Films I am intending to see this year

  1. Hot Fuzz – no, I haven’t see it yet.
  2. 28 Weeks Later… – the sequel to 28 Days Later.
  3. Sunshine – another Danny Boyle film which Gia has been involved in.
  4. Spiderman 3 – coming out this summer, at last.
  5. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End – which is out around my birthday.
  6. Shrek the Third – enjoyed the first two and has some interesting cameo voices.
  7. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – because it’s Harry Potter. No David Tennant this time though.
  8. The Simpsons Movie – Not the biggest fan of The Simpsons (prefer Futurama/Family Guy) but should be good.

And next year we have The Chronic-what-cles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, which hopefully will be as good as the first one.

Side note: My British English spelling dictionary in Firefox does not recognise the word ‘movie’.

    And rightfully so. 😉

  2. Hot Fuzz is good (8/10), although the last 15/20 minutes are a little over the top. 28 Weeks Later looks ‘interesting’, not sure how this is going to fit in with Danny Boyle’s fairly art-house low-budget original. Sunshine looks good, and a lot of people have said it’s similar to Event Horizon, which is a great movie.
    You haven’t mentioned the new Transformers movie — by Michael Bay and starring hot-new property actor; Shia LaBeouf. The trailers look pretty decent.
    I am looking forward to Zodiac, the new movie by David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, The Game & Panic Room) a crime thriller with Jake Gyllenhaal, based on a true story from David Fincher’s personal experience.
    Synecdoche, New York which sees writer Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich & Adaptation) in his directorial debut, which should be interesting.
    Of course, there is Grindhouse, directed by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino in a double-feature back to back movie, which guest director faux-trailers spliced inbetween. Also, The Eye an American remake of Japanese j-horror movie, which is directed by the pair behind French thriller Ils – Them
    Other films which look interesting include:
    * Bug,
    * 1408 a thriller starring John Cusack & Samuel L Jackson,
    * The Reaping a movie about Biblial Plagues starring Hilary Swank,
    * The Lookout starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and directed by Scott Frank &
    * Black Snake Moan starring Samuel L. Jackson.
