It's a new year! A whole new 365 days of waiting for movies to come out so you can be let down later when they don't meet your expectations! Don't fret though, there's always plenty of sleeper hits or movies that you expect to be so terrible that they actually impress you...kinda like National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets. Yeah, I saw it. ...and yeah I actually had a little fun. When you expect to sit down and be forced to drink a glass of urine and it turns out to be just really sour lemonade, you're happy right? Right. National Treasure 2 was by no means a glass of urine, though it was predictable, over the top, and aimed at the 8-15 year old demographic...though I won't lie; there's a bit of that demographic inside me. I mean, the classic style Goofy cartoon by Disney at the beginning of the film was probably be favorite part. Anyway, on to business.
There's no podcast this week as I was busy planning other major events here in my town over the new year holiday. However, here's a short list of films (in order of release) coming out this year that I want to view...Enjoy.
Cloverfield - Shut up. JJ Abrams sold me with LOST, so I'll give this a shot.
Teeth - Just watch the trailer, hehehe.
Cassandra's Dream - Woody Allen...maybe it won't suck.
Rambo - What more is there to say?
In Bruges - Not a fan of Colin Farrell, but Ralph Finnes should help make up for it in this hitman comedy.
The Spiderwick Chronicles - So what if it's a Nickelodeon production?
My Blueberry Nights - A new Wong Kar Wai flick with Jude Law and Natalie Portman.
Be Kind Rewind - Michel Gondry's latest with Jack Black and Mos Def. Hopefully better and less trite than Science of Sleep.
Charlie Bartlett - A high school comedy I might not hate.
The Signal - A horror flick with a neat plot...could be awful, but looks promising.
Penelope - Christina Ricci with a pig nose, tee hee.
Horton Hears a Who - Dr. Suess ya'llz.
Inkheart - Brendan Frasier in a strange story based on the neato book.
Iron Man - Puuhhlease don't let this suck.
Son of Ranbow - A Garth Jennings project that looks pretty funny.
Speed Racer - Only cause I want to see how awful it will be.
Indiana Jones 4 - I've been waiting 19 years for this one.
The Incredible Hulk - Again. This time with Edward Norton. Good Grief.
Wall-E - You've heard my rant. Fingers crossed, I want to love this.
Hancock - Fresh Prince with super powers. The trailer made me chuckle. A little.
The Dark Knight - The next Batman installment that should make me soil myself with delight.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor - The Mummy 3 bitches! These movies are too campy not to love.
Okay so that's about what I could dig up for now. There are going to be loads more later, but release dates are always subject to change for things in production
