Movies - Looking Forward

These are a few of the movies I am really looking forward to.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

As mid-level Star Wars fan I have to say that I am a "little" excited about Friday's Clone Wars. I don't like the character designs, they remind me of the awkward animated mini-series or the abysmal failure that was Batman Beyond. Nevertheless, Star Wars with the directors vision, exactly as they intended will be interesting to watch. Besides, I have a feeling they may introduce Darth Vader's Apprentice.

Pixar's: Up

Pixar has always made really likable character's and perhaps inspired by the chess player in their short films, this movie will be a heart warmer. I don't think it will be as good as Wall - E but Pixar has a good average. Ratatouille not included.


I have always preferred the original Dragon Ball animé to the newer Dragon Ball Z storyline. The old one seems more like your classic, personal story and Dragon Ball Z just lost its personality. I have no qualms about people saying this movie will be terrible. I'm sure it will, just like the forthcoming G.I. Joe, but I'm still going to have to go watch it.

Red Sonja

I grew up watching Arnold Schwarzenegger movies. Conan: The Barbarian was one to remember. There was what I think was a spin-off called Red Sonja. As a young kid, I was captivated by her red hair. Perhaps this is why I enjoyed Heavenly Sword so much? I saw part of it recently on T.V. and it was absolutely terrible. But I had good memories of it.

Apparently Robert Rodriguez is remaking this movie. I was a fan of El Mariachi and Desperado but my interest ended there. He made a movie called Planet Terror which I guess some film students might call it artistic but I didn't enjoy either way. Rose McGowan starred in this movie and she will apparently play the part of Red Sonja. :S What, couldn't you tell that was her in that heavily airbrushed poster? Or were you confused by the boobs painted on a girl that has none?

Here is another poster for you. She looks more like Rose here.

Harry Potter: and the Half-Blood Prince.

I read all the books since the release of the last movie and I am truly excited to see this one. In my opinion, the best of all 7 novels. Sad to see this story slowly coming to an end.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

The X-Men movies were some of the best comic book movies released recently. I hope this doesn't milk the franchise for more than its worth.

Star Trek

I enjoyed most of these movies but I am concerned about the directors interpretation. What movies are you guys looking forward to? Not a fan? Why not? I have actually met a few people who are against movies. XD. Silly.

Nostalgia is a funny thing, no? it makes you like something even though you KNOW its not that good. lol. I know how you feel about "Red Sonja". there is a Hindi movie called "Pyaar mein kabhi kabhi" which I feel the same way about.

I want to see the new Harry Potter as well, will probably wait for the DVD or Bluray, though.

I focus on our Netflix queue much more than movies in theaters. Just got Vantage Point and The Bank Job in the mail. Looking forward to watching Matthew Fox's acting in Vantage and an exciting true story that The Bank Job tells. Another reason why I am interested in TBJ is that I remember watching a documentary about the same group of robbers on Masterminds on Court TV years ago.

You've met people that are against movies? I bet they are very religious.
