10 movies I plan on seeing this year...

I'm not excited about any of these as much I was excited for Inception. But, anyway, here are 10 movies which I will definitely be lining up to see when they come out in cinemas/on DVD this year...


I cannot seem to stay away from psychological thrillers. While this trailer, to me, looks a bit tedious, I have a feeling it could be a serious mindf*ck that is also very beautiful. I love ballet movies. Team that up with a psychological thriller and I think I've got it won. Not to mention I have been waiting to see Natalie Portman in a role like this that should get her the accolades she deserves.


I do love Julianne Moore. And I am also interested to see Mia Wasikowska not being Alice and Josh Hutcherson not being the little smartass in kids movies. This generally looks like a funny comedy, which doesn't rely on complete gross-out jokes to get the laughs. It has a really interesting premise too, and I guess it's no coincidence that this is currently rated 96% on Rotten Tomatoes either.


Okay, so this does look like Mean Girls. But hey, I loved that movie, so I should like this one too. I mean, I am in love with Emma Stone at the moment, and she seems to make anything funny. This movie, to a degree, looks smart and harks back to the days of Juno. If the cast is anything to go by (including the newly retired Amanda Bynes), this movie will be a hit.


I haven't seen the original. But all I know is that this movie looks coooooooool. I'm not going to see it in 3D, because that is just epically dumb. It may be all lighty-lighty, but that doesn't mean I am going to wear those strange glasses.


What's that? Australia makes a good film? Could it be?! I actually really do want to see this movie, as it has been lauded with full quota's of stars left right and centre. Maybe I'll just have to get over the little feud I have with Australian films in my head...


While this trailer isn't particularly funny, I somehow know the movie will be because The Hangover's trailer wasn't particularly funny, and look what happened? This movie has Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis finding themselves in an interesting situation, so of course it is going to be funny.


There are three reasons as to why I want to see this movie: the most obvious, it is about Facebook, which has to be my favourite and least favourite website. It is directed by David Fincher, which is still not registering in my head, because this was the guy who directed Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. But, I think he can do it. And it has Jesse Eisenberg in a serious role, which may mean that this movie could be pretty funny. In a few words: I am really looking forward to this one.


Again, the trailer isn't particularly funny. But what I most look forward to is seeing Emma Roberts doing something different and not playing the annoying teenager who has everything or is trying to be a miracle worker. I mean, you saw Wildchild? This very deserving girl hasn't had her finest hour yet.


Thanks to Jason Bourne, I am now a Matt Damon fan, and The Adjustment Bureau looks particularly interesting to me. Emily Blunt also joins in the sci-fi fun, which I find great because she has to be one of the most underrated actresses ever. What can I say about this? It looks smart and entertaining, so I am in.


Even though this has been getting some bad reviews and Jennifer Aniston in it, I really want to see it. Mainly coz of Jason Bateman. And it looks a little funny. I could find myself seriously enjoying this movie.

What do you think of this list? What's some movies you are looking forward to seeing?

This will be my last blog post for a while (maybe), so don't think I have deserted you, I'm just taking a break!
