New year, new movies, new list.

Y'all know the drill. Tell me what movies you'll pay good money to see in theaters, which ones can wait for rental, which ones you may watch years from now late at night on AMC if you're really bored, and which ones look so bad you can't stop giggling just thinking about them.

The Usual disclaimer: Release dates are always subject to change. You never know which studio those pesky North Koreans will hack next. And I may have missed a few. I'm sure you'll let me know.

(No Hobbit. But that's okay. 2015 is bound to break all kinds of box office records. You have the return of Star Wars. The sequel to most successful superhero movie of all time in Age of Ultron. More superheroes with Fantastic Four and Ant-Man. The return of beloved franchises with Jurassic World, Terminator and Mad Max. Remakes and reboots with Poltergeist and Point Break. Sequels with Mission Impossible 5, Hunger Games 4 and Insurgent. So talk to me. Will this be the greatest year in motion picture history or will you be staying home playing video games?)

While me & my movie buddy might get wasted and see any number of these for the gettin drunk in a theater angle, I'm very happy I won't HAVE to go to the theater until may and won't have to go back again all year. Avengers and mad max. That's it. Then again, we haven't seen even leaked test footage for ant man yet, and when I first heard about Gotg, I thought, well, this will be the first comic movie I've skipped since Jonah hex and it ended up being one of the most fun marvel movies ever. So I guess it depends on the trailers. But yeah, unnecessary reboots and anything after empire strikes back won't be something I'll be spending money on.

There are plenty of those that I'll end up getting on Blu Ray, but since I refuse to ever step foot in a theater for any reason, I guess I'll just wait patiently until they come out.

Why do you refuse to step foot in a theater?

For the price, I don't want to have idiots talking on their cell phones, kicking the back of my chair, my feet sticking to the floor, etc. I can wait a couple of months, buy the Blu Ray and watch it in the comfort of my home with as many people as I want, pause it whenever I want, and watch it over and over as many times as I want for no additional cost. I'm patient, I don't care if I have to wait. The last movie I saw in a theater was the first Transformers movie and the only reason I did that, I was on the way back from a convention, it was hot and we wanted to get somewhere air conditioned for a while. Otherwise, I wouldn't have bothered with that either.

Fair enough. For me, it's worth it for the experience of seeing it on a big screen, oftentimes in 3d, but I also find if you go to nerd movies opening weekend, there's very little screaming babies, chair kickers and cell phone talkers. A drama, comedy or documentary I absolutely agree about watching at home, but I'll be damned if the first time I see age of ultron is on a whimpy ass tv.

I've got a big screen, I can't stand 3D and I want to enjoy a movie on my terms. I find nerdy movies to be even worse than others because you've got a bunch of people who have few social graces much of the time. I used to go to theaters all the time, I remember taking time off school to go several times first day for some of the biggest movies, but today... forget it. I'll just wait.

I feel exactly the same way. The only reason I go to the theaters in the first place is to avoid spoilers (which is tough for the six months until the Blu-Ray hits). If that wasn't an issue I'd see all my movies on Blu-Ray.

And you are just like me in buying all of your Blu-Rays instead of merely renting them. Not having to return them is the biggest plus for me. I can rewatch them whenever I want to.

I don't care about spoilers. Pretty much everything is spoiled before I see it, big deal. I've pretty much forgotten by the time the movies come out on Blu Ray anyhow. Patience is a virtue.
