Extremely likely that this was the best year to date of young Christian’s life. He enjoyed it more than ever. More than he probably should have. It started quite chaotic, but as we’re reaching its end, in the best possible way. Someone else’s choice, your luck.
So what did happen, you ask and chew your fingernails. Well, a lot. Plenty, too much and then more. I have personally started to have this very eerie feeling of loving New York more and more every day. It’s like a fairy tale. Everything is great. The reason it’s eerie is simply cause I feel like I’m living in this bubble. A fantasy world. It can’t be this good forever. It has to collapse some time, right? It’s always the best before the end. (Knock on wood).
THE BEST MOVIES OF 2010 WERE, WITHOUT ASKING OF OPINION:
- The Town
- The Social Network
- 127 Hours
A pretty expected list. No shockers there, but then again, who the hell thought Ben Affleck was gonna do something even remotely decent again. Rhetorical question. How is that for a shocker.
Inception was just as perplexed and fucked up but still delivered all the way through. And hats off for the most amazing action scene since the first Matrix.
Damn we were hesitant when we heard about this Facebook project. And when I heard hero David Fincher was making it I quietly wept inside. Why would he do this? He only creates great, great movies. Then we saw the trailer (and rushed home to download Scala’s ‘Creep’) and switched to hey wtf this looks fucking great. After seeing it we vowed to never doubt Fincher again.
A guy. Stuck between a rock. And that’s pretty much it. Not just trapped within a confined space, but also actually trapped in the very confined area he’s arm is stuck in. James Franco showed once again why he might actually be what Heath started – the very next great thing. Danny Boyle also redeemed himself after the catastrophe called Slumdog Millionaire. God it angries me more and more the more I think of that movie. The guy is a brilliant director (Trainspotting, A Life Less Ordinary, 28 Days Later and Sunshine only to mention a few). So we’re greatful for this film in many ways. Also side note kudos for creating the most intense scene I think I’ve ever seen. Ever. Heard people were leaving the theater, vomiting, passing out and having heart attacks during it. You’ve been warned.
THE BEST MOVIES WE HAVEN'T SEEN YET:
- The Tree Of Life
- Battle: Los Angeles
- True Grit
- The Adjustment Bureau
- Your Highness
Terrence Malick’s coming masterpiece will be the best movie on the history of time. Everyone else is excused.
Battle: LA simply can’t suck with a trailer like that. (The first one, the one with the weird music and random cuts. Not the adjusted one that felt way to correct). It seems so perfectly epic.
The Coen brothers can't fail. Even their bad movies don't really suck. And since they made me love noth Jeff Bridges and Josh Brolin, we are in no way even doubtful this won't be a success.
Biutiful is just one of those trailers that should make it so, so easy for the film to live up to it. Then again, we all remember the devastation after seeing Slumdog Millionaire.
I’m pretty sure the trailer-music in The Adjustment Bureau is John Murphy's (or is it Clint Mansell?) from Sunshine. Which is epic enough for me to even remotely start liking anything ever.
Your Highness has a cast to die for. And even though it’s loaded with a line-up descended from comedy-heaven (and heaven, yes we’re looking at you Ms. Portman) their biggest win is crazy-underestimated Justin Theroux. Bigass LOL to the studio for editng in a pair of full-on panties on Natali Portman’s ass. Sick.
I still don’t know what happened with Defendor. Did it come out? Did it actually suck so much it just vanished? Or did they simply put it on hold to steer away from the Kick Ass hype? Me don’t know, but it looks brilliant.
Tron. Yes, we've heard so/so.It seems to divide everyone in two camps. Love/hate. Then again. We love that, it gives us hope. No one wants a movie that everyone loves.
THE ONES WE'RE NOT ENTIRELY SURE OF BUT REALLY, REALLY HOPE ARE GREAT:
- Sucker Punch
- Source Code
- Cowboys & Aliens
Zack Snyder has still not let us down, but we’re just concerned since Sucker Punch’s trailer more has the feel of Mortal Combat than the epicness we’re sure it entails. Bonus: This is also the counterpart of 300 – where there used to be thousands of naked over-buff men are now hot mega-hot chicks.
Source Code is like Groundhog Day meets Minority Report so lets just hope it follows though and don’t mess up towards the end (still movies biggest enemy of fucking everything up at the end).
Cowboys & Aliens has already got a huge heads start by its sheer title. Jesus Christ. Someone promote the Title-writer dude. Now.
THE UPCOMING ONES WE LOOK FORWARD TO THE MOST WHENEVER THEY ARRIVE ARE:
- Batman 3 – Rise of the Dark Knight
- Transformers 3 – The Dark Of The Moon (GHA! – if it wasn’t for Tree Of Life, this would probably be the best movie evaaa)
(Yes, it's a tie). All comments superfluous.
