Movies that I may see this year
Avatar – James Cameron returns to science fiction, with no ocean liners or clichéd love stories in sight.
I Love You, Man – This one could go either way, but the two leads bust me up every time I see them.
Up – Another probable winner from Pixar.
Watchmen – Zack Snyder’s long-awaited adaptation of the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons masterpiece. Unfortunately, we may have to wait a little while longer for this one: distribution rights are currently in legal contention.
The Wolf Man – I would normally eschew horror remakes, but with Benicio del Toro starring and the legendary Rick Baker doing the special effects, this might be a keeper.
Movies that I wouldn’t see with a gun to my head
Bride Wars – just the title and the fact that Kate Hudson is in it are enough.
Dragonball: Evolution – Anime brought to life. Oh joy.
Friday the 13th – What, the 10 sequels didn’t offer enough variations on “Guy in hockey mask runs around and kills kids at camp”?
He’s Just Not That Into You – and I’m just not that into 2 hours of torture.
My Bloody Valentine 3D – 3D is usually code for “suck.”
Race to Witch Mountain – so how long before The Rock has to return to wrestling?
Now how about you? What movies are you looking forward to or dreading in the new year?
