Waiting for 2009 to come?

A recent article I came across listed the most anticipated movies of 2009. Most of these movies aren't really the type I would normally watch (or waste my money on), but some are just too cool to miss and I'm sure you'd agree to that. Note that these aren't really arranged in any particular order and ALL of them will be released on 2009.

1. Brave New World: Ravaged Planet - another good vs. evil story (hohum).

2. Coxblocker - an ex-boyfriend continuously tries to block Cox from getting together with the (former) girlfriend.

3. Angels and Demons - I'm hoping that this will be a lot better than The Da Vinci Code.

4. Friday the 13th - another remake??

5. G.I. Joe - this is a big part of my childhood... I wish to preserve that.

6. Halo - another game-to-movie movie??

7. Old School Dos - new students, new adventures.

8. X-Men Origins: Wolverine - he's my favorite, and I liked the X-Men movies so far. I hope they stick close to the real story.

9. Playboy - wanna know how to score with hot women? Learn from Hugh Hefner himself.

10. The Brazilian Job - after Italy, it's "Hello, Brazil!"

11. Conquistador - join Hernan Cortes as he destroys the Aztecs. Wow another historical movie that I'll look forward to!

12. Sin City 2 - loved the first one so (I think) I'll love this too.

13. 1776 - join George Washington as he destroys the British. Yep, another historical movie here.

14. The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus - Johnny Depp (and Jude Law and Collin Farrell - but who cares) is said to replace the late Heath Ledger in this movie. That's enough reason for me to watch it.

15. Inglorious Bastards - a band of soldiers go on a suicide-mission in France.

16. Arrested Development - never watched this so...any fans?

17. Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins - woohoo...more Terminator...

Well there you have it. Any takers??

Jumper made me want to jump...

jumper...out of my seat and get out of the movie house as quickly as possible.

I just felt bad about paying for the movie so I decided to stay put and finish the movie. Why did I feel this way? One thing: Jumper was a shallow movie. The storyline was so simple, it made fairy tales look complicated.

Sure, the graphics were really cool, but most of them happened during the latter part of the movie already. Like with the fight between the two Jumpers - David (Christensen) and Griffin (Bell) - and when the fight was ensuing between them and the Palladin, headed by Roland (Jackson). It was a fast-paced, action movie that seemed to be trying hard to include a sci-fi touch to it. The drama wasn't so good either.

And what the heck's up with the tagline, "
Anywhere. Anything. Instantly."? It sounds like something Visa or Mastercard would use!

No, I'm not bashing the movie. I've nothing against the cast nor the director of Jumper. I'm just stating my opinion on the movie, based on what I saw when I watched it. If you're looking for a
good movie to watch, skip Jumper. If you're into special effects alone, then go ahead and watch it. (Hayden Christensen isn't even good-looking here, so don't watch if you're just after that.)

Pirates of the Caribbean...4?

jack sparrow pirates of the caribbeanApparently, Disney is planning on making more sequels for the Nicholas Cage adventure movie, National Treasure. They reportedly registered the domains and before January ended. Fans can expect to hear some news about new National Treasure movies some time around 2010.

Okay, not only that, Jim Hill of
Jim Hill Media revisits the script of Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's End. He tells of a potential plot for Pirates of the Caribbean 4:

"I hear [it] would toss the Elizabeth & Will characters over the side in favor of doing a bawdy buddy picture which would star Jack Sparrow & Barbossa. Where both captains of the Black Pearl would initially be competing for the exact same prize. But eventually all the double crossing would have to stop as these two rivals were then forced to join forces in order to defeat some supernatural terror..."

Josh Hartnett: Bunraku

josh hartnettJosh Hartnett is set to play the role of Drifter in an indie movie entitled Bunraku.

Bunraku is a type of Japanese puppet show but the movie is
"a live-action telling a classic story of a stranger coming to town in the tradition of spaghetti Westerns, samurai movies and gangster flicks."

Drifter's story is revenge gone bad. He's out looking for retaliation but finds himself involved in a fight bigger than what he prepared for.

Bunraku will be done ala-"Sin City": a mixture of
"puppets, origami, comic books, video games and German expressionism."

I'm not really sure if this movie's worth watching. I mean, I'm a fan of samurai movies and I've had my share of viewing experience, but what the producers claimed the movie will include (see paragraph before this), it makes me think twice about the plot of the movie.

Sure there's been samurai movies - well animation, actually and it's a series - that mixes some major aspects to the story that are clearly
western like this one.

But yeah, Bunraku isn't even in production yet, so we'll see.
