Judging from the quality of the movies I’ve seen in the first half of 2016, I’d say that the rest of the year will continue to deliver some really good ones. There’ve been occasional disappointments as some films didn’t quite rise to the hypes. But I’ve been fairly pleased with my picks of movies in the past months. For the second half of the year, here are some of the films I’m looking forward to watching:
The Legend Of Tarzan
This movie will follow John Clayton III formerly known as Tarzan as he goes back to the Congo on an official assignment in the British Parliament. Unbeknownst to him, he’s just become part of a dangerous game that Captain Leon Rom orchestrated.
The latest edition of the Ghostbusters has been through some controversies even before its release. It seems that some Ghostbusters fans took issue that the latest installment will showcase an all-female ensemble. I’m not sure about the critics, but I feel that this one holds promise and I wouldn’t even dream of missing it.
Ice Age: Collision Course
I’ve been an Ice Age film fan since the first movie came out. I love Scrat’s adventures with the acorn. Sid, Manny, and Diego also never fail to deliver the laughs and the seriousness that makes the Ice Age movies worth my time.
Star Trek Beyond
The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise will be up against an unknown opponent that would put them and everything they stand for to what might be the biggest test they have to face.
Matt Damon reprises his role as Jason Bourne in the fifth installment of the series. The former CIA operative will be pitted against this films villains.
How will villains handle lethal assignments that not even superheroes seem to want to do? I can’t wait to find out how Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, and King Shark can do the job.
This movie revolves around Dr. Strange, a surgeon whose life has changed after a vehicular accident and how he learned to use psychic powers to fight evil.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them
As a Harry Potter fan, I’m thrilled with the prospect of watching this movie. The story follows Newt Scamander played by Eddie Redmayne as he travels and creates a record of magical creatures.
Moana is touted to be as epic, if not more spectacular than, Frozen which was released in 2013. The story is about the adventures of Moana as she looks for a mythical place.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
What happens if you try to steal sensitive information about the Death Star? There are probably a lot of things that could go wrong. The Rogue One would be interesting to watch if only for how the resistance fighters will set about to accomplishing this feat.
