    What I'm looking forward to:

    Jiro Dreams of Sushi (I saw a vid of this guy on some food network show, he rocks)
    The Great Gatsby (but I really don't like the director)
    This Is 40 (Knocked Up spin-off? yes)
    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (more LoTR is always good)
    Premium Rush (bikes)
    Take This Waltz (seth rogen being serious)
    The Amazing Spider-man (probably will be wut, but still gona see it)
    The Dark Knight Rises (of course)
    Brave (a movie gingers can be proud of)
    Jack The Giant Killer (Jack kills that fckin beanstalk)
    Prometheus (body; not ready)
    Snow White and the Huntsman (this one had a pretty cool trailer. wtf was tarsem singh thinking when he cast Julia Robert and the guy from The Birdcage - even though that movie was awesome)
    Red Tails (Why didn't they call it black tails?)
    Man on a Ledge (Interesting popcorn flick)
    Silent House (Elizabeth Olson was really great in Marcy May Marlene - or something, weird movie name; but yea, this is her second movie ever. She's going to be big)
    The Hunger Games (Whatsherface from that one movie)
    John Carter (Cool rendition of that Arcade Fire song)
    Casa de Mi Padre (Will Ferrell speaking spanish, the entire movie)
    The Hunter (William Dafoe looking very jet-lagged surrounded by a bunch of trees and grass and shit)
    The Avengers (a bunch of mediocre superhero movies - except for Iron Man - packed into one explosive diarrhea finale)
    Dark Shadows (another Tim Burton + Johnny Depp quirky, weirdfest? why not)
    Men in Black 3 (the it's-been-awhile-factor)

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    nothing surprising in that list (well except frankenweenie remake), but it did remind me I need to start on reading the hunger games before the movie comes out.
