1. The LEGO Batman Movie
2. Fifty Shades Darker
3. John Wick: Chapter Two
4. xXx: The Return of Xander Cage
5. Rock Dog
6. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
7. Underworld: Blood Wars
8. Get Out
9. Rings
10. The Great Wall



I watched all the trailers. Some for only about 5 seconds (told me what I needed to know), but still. What a mostly awful looking batch of films.

I keep an eye out for a few of them though: Get Out (best trailer of the bunch), Resident Evil (obligatory) and The Space Between Us (Maybe it doesn't suck... I stopped the trailer before I learned too much)

I'll try to get my entry posted today and then figure out the BoxOffice Pro list.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

When's the deadline for ballots? I have been procrastinating this. I wouldn't want to miss my seasonal hhumiliation.

Sorry for the late reply. I am doing this in the early morning if that counts for anything.

1. The LEGO Batman Movie
2. Fifty Shades Darker
3. John Wick: Chapter Two
4. The Return of Xander Cage
5. Underworld: Blood Wars
6. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
7. Split
8. Rock Dog
9. Rings
10. The Great Wall

I hate that I have to put Shades at the top of a list. People are terrible. If you know anyone who's going to watch it on Valentine's Day on purpose, I suggest you stop talking to that person.

This season looks horrible. Last year was a great Winter Season and in comparison this is depressing. Am I going to have to watch Underworld at the cinema to scratch my itch? Brrr...Never thought I'd miss the days of Jupiter Ascending.

Some thoughts I had whilst Googling these titles:
  • Jesus, they're still making Ring movies?
  • ShyamlaNo!
  • If Monster Trucks makes any money all hope is lost.
  • Haven't there been some other Lego movies? What happened to those ones?
  • The six top movies of my list are sequels...
  • I have never been so glad to get movies months later than the US. At least I'll have something to watch in February.

The delayed releases really are equal parts blessing and curse. There's really no dead zone and/or insane rush, but it's always annoying to see films three months after everyone's done talking about them (and/or you can't vote for them in Filmspots).
