My Own Fall Movie Preview Vol. 1

Dekat Hollywood ada 2 musim filem yang penting. Summer Movies (May-Ogos) selalunya terdiri dari filem-filem blockbuster yang studio kat sana rasa yakin boleh kutip ratusan juta dollar. And then there's Fall Movies (Sept-Dec) yang ada jugak filem-filem blockbuster tapi at the same time studio akan release filem-filem yang ada harapan untuk dapat pencalonan Oscar. List aku ni terdiri dari filem-filem yang AKU teringin sangat nak tengok dan tak semestinya dari Hollywood semata-mata. Aku compilekan daripada majalah-majalah dan artikel-artikel yang aku baca dari Internet. So here it goes. Movies that I would like to see this year in no particular order, and the reason I wanted to see it:

  1. Four Brothers - Mark Wahlberg, Tyrese and Andre 3000 as brothers? I definitely want to see that. The fact that Jon Singleton is directing also interest me.

  2. Cinderella Man - It's Russel Crowe. Every review I read is saying that this movie is a serious Oscar contender.

  3. The Myth - Jackie Chan leads a multi-national casts from China, Hong Kong, India and Korea.

  4. Bittersweet Life - A Korean movie that has been compared to Pulp Fiction. I have to see that.

  5. Oliver Twist - Roman Polanski doing a remake of Charles Dickens's classic? Sound very interesting.

  6. Corpse Bride - Tim Burton at his very best doing a stop motion animation masterpiece once again.

  7. Night Watch - The Russian version of The Matrix meets The Lord Of The Rings. It's the first installment of a trilogy based on Sergei Lukyanenko's best selling sci-fi novels which also includes Day Watch and Dusk Watch. Who doesn't love trilogies?

  8. Saw 2 - The sequel to a very creepy movie I saw last year. The film-maker promise that it would be creepier...

  9. History of Violence - Viggo Mortensen stars in a David Cronenberg film. David Cronenberg movies are always 'interesting'..

  10. Elizabethtown - Cameron Crowe directing. Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst stars. Sound good enough to me.

  11. The Legend Of Zorro - Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta Jones is back. This time with a son in tow.

  12. Good Night, And, Good Luck - George Clooney directing a true story about Edward R. Murrow.

  13. Jarhead - I read the story. Now I want to see the movie. Plus Sam Mendes is directing.

  14. Walk the Line - Joaquin Phoenix starring as music legend Johnny Cash. I smell Oscar here..

  15. The White Countess - Only because that this is the final movie collaboration between James Ivory and Ismail Merchant.

  16. The Brothers Grimm - It's Terry Gilliam, the master behind quirky classic such as Brazil, Time Bandits and The Fisher King. It stars Matt Damon and Heath Ledger. It's a story about the writers of fairy tales classic such as Little Red Riding Hood and Hensel and Gretel. 3 big reasons to watch.

  17. The New World - I love Terrence Malick's movies. This movie also revolves around princess Pocahontas. Colin Farrell and Christian Bale stars.

  18. King Kong - I know everbody wants to see this movie.

  19. V for Vendetta - I saw the trailer in the cinema and it looks pretty freakin' awesome. Natalie Portman shaves her head for this movie. The Matrix creator, the Wachowski brothers produced it.

  20. Get Rich Or Die Tryin' - Rapper 50 Cent follows Eminem footsteps and stars in a semi autobiographical movie. Hope that it's another '8 Mile'.

  21. The Fountain - Darren Aronofsky is a film making genius. Go and see his other movies (Pi and Requiem For A Dream) and you would want to see this. Plus it's a movie about time traveling and stars Hugh Jackman. That's a sure shot for me.

  22. The Chronicles of Narnia - The brighter and more romantic version of The Lord of The Rings also with a New Zealand director. I'm very curious to see how this turns out.

  23. All The Kings Men - Sean Penn, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, James Gandolfini, Mark Rufallo and Anthony Hopkins. Expect powerhouse performances. Probably Oscars.

  24. Brokeback Mountain - Ang Lee is one of my favourite director. He's very prolific. He has tackles many genres of films (romantic comedies, 70's drama, civil war epic, costume drama, martial arts, comic blockbuster) and this time it's a western. About gay cowboys. Hmm.. Curiosity kills the cat.

  25. Match Point - Woody Allen always shoots in Manhattan, New York . This time he shoots in London. And it stars Scarlett Johansson who I think is a very talented and beautiful actress.

  26. Aeon Flux - Charlize Theron. Catsuits... nuff said.

  27. Into The Blue - Jessica Alba. Swimsuits... nuff said.

  28. Memoirs Of A Geisha - I heard so much about this movie and I want to know what the fuss is all about. It stars who's who in asian cinema such as Zhang Ziyi, Michelle Yeoh and Gong Li.

  29. Untitled Steven's Spielberg Project - It's about the Palestinian attack on Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Nobody knows anything about this movie except that it stars Eric Bana.

  30. Sympathy for Lady Vengeance - It's the concluding installment of the Park Chan-Wook's revenge trilogy that includes Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and OldBoy. Revenge movies are always a treat to watch.

So that's my list. How about yours?

Besok aku kursus kat INTAN. Sampai Jumaat. Macam takleh nak online jek..Aduh! :(

    terence malick is THE man...! aku harap underdog menang lagi this next oscar..but i felt, kali ni yg meletup habis dlm oskar: steven spielberg's and ang lee's. dua2 nampak ground breaking, unless, Memoir & King Kongs mmg crowd pleaser habis-habisan, filme lain tak nampak boleh tanding..weirdly, im wating for our own filmmakers, amir's, osman's, kak min's..

  8. Edd Vedder said...

    that's what I'm sayin'.. Aku tak tahu bila filem2 kita tu akan direlease. I know Gubra and Baik Punya Cilok is coming next year sebab tu aku tak masuk dalam list.. Yang lain tu aku tak tahu. I hope somebody provided a list of Malaysia's very own upcoming movies..
