniac (3/21/14)

Set to be released in two parts, (first part in March, the second in April) Lars von Trier does it again with Nymphomaniac. I am so ready to feel uncomfortable in a movie theatre filled with people.


The Grand Budapest Hotel (3/7/14)

Wes Anderson continues to create visually stunning works with The Grand Budapest Hotel which stars some of his main stays such as Bill Murray, Jason Shwartzman Adrien Brody and Owen Wilson and introduces new faces to the Anderson oeuvre like Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, and Blue is The Warmest Color star, Léa Seydoux. Based on the fact that Moonrise Kingdom quickly jumped to my top three favorite Wes Andrson films, I wonder how Grand Budapest Hotel will stack up.


God Help The Girl (1/18/14)

Stuart Murdoch, lead singer of Belle & Sebastian, makes his directing debut in which he also wrote the songs to be sung by the lead women Emily Browning and Hannah Murray. It shall be a Scottish love song for the eyes and the ears.


Tommy (3/14/14)

Swedish director Tarik Selah’s new thriller features the lovely Lykke Li as one of the cast members. He has directed some of Lykke’s amazing videos such as "Sadness is a Blessing" and "I Follow Rivers". The story follows a family in the aftermath of a huge robbery. There are no subtitles in the trailer, but Lykke looks flawless so it makes up for the confusion.


Jarryd recommends (4 films and 1 TV series):

The Lego Movie (2/7/14)

Ok. Full disclosure. I’ve seen The Lego Movie. And if you’re a smart person (and I know you are), you’ve seen it already too. It is phenomenal! Clever, funny, poignant, and politically aware (I know, right?), everything actually is awesome about this film.



Nymphomaniac (3/21/14)

Lars von Trier has gone on record saying, “I am afraid of everything in life, except filmmaking.”  If you’ve seen the posters for Nymphomaniac, his latest film, you’ll see that he’s definitely not afraid of pushing boundaries. His work has been called many things: offensive, disgusting, horrifying, morbidly depressing. But no one can ever claim that they aren’t interesting.


Guardians of the Galaxy (8/1/14)

In a normal world, Hollywood executives would have never green lit this movie. It has a walking tree and a talking, gun-toting space raccoon. It’s a superhero movie without any superheroes and zero recognizable villains. Yet, by all accounts the script is amazing. It has a $150 million budget. It has an all-star cast: Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, and Benicio del Toro. I guess this isn’t a normal world.


Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey (11/7/14)

“Science is interesting, and if you don’t agree you can fuck off” – Richard Dawkins quoting Jeremy Webb.


Godzilla (5/16/14)

If there is anything I love in this world, it’s Godzilla movies. The first toy I ever had was a Trendmasters Godzilla toy. The first non-Star Wars movie I remember was 1964’s Godzilla vs. Mothra. So yes, I am a huge Godzilla nerd. To see that America is trying to remake the King of the Monsters again makes me cautious. But with a Frank Darabont script, and excellent cast (including Breaking Bad’s Brian Cranston), I am cautiously optimistic. And after seeing the trailer, I am SOOO hype for this movie it doesn’t even seem healthy. To say that this is my most anticipated movie of 2014 is an understatement. My body is ready.


Jarryd is also hype for:

Game of Thrones (Season 4), Noah, Grand Budapest Hotel, Gone Girl, Boardwalk Empire (Final Season), & Inherent Vice.
