Funny People - 7/31/09
This movie looks like it could be pretty good. Really I'm looking forward the the cameos and one-liners. There are a lot of actors that I like in this movie, too. Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, and Jonah Hill are together again for this film. And this guy Ken Jeong has been in EVERYTHING lately and he's always hilarious. Lately I've seen him in The Hangover, Role Models, Knocked Up, and Step Brothers ... All really good movies. He's never the main character but he's always got his own side plot.
District 9 - 8/14/09
Alright, I don't usually go for alien invasion type movie. Typically alien movies are poorly filmed and just end up looking cheesy. However, this movie really sparked my interest. I like how the trailer leaves you hanging. It keeps you guessing and really makes you want to see what the hell is going on. I just hope this movie lives up to all of the hype it's created.
9 - 9/9/09
I'm a big Tim Burton. However, when Tim Burton is affiliated with a film he tends to overshadow anyone else that works on the film. If I spent years directing a feature film and producer Tim Burton got all the credit I'd be pretty pissed. With that aside this movie looks like it could be pretty entertaining. I've read a lot of mixed feelings about it. Apparently it's not quite up to snuff for some people's expectations. Honestly, that's to be expected. Tim Burton's work is held at very high level. If die hard fans feel this standard is not met you can bet someone's going to bitch about it. If I end up seeing it in theaters then that's great. If I have to wait to rent it from the Redbox, well then so be it.
Zombieland - 10/9/09
Hell yeah, it's another zombie movie! Zombie movies are what I live for. Even if this was the worst reviewed movie in the history of movies, I would still have to see it. As a bonus it's a zombie comedy! You'll notice in the trailer that the zombies can run. If you've ever been paranoid about the zombie apocalypse you can agree with me that running zombies are the worst kind of zombies. I'm always excited to see someone's cinematic view on the undead.
Couples Retreat - 10/9/09
Again, lots of funny people in this movie. (Ken Jeong is in this one too!) This looks to be a romantic comedy about the trials and tribulations of being in a long term relationship. Maybe it's just me, but my opinion of couples movies seems to hinge on my current romantic status. When I'm in a relationship romantic comedies are funny and cute because that stuff happens to us and blah, blah, blah. So if you're single maybe go see Zombieland instead? Hey, it's your call.
Where the Wild Things Are - 10/16/09
Who can forget this timeless childhood story? Okay, I don't really remember what happens in the book, but I'm almost sure that I really liked it. This movie seemss like it's going to be fun, cute, and heartwarming. It looks like the type of movie that both kids and adults can enjoy. It's not like one of those mind numbing cartoons that leaves you wanting to pull your hair out.
2012 - 11/13/09
December 21, 2012 is the date Earth will take a cataclysmic turn. Well, that's what "they" say anyway. I don't know what's going to happen but I'm really glad that they're making this movie. Just from watching the trailer it looks amazing. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is the mass panic and ritual suicides. I guess you can't have your cake and eat it too.
New Moon - 11/20/09
I'm not the biggest Twilight fan but I have to admit that this is my new movie saga addiction. I don't know if I'll read the books but I will definitely go see the second movie! No, I'm not going to see Robert Pattinson ... or Taylor Lautner with his shirt off. You know what, don't judge me.
