The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - I'm a pretty big Beatles fan (as is just about everyone else I've met), so I look forward to this one. The Beatles and their debauchery have been analyzed for the past half-century, revealing a lot of funny and interesting stories about their tours. Surely, this new documentary will share even more information on the band that was vital to the British Invasion. Also, Ron Howard is a great director who should be able to keep the audience's attention throughout the doc!
Snowden - The early buzz is bad and I can honestly say I am tired of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's biopics now. Maybe he is being miscast lately, but The Walk was enough for me of Gordon-Levitt's use of accents. In Snowden trailers, it appears that Gordon-Levitt is once again trying to use a poor accent to stay true to his character. Unfortunately, the actor seems to be overacting once again which might be the problem with this new biopic. Oliver Stone's direction might not be good enough to save this film from its own cast.

Bridget Jones's Baby - Honestly, I have never seen a Bridget Jones movie and I doubt that I will start with this one. Still, the cast looks fun and features Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, and Patrick Dempsey. The problem is really the factor of cheesiness that will undoubtedly accompany this film. I'm never really a fan of romantic comedies unless they are really clever and stand out from the crowd. The Bridget Jones franchise seems to try to appeal to middle-aged audiences, so maybe someday I will understand the attraction. For now, I will wait for Colin Firth's reappearance in Kingsman 2.
