Wrath of the Titans, The Avengers, Men in Black III, Prometheus, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Dark Knight Rises, Total Recall



I will definitely see in theaters, Wrath of the Titans, John Carter, The Avengers & Ted.

I will most likely see in theaters, Men in Black III, Dark Knight Rises, G.I. Joe Retaliation, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted & Battleship

I'll most likely wait for DVD but maybe see in theaters, Prometheus, Total Recall, Dark Shadows, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Magic Mike, Ice Age: Continental Drift & ParaNorman.

Definitely DVD, Mirror Mirror, Brave, The Expendables 2, 7500 &

after I see everything else maybe I'll rent Snow White & the Huntsman.
I was pleasantly surprised by Red Riding Hood and that's what SN&H reminds me of but the thought of watching Kristen Stewart stare blankly into the screen for however many minutes doesn't grab my immediate interest.

And even further down the line maybe Cabin in the Woods

After seeing the trailer for Snow White & the Huntsman I have to say it looks very interesting. I will try to go out and see that one.

Also, my girlfriend is a huge Depp fan so we will probably be seeing Dark Shadows now.

Men In Black III seems like it's 7 or 8 years too late. Maybe would've cared in '04 or '05. Was never that big of a fan fan of the franchise to begin with.

Not too sure about The Amazing Spider-Man. As a huge fan of the comics back in the day, I mean, Gwen Stacy is supposed to be drop dead gorgeous. Sorry to Emma Stone fans, but she's just not in that ball park in my opinion. Even worse miscast than Kirsten Dunst was for Mary Jane in the original movies. But I guess I'll give it a whirl. Wasn't a big fan of the original 3 movies despite their popularity. I wanna kick Tobey Maguire in the teeth, he just sucked as Peter Parker. Sucked. I'll give it a chance with this new guy I guess, he seems to fit the park better...

The Dark Knight Rises is what I'm mostly excited about. I was always more or a Marvel fan than DC fan when it came to the comics, but I have yet to be let down by Nolan, or Christian Bale in general, and this movie should be no exception. Only thing I'm worried about is The Dark Knight improved on Begins. Ledger just f***in' killed it. This next one is supposed to be the curtain call, so I'm expecting this movie to be good, but will it be a good sequel, or will it pale in comparison? Guess we'll find out in July.

Not interested in ASM, mainly because I don't think Marvel have a clue on how to present Spidey to an audience these days and it looks like it'll be generally humorless (worse, the Raimi movies were OVERLY humorous, the best Spidey stories are a little mix of light fun and heavy-handed seriousness). MIB III is a generic time travel story we've seen a gjillion times already. I've watched the MIB animated series, I've seen better plots handled there, hell there were plots better than MIB II (though I still enjoyed that)

From the list, The Dark Knight Rises will be a good ending to that trilogy. I thought the second was a bit over-hyped (really good, but still - not the "greatest movie ever" like everyone says), but I look forward to seeing it. I probably will pass on the theater viewing of it, unless I am dragged there by someone else. I was skeptical about a Spider Man reboot, but I love Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield and it looks pretty sweet, but again, probably won't see it unless dragged there. haha.

As for the others, still bitter Avengers took HP's spot at #3 on the all-time list. Haven't seen it yet, but then again, I haven't seen Iron Man (1 or 2), Thor, or Captain America yet (I did see HULK back in the day, if that counts, haha). Won't watch Avengers until I do.

Probably will check out Snow White and MIBIII once they come out on DVD.


Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter looks ridiculous. I won't see it, but I hope it does well. haha.
