Now I've shown you mine... What are yours? What upcoming movies of 2010 are you most jonesing for, ladies and gents?


Simon said...

I've already done my list, yo. You saw it. How dare you ask me to repeat myself!


Robert said...

I'm anticipating most of these on baited breath! Especially "Kids Are All Right", "Inception" and "Black Swan". I need to make my list!

The Taxi Driver said...

I've read The King's Speech. Great script. Everyone is looking so forward to Inception that it would be funny if it really just sucked. I don't think it will. I'm not a Nolan worshipper or anything but I guess at this point he's finally at a point where I will anticipate one of his films. Sweet that James L. Brooks has a new one although his last two left me feeling like there was more to be done. Hopefully he turns it around with this one.

Castor said...

Nice list. You made me aware of a few movies I did not know were coming out this year! Not sure about How Do You Know? as I'm afraid it will be the usual Reese fare :(

Jude said...

We only differ by a few! Where's Rabbit Hole on your list? For shame!

(And I'm not the world's biggest Toy Story/Harry Potter fan, so...)

Luke said...

Simon: Ha. Yeah, I'm a little slow on the uptake, but I tend to ignore the first few months of crap anyway.

Robert: Do it! Bening 2010!

Mike: I have some of those same thoughts - those being that Inception may be complete and utter crap once it finally comes out. It really could go either way I think. And I certainly hope by "last two" James L. Brooks movies, you're not lumping in As Good As it Gets, because that would be blasphemy!

Castor: Reese isn't always awful is she? Sure, she's had some clunkers lately, but what of her better flicks? I hope this Brooks comedy will convert you! :)

Jude: Well, I've been told that the script for Rabbit Hole isn't all it's cracked up to be, but I a big fan of the stars, so let's just place it at 11th, okay? :)

Oh my GOD I cannot wait for The King's Speech! Ugh. How You Know and Toy Story 3 are the only ones not in my top 40 anticipated, the former because I didn't know it was coming out this year and the latter because...well...I'm not really interested, and I don't know why?
