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.
