So let’s end Cheesy Romance Month 2 with one of the most talked about and controversial films of 2015 to date. Granted this is by far not a romantic comedy, but it sure as shit is cheesy in its badness so I feel like it can qualify for the theme. I have been told all week that I should not see Fifty Shades of Grey. For the first time in my critic career, people pleaded with me not to see this movie. It certainly was a strange change of pace to say the least. But I was not to be deterred!

Keep in mind THIS LIST IS NOT ITEMS I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING! That is a completely different list. This list is a collection of games and movies that I feel will cause quite a stir when they are released and are something, as the title suggests that we should keep an eye on as we march forward into the new year. Also keep in mind when it comes to video games that the game does not have to be released in 2015 but can be a rerelease or a remastering to make the list. With that being said, let’s start with the video games. Continue reading “Ten Movies and Video Games to Keep an Eye on for 2015”
