I watch movies almost everyday. Would like to offer you a list of what I’ve seen in the last year or two. Movie storm in the middle of summer! Yeeey! List of Must See Films 2013-15 is here! If you’ve seen all of them already, CONGRATULATIONS – you can sleep tight as you are fully up to date. :)

This first post will be a bit longer, as Im adding all part of trilogies and so…but I promise to do it more often and keep it a bit shorter :) TV series will come soon in a separate post. Get that popcorn ready, seat back, relax & enjoy!

How to Train Your Dragon: Animation, Adventure, Family. Funny & sweet cartoon full of adventures.
1 (2010) 8.2 IMDb
2 (2014) 7.9 IMDb

The Hobbit: Legendary Adventure & Fantasy. Based on the novel The Hobbit, or There and Back Again by J.R.R. Tolkien. Watched all three in the IMAX 3D – best to fully experience the story & special effects!

The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) 7.5 IMDb

Escape Plan (2013) 6.8 IMDb

42 (2013) 7.5 IMDb – Biography, Drama, Sport.

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) 8.2 IMDb – Biography, Comedy, Crime – made me sick & uncomfortable at some point – but that’s life I guess.

Gravity (2013) 7.9 IMDb – Sci-Fi, Thriller. I watched it few times, it really takes you out there…

Captain Phillips (2013) 7.9 IMDb – Biography, Drama, Thriller – that made me cry. It is just bunch of people on the boat perhaps but there is no need for the special effects in a real life…

Dallas Buyers Club (2013) 8.0 IMDb – Biography, Drama. Impressive.

Elysium (2013) 6.7 IMDb

Olympus Has Fallen (2013) 6.5 IMDb – Action, Thriller. Typical American movie with the real Hero & flags everywhere :)

American Hustle (2013) 7.3 IMDb

The Great Gatsby (2013) 7.3 IMDb – Drama, Romance. Loved it – the scenes, music, costumes & of course the message.

Her (2013) 8.0 IMDb – Drama, Romance, Sci-Fi. All we need is love, but What is LOVE? …is this how our “social” future will look like?

47 Ronin (2013) 6.3 IMDb

The Dark World (2013) 7.1 IMDb

Now You See Me (2013) 7.3 IMDb – Crime, Mystery, Thriller. So mysterious that you will have to watch it twice :)

1 (2010) 7.9 IMDb
2 (2012) 6.3 IMDb
3 (2014) 6.1 IMDb

The Expendables: Action, Adventure, Thriller. Well with this kind of movie – you either Love it or Hate it. I love all 3 of them! Fuck the story & special effects! All famous action actors (mostly from my childhood) in one movie PLUS famous film quotes in the right moments – That’s just the best idea for our fav Action Grandpas!!! There should be another one (4) in 2016 yeyyy 10 stars form me! :D

The Judge (2014) 7.5 IMDb

What We Did on Our Holiday (2014) 6.9 IMDb – Comedy, Drama. I love this one – its just so real & poetic in the same time. Film that makes you thing, smile & cry.

The First Avenger (2011) 6.8 IMDb
The Winter Soldier (2014) 7.8 IMDb

Chef (2014) 7.3 IMDb – Adventure, Comedy, Drama. Good fun for whole family – reminded me so much of my dearest fucking friend from NY – Isaac, chef, food& drink guru, owner of the Dirt Dog bar, Prague, Czech republic.

Nightcrawler (2014) 7.9 IMDb – Crime, Thriller. This one left me sad and disgusted not only about nature of the Showbiz but of the humanity as well.

Pride (2014) 7.8 IMDb – Comedy, Drama. “I don’t think that any movie, in 2015, will beat this one…” Hard to believe that all the hate against gay & lesbians has survived for so long – its clear these people are not the enemy here. #PrideinLondon #Think #Freedom

The Drop (2014) 7.1 IMDb

Mr. Turner (2014) 6.8 IMDb

Noah (2014) 5.9 IMDb – Action, Adventure, Drama. A great well known Biblical story with a potential…but bit of disappointment…

’71 (2014) 7.2 IMDb

The Maze Runner (2014) 6.9 IMDb

The Imitation Game (2014) 8.1 IMDb – Biography, Drama, Thriller. From my point of view this is definitely a movie of the year 2014! Already watched it twice and its just incredible story, actors & incredible example of ridiculous homophobia! Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing.

