2010’s Film To Come

March 2, 2010 at 9:49 pm (Movies)



It’s the beginning of March (I thought it was pretty funny it snowed today, when there’s a Simpsons episode where they had a misprint of a 13 month calendar with the month “SMarch”, when at the beginning of that month Homer says “Lousy smarch weather…” as he’s coming in from a snow blizzard), and I have began to think about all the coming movie releases of the next 9 months (my movie pregnancy haha), along with the 4 films I’ve seen so far this year. I thought I’d give a recap of those 4 movies so far and a brief thought of how good/bad they were, and then move onto which movies I’m looking forward to the most in the next year and which I plan to definitely see.

First I saw the film Daybreakers (review posted on site and Facebook), which was a really campy vampire horror film. Willem Dafoe and Ethan Hawke are really great in their parts in the film, but a few parts can be a little too cheesy for their own good. Definitely worth a rent. I then saw Legion, which was a ginormous piece of crap worth noone’s time. After I came down with a very serious case of food poisioning E Coli, I saw Joe Johnston’s The Wolfman, which I did enjoy quite a bit more than I thought I would. It’s a fun B-Movie worth the trip to the theater, some really fun performances and a very fun gore-fest that had me entertained throughout the entire 2 hour time span. Sure the movie’s a little uneven and cheesy but it’s worth your time. Finally of course I saw Shutter Island and that’s one of the best films I’ve ever seen, 100% worth your time (check review below on site for more).

  • Alice in Wonderland-March 5th-If anything else I want to see this film out of curiousity, because I’m not 100% sure I like this movie or not. I don’t like Tim Burton, however I’m interested in Depp and Hathaway’s performances. I’ll make the trip out to the theater for sure for this one in the next week or so.
  • Hot Tub Time Machine-March 26th-It sounds ridiculous, it looks ridiculous, but I have a feeling I will really enjoy this movie, and will definitely make the trip to see this one on the Beta Convention this year, if anything else to be able to say “I remember on my senior beta convention I got to see “Hot Tub Time Machine” haha.
  • Clash of the Titans-March 26th-My Dad and I have already promised eachother we’ll see this. Plus, Liam Neeson plays god.
  • The Losers-April 23rd-I’m a big fan of Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and anything with him involving a graphic novel adaptation that’s not Watchmen catches my attention.
  • Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)-April 30th-I recently checked out the newest trailer for this, and I really can’t wait for this. Jackie Earle Haley is showing up as Krueger, and it looks to be a fun ride with some fun violence and great performances.
  • Iron Man 2-May 2nd-Iron Man 2…
  • Get Him to the Greek-June 4th-This is a spinoff of Russell Brand’s character from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, combine that with the very funny Jonah Hill, let the same director from F.S.M. direct and let Apatow produce, I’ll see it.
  • The A-Team-June 11th-Liam Neeson is Hannibal. Sharlito Copley has a southern accent. There’s a tank fight in mid-air. I’m logging on Fandango now…
  • Toy Story 3-June 30th-Although I’ve started to doubt whether or not this third film’s going to be any good, I have some confidence Pixar can do something really fun and heartfelt with this, I’m not going to expect any less.
  • Inception-July 16th, 2010-Christopher Nolan’s newest film since The Dark Knight, Leonardo Dicaprio is a detective that goes inside the mind, and it’s definitely my next most-anticipated film for the rest of the year. It looks really great and I hope it can live up to that. Cillian Murphy (Scarecrow), Ellen Page, Marie Coutillard, and Tom Hardy also appear.
  • Dinner for Schmucks-July 23rd-Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and Zach Galifianakis are some of my favorite comedy talents and they’re all teaming up for a promising screwball comedy.
  • Legend of the Guardians-September 24th-Really, the only reason I’m interested is Zach Synder’s involvement as director, I have no interest that it’s about the “Guardians of Ga’Hoole” book series.
  • The Social Network-October 1st-This is a movie based on the founding of Facebook, and it seems it’ll be a really interesting film on that, or it can be really pointless.
  • The Zookeeper-October 8th-It’s Kevin James talking to animals voiced by Adam Sandler, Sylvester Stallone and Rob Schneider, what’s not to like?!? Besides, Paul Blart worked out so well… Right?!?!
  • Red-October 22nd-Bruce Willis assembles his team of specialists (Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John Malcovich) to save his life after being attacked in his home. Sounds awesome, plus Morgan Freeman, I have no choice.
  • Due Date-November 5th-Todd Phillips’ newest film since The Hangover, Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis are teaming up on a road trip comedy so Iron Man can make it to his child’s birth.
  • MegaMind-November 12th-This seems to be one of the best-looking comedies of the year with Will Ferrell and Jonah Hill doing voices in it in a really interesting plot twist or two.
  • The Chronicles of Narnia 3-December 10th-I really hope this works after it’s switched hands so many times.
  • Tron Legacy-December 17th-I really need to see Tron…
  • The Green Hornet-December 22nd-My second most anticipated of the year, it has Seth Rogen, Michel Gondry (director of my favorite film of all time), and Christopher Waltz (one of the best villains of last year and in any Tarantino film), all in a superhero flick I can’t wait to see.
  • True Grit-December 31st-The Coens are doing another Western film since “No Country for Old Men”, count me in.

    The Tron Legacy trailer is awe-inspiring. I re-watched Iron Man last night and now I’m definitely greatly anticipating it but I’m really afraid it’s gonna suck. Kevin James is definitely proving he wants to be taken seriously as a comedic actor.

    The only movie I can see that you left off that I am really looking forward to is The Other Guys with Will Ferrell, Mark Whalberg, Samuel L. Jackson, and Dwayne “Rock” Johnson.

    I think i remember seeing that but not looking into the info, sounds interesting and potentially really funny. I’ll probably end up seeing it haha.
