Okay, I confess. I don’t watch the Oscars. I usually flip on the TV the day after and watch Entertainment Tonight for the highlights and the dresses. I can’t sit through 1 hour of awards, and seemingly, 2 hours of commercials. (So if you all want to comment some highlights, I’m game.) Instead, last night I hunkered down and watched Mesrine: Killer Instinct (Part one). Did I mention I’ve seen part two of this movie already last summer when I went to the theatre thinking it was #1 but it was really #2? Yeah, that’s me. I like to watch things in reverse because I’m cool like that. 😦 If you love Vincent Cassel, you must see this 2-part flick about the real life Jacques Mesrine, bank robber/public enemy number one.
Anyway, it’s been a while since we’ve chatted about what movies we’ve seen recently or are looking forward to this spring and summer. With The Social Network and The King’s Speech under my belt I’m ready for some action/adventure. Seriously, give me some explosions, some bullets and car chases.
In March The Adjustment Bureau with Matt Damon and Emily Blunt is out. This one looks mysterious enough (and possibly actiony enough) to catch my interest. Love Damon in most things, and Blunt is one of my new fav actresses after The Young Victoria and The Devil Wears Prada.
Rango, with Johnny Depp voicing the lizard-like critter might be another must-see. But I’m not sure about that wind-up goldfish in the trailer. Hmm…
Red Riding Hood intrigues me. This movie harkens back to the original fairy tales when the princess didn’t always find her prince and nothing ever ended happily ever after. Could be good. Jane Eyre is also out in March, and though I’m not a fan of the book (haven’t read it; sorry), I hate to miss a great costume drama.
I admit it, in May, you’ll find me at Hangover II. I loved the first one. Must see the second. Though, can they really top the first? I doubt it.
In June Ryan Reynolds gives us The Green Lantern. Even if you don’t like comic book plots, can you really pass up seeing Reynolds on the big screen? Surely, the man must have to disrobe at some point to put on his superhero costume. I’ll be watching!
What movies are you looking forward to? Did your picks win at the Oscars? Yay, for Christian Bale! ‘Bout time that amazing actor got the little gold man.
