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”.
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.
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.
Blades of Glory – Looks like it could be funny, but VERY crass.
Meet the Robinsons – Disney CGI without Pixar? Uh oh…
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?
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!
The Invisible – Trailers and the story look interesting, but will it work?
Spider-Man 3 – OH…. YEAH. ‘Nuff said.
28 Weeks Later – The first one was really good, can this one live up to it?
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
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.
Knocked Up – The trailer for this romantic comedy actually looks kind of cute, but I really HATE the title.
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.
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.
Evan Almighty – The first one with Jim Carrey was great a few years back. Can Steve Carrell pull it off?
Live Free or Die Hard (Die Hard 4.0) – I have to go see this no matter WHAT the reviews say.
Ratatouille – Pixar: Do I need to say anything else?
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.
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.
Hairspray – Wild horses couldn’t drag me to see this. John Travolta in drag as a fat woman? Brrrr….
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.
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.
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.
Revenge of the Nerds – Someone PLEASE poke out my eyes.
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.
Resident Evil: Extinction – Oy.
Saw IV – Haven’t seen III and I probably won’t see this one either.
Bee Movie – Seinfeld is back, but as an animated bee? Could go either way.
Fred Claus – Ah yes, another cynical Christmas comedy.
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.
National Treasure: Book Of Secrets – I thought the first one was unexpectedly good and I’m hoping this one is as well.
Alien vs Predator 2 – Well, at least Paul “it wasn’t my fault AVP stank” Anderson didn’t direct it.
