2014 Spring Movie Preview
The polar vortex, amiright? The weather has kept me locked up in my apartment trying to pretend the world isn’t freezing to death outside. But you know the problem with my apartment? Windows. There’s no way to completely escape the fact that outside it is colder than the icy stare of Taylor Swift when she’s lost an award she clearly thought she won. So we all need some good old fashioned Hollywood escapism to get us through the back half of winter. Here’s your 2014 Spring Movie Preview of what you should see every week, from now until the month of May aka when Hollywood decided Summer starts.

I’m sure it will be nice this weekend. Go outside. If not, go see Captain America again. Otherwise, this is what you’re working with:
As the great Pete Holmes said, “ugh, men. Right?”
And that brings us to May. Hopefully by now everyone has thawed. Go have a drink outside. You deserve it.
