January releases:

Sadly, I haven't posted in a long time (since September) but I've been so busy with school etc! Now I am back with 3 new releases for this month which I think look amazing, so I hope you enjoy.
The Revenant:
This movie is inspired by true events that occurred in the 19th century. Legendary frontiersman Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) obtains injuries after a severe bear attack where he is then left for dead by his hunting team. Glass uses his survival skills to get back home and to find John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy) through the wintery terrain. Fitzgerald was the former confident who betrayed and left Glass.
I am a huge fan of Tom Hardy (especially in Mad Max) so it will be interesting to see why he left him. Also, it sounds incredible to me as it's based on true events which makes the movie more special and intense. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone. It is intense so you will have to be focused all the way through!
Release date: January 14th 2016 (worldwide)
Age rating: 15
Time: 156 minutes
Rating: 8.3/10
Also starring: Will Poulter, Domhnall Gleeson
The 5th wave:
This movie is a sci-fi  about an alien invasion on earth. Each wave of the attack continues to effect more and more people and they include taking their power and spreading a disease. The movie follows the story of Cassie Sullivan (Chloe Grace Moretz) who is trying to survive in the world while trying to find her brother who may or may not have been taken by aliens that look just like humans. However, she is helped by a boy who could also be an alien, but in disguise.
 This screamed out at e to watch when I seen the trailer as I love anything action or sci-fi related (hence why I love marvel so much) and I was intrigued to find out who is really an alien and who isn't. I also love movies with a strong leading female who isn't necessarily the main character, but contributes a lot to the story. Just like: Natasha Romanoff, Katniss Everdeen, Susan Storm, Furiosa, Gisele (from fast and furious). Moretz in this is strong, smart and has the right skills and mind-set to

Release date: Friday 22nd January (UK)

Dirty grandpa:
Before his wedding and the day after his grandma's funeral, Jason Kelly (Zac Efron) is tricked into taking his grandpa (Robert De Niro) on a road trip during spring break. They get up to all sorts including lots of partying!

To me, this looks amazing! I love funny comedies like this where the grandpa takes over as you would never imagine them to be like that. Also, Robert De Niro is an amazing actor so this will be hilarious as its not serious like movies that have recently been released!
