the second best marigold hotel

I’m very excited to bring you my first theater release film review of 2015! What better way to begin than with a sequel! The second best exotic Marigold hotel is the sequel to the 2012 hit The best exotic Marigold hotel, a film that I personally enjoyed so much it made my Top 5 Best of 2012 year end wrap up article that year. This second in the series is as equally entertaining as the first. So here we go with The second best exotic Marigold hotel.

INTERSTELLAR – Christopher Nolan

Back in 2005, director Christopher Nolan decided to take over the Batman franchise and begin what would be his, “Dark Knight Trilogy”. No one knew what to expect back then. Fanboys of the Tim Burton Batman films of the late 1980′s/early 1990′s, screamed because they thought their beloved franchise would be ruined. Instead it became the biggest and most amazing superhero franchise to date.

RAMPAGE: CAPITAL PUNISHMENT – Uwe Boll

The clip slides into the base of the gun, you then bull back on the lever and now it’s ready to shoot. This is how you should prepare yourself when you sit down to watch Rampage: Capital Punishment. The movie is an emotional assault weapon. And to write this review, I honestly had to rip myself open to write this review Rampage: Capital Punishment has me a bit choked up, it cuts close the bone.

HORNS – Alexandre Aja

Stephen King‘s first film was based on his book, Carrie back in the 1970′s, from there he has had over 50 films adapted from his works ranging from feature films, television mini-series, television shows, plays, and “Dollar Baby” short films. The torch, so to speak, seems to be passing along to one of his sons, Joe Hill (who starred in King’s film, Creepshow).

A GOOD MARRIAGE – Peter Askin

With the exception of the “reboot” of Carrie in 2013, there hasn’t been a theater release of a Stephen King film since 2007′s The Mist. There have been some straight-to-dvd releases and some that have played on television, but this is the first otherwise.

GET ON UP – Tate Taylor

I have always been a fan of biography themed films. Movies like Sweet Dreams, The Doors, Amadeus, and others simply fascinated me. This film is about the fall and rise of the greatest soul singer, amazing entertainer, and the “Godfather of Soul”, James Brown. What I loved about this film is how they mixed it all up.

THE EXPENDABLES 3 – Patrick Hughes

You know when the summer blockbuster ride comes to an end? The pickings are slim and the sequels to “average” films are released in August. One of those sequels is the third installment to the Action-Packed franchise, The Expendables. This 3rd part to the mega-hit franchise brings the “old” action stars with a “new generation” of action stars. The best of both worlds.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY – James Gunn

The Marvel comic book superheroes have been dominating the box office for quite awhile now. Everything from Iron Man to Captain America to The Avengers, but now, a new superhero film has been released like no other. When I first watched Guardians of the galaxy I couldn’t help but think about the old 1980′s Scifi Adveture/Comedy films like Ice Pirates, Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, & even Spaceballs, but Guardians of the galaxy is a lot better than those films.
