My Most Anticipated Films of 2010
What can I say? I really love movies and t.v, almost makes me wish I were better at writing previews and reviews. I’d do my own movie/t.v news site.
At least about two or three times a year, I like to go on movie news sites and check-out upcoming flicks for that year and beyond. Read as much info as I can about the ones that interest me the most.
Like who’s going to be in it, what it’s about, etc. Not to mention, I love watching trailers, sometimes I enjoy a trailer more than the movie itself. I love going to the theaters, that’s one of my favorite past times. What about you?
This year, like years past will feature all types of movies, remakes, musicals, sequels, blockbusters, dramas, comedies, epic, CGI-animations, 3-Dimentianal flicks, t.v and book adaptations and more. Here is a list of some of my most anticipated flicks of 2010, some trailers included:
My #1 Most Anticipated
M. Night Shyamalan The Last Airbender
Directed by M. Night Shyamalan; personally I don’t hate his work, I haven’t seen all of his films but it seems to me that his writing and films are very unique but not always so well received by the majority.
I am a little nervous about The Last Airbender movie adaptation falling into his hands. I not sure if he is the right man to capture the essence of the animated series. Yes, it would make an amazing action flick, I always thought so, but I hope the humor and relationships between these characters are not sacrificed to make it an action movie like any other.
Avatar the series was so much more. I loved Aang’s childlike spirit; Sokka’s sense of humor; Katara’s brave heart; Suki’s resilience; Aang’s Appa/ Momo companionship; the bond between Prince Zuko and Uncle Iroh; Uncle Iroh’s philosophical nature; the flashbacks of Prince Zuko’s past that indicated he was not as evil as he was perceived to be, but just an angry kid who seek his father’s love and acceptance; and the sense that he would help Aang make things right when the time came. Those things and more made this series carve a permanent spot in my list of all-time t.v favorites.
I’m not too sure how I feel about some of the casting in this film, but I think Noah Ringer looks like a perfect Aang, I love the idea of Dev Patel as Prince Zukko and Nicola Petlz is a very beautiful Katara. Jackson Rathbone looks like Sokka, but does he have his funny bone, we’ll see. I hear that this is the first installment of a trilogy. I hope all participants involve in bringing this film to life, give it all it they got and I hope it is well received. M. Night Shyamalan, you better not screw this up!
Musicals I am looking forward to seeing:
2009 released the remake of the musical “Fame” with young, hot, talented uprising stars such as Naturi Naughton, Kay Panabaker, Kherington Payne, Anna Maria Perez De Tagle and more. This year I am really looking forward to the “Footloose” remake with Chase Crawford and Julianne Hough. As well as “Step-Up 3-D” and “Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming.”
So they are not really any movies other The Last Airbender and Footlloose that I am overly excited about seeing but here are a few trailers of movies I like to see; big hits or not.
Okay, I was wrong. I am also really psych about Vanessa Hudgens’ upcoming flick “Beastly.” I am really glad to see America Ferrera starring with Lance Gross in this grown-up role in “Our Family Wedding.”
