Broken Projector: Amazing Movies You Have to Wait a Year To See

The Avengers

Marvel Entertainment

Last year around this time we were growing tired of the summer blockbuster bloat, so we took a break by looking ahead to the future that’s now the present. We’re feeling a bit winded yet again by all the city-stomping, stadium-lifting largeness, so it’s time to take refuge once again in the eternal potential of amazing movies that we can’t see for another year. Yes, the summer blockbusters of 2015.

Fortunately, old robot Arnold Schwarzenegger and Hulk are here to guide us.

Plus, we’ll discuss the concept of raising stakes in screenwriting by examining some movies that do it well, and we’ll praise Tom Cruise’s decades-long excellent for no other reason than to praise him.
