Ten films to look forward to.

102cTen films I have to see before the end of the year. All trailers can be found on www.apple.com/trailers, and, of course, YouTube.

  1. Sherlock Holmes. This one isn’t coming out until Christmas, but I’m sure that it will be worth the wait. This one will star Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, so it’ll be a double treat for me. Happy Christmas!!
  2. Public Enemies. I’m not quite sure what this is about, but it’s supposed to be really good and Johnny Depp’s in it. This is one JD I have faith in. He’s one of my favourite actors, so I’m not gonna let this one slide.
  3. The Hangover. A film about a post-bachelor party gone wrong, this is supposed to be the funniest film of the summer. I’m not sure when it’s coming out in the Philippines, but the trailer is hilarious and I have to make sure I see it.
  4. Fame. This is a remake of the 80’s show. I think that it’s a more modern version, since reworking the film but keeping the time setting would be sort of redundant. I haven’t seen the original, but I’ll make sure I do before watching this.
  5. The Boat That Rocked. This one’s coming out in August and I’m excited. It’s supposed to be a trip, especially since it’s made by the same people who made Love Actually. Bill Nighy’s in it, too.
  6. The Soloist. Here’s another Robert Downey Jr. film. This already came out in the US a few last month, but I don’t think it’s been released in the Philippines yet. If it has, I’m gonna throw a fit.
  7. Up. This is supposed to be Pixar’s latest, I think, and it’s coming out this summer. The trailer is hilarious and the storyline is really unique and interesting.. everything that Pixar is about.
  8. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I absolutely hate the producers for putting such a long delay on this one. As a Harry Potter fan I don’t think that this needs an explanation.
  9. Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. I don’t think I’ll be able to see this in cinemas unless I nag my parents to the bone (but that might make things worse), but I heard that this one is funny as hell, so I’ll make sure I find a way to watch it somehow.
  10. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. My summer would be incomplete without this one.

Of course, there are other films that are on my watchlist: Bruno, Little AshesHow To Be, Adventureland and (I just found out about this about 60 seconds ago) The Final Destination aka the 4th film.

The year may be almost halfway done, but there’s still a lot in store in the film department.

    I feel so out of the loop reading this list of upcoming films. I must admit that I have barely seen any newly released movies this year. The only movies I’ve seen are old ones (I would rather not disclose my means of acquiring them…) As entertaining as these classics are, though, I can’t help but feel that newly released films grab my attention so much better. Why…?

    In part, I think it’s safe to assume that it’s because films evolve with the audience’s tastes. Today’s audience is not a ’60s audience. But is that all? Maybe even that aside, today’s films are just a lot more engaging, with special effects and explosions, with dialogue playing a secondary part (at least, in blockbusters).

    Some films, however, despite all this, are timeless. That’s exactly why I can still bare watching some of them today. So having said all this… which of these ten films do you think are going to be watchable 40 years from now? :O

  2. That’s quite a list you got going there, Kaye. Much appreciated. I’d have to second what Lean’s been saying. I haven’t taken much time to go to the cinemas lately, but with summer in mind, that’s probably what I’ll get up to doing. Otherwise extracting them from isohunt.com. I’m glad that a lot of directors decide to project their releases past May. It’s going to make for a great summer with all them movies in mind. Don’t forget about the indie flicks either!
