Watch | Read | Listen {March 2014} + Sponsor: Bookworms in Dresses

Last month, I saw The Lego Movie with my little sister. Lately, it seems like I keep seeing movies that aren't on the list of films I want to see, but that's okay because I usually end up seeing them on Netflix anyway and that's much cheaper than going to the theater. But this month, I really really want to see The Grand Budapest Hotel and Divergent

MOVIES

The Grand Budapest Hotel
This film by Wes Anderson is about Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendery concierge at the famous Grand Budapest Hotel, and Zero Mustafa (Tony Revolori), the lobby boy. Gustave teams up with Zero to prove his innocence after he's been framed for murder. Also starring Edward Norton, F. Murray Abraham, Adrien Brody, Willem Defoe, Bill Murray, Saeirse Ronan, and more. Watch the trailer here. (March 7)

Mr. Peabody & Sherman
Using his genius invention, the WABAC machine, Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell) and his adopted son Sherman (Max Charles) hurtle through time and meet history's greatest people. They go back in time to repair history after Sherman messed it up trying to impress a girl. This looks so fun; I'm definitely going to see this with my kid sister. (March 7)

Veronica Mars
A continuation from the TV series, this movie follows Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell), a former high school detective, who returns home to Neptune, California after her ex-boyfriend Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring) is accused of murder. I didn't watch the show when it aired, but now I'm obsessed! (March 14)

Bad Words
Jason Bateman is Guy Trillby, a guy who lost a spelling bee as a kid and so he finds a loophole to enter a spelling bee contest as an adult. I have to admit, this looks pretty funny. (March 14)

Divergent
Based on the bestselling book and set in a dystopian future, this movie is about Beatrice Prior (Shailene Woodley), who lives in a city divided into five factions. She's in Abnegation (selflessness), but after discovering she's Divergent, she makes the life-changing decision to become Dauntless (bravery). I NEED to see this! (March 21)

Noah
Biblical Noah (Russell Crowe) has a startling apocalyptic vision of the world and builds a massive boat in order to save his family (Jennfer Connelly, Emma Watson, Logan Leerman) from the coming flood. Personally, I'm not usually into biblical stories, but this one looks amazing. (March 28)

Other movies coming out in March:
  • 300: Rise of an Empire (March 7)
  • Enemy (March 14)
  • Need For Speed (March 14)
  • A Birder's Guide to Everything (March 21)
  • God's Not Dead (March 21)

  16. Did you like "The Lego Movie"? I LOVE it! I'm excited about "The Grand Budapest Hotel" It looks colorful and fun! I'm not attracted to "Divergent" at all, and I don't know why. I will wait to read reviews about it.

  17. There are so many movies that I want to see, but living on the peninsula means the nearest theater is so far away!


    Veronica Mars looks so good!

    I can imagine that The Budapest Hotel is a great film - not only because the hotel is pink, what I really like :)
