OK, one of the most over-hyped movie in years has been released and gone, The Dark Knight Returns and the summer is nearly over with its fair share of blockbuster fare
Now as we approach the latter part of the year, its that time for those films that go for critical acclaim and awards
I'm looking forward to (if they aren't gonna be pushed further):
- Lincoln, Spielberg's bio-pic of the former US President to be played by Daniel Day-Lewis, one of my favorite actors. Heavily anticipating that.
- Cloud Atlas, the Wachowski Bros. sci-fi epic. Looks tantalizing with the trailer. Hope it delivers. And cool to see Halle on the big screen again
- Killing Them Softly, violent gangster flick featuring Brad Pitt in the title role. James Gandolfini as well. Did well with critics at the Cannes Film Festival
- Flowers Of War, Zhang Yimou's epic drama with Cristian Bale in the lead role amongst Orientals. Lush cinematography expected
- Savages, Oliver Stone's new shit. Dunno if it has been released in the States. Dude has fallen off somewhat but I'll check it out
- Sparkle, the late Whitney Houston's last appearance on screen. Should be emotional
- Lawless, starring Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Mia Wasikowska ... nuff said
- The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson's (a Top 5 Director in my opinion) new shit which as the trailers presume is about the origins of Scientology with Philip Seymour Hoffman in the lead role.
- End Of Watch, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena as LA cops being chased by the mob
- Looper, sci-fi with Bruce Willis and Gordon-Levitt
- Trouble With The Curve, starring Clint Eastwood (this time not directing) and Justin TImberlake
- Argo, new Ben Affleck film as director. He's become a better filmmaker than an actor these days
- Flight, new Denzel as a pilot of an ill-fated plane. Looks like another Oscar nod for Dez
- 47 Ronin, new Keanu Reeves martial arts epic
- Gravity, sci-fi drama from Mexican's finest, Alfonso Cuaron with Robert Downey. Jr
- Jack Reacher, thriller starring Tom Cruise and ...
- Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino's slave revenge flick, which I'll definitely watch on opening night blazed the fuck up.
Feel free to add any ones you're anticipating
