While I wanna see War of the Worlds and Fantastic Four, I am really, really, really hoping for the resurrection of the Batman franchise with some good movies.
I voted for Fantastic Four, but I really want to see most of the films on the list. I saw Cinderella Man the other day and it was magnificent. It may be early, but this one has Oscar potential big time.
I am riveted to see War of the Worlds.
Well, I'm really looking forward to the new Batman (the cast alone is fantastic), and I can't wait for the you-know-it's-going-to-be-weird Tim Burton/Johnny Depp "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." However, I'm not a Michael Bay fan, but I have to say I voted for The Island simply because of the Ewan-ness.
And if we're talking about movies this year and not just this summer, here's to The Goblet of Fire.
I don't know why but I'm not too sure about Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I really liked the old movie but I'm not sure how good the remake will be. I just don't think of Johnny Depp as a Willy Wonka and I think they even changed how the Oompa Loompa's look.
Sorry if I misspelled anything....
I have been excited about Charlie & The Chocolate Factory since I heard about Tim Burton and Johnny Depp attached to it a year or so ago - I am interested to see what differences there are and that it seems to be very different. I have heard nothing but raves for Batman and really am excited about it. I do not know about War of the Worlds - I was not too impressed with Minority Report. I think Wedding Crashers and Bewitched seem to hold a lot of promise. As for current movies I definitely recommend Mr. & Mrs. Smith - very funny and I am not even married!
Here's a trivia question - one of the Oompa Loompas from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was in Star Wars. Who was he?
The last 2 batman movies sucked. The first one was a great film. Not just batman but a good movie itself.
The answer to my trivia question :
Rusty Goffe played Kabe, a Jawa, and GONK the droid in Star Wars as well as Oompa Loompa in Willy Wonka.
