Movies I want To See In The Theatres

  • Aug 7, 2009
  • by
Though it's highly doubtful that I will see even a fraction of these films in the theatres, I thought it would be fun to draft a list of what may be some of finer examples of films that have been recently dropped or will soon be in theatres. Well, let me the revise that. A great deal of these will make it to the movie theatres although I fear a good portion won't come even close to theatres in my hometown or nearby. Even so, I will keep my eyes peeled for that off chance that they may somehow slip through the cracks. How nice would that be?
I liked Oldboy. I really did. Although I didn't see the other two revenge flicks Wook made, I'd be intewrested in seeing his take on the vampire legend. This should be one of the more promising films of 2009 & it's certainly on the top of my list as far as films I must see goes. I would prefer to check this one out in the theatres but will wait for the DVD if that's not possible.
See the full review, "Thirsty For More!!!".
I Sell the Dead
This indie/international gem has already garned all kinds of great feedback from film circuits or festivals everywhere. Although I don't believe there is necessarily anyway of predicting a cult item, this one appears to have instant cult status & it will be intriguing to say the least on how American moviegoers react to it when it drops this month. I can hardly wait to check it out.
District 9
I've been rather curious about this one. It should be a good popcorn flick if nothing else & I can already see that a few of my friends are gonna surely jump on this as soon as it lands. I can't say that the excitement is killing me as of right now but I wouldn't mind seeing it on the big screen.
H2: Halloween 2
From what I've read thus far, this one will have nothign to do with the original Halloween 2 although it does pick up immediately after the conclusion of Zombie' s Halloween redux. The article in Fangoria magazine really does strike my fancy & it will be coool to see what Rob does with this one. Supposedly it's less polished fare & far more brutal or nasty than the last one. Sounds like bloody fun if you ask me. Will report back soon once I've had the chance to digest it.

Moon DVD
Luckily, this one made it to my local theatres but I still haven't rocketed out to the multiplex to see it as the tix are expensive as hell. I am waiting on a friend to give his ok on this one before I invest my hard earned money but the online reviews or synopsis are certainly forcing me to reconsider my decision.
2009 Movie poster
I don't know when we will see this float through the multiplexes in my hometown but I am really wanting to check this out on the big screen. For some reason or another, I just don't see myself as excited about watching it on my in home entertainment system. I would rather see it while enjoying a tall Coke & some seasoned popcorn if possible. Fingers crossed.

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

that is cool! Thirst would easily make my top 20 list for 2009. I missed Moon so I'll have to wait for it on dvd. I am hesitant of the new Halloween movie though...

saw Blood the Last Vampire JUly 10...

Thirst is definitely on the top of my list. The others can wait perhaps although there are a select few which would prolly be more enjoyable on the big screen. Oops, forgot to include Inglorious Basterds. Guess that makes me a basterd. LMAO
August 27, 2009
so am I, you basterd!
August 27, 2009
I guess we are all just basterds, dogs, or killers when it comes to Tarantino's films.

Don't forget to add the "u" when misspelling the title correctly. It's INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. Literate people often make that mistake. =)

Yepster, I seem to forget that sometimes. LOL

I'm really looking forward to DISTRICT 9, which Peter Jackson seems to have produced over here. I don't know if that's a good sign though since other directors have lent their names to movies that haven't panned out very well.
August 08, 2009
I think District 9 has some potential but I'm not going to set my expectations too high for now. I feel the same as you do. Otehr directors have associated their names with some pretty sucky projects which don't pan out out very well unfortunately. I do hope this one is good as the premise sounds pretty awesome & has a great deal of potential.
August 10, 2009
I gotta remember to keep my expectations low, but I can't help hoping for the best because at least it looks as if there's an original idea to this one!
August 07, 2009
I was thinking the same thing as @djevoke about Julie & Julia!  Gotta even out those vampires and zombies with something heartwarming and tasty :)
August 07, 2009
Yeah, I am totally with you on that. Anything involving the preparation of food will hold my attention & this should be an easy sell to one of my best friends. It's funny but my tastes in film are completely flipside from anyone in my circle of friends so we hardly ever agree on anything. :)
August 07, 2009
I feel like I'm playing "Which one of these is not like the other?" LOL....I can't wait to see Julie & Julia in the theater, I am also a big fan of all three ladies: Adams, Streep and Childs who my mom, @DoriHeath, used to quote when she was cooking!
August 07, 2009
Now that would be a fun game to play on lunch. LOL I somehow feel that I could probably talk atleast one of my friends into checking out the film about Julia Childs although I'm on my own with most of the others unfortunately. So you're mom was a great cook too I imagine? ;-)~
