Friday Five: Movies to See

Every Friday I’ll indulge my order-crazed brain in a list of randomness. Welcome to my Friday Fives.

Despite what the famous song says, THIS is the most wonderful time of the year. Football has one foot out the door with the Super Bowl being its final bullet. And, more importantly, it’s Award Season. I have an extreme pop culture addiction, so this is basically Christmas all over again.

Tina and Amy started everything off with their final hosting gig for the Golden Globes. I had pen and paper near by to collect all of the movies we need to see, STAT.

Since Joe and I rarely go to the theater–opting for the less-expensive, less-social option of renting from the library–there are definitely more than five on the list, but these are our top contenders. Next week I’ll be back with my Top Five movies we saw this year.

But first, those we still want to see:

5. Big Eyes

I love Amy Adams. I love Christoph Waltz. And this is based on a true story. Wam, bam, thankyoum’am. This is a no brainer.

4. Into the Woods

All of our music friends are going crazy for this one, so it made the cut. Any chance to hear Anna Kendrick sing before Pitch Perfect 2 comes out is a good enough reason for me.

3. Boyhood

Reasons: Because it’s groundbreaking. Because it’s slated to win it all. Because it’s the movie that took 12 years to make.

2. Birdman

Michael Keaton will always be my batman. Sorry, Christian. So, to see him play a washed-up actor who used to portray a super hero is just my kind of irony. Plus, his tearful thank-you speech to his son upon his Golden Globe win tugged alllll the heart strings.

1. The Theory of Everything

I’ve basically been in love with Eddie Redmayne since he was singing from the barricade.  I fully expect him to sweep the awards circuit with his performance as Stephen Hawking. I need to see it so I can fully jump on this growing bandwagon and cheer him on properly.

Five Honorable Mentions:

* Tim’s Vermeer
* The Imitation Game
* Snowpiercer
* American Sniper
* Foxcatcher
