List of movies I'm looking forward to see this year, and one's I'm not sure about.


Like to see:

*Frankenweenie- A stop-motion movie based on Tim Burton's 1980's live-action short film. Since they stretched the 30 minute short-film into a 90 minute one, that'll give us to see more of the friendship between Victor and Sparky (before Sparky died, and after he was revived)


*ParaNorman- Another stop-motion film brought to live by Henry Selick, the man who knows how to terrify and entertain us at the same time no matter what age. Just like what he did in "Nightmare Before Christmas," "James and the Giant Peach," and his previous block-buster, "Coraline."

*Rise of the Guardians- A film made by Dreamworks about all of the figures of our innocents (Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, and the Sandman). You think it sounds cheesey, but once you see the trailer of it, it's actually interesting.
At least the "Guardians" aren't over-the-top and ridiculous as they were portrayed in "Fairly Odd Parents" or in "The Santa Clause" sequels.
And it is yet another film made from Dreamworks that has beautiful animation and  NO pop-culture references (so that'll be a big relief for those who are skeptical about "Madagascar 3" ).
Plus it actually is based on the truth about life, because the main villain known as "The Nightmare," based on the cold and harsh facts of reality and dying imagination when we find out that those figures of our childhoods aren't real.


*The Avengers- Nuff said



Not so sure of:

* Pixar's Brave- Despite how great the first trailer was, I'm having mixed feelings about it seeing all of the competition the movie has. And I couldn't get over how the TV trailer made it look stupid (an old lady mooning a knight? That is nothing to look forward to in a Pixar film -_-).


*Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted- Since we all seen the failure of "Shrek the Third," lot of people are worried about this one because Dreamworks sequels are "only good" when only sequel is made.
Still it was really funny to see Marty's "Afro-Polka Dot Circus" clip, and would be a BIG relief to see King Julian and Mort act like their original-selves and not how they were portrayed in the TV series (Julian is a selfish jerk and Mort is a creepy foot-fetish tag-a-long).




As for the list of films I'm not looking forward to, that would be next.

I'm actually looking forward to Brave, it looks pretty awesome...
That sounds pretty funny actually. Pixar has never been known to be uptight, why should it start now?

ParaNorman is being made by Focus features, the same studio that made Coraline, but not Henry Selick. I will hand it to you though, thanks for knowing who that is. =)

About "Brave", that was an old man mooning other scottsmen. Not a lady mooning knights.

I look forward to Brave, but I don't want to jump to conclusions of what I think about the movie yet if I were you. Trust me, I was skeptical about Hop and didn't want to see it, but in the end I ended up liking it. I'm also looking forward to Frankenweenie (being a Tim Burton fan myself), and Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter (that and Brave come out on my 18th birthday). I haven't heard about Rise of the Guardians nor have I seen a trailer for it, however from what you say it kind of reminds me of a story called, "The Legend of Holly Claus" that I once read.

My problem with Brave isn't actually the reason you stated, but more because the plot device it uses has been used several times already. "The not-so-feminine princess whose mother wants her to be a lady, but she wants to be a knight instead", I mean, that is the problem with us women when directing or writing a script for a film, we're so stuck up in the fact that we want "strong female characters" that we forget that this has been used a thousand times.

I mean, I dunno, perhaps when I see I might change my mind, after all, Pixar doesn't disappoint (except for Cars, that was disappointment everywhere), but for now, i still have a problem with that. I don't see why we have to keep going on with these strong female thing and create strong characters instead.

It's kind of funny with Brave: One of the guys I work with who doesn't even care for animation is looking forward to that one.

Nice list.:) I'm looking forward to a few of those movies myself. Of note I'd like to see ParaNorman, The Avengers, and Wreck-It Ralph. BTW, perhaps you might be interested in a few of the movies listed here by one Bob Chipman.

I agree with :icontellywebtoons:.

I think, the Top Cat movie looks quite good. I'll hope I'm going to see Brave, Madagascar 3 and Top Cat.

here in the uk, we get to see Top Cat in August! :la:
If you're unfamilar, its the mexican 2D animation film that came out in 2011, and made a huge Box-Office success.

there's rumor to be a UK Cast list, which i doubt however. i mean David Tennant as Top Cat?
