Films I’m Looking Forward For This Year and Films I’m Not

I wanted to crank out some more end of the year list, but since it’s the New Year, I’ll just put them in now.  I did mention some films I’d like to see before, but here’s my complete list, in order from most to least.  Oh yeah, usually the best films we don’t hear until a few months when the film festival like Cannes start.

Lincoln: A Steven Spielberg film with Daniel Day Lewis attached?  That’s a must watch for me.

Twixt: It’s a Francis Ford Coppola film, and he made my favorite movie of all time, The Godfather.  I’m going to see this.

The Dark Knight Rises: The final chapter in Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga is the conclusion of the best superhero franchise ever (unless Arnold Schwarzenegger pops in).  I’m going to have to watch.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey:  The prequel to LOTR has finally come!  You have to be excited for this!

The Bourne Supremacy: Okay, Matt Damon may have left, but I’m still going to see it.

The Hunger Games: Haven’t read the books, but a strong trailer and fan-base could make this the action gem of the year.

Brave: Okay, Cars 2 failed on everyone’s expectations, but Brave looks strong and could remind audiences why they love Pixar.

The Amazing Spider-Man: Was the third film really that bad that they had to entirely reboot the series?  Still, could be potentially good.

Skyfall: I always have to watch the newest James Bond film, no matter what.

Django Unchained: Not a big Quentin Tarintino fan, but I’d be a fool to miss this.

And now films I’m not looking forward to, from bad to really bad.

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 3-D: Clearly the worst of the Star Wars films (Jar Jar Binks gives you that reason), so I have no idea why George Lucas is re-releasing it, and even worse converting it into 3-D.

The Expendables 2: The first one looked like Grumpy Old Men with machine guns.  This one looks like Grumpier Old Men with machine guns.

Battleship: Hollywood is trying to find a new cash-cow, so their best idea is a movie best off a board game.  Does that sound like a bright idea?

G. I. Joe: Retaliation:  Hasbro realized they could sell other toys as movie ideas.  This franchise isn’t quite as bad as Transformers, but still looks awful.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2:  You didn’t think I’d forget about you, now, would I?

And the worst is…

Any Adam Sandler movie that comes out this year.  I don’t know what films he’s making this year, but I have a 100% guarantee they will all be terrible.
