Cowboys & Aliens
By now, you've probably seen trailers for this so it's not new. I think this is such an interesting concept and it's blending two of my favorite genres, sci-fi and westerns!
Plus, I think Harrison Ford needs to foray back into sci-fi. It made him a household name!
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
The next in the Sherlock adventures with Robert Downey Jr. I think these are fun movies. Yes, I know that that they don't follow Doyle's creation exactly, but he's got a lot of the elements right.
Contagion first intrigued me because of the cast list: Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law and Gwyneth Paltrow. What an all star (and expensive) cast! It involves an airborne virus and how rapidly it spreads. The story line sounds a bit like a rehashed version of Outbreak with Dustin Hoffman and Rene Russo. But after watching the trailer it looks so much better.
Warning, not for the faint of heart (or small kids). It's not scary, but does look intense.
I have a bit of a love for Ryan Gosling. He can just disappear into a role and I forget that I'm watching a movie and feel like I'm watching real life unfold. Give the man an Oscar! Drive is about a stunt car driver who moonlights as the getaway driver for criminals. Ooooh!
This isn't really a trailer, more of a small clip from the movie. I can feel the intensity!
I'm not normally one for mushy romantics. I tend to laugh at them. I like classic romance movies: Pride and Prejudice, Gone with the Wind, etc. But I love Rachel McAdams and she is the only reason I kept watching the snooze-fest of The Time Traveler's Wife. I really like the trailer for this movie though. I can look past Channing Tatum. He's still hard for me to take seriously, but it could change with this movie.
Attack the Block
Ahhh, the Brits and their movies. I love them. The wit, the humor, the stories, the accents. :) Even if it's a movie about street kids fighting aliens, I'm all over it.
This movie has already been released but it was such a small release that most don't know about it. I'm still trying to find it in a local theater. I may have to wait til DVD.
Adventures of Tintin
Who didn't love this show when they were a kid? So interested to see it in a movie and I'm really excited that Simon Pegg is doing one of the voices. (Look for him in the upcoming Mission Impossible movie, too!)
Netflix recommendations coming next week. (To watch before they ruin everyone's wallets)
