Movies to look out for in 2010 (Part I)  

Posted by CK in ,


If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a huge movie buff. I love movies. I watch almost every kind out there, be it comedy, action, thrillers, horror, romance, foreign films, anything. It must however, be noted, that I rarely if ever watch Hindi movies. Nothing against Bollywood except to say that 90% OF THE MOVIES SUCK. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it. I do make the occasional exception like A Wednesday which I thought was a stellar piece of acting from both Naseruddin Shah and Anupam Kher. I loved that one.



Now, back to the topic at hand. Movies in 2010. Here’s a list I got from timesonline.com and I’m going to comment about just the ones I find interesting.

 


1. Avatar: First off, I know it's a 2009 movie and shouldn't feature in the list but DAMN, what awesome visuals. It's got Sam Worthington (Terminator: Salvation) and the movie honestly looks brilliant. Well, at least the scenes involving the planet Pandora do. I can't wait.




 


2. Clash of the Titans: So, here's Sam Worthington again! This time as Perseus looking to lay some serious pain on Hades. I'm a huge Greek Mythology fan, so I'm going to love this.





3. The Green Hornet: Okay, so Seth Rogen as the Green Hornet? Really? I don't know. This can either be really good or really bad. I'm really out to lunch on this one. I guess we'll have to wait.




4. Resident Evil: Afterlife: To be honest, I'm bored of Resident Evil. There's a virus, T- or G- or whatever, it gets out of control. First in 2002, then 2004, then 2007 and like clockwork in 2010. I wonder what the story will be this time. :|

5. A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas: Okay, I'm a Kal Penn fan, but why would he do this?? He's in the Obama administration as the Associate Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement. Does he really need another Harold and Kumar, especially after Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay which was the unfunniest movie since since Epic Movie. 

6. Highlander: Again, a fan of the Highlander TV show with Adrian Paul. I then watched the Christopher Lambert movies which were AWFUL. Each one worse than the last. Now, as with Star Trek they're doing a reboot. Let's see if it'll work. I hope it does. The concept is kinda cool.


7. Legion: First off, check out the poster. How cool does that look. Anything that has fantasy/horror with Angels and stuff is good with me. Now, a brief of the plot:
"After God loses faith in humanity, the archangel Michael (Paul Bettany) is the only one standing between mankind and the apocalypse. This time using angels as the act of Biblical judgment, God's wrath descends on Earth to exterminate the world's population. In a desperate, last-chance gambit, Michael leads a group of strangers to a small, New Mexico diner to protect a young waitress who may be pregnant with Christ in his second coming."

Again, a fan of Paul Bettany who I haven't seen in a while now.







8. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time: Whoa! I was just doing an image search for the poster to this movie, thinking to myself, Jake Gyllenhaal? Really? But check this out. The dude has buffed up! I'm a big fan of the videogame and I have yet to play The Two Thrones but this is EXACTLY how the Prince looks in the game. Love it.









9. The Wolfman: I've seen the trailers and I'm not terribly excited by this one. I loved the classic 1924 and 1941 versions. But Benicio Del Toro's version doesn't seem to bring anything new to this, I feel. Let's see. It is a remake after all. I'll hold judgement on this one.









10. Gulliver's Travels: Jack Black is back as Gulliver. :) Enough said.







11. Predators: Okay, so I didn't hate the AVP movies but that's because I wasn't going in with any expectations. This is a Robert Rodriguez movie. The story involves a group of the toughest humans alive abducted and taken to the home planet of the invisible super-hunters. Pursued through the strange alien jungle they are picked off one by one until only one survives. I think there's a rumored cameo from original Predator star Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Thanks for the tip-off.

I second your views on 'A Wednesday'.

PS: Re: Kal Penn... maybe he has a lot of time on his hands. Even after swatting flies...

I don't even know why I like the dude. He's made some pretty crappy movies. I just do, though.
