Let the wild rumpus start!

Thursday, April 23, 2009
Yes, it's time for another round of "movies I'm dying to see!" So far, I'm 1 for 5 on my previous lists, but to be fair, three of the movies that I mentioned have yet to be released. State of Play proved to be very satisfying: full of intrigue, obligatory twists and turns, and relevant subject matter (the death of the newspaper, private military contractors, etc.) The jury is out on this next bunch, but spring/summer movies are looking up!

500 Days of Summer. I heart Zooey Deschanel. And I'm proud of Joseph Gordon-Levitt for branching out.

Away We Go. Yet another example of a movie that I'm involuntarily sucked into because of the gratuitous use of soulful and inspiring music. Even without the song, however, I would be interested in John Krasinski's ventures into independent film. After watching this preview five times, I still find myself smiling at the stroller scene.

Where the Wild Things Are. When I heard a movie was being made about this quintessential classic, I just felt...not sure. It's such a tiny little treasure of a book, how can someone imagine it into something greater? After watching the trailer, however, I think I might have changed my mind. I'm impressed, Spike Jonze.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. DYING to see this! I have made a plan to reread the entire series, and by my watch, I should probably get started! Even though I'm a rather rapid reader, I don't have much time left! Dear Dumbledore! Katie Bell suspended! Evil Draco Malfoy! And Snape...oh, Snape.
