The Most Anticipated Films of 2015

The Oscars are over and now it's time to look forward to some of the blockbusters that will be making their way to theaters this year. When it comes to some of the most exciting releases, there seems to be a constant trend on what to expect this year: sequel, after sequel, after sequel. Although this year doesn't offer much originality, there are some great franchises that have a new chapter coming their way. Some are much more long-awaited than others:

"Jurassic World"

Jurassic Park and its sequels have had their share of major hits and major misses. While the original Steven Speilberg picture became a classic, "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" failed to live up to its predecessor. "Jurassic Park III" was a hit with fans, yet it's been nearly 15 years since we've had an addition to the franchise. The trailer has surely proven that we may have another hit on our hands. For the first time in the franchise, the park is open...

"Terminator: Genysis"

Let's be honest. Isn't this the whole reason we wanted Arnold Schwarzeneggar to no longer be in politics? Another Terminator film. Well, it's finally time for the Governator to go back to being the Terminator. Let's just hope the aging acting hero doesn't fall flat like the Arnold-free "Terminator" sequel.

"Spectre" (007)

The last time we saw Daniel Craig's rendition of James Bond in action, we were not disappointed. "Skyfall" proved that Mr. Bond is still a box office smash in the 21st Century. Considering the size of the budget for the upcoming "Spectre" film, it looks like Sony will be pulling out all the stops once again; especially with a storyline that goes back the original Sean Connery Bond films.

"Black Mass"

We've seen Johnny Depp in the mob-themed "Public Enemies" and "Donnie Brasco" before. This time around, we are getting another spin from Depp that looks to standout amongst the rest. This time, he'll don the role of notorious criminal Whitey Bulger in a film co-starring Benedict Cumberbatch!

"Furious 7"

It's crazy to think that the "Fast & Furious" franchise is releasing it's seventh chapter this spring. Featuring the late Paul Walker, the franchise has all its major stars together for what looks to be another epic adventure. However, the question remains: With Paul Walker gone, will this be the last "Fast & Furious" film we'll see?

"The Avengers: Age of Ultron"

"The Avengers" was one of those films that left next to no one disappointed when the credits rolled. By the looks of what's to come in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," it looks like Marvel's collective superhero franchise hasn't missed a beat. Let's hope we can say the same when it hits theaters May 1.


Disney finally created a film based on the classic section of its theme parks of the same name. A film of this nature can be a major success or a major flop. With that said, this George Clooney-led film has endless possibilities.

"The Hateful Eight"

A movie so anticipated, Quentin Tarantino nearly cancelled the project when parts of "The Hateful Eight's" script leaked online. Starring Channing Tatum, Samuel L. Jackson (of course) and Kurt Russell, this western about bounty hunters following the Civil War has the makings for another Tarantino classic.

"Mission Impossible V"

Didn't we say all we had to with the last "Mission Impossible" film? I guess not, because a fifth one is on the way this year. One thing that can be said about this franchise: not one film can be considered mediocre. Each of these adventures starring Tom Cruise have been non-stop action from start to finish.

" Star wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens"

This movie has a lot riding on it. Let's face it: The "Star Wars" prequels (Episodes I - III) were major disappointments compared to the original trilogy. George Lucas single-handedly destroyed the backstory of "Star Wars" by using green screens for nearly every second of all three prequels. Thankfully, Lucas is not a part of this project, and J.J. Abrams has returned the franchise to using physical sets for much of the film. This Christmas, we may finally get the film "Star Wars" fans have wanted since the trilogy.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
