It may be a little while until we see a 2017 release but this is the thread for discussion of the films released this year. Anyone have any upcoming films that they're really looking forward to?

Los Angeles Overnight



I don't know much about this movie except that apparently a deal has been done to include several songs I've recorded on the soundtrack... very excited about this (especially if it leads to some payment  ;) )

That's awesome, Gant! O0

I'm not sure offhand what's coming out soon that I might want to see. I'm sure I'll be making it to the cinema some though. I went lots last year! :o

Congratulations, Gant!

That's really cool, Gant. Would this be the first time your music has been in a movie?

Keep us updated on this -- if your music is in it, I'll definitely check this one out.

Thanks gang.... Yeh, far as I know it'll be a first for me... Like I said, I know very little about the movie and have no idea what or how much material I've played on they'll use... But I'm looking forward to it.. Nice surprise for 2017..

The Lego Batman Movie is one I'm looking forward to. It's released next month. The teaser trailer from a while back was a real seller for me. ;D

 James McAvoy is a good actor.  I didn't even realize I'd seen him before in the X-Men films. The name Betty Buckley sounded familiar and once I saw her, remembered her as the stepmom from Eight Is Enough. I usually see action films or comedies but this was a good movie.

I might prefer The Lego Batman Movie over The Lego Movie. I just saw it tonight. Great fun!

This was a complete departure from what I've been reading lately. It really makes you think about life and why God doesn't stop bad things happening in this world.

The Shack is a Christian novel by Canadian author William P. Young, a former office manager and hotel night clerk, published in 2007.[1] The novel was self-published but became a USA Today bestseller, having sold 1 million copies as of June 8, 2008.[2] It was the #1 paperback trade fiction seller on the New York Times best sellers list from June 2008 to early 2010,[3] in a publishing partnership with Hachette Book Group USA's FaithWords imprint (Hodder & Stoughton in the UK). In 2009 it was awarded the "Diamond Award" for sales over 10 million copies by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.[4]
 
The title of the book is a metaphor for “the house you build out of your own pain”, as Young explained in a telephone interview.[5] He also states to radio host talk show Drew Marshall that The Shack "is a metaphor for the places you get stuck, you get hurt, you get damaged...the thing where shame or hurt is centered."[6]

4/5.

I see a film has been made from this book. It's released in the USA next month, not sure when we'll see it here though.

Someone tried to gift me that book, and I handed it back.

Logan was great! Very brutal, and probably the most adult oriented superhero movie I've seen (Deadpool is definitely "adult" but also appeals to the 12 year olds in all of us ;D).

There's a few new movies I'd like to see, Kong being one of those. Also Beauty and the Beast, Get Out, The Belko Experiment, and opening this weekend are Power Rangers and Life. I doubt I make it to see all of those though.

Power Rangers is the one I'm most surprised to see on my own list. I never watched the original series. In fact, several months ago I watched the very first episode of the series on Netflix, and that's the only episode I've seen. So I don't come to this as a fanboy in any way. It looks interesting.

I saw this last night with two uncles and a cousin.  Hey, that could be a movie title...

Anyway, we all enjoyed it.  Lots of action.  Samuel L. Jackson's character was a little over the top at times as to come across as laughable, but that didn't cause too much distraction. 

It took me a while to recognize Thomas Hiddleston, Loki from Marvel Comics' Thor series.  Brie Larson was not hard on the eyes, she is one healthy looking woman!  Rounding out the cast was John C. Reilly, he was a key player and very good. 

I recommend this for any and all interested.  Definitely worth it.  Lots of action with battles between Kong and other oversized creatures.
