Another new year has come, which means another new year of movies to look forward to! Here’s a list of the movies that I am excited about. Hopefully all of them turns out to be awesome. Nothing depresses me more than a movie I thought was cool but turned out to be a load of piss soaked shit.
I am Number 4
After watching the trailer the thought “Twilight with Mutants!” came to mind. But still, this movie has piqued my curiosity. I don’t know if it’s just me though, but the trailer makes this movie look eerily like the movie Jumper (starring Hayden “Darth Vader” Christiansen).
Lets hope it turns out better, ’cause Jumper fucking sucked.
Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon
Uh oh. Another bayformers movie. After the awfulness that was Revenge of the Fallen, where we find out that Devastator has gigantic metal balls and that Primes can go all Mufasa and manifest themselves in the clouds, I am a little bit scared of this movie.
I’m still going to see it though. Why? Because dude, it’s a movie with giant-ass robots. God knows how much I love robots.
To those who don’t know, the Hobbit is the story that sets up the whole Lord of the Rings Trilogy. It’s basically the story of Bilbo Baggins (Frodo’s uncle/relative/cousin/who the fuck cares), and how he bamboozles Gollum and obtains the One Ring of Power. I was a bit disappointed when Guilliermo del Torro stepped down as director for this movie (Hellboy 2 was awesome). But that disappointment all went away when Peter Jackson decided to make the Hobbit himself. Since he already made the LOTR trilogy, it’s only fitting he direct the Hobbit.
P.S. I think the Hobbit is going to be split into two movies. I’m not sure though (and I’m too lazy to google it dammit).
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are spoofing another genre; Sci-Fi! I can’t wait. I loved Shaun of the Dead’s take on zombie movies (Shaun of the Dead > Zombieland btw) and Hot Fuzz’s take on the buddy cop movie. I’m betting this sci-fi comedy is going to be just as awesome.
One caveat though is that Edgar Wright (The director of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz) won’t be directing Paul.
Cowboys and Aliens
Cowboys are fucking awesome. Aliens are fucking awesome. Put them together and…
Yes, Cowboys and Aliens will make your fucking head explode because it is so fucking awesome. At least I think it will… Obviously it’s not actually out yet (duh). Still, the trailer is sexyawesome (That’s actually a word. you don’t need to look it up).
P.s. Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford look BADASS!!!
Thor and Captain America
I don’t know which is coming out first (again, I’m too lazy to google, but if I had to guess I think Thor is showing this year and Captain America next year), but both movies look cool. I’m more excited about Thor though. Mainly because, I’m curious as to how Thor’s “magical” power is going to look in the big screen.
Xmen: First Class and Amazing Spiderman
I’m not really sure how i feel about these two movies. On the one hand since FOX and Sony just keep making X-men and Spiderman movies respectively, so that the movie licenses don’t revert back to marvel studios, they probably don’t give a shit about the quality of the movies they spew out. On the other hand, the Xmen trailer has its great moments and Andrew Garfield (the new spiderman) is a pretty decent actor. And who the hell am I kidding anyways, no matter how shit stained the movies are, I’m still going to watch them. For I am a sheep in the Super Hero Movie farm.
The Dark Knight Rises
Christian Bale reprises his role as Batman, Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. Tom Hardy as Bane. And of course, the movie’s being directed by Christopher Nolan.
Even though they haven’t begun shooting it yet, I know The Dark Knight Rises is going to be the most awesome movie ever!!! I love The Dark Knight Rises as much as 13-year-old girls love Justin Beiber!!!
