Ask anyone about the best decade in geeky movies and 9 out of 10 times, they’ll point to the 80’s. (Don’t listen to that one person who disagreed.) We had Blade Runner, Tron, Terminator, Back to the Future, Star Wars, Star Trek.. The list goes on. It’s too early to say if this decade can even match the 80’s, but it’s shaping up to be pretty significant in its own right.

Though superhero and comic book movies make up the majority of the geeky movies being released, good ol’ sci fi and monster movies aren’t too far behind. Some movies that we were sure would bomb and be terrible are actually looking quite good now. After seeing the trailer for Godzilla on IMAXlet’s just say that I’m glad to be proven wrong. (Who could blame me, after that whole disaster of a 90’s movie?) Hopefully, it’s not all hype.

We previously featured 5 Blockbuster Movies to Geek Out over in 2014, but we all know that 5 isn’t enough anymore. So here are 6 more geeky movies we can’t wait to see this year!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Starring: Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan

Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo

Release Date: April 4

Disclaimer: I’m not a Captain America fan. For the same reason why I dislike Superman, I try not to pay too much attention to him. He’s a bit too white-bread and the lack of a personality just turns me off. Though I’m still not convinced that Chris Evans is a ‘star’ (go ahead and roll your eyes right now), I’m looking forward to see how Steve Rogers handles being in a world where mass surveillance and drone warfare is king. Also, those trailers featuring the Winter Soldier were nothing short of bad-ass!

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Starring: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx

Director: Marc Webb

Release Date: May 2

Comic book fans already have an inkling as to what’s going to happen in this sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man, but for Spidey newbies, expect a fun ride with villains, villains, and more villains! We’ll be seeing Oscorp in this movie and based on the trailers, Dane DeHaan is looking to be a perfect fit as Harry Osborne.

Godzilla

Starring: Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe

Director: Gareth Edwards

Release Date: May 16

Is this the Godzilla movie we’ve been waiting for? With Bryan Cranston in the lead, I sure hope so. Fantastic monster movies are few and far between so here’s hoping it’ll kick off a new trend. This is what IMAX screens were made for! Giant monsters/robots/aliens/creatures battling it out for our entertainment.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Starring: Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman

Director: Bryan Singer

Release Date: May 23

Out of all the movies featured today, I’m most wary of X-Men: Days of Future Past. I liked X-Men: First Class well enough, but that was before they introduced time-travel into the mix. I know not to judge a movie by its premise, but it’s not too promising. I sincerely hope I’m proven wrong! Here’s the description: “The X-Men send Wolverine to the past in a desperate effort to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants.” What do you think?

Guardians of the Galaxy

Starring: Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana

Director: James Gunn

Release Date: August 1

Not a lot of people–hardcore comic book fans included–expected a Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Think of it this way: We’re going to see a talking raccoon and a tree that only says its name make it to the big screen before we get a proper solo Wonder Woman movie. But hey, I’m not hating. Like many others, I wasn’t aware of Guardians of the Galaxy before this, but seeing the trailer has got me psyched to see it!

Interstellar

Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain

Director: Christopher Nolan

Release Date: November 7

It’s about the discovery of a wormhole. That’s all we know about it, officially. We’re not surprised that we’re told so little since Christopher Nolan is notorious for being very secretive. With a stellar (get it?) cast, we have no doubt about the grade-A acting we’re going to see here. If Nolan’s past films showed us anything though, the premise is only the bare minimum of what we’re going to see on the big screen.
