Movies, like years, have seasons. Usually the big budgeted ones are released during summer, probably to take advantage of drunks who’d appreciate even the most horrible flicks. After that comes the drought season: full of crappy flicks you’d forget as soon as you leave the theater—or those that’d simply make you mind-numbingly stupid by just watching it.
Thankfully—OHJOYOHJOYOHJOY!—awards season is on its roll already!!! (Just because they’re not “talking” about awards yet doesn’t mean the studios aren’t pushing movies under your nose. Sneaky bastards. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Things We Lost in the Fire, In the Valley of Elah, Lions for Lambs, Gone Baby Gone
...) I love awards season. Mostly because I get to laugh at some of the movies that try to be good when they actually have no soul. MWAHAHAHA! *choke* Er, what I mean is, even with all the red carpet crap, I’d still trade the depressing award-nominated to those unnominated films I’d enjoy watching.
Now, here are some upcoming holiday movies I’m looking forward to:American Gangster
(11/02). Ridley Scott
, who looks like he’s back on top of his form; Denzel Washington
, an incredible actor; coupled that with the raw and very talented Russell Crowe
... what more can I ask for?
(11/16). It’s no secret that I have a crush on Angelina Jolie
. In fact, I feel comfortable in my femininity (lacking as it is) to say that if I stand next to Ange for more than 30 seconds, I’d spontaneously grow a penis. So yep, going to see this one where—ohhh, my good lads—we’re going to see her nekkid, heh. ;)
I Am Legend
(12/14). Have yet to read the 1954 horror novel by Richard Matheson
but I think the movie looks verra verra interesting.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
(12/21). Tim Burton
is fucking BRILLIANT. His movies are quirky, creative, funny, dazzlingly strange and magnificently gothic. I particularly love it when he and Johnny Depp
P.S. I Love You
(12/21). Even if Hollywood cock it up and butcher Cecelia Ahern
’s book, I’d still watch it. Hello... did you not see the uber yummy Gerard Butler
What about you; any movies you can’t wait to see?
