My 2012 “Movies to see” list

Ok I’m starting the new year with a non-gaming post. I’ve told my wife many times the last few weeks that our Movie budget is going to be horrendous next year. Here’s a few reasons why:

Jan 20 – Underworld: Awakening

I’ve always loved the Underworld series, although it’s gone a bit downhill the last few, they’ve always been entertaining.

Apr 4- Iron Sky

This won’t be playing at any theatre that’s local, but this is a highly anticipated indie film I’ve been keeping an eye on. The team that’s producing is well known for not taking itself too seriously. It should be a blast!

May 4 – The Avengers

Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and (possibly) Hulk and other crazy super heroes of old? Check!

May 18th – Battleship

The more I see it, the more this looks like a Transformers movie, still looks awesome.

May 25th – Men in Black 3

Men in Black. Highly and geekly entertaining. The third in the series looks like a blast.

Jun 1 – Snow White and the Huntsman

Yay finally a truly darkened tale of Snow White. Disney ain’t got nothin’ on what I’ve seen so far.

Jun 8 – Prometheus

Dark Science Fiction and an Alien prequel? YES PLEASE!

Jun 29 – G.I. Joe: Retaliation

I thought the first one was a bit underrated, albeit cheesy. Here’s to hoping for another fun ride.

Jul 3 – The Amazing Spider-Man

This one is a maybe, how many times can a comic book hero be rebooted?

Jul 20 – The Dark Knight Rises

The final of the Dark Knight series. This is a MUST SEE.

Aug 17 – The Expendables 2

This one is also a maybe, I liked the first one for what it was: a brainless show with all my old favorite action heroes. This one looks like a fun ride too.

Nov 16 – The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II

I’ve read the books, and I’ve watched the films, and although Kristen Stewart’s acting drives me freaking nuts in this series (Please please look at their face, not their chin!!! — and yes I know she’s in Snow White and the Huntsman), I’ll deal with it one last time. Hey maybe now that’s she’s a (sparkly) vampire she’ll not be such a weenie.

Dec 14 – The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

This is the BIGGEST MUST SEE movie for me this year. I will gladly wait in line for it. I just pray that it’s not at Sikes’ movie theatre.

That’s it unless something else pops up this year 🙂
