The Donald Trump inauguration seems like the ending of a super dark Marvel movie, in which the bad guy wins and Captain America can do nothing but be sad, weepy and teary (in a sufficiently manly manner, of course) in a dark room all by himself.
I am a question to the world, Not an answer to be heard Or a moment that’s held in your arms. And what do you think you’d ever say? I won’t listen anyway… You don’t know me, And I’ll never be what you want me to be.
And what do you think you’d understand? I’m a boy, no, I’m a man.. You can’t take me and throw me away. And how can you learn what’s never shown? Yeah, you stand here on your own. They don’t know me ‘cause I’m not here.
And I want a moment to be real, Wanna touch things I don’t feel, Wanna hold on and feel I belong. And how can the world want me to change? They’re the ones that stay the same. They don’t know me, 'Cause I’m not here.
And you see the things they never see All you wanted, I could be Now you know me, and I’m not afraid And I wanna tell you who I am Can you help me be a man? They can’t break me As long as I know who I am
And I want a moment to be real, Wanna touch things I don’t feel, Wanna hold on and feel I belong. And how can the world want me to change? They’re the ones that stay the same. They can’t see me, But I’m still here.
They can’t tell me who to be, ‘Cause I’m not what they see. Yeah, the world is still sleepin’, While I keep on dreamin’ for me. And their words are just whispers And lies that I’ll never believe.
And I want a moment to be real, Wanna touch things I don’t feel, Wanna hold on and feel I belong. And how can they say I never change? They’re the ones that stay the same. I’m the one now, ‘Cause I’m still here.
I’m the one, ‘Cause I’m still here. I’m still here. I’m still here. I’m still here.
It’s that time of the year again! I can’t believe we’re so close to the end of 2013 already! Nonetheless, i’m looking forward to the new year and of course all the films that will be released throughout it. So without further adieu (i feel like i say this all the time… here are my most anticipated films of 2014!
'RoboCop’ (February 12th) - I remember rather fondly watching the original films when i was young and so far from what i’ve seen from the trailer this re-boot looks really good, slightly different from what i remember from the original but still nonetheless one i look forward to watching for sure!
'Captain America: The Winter Solider’ (April 4th) - I’m probably in the minority with those who thought that the first Captain America film was one of the best from the phase of the Marvel films (minus The Avengers). All i can say is that i loved the first and i hope i love this one even more!
'The Amazing Spider-man 2’ (May 2nd) - Spider-man, Spider-man, Does whatever a spider can. Back for round 2… or 5 depending on the way you look at it. This film definitely has a lot going for it and it could go either way. So i can’t wait to see how this film turns out.
'Godzilla’(May 16th)- I don’t remember the last time i saw a dinosaur film - there are the Jurassic Park films but i wasn’t old enough to watch or fully experience it in cinemas, so i guess you can say that i’m looking forward to seeing Godzilla!
'How to Train Your Dragon 2’ (June 16th) - I was rather surprised at how much i liked the first film. All i can really say right now is that i’m really glad that there’s going to be a sequel! Bring on more Hiccup and Toothless!
'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ (June 11th) - Who could forget the moment that Caesar blurted out that infamous NOO!! Shit got real and from that moment on, i was ready for this sequel to happen as soon as possible! Only 7 months to go!
'22 Jump Street' (June 13th) - Good comedies today are usually rather hard to come by and 21 Jump street was so awesomely funny and original. I really hope that this sequel will be able to do if not the same, even better!
'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ (August 8th) - Cowabunga! I remember watching and loving the cartoon and films as a kid, so i guess no matter who (Michael Bay) eventually got a hold of this film for a re-boot i’d end up watching it.
'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1’ (November 21st) - I’m not too crazy about the final book being split into 2 films. There’s a 50/50 chance it won’t work and there is of course the 1 year long wait between each film but i’m confident as the first two were great that it’ll be worthwhile!
Isn’t it weird that 6 out of the 9 films i picked are sequels?!
Here are a few other films that didn’t quite make my top 9 but i’m still looking forward to seeing! (In no particular order)
