5 Must See March ‘017 Movies

I love writing this series.  Mostly because I can get myself hyped up for all the great movies coming out.  I started this series back in September last year and it feels like every month there is more and more amazing movies.  I don’t know about you but I don’t remember there being this many great films as a kid.  March is a big roll off into the season.  Last year two of the years biggest films were released in, Batman v. Superman, and Zootopia.  Suddenly, it’s not just spring we have to look forward to, but movie season.  Let’s get into the 5 must see movies this March, which is actually 6 because this month looks that good!

6. Power Rangers

I am surprised with a couple things about this movie so far.  First, I can’t believe it took them this long to cash in on this money train.  It would have made much more sense to make this film in the 90’s during the height of Power Rangers popularity.  Second, the preview actually makes this movie look decent.  We have been fooled by previews before, they’re getting better at previews than movies sometimes.  Like a few years ago when I originally thought they released a Power Rangers movie called, Pacific Rim.  This can’t be a good movie for real, can it?  Can it!?!

5. Kong: Skull Island

Oh, the movie magic of King Kong.  A rich history like this masterpiece deserves revisits.  Will they be able to catch our imaginations in the modern era of big, bigger, and biggest?  An all star cast featuring Tom Hiddleston, John Goodman, Brie Larson, and John C. Reilly, is a pretty good indication that they wanted to do this film proper.

4. Boss Baby

I mentioned earlier that last year March saw the release of Zootopia.  Well, March has quite the history of successful children’s films.  Out of the top 25 box office money makers in March history, 13 of them have been aimed at younger audiences.  3 of the top 5!  So, with Alec Baldwin being the rage of comedy for his recent stints on SNL, it’s hard to see this movie failing, whether it is good or not.

3. Ghost in the Shell

Yeah, I have not been sure about this movie since they announced it.  The 1995 anime was one of the biggest things when I was in middle school.  When they cast Scarlet Johansson as Motoko I rolled my eyes with everyone else, as much as I love the actress.  I just recently saw the preview for Ghost in the Shell and suddenly I am very excited.  It looks artistic, and unique, as long as they can keep to the quality storyline, they may actually pull this one off.

2. Beauty and the Beast

These live-action remakes have been pretty successful for Disney thus far.  And with some of the recent announcements on future projects, it looks to be a successful project for a while.  There is an amazing story to be told here, plus Belle is one of the greatest booknerds in fiction.  If Jungle Book was any indication, Beauty and the Beast will bring back the Disney magic we felt as kids.

1. Logan

By now we have all learned to keep our expectations down with the X-Men movie franchise.  Even Deadpool failed to woo me the way it did for plenty others.  But, with 71 reviews in, Logan currently sits at an impressive 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.  Being praised for its storyline and earning its R rating.  All signs are pointing to this being the Wolverine movie we’ve been waiting for.  Plus, look at that poster, that is a thing of beauty.

Thanks booknerds, and filmgeeks.

    All this month , Only thought in my mind has been “Don’t ruin , ghost in the shell . Don’t ruin Motoko . Don’t ruin Ghost in the shell” .

    Also Logan better be good , Hugh Jackman deserves a proper send off , X-men is the reason Comic book movies are back in popular demand and he is the chief reason for it

    This is a cool series. I’m terrible at tracking movie previews and I miss premieres all the time, haha. I’m pretty stoked about Kong and Beauty & the Beast, but I hadn’t even heard about the Power Rangers! I loved one of the many shows when I was a kid…*crosses fingers* Thanks for the lineup!

  4. I am really excited about both Boss Baby and Beauty & the Beast. And, I’ve heard really great things about Logan. I have to admit that the trailer made me tear up just a bit.

    Looking forward to seeing future installments of this series!

  6. Took them long enough to make a Power Rangers movie but I personally think it looks hella corny. Let’s see though, I’ll wait till the movie comes out on tv or something.
    Kong: Skull Island, Beauty and the Beast, and Logan!!!!! I CANNOT FLIPPING WAIT FOR THESE!!!!

      There is a good chance Power Rangers is gonna be terribly corny. But yeah there is enough good movies coming that it wont hurt too bad.

    I saw Power Rangers the other day, and since then I can’t stop thinking about it. Possibly the most enjoyable film I have seen this year so far.

    Sort of put off from watching Ghost in the Shell. I saw the animated film for the first time in January, and I just did not understand it, i was completely lost.

    I thought Beauty and The Beast was ok, but it was so similar to the original I thought it didn’t really justify its existence. It would much prefer Disney was more like Pixar, focusing on producing new content instead of remaking old movies to make more money.
