2014: The Year in Reviews (Films That Didn’t Get Released)

So we went over everything that came out (most of which I saw, if you couldn’t tell). Now we’re gonna go over what didn’t.

This list is populated predominantly with indies that weren’t given release dates, many of which will end up on VOD at some point over the next year, films I’ve been tracking for over a year that still haven’t come out, or movies that got pushed into the new year, probably because of quality issues. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, in some cases. Because it allows me to reevaluate. I can decide if I want to keep paying attention to it or drop it altogether.

These are all movies that either had dates and got moved, or are ones I talked about back in January that still haven’t come out. I’ll remind you what it’s about, tell you what the status of it is, and decide whether or not I want to continue paying attention to it for next year’s Film Release Calendar.

Here are the films of 2014 that didn’t get released:

Aloft

What I said about it back in January:

“Written and directed by a woman.”

“Sounds weird.”

Status:

It’s going to be at Sundance. Which is promising.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Sure. At least I know it’ll be at Sundance.

American Heist

What I said about it back in January:

“Seems like a B movie.”

“Which is also what this film has.”

Status:

It was picked up by a new company and they’re planning on releasing it at some point in 2015.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Sure. I’m sure it’ll be VOD, but why not? Seems like an easy watch.

Anesthesia

What I said about it back in January:

“I enjoyed Leaves of Grass.”

Status:

No idea. Should definitely come out at some point in 2015, though.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Yes.

Barely Lethal

What I said about it back in January:

“I want to know what Samuel L. Jackson is doing in this.”

Status:

Should come out in 2015. Seems like a VOD dump in February or August.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Samuel L. Jackson. Yes.

Big Game

What I said about it back in January:

“Samuel L. Jackson is the president. As soon as I heard that, I was in.”

Status:

2015 for sure.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Oh hell yeah. Did you not hear that synopsis? This is like, Escape from New York meets The Grey.

Born to Be King

What I said about it back in January:

“It sounds interesting.”

Status:

Not shot yet. Still not shot. Which means I have to drop it and wait for them to actually make it, if that ever happens.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Can’t. Have to wait.

Boulevard

What I said about it back in January:

Mostly just a rating.

Status:

No word. Will probably come out this year.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Yes. Robin Williams.

The Bronx Bull

What I said about it back in January:

“This is that Raging Bull “sequel” or whatever they were doing, which means I have to see what kind of train wreck this turned out to be.”

“Not that it’ll be great, but they have a cast.”

Status:

No clue. How many years is this now that I’m tracking it?

Will I continue tracking it?:

Have to. Morbid fascination.

Brooklyn

What I said about it back in January:

“I’m in.”

“This subject matter appeals to me greatly.”

It’ll be at Sundance.

Will I continue tracking it?:

100% yes.

Bukowski

What I said about it back in January:

“Written and directed by — wait for it — that’s right, you guessed it:  James Franco.”

“That’s it. That’s all. I just wanted you all to know that.”

Status:

No idea.

Will I continue tracking it?:

No. These Franco movies — I can’t deal with them. They always get dumped VOD, and they’re boring and pretentious. I can’t keep going with this.

Burying the Ex

What I said about it back in January:

“I’m in. Sounds fun.”

Status:

Not a clue.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Why the hell not?

Will I continue tracking it?:

It’ll be on the March Release Calendar.

Carol

What I said about it back in January:

“Ooh, shit, a new Todd Haynes movie.”

Status:

Don’t know, don’t care. In no matter what.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Absolutely. It’s been shot, which means I track it until I see it.

Caught Stealing

What I said about it back in January:

“Did you see Pawn Shop Chronicles? No? It’s probably for the best.”

“I doubt this’ll be better.”

Status:

Hasn’t been shot, doesn’t look like it’ll ever be made. Or if it does, it certainly isn’t coming out this year.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Nope.

Child 44

What I said about it back in January:

The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet

What I said about it back in January:

“This sounds exactly like a movie up there (Cooties), only with people in the 1700s instead of kindergarten.”

“Either way, okay.”

Status:

Delayed. Apparently only Ian McKellen’s scenes have been shot.

Will I continue tracking it?:

I’ll give them another year.

Cut Bank

What I said about it back in January:

“This thing’s got a cast. Who made it? TV director. Okay, so who wrote it? TV writer.”

“This must have been a really good read, to get so many people on board.”

“It’s a thriller. These typically read better than they film.”

Status:

Getting a 2015 theatrical release.

Will I continue tracking it?:

The cast is too interesting to not. I have to.

Cymbeline

What I said about it back in January:

“All right.”

“Directed by the same guy who did Hamlet with Ethan Hawke in 2000.”

Effie Gray

What I said about it back in January:

Escobar: Paradise Lost

What I said about it back in January:

“My worries are that this was written by an actor and it isn’t directly about Escobar.”

“These kinds of movies don’t usually end up being particularly good. At best you’re getting Last King of Scotland.”

Status:

They said it would go VOD in December, but it never did. It’s coming out January 16th, so I’ll see it soon. This will be on the January Release Calendar.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Already answered that question. I’d have seen it a month ago if it actually came out.

It’ll be on the September Release Calendar.

Okay.

Every Thing Will Be Fine

What I said about it back in January:

“Wim Wenders is directing.”

Status:

No idea.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Close call. For now, let’s say yes. But I reserve the right to change my mind.

Ex Machina

What I said about it back in January:

Will I continue tracking it?:

It’ll be on the April Release Calendar.

March 6, 2015

Will I continue tracking it?:

It’ll be on the March Release Calendar.

Final Girl

What I said about it back in January:

“Mostly because now I look for “horror” type movies that can also be interesting and not of the norm. Since we all know I hate that supernatural shit, and I respond well to things like You’re Next. So I hold out hope that movies like this could be watchable.”

“So I’ll keep tracking it. No expectations, but maybe it’ll be all right.”

Status:

Saying 2015, but I feel like I’m two years into tracking this one.

Will I continue tracking it?:

No, but I may throw out a blanket rating (say… 2.5 stars) for if this ever comes out and I see it.

For the Dogs

What I said about it back in January:

“Sounds interesting enough.”

Status:

Status:

Apparently it might never come out because of some sort of rights or distribution thing happening where it’s just in limbo until someone pulls it out.

Will I continue tracking it?:

Sure. The cast is too impressive to not. Plus it’s interesting to see how long certain films wait before coming out. I’m going on my third year with this one. Most of the 2012s on my list came out by now.

The Green Inferno

What I said about it back in January:

“The new Eli Roth movie.”

“Guess who doesn’t give a shit?!”

Status:
