With a new year bearing on us soon, it's time to take a look at movies coming out in amazing 2015...starting with January...
Taken 3 (Jan 9-USA, Jan 8-UK, Jan 8-Singapore)
When even the second movie already feels repetitive & boring, I can't even fathom why I would want a third one. But with synopsis & trailers out, I can at least relax that no one is "taken" yet. In fact, the film is more like a manhunt: a typical protagonist on the run, trying to set things right. Sound super typical & cliche, but with Liam Neeson as the hero, and some cool action pieces, I can't see why this won't be a good time filler at the start of the year.
Blackhat (Jan 16-USA, Feb 20-UK, Jan 15-Singapore)
An exciting premise, a well-proven director, and a fan-favourite actor makes this a very promising movie to watch. The trailer doesn't make it a lot more exciting to watch. The thing with computers is always expected to happen when a movie says cyberterrorism, but everything else seem to be more on drama than action. I will definitely watch this, but I can't say I'm totally anticipating it.
Oh, and Jakarta (Indonesia), my home town (country) is in it, too.

Mortdecai (Jan 23-USA, Jan 23-UK, Jan 29-Singapore)
With the recent flops in Johnny Depp's movies, it gets harder to root for him in new various eccentric roles. Only Jack Sparrow and the Mad Hatter have really worked well for him (although Tonto was alright). But any other of his film roles have so far failed him, and with a similar tone of eccentricity like most of his other roles, it becomes hard for me to get interested with this. But with a lot of excellent supporting cast, as well a trailer that's quite interesting, it's fair enough to give this film a chance.
