Muppets Most Wanted (2014) Directed by James Bobin. Starring: Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey. IMDB says: “While on a grand world tour, The Muppets find themselves wrapped into an European jewel-heist caper headed by a Kermit the Frog look-alike and his dastardly sidekick.”
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) Directed by Wes Anderson. Starring: Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, & Saoirse Ronan. IMDB says: “The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.”
It’s hard to defend a film that even David Fincher walked away from. A film he’s since disowned due to the tremendous amount of shit he had to deal with. He began shooting the film with an unfinished script, the film was over budget, and the executives overruled nearly every decision he made. It was such an awful experience; Fincher went back to making music videos, most notably for Michael Jackson, Madonna, and The Rolling Stones, before returning in 1995 to direct Se7en. Hell I’m surprised he even returned to 20th Century Fox with Fight Club after the way he was treated. But with that being said, Alien³ wasn’t that bad.
Notes: I’m only focusing on the 1992 Theatrical release, not the 2003 Special Edition aka “Assembly Cut”. ALSO, fair warning upfront, there will be spoilers abound.
Winter’s Tale (2014) Directed by Akiva Goldsman. Starring: Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly. IMDB says: “A burglar falls for an heiress as she dies in his arms. When he learns that he has the gift of reincarnation, he sets out to save her.”
