So you’ve got the rest of this semester, spring showers, exams and god knows what else to look forward to (read, dread). But it’s not all doom and gloom: you’ve got end of term parties, cocktails, sun and these awesome flicks to look forward to in 2014.
The Monuments Men – February
A seriously impressive crew of Hollywood A-listers line up for this George Clooney film based on a true story. Watch Jean Dujardin, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman and Bill Murray star as a group tasked with rescuing pieces of art seized by the Nazis during WWII.
Muppets Most Wanted – March
Muppets. I don’t feel like there’s anything more that needs to be said.

I know, I know. March is a really long way away.

The Interview – December

Franco plays a talk show host who accidentally gets involved in a plot to assassinate the leader of North Korea, with Rogen as his producer.
