Watchmen opened this weekend. It's apparently a fanboy's dream. I never read the graphic novel (was too busy with baseball cards to get into comics), but I am looking forward to seeing it on the IMAX screen tomorrow morning. For some, Watchmen was was far and away the most anticipated movie of the year... but not for everyone.
Here's a few others I'm excited to see (in order of release):More in this Poker Blog! -->
March 20: I Love You Man
I think Paul Rudd is hilarious.
May 1st: X-Men Origins: Wolverine
I may not have been a "big" comic fan, but I've read my fair share, and the X-Men comics were some of my favorites. I also think Hugh Jackman captured the comic spirit of Wolverine about as well as any actor has captured a comic role.
May 8: Star Trek
This one pretty much goes without saying, doesn't it?
May 21: Terminator Salvation
Christian Bale has grown into, perhaps, my favorite actor. It has a lot to do with his role as Batman, but also roles in movies like 3:10 to Yuma.
June 5: Year One
Harold Ramis and Judd Apatow get together to make a movie starring Jack Black? Sign me up!
June 24: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Once again, does this one really need much explanation?
August 7: G.I. Joe
Like Transformer, I grew up with the G.I. Joe cartoon. Although I've heard the liberal wimps have stripped the movie of gold ol' American flag-waving, I'm still excited to see how this turns out.
I'm sure there are some more out there that I'm missing, but this list is a good start of what I'll be watching these next few months. What about you?<-- Hide More
