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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
