What are you looking forward to in 2013?
Here is my list!
Django Unchained (Jan 24)
It’s Tarantino … Do I need to say more?
The Silver Linings Playbook (Jan 24)
Already up for a slew of awards including best picture, this looks both funny and meaningful.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (Mar 14)
Like the comedy stylings of Steve Carrell? Well throw in Olivia Wilde, Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi, Alan Arkin and this comedy should be a hoot!
Oblivion (Apr 11)
I know it’s Tom Cruise, but this looks really interesting, and I am a sucker for Sci-Fi (2013 is the year for Sci-Fi)!
Star Trek Into Darkness (May 16)
JJ Abrams has not put a foot wrong in the film department. His first Star Trek was fantastic, no reason to doubt he won’t deliver again!
Man of Steel (Jun 27)
You might be tired of Superhero flicks, but this seems to be a genuine attempt to reinvent Superman in the mould of The Dark Knight. I hope it works!
Kick-Ass 2 (Aug 8)
Kick-Ass is easily one of my favorite movies, and I really hope they capture the same sense of the unbelievable in the sequel.
Elysium (Aug 15)
This is my Dark Horse for film of the year. From the Director of the surprise hit District 9, starring Matt Damon, I am really interested!
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (Nov 21)
One of the more tolerable teen movies was The Hunger Games. Based on a decent set of books and with more than enough to enjoy I have high hopes for the sequel.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues (Dec 19)
If you didn’t enjoy Anchorman then I don’t want to know you … Simple! Can’t wait …
The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (Dec 26)
Loved the first installment, although it was long. If this follows the books there will be many many spiders and a host of merrymaking woodelves!
Don’t like my list? Did I miss something? Tell me!
Now here’s a few possibly good movies, or movies I think people will enjoy!
The Impossible (Jan 24)
It’s already been reviewed well and I’m sure it will find a decent audience. A film about the tidal wave in Thailand, sure to tug on the heart strings.
Zero Dark Thirty (Jan 31)
For the record, The Hurt Locker is an amateurs work! If this is as inaccurate and nonsensical as that (same writer/director) then I see no hope for this. However, it seems to be popular so it makes the list.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (Feb 7)
Sometimes these kinds of movies work, sometimes. I hold no hopes, but maybe …
Lincoln (Feb 7)
Oh does Daniel Day-Lewis want an Oscar does he? I’m sure this will be a classy film, I’m not that excited by it but still.
Anna Karenina (Feb 14)
The source material is much loved, will this do it justice?
The Last Stand (Feb 21)
Arnie returns, and so does the 80’s action film too it appears!
Cloud Atlas (Feb 28)
Yes it’s taken this long for this to come to Australia. About time! Will I like it? Probably not… Will you? Maybe.
Oz The Great and Powerful (Mar 7)
A prequel to the Wizard of Oz … It could work, or it could be another 3D cash-in!
A Good Day To Die Hard (Mar 21)
Die Hard 4.0 was not a Die Hard movie, plain and simple! I hope they have learnt their lesson.
Iron Man 3 (Apr 18)
Loved Iron Man, didn’t care much for the sequel. The trailer for this looks silly, but who knows… Robert Downey Junior is still on a role!
Evil Dead (May 2)
For the Horror fans! This remake looks faithful and shockingly disturbing.
The Hangover Part III (May 23)
People will see this, even though part II was the exact same movie as part I.
The Great Gatsby (May 30)
I hope it’s good. I don’t think it will be.
After Earth (Jun 6)
M. Night. Shyamalan ruined The Last Airbender, and he’s had a steady fall from grace since The Sixth Sense surprised us all. Can he redeem himself with this interesting sci-fi flick starring Will Smith and his son? Maybe … The trailer looks mighty interesting.
World War Z (Jun 20)
Great book! Unfortunately the trailer looks nothing like the book at all… Nothing!
Monsters University (Jun 20)
A sequel to Monsters Inc! Yes please!
The Wolverine (Jul 15)
Do we need more? Apparently. My patience wears thing for X-Men movies. Each movie is either worse, or not good enough to counter the fatigue of another one of these.
300: Rise of An Emipire (Aug 1)
Umm, what? A sequel to 300? How? I am interested, but? Really?
Riddick (Sep 12)
I don’t mind the Riddick movies, this has potential!
Thor: The Dark World (Oct 31)
I really enjoyed Thor! I hope they continue with the Shakespearean vibe!
