This week’s Ten on Tuesday prompt, “10 Movies You’re Excited About Seeing,” was just made for my husband. Tall Paul is always downloading movie trailers and checking out the latest information on IMDb, so I’m turning the blog over to him for this post. Here are 10 movies that Tall Paul is excited about seeing, either this summer or whenever they make it into theaters. (For the record, I’m with him on #1, #4, and #7, strangely ambivalent about #5 even though I love Pixar, and absolutely do not get the title of #6. I will probably see every one of these movies unless they truly suck, just because I really enjoy going to the movies with my husband.)
(July 2, 2008) Will Smith as a super-powered alcoholic? I’m there!
3. The Dark Knight
(July 18, 2008) I want a Batmobile so bad! I loved Batman Begins
(Batman finally done right!), and The Dark Knight
4. Get Smart (June 20, 2008) I am a life-long fan of the TV show. I have the whole series on DVD. I really want to like the movie…
(June 27, 2008) The previews look (only) good, but it is Pixar, and they haven’t let me down yet.
6. Quantum of Solace
(November 2008?) http://www.007.com
/ Casino Royale
was the best Bond. The producers finally brought us a Bond that was first and foremost a spy, dedicated to country and queen (and M). I was really glad to see the “girlie” opening credits were sent back to 1970 where they belonged.
7. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (November 2008) This is a must-see. Loved the books. So far the movies have been great.
8. Star Trek
(May 2009) I have been, and always will be, a fan.
(2009) Thor was God of Thunder wielded Mjolnir (a hammer only he could lift) was sent to earth (sans memory of being a god) to learn to live a a mortal. After a decade, living as a doctor, he finds Mjolnir and, once again, becomes Thor. Having lived among humans, Thor is torn between life on Earth and Asgard (home of the gods).
10. The First Avenger: Captain America
(2010) Have you guessed yet that I am a comic book fanboy? Captain America was one of my favorite comic book Heroes when I was growing up. Skinny 4F Steve Rogers becomes buff super hero with an indestructible shield and kicks Nazi ass – what’s not to like?. I really hope that the movie is true to Caps’ origin and features him battlin’ Nazis and the Red Skull. Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., was once Sgt. Fury and he and Captain America occasionally fought side-by-side.
So, are there any movies due out this summer, or in the pipeline, that you are eagerly anticipating? Please share them in the comments, and if you played Ten on Tuesday this week, include a link to your post!
