  1. messed up the Master synopsis

    • Thanks. Copy/Paste #FAIL

  2. I’m definitely seeing Looper, Killing Them Softly, Skyfall, Lincoln, The Hobbit and Django Unchained. Might check out a few others too.

    I really wish I lived close to an IMAX theater because I would go see Raiders too. That’s my second favorite movie ever after Empire Strikes Back.

  3. Slim pickins for me….
    Taken 2
    Wreck-It Ralph
    Noticed a lot of guns and people on the run and scary october films are found footage(I hate found footage)….disappointing…

    • LOTS of guns.

  4. ok for me my picks for me would be…
    1. Looper
    2. Cloud Atlas
    3. Skyfall
    4. Life of pi
    5. Rise of the guardians.
    6. The Hobbit
    7. Django Unchained

  5. Definitely seeing:
    Anna Karenina
    The Hobbit
    On the Road
    Killing Them Softly
    Django Unchained

    Cloud Atlas
    The Master

  6. the hobbit is the one im looking forward to the most, it will be the one to rule them all

  7. Cold Light of Day, Dredd 30, Stolen, End of Watch, Looper, Argo, Alex Cross, Lincoln, Rise of the Guardians, Frozen Ground, Deadfall, Zero Dark Thirty, and Jack Reacher are all going into my Netflix queue (and possibly Taken 2).

  8. Just FreKit!!!….look us up on Facebook

  9. Pitch Perfect seems to cheesy for me, but those white girls can sing and I just cant get over hoe good they sound.

    Life of Pi has cinematography is just to beautiful to behold and the story is definitely thought provoking

    Lincoln of course is a must see as well as Django Unchained

    V/H/S could have the paranormal activity impact so I need to watch this

    Dredd I want to see just so the trash that is Stallone’s “Judge Dredd” can be erased from my mind pallet

    Flight has some great plane scenes and I’d like to see how a man that saved hundreds of lives can go from hero to villain in one fell swoop

    Here Comes the Boom has a great concept and its good to see Kevin James to a drama type movie

    Honorable Mention: Cloud Atlas just to see if I have some sort of intelligence to figure out the story

    Jack and Diane just to see how a Diane turning inot a werewolf is tied into the movie

  10. 1. The Hobbit Pt.1
    2. Skyfall
    3. Bourne Legacy (being released end of September in South-Africa)
    4. Looper
    5. Taken 2
    6. Django Unchained
    I might go see Dredd 3D, Argo, Cloud Atlas, Red Dawn and Rise of the Guardians as well, but I’m still on the fence about most of ‘em – guess it depends on what’s left of the movie-budget.

  11. I really want to support Dredd 3D. Its a lower budget movie that is trying to distance itself from the terrible Stallone version. It is also bucking the Hollywood trend of watering down a franchise. It’s on the top of my list.

  12. 1. the hobbit
    2. looper
    3. skyfall
    4. cloud atlas
    5. red dawn
    6. wreck it ralph?

  13. outlaw,
    Loose The Impossible trailer, it gives away the movie.

    • I can throw a Spoiler warning in front of it – but yeah, it gives away A LOT.

  14. 1.the hobbit 2.skyfall 3.django unch. 5.unisol:the reckoning. are you sure that this is no direct to d.v.d release ?

  15. uni-sol is out of my list,the trailer has looked too bad. maybe on d.v.d .

  16. ooh,how could i forget – the man with t.i.fists-,it´s on nr.5 the uni-sol reck. is out.

  17. Definitely watching:
    Taken 2
    Killing Them Softly
    Wreck-It Ralph
    Twilight (Don’t judge me… I have to. The price I pay for women)
    The Hobbit
    This is 40
    Django Unchained

    Might watch:
    Finding Nemo
    End of Watch
    The Master (VERY on the fence on this one)
    Paranormal Activity 4
    Red Dawn
    Life of Pi
    Les Miserables

    And butter… WTF?! That seems like the most boring movie ever. And I don’t like Jennifer Garner’s face

  18. Waiting for Cloud Atlas…is it true Wachowski bro’s will direct Justice league if Man of Steel succedds come next summer?
