I haven’t been a big movie watcher lately proven by the fact that I’ve watched a whopping total of 8 movies this year (which is nothing compared to previous years when I used to easily watch 50+ movies in a year). Still, I’m always excited for sci-fi movies and here’s a whole list of them.
Pacific Rim: Maelstrom (February 23, 2018)
I don’t even care that there are about 9318301 (read: 465) days before the release of my most anticipated movie in ever. Though the cast looks great especially with John Boyega as lead, I do want at least some of my favorites back from Pacific Rim. The director isn’t even being open about their returns which asdfghjkl.
Black Panther (February 16, 2018)
I became a fan of Black Panther after watching Captain America: Civil War which obviously. The cast of this movie is amazing so far and this is probably my second most anticipated movie after Pacific Rim: Maelstrom. Meanwhile, there are two Black Panther comic series that debuted this year that I’ll be reading soon.
Wonder Woman (June 2, 2017)
I first got excited about Wonder Woman when I saw the SDCC trailer and panel for the movie. I think they’ve done a great job with the casting and I’m so ready for a female superhero origin story. The only thing I’m not all that excited about is the romance especially after a DC writer, Greg Rucka announced that she is queer. Side note: DC obviously seems to be better when it comes to LGBTQIA+ superheroes so I hope they at least address her sexuality in the movie.
X-Men: Apocalypse (May 27, 2016)
I’m not a hardcore fan of X-Men movies but they’re enjoyable to watch and yet I’m putting off watching X-Men: Apocalypse mainly because I just haven’t been in the mood. Haven’t even watched the trailer of Logan yet even after knowing X-23 is in it, oops.
American Ultra (August 21, 2015)
I remember watching the trailer for this movie sometime last year and though, it doesn’t have the greatest reviews I’m all for a funny sci-fi(-ish?) movie starring Jesse Eisenberg.
Suicide Squad (August 5, 2016)
I’m supposed to finally watch Suicide Squad this month and I’m not expecting much from it except that I hope I don’t fall asleep watching it, haha.
Thor: Ragnarok (November 3, 2017)
I’m most excited for this movie because of the return of Loki, obvs. Also super excited for Hela and Valkyrie, aahhh! (I was so glad to finally have a Marvel movie without Captain America in it only to have Doctor Strange in his place. Meh.)
Power Rangers (March 24, 2017)
I only came to know about Power Rangers when the trailer released last month and whoa, it looks so good! I wasn’t really expecting anything so it’s amazing that there are four PoC power rangers and only one white guy.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5, 2017)
BABY GROOT! Still not over just how adorable he was in the trailer. I really like the retro looks of these movies and really, what’s not to like. Marvel finally doing something right.
Ghostbusters (July 15, 2016)
Ghostbusters is another sci-fi comedy movie that I’ve been wanting to watch for the longest time and still somehow haven’t.
Watched any of these and liked them? Have any recs for me? What’s on your watchlist?
OMG, I never watched the Power Rangers trailer because I never though it could be any good BUT IT LOOKS REALLY GOOD.
Also very embarrassed I still haven’t seen Ghostbusters and the newest X-Men. And I completely forgot about American Ultra. Why do I even have lists on trakt when I don’t make use of them *headdesk*
Sometimes it can be great to have zero expectations, ha.
LOL and I only remembered American Ultra because I was going through my watchlist on IMDB for this post and saw it on there.
I think that the X Men movies are the only “super hero” type movies that I am always excited for. I recently saw the trailer for Logan, and I CAN NOT WAIT!
Great Top Ten! 😀
My Top Ten Tuesday!
Elena @ ElenaSquareEyes says
I CANNOT WAIT FOR BLACK PANTHER!!! It’s definitely the film I’m most looking forward to over the next few years.
The Top Ten Movies I can watch over and over again.
The only one I’m not excited about on your list is American Ultra A because I haven’t seen the first one yet (It’s on next weeks movie list though). Great list. I can’t wait for the new power rangers either. I love the old movie so much I hope they do a good job with it.
Here’s my TTT post

Pacific Rim looks great although I need to see the first movie. Not sure why I haven’t yet. And Black Panther should be good too. I hope Winter Soldier plays a role! Wonder Woman looks AWESOME after seeing that trailer- wow. Suicide Squad I really wanted to see, and in spite of bad reviews I’m still really curious.
Thor I’m sorta wait and see although I’m looking forward to Valkyrie.
I still haven’t seen Ghostbusters either, despite wanting to see it like mad when I saw the first trailer!
Apocalypse was good, but cheesy. I love love love X-Men, but I have given up on thinking that they will ever be masterpieces. They’re just good fun and also Michael Fassbender.
I watched American Ultra in August with Claire (from Bitches with Books) and it was weiiiiiird. Not at all what we expected!
Lauren @ Always Me says
I’m really looking forward to the Marvel movies you listed here! 🙂
maria helena says
I’m so looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2 and Thor Ragnarok!
Avada Kedavra says
Most of these movies are on my wishlist too. I have to catch up on movies that got released in the last few years. 🙁
Morgan @ Gone with the Words says
8 MOVIES OMG. I feel like all I do sometimes is watch movies haha 🙂 But this is a fantastic list! I’m not a big XMen fan but I liked Apocalypse- it was entertaining at least. You already know my Suicide Squad thoughts but Margot Robbie and Will Smith are awesome. And Ghostbusters!!! I think you’ll love it! I rarely laugh out loud in the theater and I laughed at least 3 times. Plus it’s just awesome and fun. Power Rangers looks surprisingly good! I had no expectations before seeing the trailer.
Yesssss Thor: Ragnarok sounds awesome (love the new cast additions!) and I hope they find a way either in this or in GotG2 to introduce Captain Marvel, even if it’s just a credits scene. WONDER WOMANNNNNNNN omg I am so hyped it’s unbelievable. Crossing my fingers that it’s as good as it looks. And Black Panther 😀 I am ecstatic waiting for that movie. He was such an awesome part of Civil War and I can’t wait to see Wakanda.

I’ve been horrible with movies this year, too. For Sci-Fi November I did watch a couple classics though, including Alien which was awesome. Sigourney Weaver vs. the creature from the black lagoon, basically. Haha. Ex Machina was good too!
OH MY GOD, that Power Rangers trailer! HOW had I not seen that yet??? *dies* As if my girlhood crush on the pink power ranger wasn’t bad enough already, haha.
