Hey folks. Here’s the five movies due to be released this year that I am most looking forward to. Pretty much what the title said. Oh, and they’re in no particular order.
Here’s the why. I haven’t seen any of director Joe Carnahan’s stuff, but I like the look of this. I’m a massive fan of the old show, and I sure hope Joe is too. At least he picked the right actors. I think. TBR June 11th.
Here’s the why. The original ‘Tron’ was strangely awesome, mostly due to its leading cast. That’s why the new one has my attention, as they brought back Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner. The User abides. TBR December 17th.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Here’s the why. Jerry Bruckheimer, producing, knows what makes a genre movie work. Judging by the trailer, they went as all out on this one as they did on the ‘Pirates’ movies, in terms of casting and visual impact, so it may be the first really decent — or good — video game adaptation. Well, I’ve heard some decent things about other video game adaptations, but if this is one is really fun, it will probably be the benchmark. TBR May 28th.
Here’s the why. It’s Christopher Nolan’s latest “mid-Batman” movie. ‘Cuz, you know, he made ‘Batman Begins’, then ‘The Prestige’, which was quite good, then ‘The Dark Knight’, now ‘Inception’, then ‘Batman 3’ or whatever. I’m thinking it’s going to run along the same kind of quality. TBR July 16th.
Iron Man 2
Here’s the why. ‘Cuz it’s just so cool. TBR May 7th.
Yeah, I know these are all action movies, and most of them have a sci-fi/fantasy bent. I’m an 18-year-old male who enjoys things like shooting guns, smoking pipes and wishing I had a girlfriend. Sue me.
