Here’s a list of some of the movies coming out this year… some are highly anticipated, others are on the list because I find them interesting in one way or another. And yes, I know that I should have called this post “2007 Movie Roundup”. simple smile 2007 Movies: Release Dates And Thoughts

March 16
I Think I Love My Wife – Being married for 11 years, this one just struck my funny bone.

Shooter – Looks cool. Danny Glover is back and I like Mark Wahlberg.

March 23
The Hills Have Eyes 2 – Didn’t see the first remake, but from what I’ve heard do we really need a sequel to a remake?

The Last Mimzy – Mixed early reviews but looks like a good one to bring the kids to. (Don’t forget to enter the contest!)

TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) – Maybe this time they’ll get it right.

March 30
Blades of Glory – Looks like it could be funny, but VERY crass.

Meet the Robinsons – Disney CGI without Pixar? Uh oh…

April 6
Grindhouse – Tarantino and Rodriguez… won’t be for everyone but it’ll be a hell of a ride, I’m sure.

The Reaping – Modern version of the 10 plagues of Egypt. I wonder what the movies take on this will be?

April 13
The Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters – I’ve never seen an episode all the way through. Parents, PLEASE get a babysitter if you go see this one!

April 27
The Invisible – Trailers and the story look interesting, but will it work?

May 4
Spider-Man 3 – OH…. YEAH. ‘Nuff said.

May 11
28 Weeks Later – The first one was really good, can this one live up to it?

May 18
Shrek the Third – Should be fun, although I hope they don’t put in even more innuendo in this one than they had in Shrek 2

May 25
Angel-A – Nothing but rave reviews at Sundance, but I didn’t have a chance to see it. Supposed to be an amazing film from one of my favorite directors, Luc Besson.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: At Worlds End (POTC 3) – Man, I really hope this one is better than the second one.

June 1
Knocked Up – The trailer for this romantic comedy actually looks kind of cute, but I really HATE the title.

June 8
Hostel II – More of the same or will it bring something fresh?

Ocean’s 13 – Ok, sue me: I actually LIKED the first two. Hopefully this one is up to par.

June 13
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer – The first one was weak, so it wouldn’t take much for the sequel to improve on it. I’m cautiously, weakly optimistic.

Fido – Saw this at Sundance and it was AWESOME. Go see it.

Nancy Drew – Here’s one for my daughter. I hope they don’t screw it up.

June 22
Evan Almighty – The first one with Jim Carrey was great a few years back. Can Steve Carrell pull it off?

June 29
Live Free or Die Hard (Die Hard 4.0) – I have to go see this no matter WHAT the reviews say. simple smile 2007 Movies: Release Dates And Thoughts

Ratatouille – Pixar: Do I need to say anything else?

July 4
Transformers – Not a fan of the toys, TV shows or the comics, but it looks like it’s going to be a wild ride and probably lots of fun.

July 13
Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix – I know it’s going to make a gazillion dollars, but these are starting to come across as kind of ponderous to me.

July 20
Hairspray – Wild horses couldn’t drag me to see this. John Travolta in drag as a fat woman? Brrrr….

July 27
The Simpsons Movie – One of the most popular animated shows that I’ve barely watched. I’ll bet the movie will be fun. For adults.

August 3
Underdog – From the photos I’ve seen of this I just have to say “be afraid.” This should have been a CGI animated film, NOT live action.

The Bourne Ultimatum – Loved the first two and can’t wait for this one.

August 10
Rush Hour 3 – Do we really need a third one?

The Signal (limited) – Saw this at Sundance and I highly recommend it if you get a chance to see it.

August 24
Revenge of the Nerds – Someone PLEASE poke out my eyes.

August 31
Halloween – Don’t mess with the classics!

Trade – Another Sundance hit that I didn’t get to see. Not a happy movie but it’s supposed to be very powerful.

September 21
Resident Evil: Extinction – Oy.

October 26
Saw IV – Haven’t seen III and I probably won’t see this one either.

November 2
Bee Movie – Seinfeld is back, but as an animated bee? Could go either way.

November 9
Fred Claus – Ah yes, another cynical Christmas comedy.

November 21
I Am Legend – I know nothing about this beyond the basic premise: Will Smith is the last person on Earth, except for all the vampires.

December 21
National Treasure: Book Of Secrets – I thought the first one was unexpectedly good and I’m hoping this one is as well.

December 25
Alien vs Predator 2 – Well, at least Paul “it wasn’t my fault AVP stank” Anderson didn’t direct it.
