if you’re anything like us here at CORRECT OPINION then you too are totally over the cinematic year that is 2008. so, you’re probably already wondering if there’s any glints of hope in the not-too-distant-but-not-exactly-tomorrow-or-the-next-day future. so, to make it easier, here’s a quick list for you to gander…..
– friday the 13th (remake). so far so good.
– night at the museum 2: escape from the smithsonian. tantalizing.
– g.i. joe. if its anything close to as good as g.i. jane……
– jurassic park 4. this is one franchise which just keeps going from strength to strength.
– terminator salvation: the future begins. ditto. and from the guy who brought us the charlie’s angels movies!
– angels and demons. the sequel to the really interesting, not boring at all the da vinci code.
– the pink panther part deux. the fact that they use the word ‘deux’ instead of ‘two’, to indicate the frenchness of it all, already has me in stitches.
– wolverine. they handled the character development of this character so well in the other movies, this makes perfect sense.
– magneto. ditto. only this time they get to focus on the very very interesting nazi/jew stuff. more politics. less super powers. cool!
– g-force. “The film revolves around a team of trained secret agent guinea pigs that take on a mission for the US government to stop an evil billionaire, who plans to destroy the world with household appliances” – direct quote from IMDB. need i say more?
and then we have 2010…..
– toy story (re-released in 3-D). not a money making ploy to cash in on a future release.
– toy story 2 (re-released in 3-D). not a money making ploy to cash in on a future release.
– toy story 3-D (most likely in 3-D). coincidentally released very soon after the re-release of the first two toy stories, both in 3-D.
– spiderman 4. due to high critical demand following the wave of euphoria felt by all viewers of the previous entry in this franchise.
– shrek goes fourth. do you get it? ‘goes fourth’? this is the reason why these comedic writers are millionaires.
– the chronicles of narnia: the voyage of the dawn treader. catchy title, non?
– harry potter and the deathly hollows. the film of the book to which everyone has either read or knows someone who has read it and therefore knows how it ends.
and last but not least
– the smurfs. directed by the special effects supervisor of the special effects extravaganza, magnolia. fantastic.
