Movies I Want To See In 2010

The Lovely Bones (January 15)

Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland (in 3D) (March 5)
Should be a trip. Plus, my boy Matt McGovern worked on the 3D for this. Holla!

Date Night (April 9)

Iron Man 2 (May 7)

Robin Hood (May 14)

Get Him To The Greek (June 4)
This is a spinoff from "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." According to IMDB, the plot is: A record company intern (Jonah Hill) is hired to accompany out-of-control British rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) to a concert at L.A.'s Greek Theater. Jason Segel wrote it, so you know it's going to be funny.

Toy Story 3
(June 18)

The Other Guys
(August 6)
It's a cop flick starring Will Farrell, written by Adam McKay, who wrote Anchorman and Step Brothers. Uh....yes, please!

How To Make Love To A Woman (TBA)
This is my buddy Scott Culver's first feature film. Don't worry, it's not a porn. Apparently it's released in Japan now and the kinks are still being worked out over here. I may have to fly to Japan.

Black Hole (TBA)
Directed by David Fincher (who did one of my all-time favorites, "Se7en," this movie is based on a graphic novel by Chaarlie Burns and is about: "A group of high school students' lives are altered drastically when they come in contact with a sexually transmitted disease called the 'teen plague' or 'the bug.'"

Probably . . .

Edge Of Darkness (January 29)

Valentine's Day (February 12)

Shutter Island (February 19)

Cop Out (February 26)

A Nightmare On Elm Street (April 16)

(April 16)

Grown Ups (June 25)

Megamind (November 5)
“When super villain Megamind (Will Ferrell) defeats his archrival Metro Man (Brad Pitt), the world should be his oyster. But instead, Megamind falls into total despair. It turns out that life without a rival is life without a purpose for him. So he creates a new superhero rival, Titan (Jonah Hill). Unfortunately for him and the world, the new hero wants to be a super villain too. The new villain begins his rampage, and Megamind sets out to stop him, beginning a path to redemption in the process.”

The Zookeeper (October 8)
"In "The Zookeeper," the animals at the zoo adore their caretaker Andrew (Kevin James), an amiable but lonely guy who's never quite fit in. Finding himself more comfortable with a lion than a lady, Andrew decides he should leave the zoo and get a life. When the zoo animals discover his plan they decide to break their code of silence and reveal their biggest secret: they can talk! Now they won't shut up and they're teaching Andrew nature's best mating rituals. To help him win the girl of his dreams (Rosario Dawson) and save their happy family they're willing to do - or say - anything."

Black Swan (TBA)
Actually, the description of this movie sounds awful: "A thriller that hones in on the relationship between a veteran ballet dancer and a rival." But, the ballet dancers just happen to be Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman.

Inception (July 16)

Skeptical, But Possible . . .

The A-Team (June 11)

The Three Stooges
It's made by the Farrelly brothers (Dumb & Dumber, Something About Mary, etc.), so it's probably funny. But the Three Stooges are Sean Penn (Larry), Jim Carrey (Curly) and Benicio Del Toro (Moe). I'm not worried about Carrey, but the other two are kind of head scratchers.

MacGruber (April 23)
This bit is only mildly funny in one-minute bursts on SNL. Not sure it'll work over 90 minutes. Actually, I'm pretty sure it won't. But, I saw Hot Rod, so I'm sure I'll end up seeing this too. Prove me wrong, MacGruber. Hurry MacGruber!
