Movies I’m looking forward to (2007 edition)

January 3rd, 2007

A few of the films that I want to see coming out this year (in release date order):

  • For Your Consideration. From the makers of Looking for Guffman and Best in Show (and A Mighty Wind, which I haven’t seen yet). Should be fun, but uneven like the rest.
  • The Fountain. Darren Aronofsky’s latest film, promises to be spectacular, difficult to understand and fun. Been looking forward to this for a while.
  • Stranger Than Fiction. An IRS agent begins to suspect that he’s the character in a novel. Whee! I love modern surrealism.
  • Last King of Scotland. A lot of Oscar buzz around Forrest Whittaker’s performance as Idi Amin. Definitely worth a look see.
  • The Illusionist. Well, I liked the last movie about a magician… 🙂 (Actually, this one came out first in the US, it’s taking forever to get here).
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It looks intriguing, a return to the style of original underground comic book.
  • Spider-Man 3. Loved the first two.
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End. Loved the first two.
  • Transformers. Oh please oh please let this not be a complete piece of rubbish.
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Although I’m looking forward to book 7 more.
  • The Simpsons Movie. Maybe this is where all the jokes they took out of the main series went?
  • License to Wed. Movie about marriage prep courses.
  • Ratatouille. It has a rat in it, how can I resist. And it’s from Pixar.
  • Stardust. Magical Fantasy based on a story by Neil Gaiman.
  • Beowulf. Adult fantasy made using the same technology used in The Polar Express. Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary are writing the script.
  • Bee Movie. Don’t know much about it, but the early ads are smart and funny.

Only 16 that I have to see, I must be slowing down…
