Movie to look out for in 2010 (Part II)  

Posted by CK in ,

I'm back and here goes. Where were we? Right.

12. The Book of El: In a post-apocalyptic world, a lone hero, Eli (Denzel Washington), guards the Book of Eli, which provides knowledge that could redeem society. The despot (Gary Oldman) of a small, makeshift town plans to take possession of the book.

Let's see, Denzel, who I like just made a movie called The Taking of Pelham 123 which I didn't like. Which is not something I ever thought I'd say about a Denzel Washington movie. But let's see if he makes up for it. Gary Oldman is a favorite any day.

13. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader 

To this I can say, YAY!! As you'd know from my previous post on Narnia,  I'm a huge C.S.Lewis & Narnia fan. And I loved Prince Caspian. I don't quite know why the film had crappy box office returns but I'm really hoping they make all 7 Chronicles. This one is something I'm eagerly waiting for.

14. Shrek Forever After

Who doesn't love Shrek? I know it's movie four so people are probably starting to get a wee bit tired of it but I think they still have one good one left in 'em.  

 15. Sex and the City 2 

I know it's sacrilege for a guy to admit he likes Sex and the City but I'm going to say it. I like it! It's funny, the chemistry between the characters hasn't gotten old after 6 seasons. But after this movie, please stop. You can't keep milking it just cause it made sense once. And yes, botox is your friend.

16. Tron Legacy 

Okay, so I don't remember the original Tron movie cause I was 2 when it came out. But I do remember seeing those ridiculously cool tron bikes and stuff when I was a little older thinking, "Nice!" Well, it's 27 years later and time for a sequel. Look for it at the end of 2010. 

17. Twilight Saga: Eclipse

I think I'll let media overkill do the job for me here. I don't care to see Robert "Sunken-eyes" Pattinson or Kristin "My life is going to end if I don't kiss Edward" Stewart. I can't go 10 feet without Twilight this or Twilight that. But unfortunately, screaming teen girls being a huge demographic, they will make all 4 movies pretty much back to back.

18. Alice in Wonderland 

Now, this is a movie I'd give an arm to see. Tim Burton, the genius dark director is back to take what is, in actuality, not a childrens novel at all and subject it to his even more twisted vision. It is going to be AWESOME. Burton has with him, the usual suspects, Helena Bonham Carter, Danny Elfman and Depp. And just when you think Johnny Depp can't pull any more avatars out of his hat, he gives us... 

19. Inception 

If you loved The Dark Knight and I did, Christopher Nolan is back with the most underrated actor of his generation, Leo DiCaprio in a weird sci-fi thriller. I saw the trailer, didn't understand a goddamn thing but I can't wait to watch it.

20. The Expendables 

Okay, this is just testosterone overkill. Sly Stallone, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, alongside upstarts Jet Li and Jason Statham, for a story about a crack team of mercenaries sent on a mission to terminate a South American warlord. I am weeping tears of joy.


21. The A Team 

Does anyone remember The A Team. I thought they were cool with that cool van and Mr.T. I thought he was the biggest black man I'd ever seen in my life. Well, I was 8 when I first saw them. Here is your first official look at Bradley Cooper as Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as Sgt. "B.A." Baracus, Sharlto Copley as Capt. "Howling Mad" Murdock, and Liam Neeson as John "Hannibal" Smith in the Joe Carnahan-directed The A-Team.

22.  Toy Story 3

I thought they were cute. Maybe they still are. Might download this one. 

23. Shutter Island

My favorite actor-director combo is back. Leo DiCap-Martin Scorsese. Come on!
The Gangs of New York, The Departed, The Aviator and now a horror! I CAN'T WAIT! Look at that poster. :D

24. Robin Hood 

Where has Russel Crowe gone? I haven't seen him since... oh wait. He's in England. In tights. Beating up bad guys. Generating Oscar buzz before it even begins. 

25. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I 

"We know it's the last part and we know it has to end. No? JKR won't write another? Damn it! How do we make this last just a little long... wait a minute! I'll just make the last part into last part- part 1 and last part - part 2. mehehehe."

26. Iron Man 2 

Tony Stark is back. :)

Mickey Rourke is the cybernetically enhanced villain Whiplash and Scarlett Johansson appears as Black Widow, a Russian assassin who may also be joining Gwyneth Paltrow as potential love interest. Don Cheadle replaces Terence Howard as Colonel James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes, who later becomes Iron Man’s heavily armed back up, War Machine.

That's going to be my Super-hero pick of the year.

Nice tip-offs. Look forward to watching Robin Hood...

Thanks for the update. My thoughts:

1. Too many post apocalyptic movies are being made these days!

2. If you're a Chronicle of Narnia fan, you'd do well to see the original movie series produced by the BBC (early 1990s).

I really enjoyed watching them and reading the books when I was younger.

The new movies incorporate too many special effects, it seem so me, and not too much narrative, which is probably why the second one didn't do too well.

3. They should bury the Shrek and Toy story franchisees. Shrek 3 was bad enough. No one appreciates bad sequels, and sequels are rarely good.

4. I hope they don't screw up Robin Hood. The same story's been told over in previous movies, so they've either got to tell it really well or offer a new angle or point of view.

5. I'm gonna miss Terrance Howard in Iron Man 2.

I agree. End of the world's getting kinda old. I'm SFX junkie, so I don't mind the Chronicles. Even I'm wondering about Robin Hood. It's been done waay too many times and Costner's was quite good.
