There was a time where I would go to the movies every Thursday with my mates, and we’d see whatever was on. It was great. We started with Indiana Jones 4, and then every Thursday from there. The group still meets, though I no longer go (mainly because Thursday is one of the few nights where I don’t have anything on, and it’s good to spend it with just my wife). However, there are a few movies coming up that I really want to see, so may well attend the movies that week, or just go and see it on my own.
I can’t wait for this. I’m so excited to see the Muppets back together again. I love the Muppet show, and the Muppet movies that they’ve done so far were brilliant. I think there’s something quite nostalgic about heading back to revisit characters that you’ve loved for so long – such as Toy Story 3. So this is the movie that I’m looking forward to the most.
Mission: Impossible 4
I don’t know what it is about the Mission: Impossible movies, but I can’t wait to see this one. I know that overall, they’re not great movies, but the spectacle, the gadgets, the action, it makes it a movie that I’m really looking forward to seeing.
Now this one is still a long way off, but I’m a huge Lord of the Rings fan, and can’t wait to see The Hobbit. There’s been word that director Peter Jackson will tinker with the story a bit, which generally I’m not a fan of (I was most annoyed that Tom Bombadil didn’t make the movies) but I’ll still go and see the Hobbit because it will be epic, awesome, and everything Tolkien.
Winnie the Pooh
I only found out about this when I was looking at what other movies are coming up, but I’ve got to say that I’m rather excited about this. Similar reasons to The Muppets – being reintroduced to old friends. Plus, John Cleese as the Narrator, it’s going to be awesome.
Again, familiar friends make me want to see this movie. Looks like a lot of fun. Plus Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays.
I think I’m seeing a trend here. I loved reading Tintin comics when I was young, and I’m really looking forward to seeing this movie. Produced by Spielberg and directed by Peter Jackson, you know that it’s going to be epic. It’s also got Daniel Craig and Simon Pegg cast, as well as Andy Serkis (Gollum from Lord of the Rings) voicing Captain Haddock and Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot) voicing Tintin.
