  1. wow, I didn’t know there were that many interesting, or at least entertaining, movies coming out next year. I might need to get myself a separate bank account just for my movie going experiences. :D
    Especially looking forward to Daybreakers, Iron Man 2, Inception, and most of all Inception.

  2. The future Kofi all the way to the year 2000?

    In the year 2000 tiger woods quits golf and focuses on the all inclusive “cocktail waitress” challenge.

  3. @jordi

    You need to go watch GABRIEL with Sam Worthing. LEgion is not a new concept by any means, and aside from the granny crawling on the ceiling it looks like a pretty meh film.

    OMG the angels have guns………………….. pffft. When times change so must your weaponry

  4. @ jordi

    “all-out, action-packed, dumb fun rollercoaster ride”

    I can handle that!! :)

    But not cheesy like Cobra or Over the Top which was cliched and “Over the top” ..sorry.. that was cheesy too !!


  6. wow, the american sounds AWESOME

    and grown ups?? adam sandler back in comedy?? sweet!

  7. I guess “Robert Rodriguez’s Predators” is either off the release schedule or unofficial rumor has it in the god-awful direct to video category?? Any truth to that?

  8. Adrien Brodey in a Predator film? I hope it’s straight to DVD…

  9. @SIN187UM

    I’ve not seen Gabriel thanks I’ll check it out. BTW I said it didn’t sound cheesy not that it was totally original :) The whole Angels with autos (hmmm I like that, catchy) point is that I hate films where the heroes have the opportunity to get better weapons but don’t and instead keep the same crappy sword/Glock/rolled up magazine for the entire fire-fight!


    Actually Cobra was one of the movies in my head when I wrote that :D

    ‘Crime is a disease. I’m the cure.’ How can you hate such classic lines :D

  10. @SIN187UM

    Just imdb’d Gabriel. No sam Worthington. Did you mean I should ring Sam and ask if he wanted to watch it? ;)

  11. I think Legion looks really cool, anything with Paul Bettany in is worth watching!

  12. @ DrSam

    “anything with Paul Bettany in is worth watching!”

    Including Wimbeldon? :)

  13. @gk333

    I’d agree with the Doctor on that one, even ‘Wimbledon’! :D

    Not even Bettany could make me watch ‘A Knight’s Tale’ again though.

  14. @ Old man

    Holy cripes, Predators! Adding that now! Thanks!

  15. @greenknight333

    Hell yeah, Wimbledon also features the god among men that is Sam Neill. And who can complain to Kirsten Dunst in a tennis skirt?

  16. I think the Saw movies have done a good job of having a plot and mixing it up. But the description of VII sounds just like the description of V and VI. And 3D? Honestly???

  17. Ooo, Gulliver’s Travels!

    Although Jack Black being in it makes me leery. Nothin’ against Jack, I just don’t go for the kind of movies he’s usually in. I liked King Kong and Kung Fu Panda, but those are the exceptions…

    And I’m dying to see how David Slade does Twilight. Admit it. You are, too.

    2010 may actually be a decent movie year.

  18. OK guys i read it all i am full of excitment BUT!!!! there is always a BUT… you guys didnt mention “Dead of Night” witch i am really REALLY waitng for… i red comic Dylan dog so i relly want to see this movie… any new news on this movie? reles date? i know it should be in 2010 i think the plan was around march but people i need dates. dates i need!

  19. Jack Black ruins any film he’s in. School of Rock would have been ALOT better with ANYONE else. I kept hoping he’d be eaten in King Kong (or at least squashed by a dino). He’s just REALLY REALLY annoying, so I KNOW I won’t be seeing Gulliver’s Travels with him in it.

  20. Hey guys, how come you didn’t list Dispicable Me?

  21. i'm mike watch so enjoy… it's vote! thanks movies…

  22. i'm mike watch so enjoy… it's vote! thanks movies…
