As you may know about me, I am a huge movie fan. When I am not working or doing something photography related, you can often find me in my movie room (man cave) that I put in my house. Being a bachelor I can get away with this. I do find when I talk about this room I get a lot of bride’s to be ask why I gave their husband’s to be the idea of having a movie room in the house. Well because it’s tons of fun!

It’s been a great year for movies, and movie news. We recently heard the George Lucas sold his rights to Star Wars to Disney to start a whole new adventure. With this will come 3 new Star Wars movies as well as two spin off movies for Boba Fett and Hans Solo. SPOLIER ALERT: One theory is that the new star wars trilogy will follow the kids of Hans Solo and Leia as they try to rebuild the Jedi way. We may even see the 3 main stars; Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford return in some capacity. Isn’t that exciting?
We saw the end to the great Batman trilogy this year. Christopher Nolan and Wally Pfister are one of my favorite pairs in cinema today.
Other notables this year was Skyfall, with one of the greatest opening credit/music scenes I may have ever seen in the past 5 years, the Hobbit, Looper, The Avengers, Prometheus, and thank goodness the Twilight series came to an end. A movie you might have missed this year that was really amazing was Moonrise Kingdom. If you have not yet seen this movie I highly recommend it as a rental. It stars Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and Jason Schwartzman.
There were a lot of great movies that I even missed this year that I can’t wait to see on video like Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, Life of Pi, and Argo. I know, I can’t believe I missed all of those as well, and I do feel ashamed.
Below is a list of the upcoming movies that I am really excited to see for this upcoming year. It is going to be a GREAT year, starting off with Oz the Great and Powerful next week. The highlight for me will definitely be Superman: Man of Steel. Although I was one of the few that liked the last Superman Returns, Christopher Nolan and his brother have their hand in this movie, and I expect it to be amazing! Here is the trailer if you have not yet seen it:
As a superhero geek, I am also very excited for Iron Man 3! See trailer below:
And to round out the geekness, and I am not even a huge Star Trek Fan, but this movie looks amazing. Star Trek Into Darkness
