Movie randomness  
Movies coming out this year that i'm at least somewhat interested in, pending actual information about their quality of course.

Well, that i can get somewhat interested in before the fact. There will probably be some other movies, romantic comedies and such, that will be well done and i'll want to see when they come out, but that i'm not particularly excited about ahead of time. Sci-fi and action tend to be the genres that build the most suspense beforehand (and have the most disapointment after the fact)

Hellboy - April 2nd
Kill Bill Volume 2 (at least if i get around to seeing the first one and like it) - April 16th
Van Helsing - May 7th
Troy - May 14th
Shrek 2 (maybe, doesn't really seem like a movie that was well set up for a sequel though) - May 21st
Harry Potter - June 4th
The Chronicles of Riddick (what the hell? This sounds like some third rate science fiction movie, but it's starring Vin Diesel. How have i not heard of it before?) - June 11th
Garfield the Movie (? That may just be a little too scary) - June 25th
Spider-Man 2 (Dr. Octopus should _not_ look like that!) - July 2nd
King Arthur - July 7th
A Cinderella Story (might be good) - July 16th
I, Robot (oh please don't let Will Smith or anyone else fuck this one up) - July 16th
The Village (no idea what this is, except that it's by M. Night Shyamalan, so it might be good) - July 30th
Alien vs. Predator (after the years and years people have been clamoring for this, it better be good!) - August 6th
Blade: Trinity - August 13th
The Incredibles (might be good, might be stupid) - November 5th
Alexander (What is it with all the ancient historical action movies this year?) - November 5th
The Ring 2 (I'm theoretically interested in this because The Ring was a fairly well done movie whose plot was imported from Japan. I had my eyes closed for a lot of it though, so i'm not sure if i'll actually go to see the sequel) - November 10th
The Brothers Grimm (It's by Terry Gilliam and starring Heath Ledger and Matt Damon, might be good :) - November 19th
Deep Rescue (Well, it has space shuttles, so it's sorta sci-fi :) - December 1st
The Phantom of the Opera - December 4th

Any suggestions for anything i missed?

How many of those will i actually end up watching? Very few probably, since i have no one to go to movies with right now, and probably won't for most of the year.
Current Mood: random

There are only 2 or 3 movies on that list I'm interested in.

I'll leave it as an exercise to the reader to guess which ^_^

Random commentary:

Riddick - Saw a trailer for this out of the blue, and my reaction was, "Huh?". Big-budget sci-fi peice outta nowhere. The trailer did have Judy Dench in it, which is kinda cool.

Van Helsing - This looks like it will be absolutely terrible, but the one redeeming feature from the trailer was that he must have used at least 3 weapons taken straight from Castlevania.

Potter - At least it has a less saccharine directory this time. Yay.

I, Robot - God, I fear what they'll do to this.

Grimm - Hadn't heard about that, sounds intriguing. Gilliam is always good for a totally surreal evening.

Phantom - Eh? Movie?

Speaking of odd things on the horizon... had you heard that evidently Johnny Depp will be playing Willy Wonka sometime in the near future?

Phanthom of the Opera Movie(s)
"Phantom - Eh? Movie?"
I know there is an animated Phanthom of the Opera movie. I think it was made in the 70s or 80s. (I just remember watching it on tv when I was younger). Also, there is another Phanthom of the Opera movie that I think was made in the 40s or 50s.
I remember hearing rumors about this current movie a couple of years ago but then I have not heard anything until now. odd. Apparently, Minnie Driver is playing Carlotta (which I guess is somewhat fitting based on the fact that Ms. Driver can play a spoiled girl very well =)). I'm wondering if they will have the songs in the movie like they do on the broadway show. It will be interesting.
