Hmmm... maybe I'll need to turn on my Netflix subscription for the Summer & catch up?
Still out there in the T.C.
- Up: come on, it's Pixar!
- Half-Blood Prince: heard mixed reviews about its plot coherence for those who've not read the book. But, it can't be too bad.
- Drag Me to Hell: Sam & Ivan Raimi - how could I pass it up?
- District 9: illegal aliens in a new light. Blomkamp apparently switched from doing CGI to directing movies for Peter Jackson. I suppose STFU&GBTW could have a mid-stream career change?
- It Might Get Loud: because I'm over 40 and still like the music I listened to 30 years ago.
Coming Soon(er or Later) to a Theater Near Me:
- Capitalism: Michael Moore - not always fantastic, but always funny
- Shutter Island: diCaprio & Scorcese in general are enough attraction to go see it, though the creepy-crawliness of it seems to traipse over the suspense/horror line: once you get somewhere creepy-crawly, are you really, really sure you'll be able to get out?
- The Serious Man: Coen Bros. & Minnesota
- The Answer Man: Jeff Daniels
- The Road: assuming it ever gets released
- Cold Souls: Giamatti's extracted soul goes missing on the Russian black market
- Shanghai: John Cusak. Only reason I need.
- 2012: well, hmmm ... guarantee-see doesn't mean guarantee-quality
- Little Ashes: well, maybe the typical art-house film
- A Couple of Dicks: Kevin Smith - like Cusak, what other reason do I need?
- Avatar: well, if it drew STFU&GBTW out of LA to NZ, it might be okay ... although I'll need to see the previews to see if it falls into the pile w/ Freddie v. Jason or Mars Attacks
- Lovely Bones: Horror's not really my thing, so Peter Jackson isn't an automatic must-see; but it's got Mark Wahlberg & Susan Sarandon
Already gone, but not forgotten - this is why DVDs exist
- Moon: Space 2001 a la 2009
- Primer: due to Steve's recommendation
- Appaloosa: Mortenson & Harris in a re-match sounds good. Add Jeremy Irons, and it's a definite. Harris - god, he's prolific!
- The Lucky Ones: intriguing plot
- Cadillac Records:
- The Betrayal:
- City of Ember: Bill Murray is a serious negative. Even in the previews, he looks like the comic relief. There isn't supposed to be any comic relief. It's a dark story of childhood's ending and questioning the status quo. The book was wonderful.
- Pride & Glory: Edward Norton
- Revolutionary Road: I'm totally cold to the whole Titanic re-match; the plot is what sounds intriguing: the insane self-delusion of the 1950s
- Milk: Sean Penn is consistently great. Jake Gyllenhaal & Heath Ledger aren't the only masculine straight men who can be gay on screen
- Slumdog Millionaire
- Defiance: due to Liev Schreiver, not Daniel Craig
- The Mysteries of Pittsburgh:
- Sin Nombre: just one of those 'hmm interesting' eye catchers