Gone Girl (2014) 8.2 IMDb – Drama, Mystery, Thriller. “Great! Now he thinks Im crazy and he is scared of me!” – some girl after the movie. Haha it’s a great drama but not the best choice for a first date for sure :D

Baby in the corner

Baby in the corner

Fury (2014) 7.6 IMDb

Interstellar (2014) 8.7 IMDb – Adventure, Drama, Sci-Fi. Fantastic journey in space, time & mind. This movie takes you so far away from our beloved planet Earth that it makes you appreciate an everyday life, family & love.

Big Hero 6 (2014) 7.9 IMDb – Animation, Action, Adventure. Made e laugh like a crazy person on the airplane from USA! Fun fun fun!

The Theory of Everything (2014) 7.8 IMDb – Biography, Drama, Romance. I’m sure you all well know a famous physicist Stephen Hawkins played by incredible Eddie Redmayne – impressive performance. Fantastic movie that makes you think, laugh & cry. Kind of has an effect of empowerment. Do not watch it if you are experiencing a heart troubles as it is 123min of pure emotions.

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) 7.9 IMDb

Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) 6.1 IMDb

Unbroken (2014) 7.2 IMDb – Biography, Drama. A real War story… good movie, but honestly when you growing up on stories and documentaries from the World War I & II you kind of have enough at some point.

The Hunger Games:

Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014) 6.8 IMDb
Mockingjay – Part 2 (2015) Coming soon

Divergent Trilogy:
Divergent (2014) 6.8 IMDb
Insurgent (2015) 6.9 IMDb

Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) 4.2 IMDb – Drama, Romance. Well it wasn’t even good enough as a Valentine evening entertainment… Comments from the cinema: “Actually I will give them one star more for the second half of the movie!” I like this one more: “A badly made Cinderella story they should turn it into the most expensive porn I have ever seen!”

Woman in Gold (2015) 7.4 IMDb – Drama. Maria Altmann, an octogenarian Jewish refugee, takes on the Austrian government to recover artwork she believes rightfully belongs to her family. This film is funny & tasteful… but still brings upa childhood memories & emotions. Great for a relaxing evening. My tweet after the movie – “@LesiaBi: Deeply touched by #WomanInGold, surprised by wise words from cinema employee…” He was talking about the power of films, about stories they share and the interesting discussions they trigger.

Jurassic World (2015) 7.4 IMDb – Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi. Well good movie to experience & enjoy 3D….dont expect more :)

Minions (2015) 7.0 IMDb – Animation, Comedy, Family. Laugh, fun & cute Minions you wish to take home with you! You just have to see it if you love to laugh and even more urgently if you don’t!

These two watched it with us! Get them from McDonald with the happy meal :)

  1. Believe it or not but I have not seen even 1 of the above mentioned movies. Oh yes, I’ve seen Taken – love the comments about the movie. Some movies should stay just one.

    What I find sad in the movie business is that there isn’t much of a new ideas happening. For example how many sequels had had Superman, or Batman or any movie in this case. Why there can’t be just one movie with no pressure to make a part 2? There was a boom not long time ago where all the old 80’s 90’s classics were awaken and redone like Terminator, Total Recall, Dirty Dancing, I can’t remember all of them. Actually it is easier to say what movies does not have the ugly brother or sister with the name Part 2, 3, 4… on their foreheads.

    Anyway a really nice surprise was the movie “We Are The Millers” This piece I can watch all over again and again, it’s so funny and easy and so stupid! But at the same time it is an original and we have not really seen anything like that before. Have you seen this one Les? x

    • Hahaaa forgot to tell you, you inspired me with “We Are The Millers” film, so much that I bought a DVD from Amazon with the next day delivery :D Love it! Will watch this weekend again! I should take it to our NEW YEAR get away! :) Xxx
