movies I’m looking forward to
January 2, 2012
After something of a lackluster year for movies I was really excited about (Captain America and Sherlock Holmes were about it), 2012 is shaping up to be super-awesome. (Links go to trailers.)
The Avengers. My favorite superhero movies of the last five years all in the same movie, directed by Joss Whedon. I could explode.
GI Joe: Retaliation. They made another one! They made another one! The Rock as Roadblock! Flint and Lady Jaye! I can be twelve years old forever!
Prometheus. Ridley Scott has made some of the greatest science fiction movies of all time (Alien, Blade Runner), and now he’s back in the genre. I don’t care if it’s a prequel, I don’t care what it’s about, I’m going to see this. It’s got spaceships.
The Hunger Games. The trailer for this impressed the hell out of me. Crunchy, far-future, dystopian SF FTW. Confession: I haven’t read the book, it’s been on my “to read” pile forever. I think I may wait until after the movie, now, so I can go into it fresh.
The Hobbit. This goes without saying, doesn’t it?
