Watch | Read | Listen {May 2016}

Some months I never step in a movie theater and other months I pretty much live there. There are three movies I'm dying to see in May (Captain America: Civil War, Alice Through the Looking Glass, and X-Men: Apocalypse). It's a take-all-my-money situation. I also NEED A Court of Mist and Fury this instant. Luckily, it comes out tomorrow. 


Captain America: Civil War
In Captain America: Civil War, one year after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultronan act regulating superhuman activity fractures the Avengers into opposing factions. Tthe United Nations is preparing to pass the Sokovia Accords, which will establish an international governing body to monitor and police the rapidly growing superhuman population. The team is divided over the actTony Stark supports oversight because he feels responsible for creating Ultron, while Steve Rogers has lost faith in the government because HYDRA manipulated S.H.I.E.L.D. since its foundation. {Watch the trailer} This looks amazing! Can't wait to see it! (May 6)

Love & Friendship
Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale) takes up temporary residence at her in-laws' estate and, while there, is determined to be a matchmaker for her daughter Frederica (Morfydd Clark) -- and herself too, naturally. {Watch the trailer} I've actually never read Lady Susan, which I'd like to change before watching this film, which looks wonderful. (May 13)

The Angry Birds Movie
Find out why the birds are so angry. When an island populated by happy, flightless birds is visited by mysterious green piggies, it's up to three unlikely outcasts - Red, Chuck and Bomb - to figure out what the pigs are up to. Voiced by Peter Dinklage, Tituss Burgess, and Jason Sudeikis. {Watch the trailer} I never played the game, but I'm always up for seeing hilarious kids movies. (May 20)

Alice Through the Looking Glass
Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to the whimsical world of Underland (this time through a Looking Glass) to find The Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) in a horrible state, with that she must save her friends from Time, a creature part-clock, borrow the Chronosphere, which The Red Queen (Helena Bonham-Carter) wants also, and change the course of Underland's fate to save The Hatter. {Watch the trailer} Yay! I love these movies! Tim Burton's movies are so wonderfully weird. (May 27)

X-Men: Apocalypse
Since ancient times, the first and most powerful mutant known as "Apocalypsehas been worshipped as a god. But when Apocalypse awakens from a hibernation of thousands of years, he is disgusted to find out what the world has come to and decides to destroy humanity and build a better world. Now, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) lead a team of young X-Men to face Apocalypse and defeat him. {Watch the trailer} I love the X-Men movies since I've been watching them since I was a kid, so I'll definitely be seeing this. (May 27)
