2009 Movie Line Up - Super Success or Box Office Bummer

Hey fellow movie lovers! As I was randomly browsing Flixster's upcoming movie list, I saw some rather exciting titles in the 09' summer line-up. However, I also came upon some rather astonishing sequels...

In this post I will talk about the "highlights" of next year's flick list.

First on the line-up (that I'm excited about, anyway) is Inkheart.

Inkheart, based on the bestselling book by Cornelia Funke, follows Mo and his daughter Meggie through their novel adventures. And when I say novel, I mean it literally. This father/daughter team possesses a unique ability. One that every book lover dreams of obtaining. They have the power to read characters and objects out of books. When this gift brings a power-seeking villian to the relms of their world, however, things go from bad to worse.

So, while I have read the first two books in the Inkheart series (waiting for the third to go on paperback :D) and am looking forward to seeing this film adaption, I wonder if they will stay true to the storyline? I'm a stickler for accuracy.

Inkheart opens January 23

Next up - Fanboys

In what appears to be the style of Superbad, Fanboys is about a group of teens who drive cross country to sneak into the Skywalker ranch for a sneak peek at the then unreleased "Starwars Episode 1: Phantom Menace".

After seeing the trailer, I'm thinking that this film is going to be a mixed burrito of Superbad, Ocean's 11, and Starwars obsessed fans. While I did laugh at some of the displayed humor in the trailer, I can't help as to ponder the initial script. Will it be witty, or our we going to be sick of Starwars references by the time we leave the theater?

Fanboys opens February 06

Alright all you Anime fans! Your dream has finally come true! Hollywood actually made Dragonball into a live action movie. Why,I ask,couldn't have been Sailor Moon instead? WHY?!

Plot- Goku needs to fight evil evilness trying to take over the world, and the only way to do this is to obtain the Dragonballs that will give them the power to summon the mighty dragon.

I honestly don't think they'll be able to pull this off. Ok, let's do an experiment. Close your eyes and try to imagine an live action actor shouting "Kah-me', Kah-me', HA!" (excuse my horrible DB spelling.) Now, try to refrain from laughing.


Face the corny-ness on April 8.

Next up on the agenda is X-Men Origins - Wolverine (FINALLY

This spin-off of the X-Men triligoy centers around Logan's (AKA Wolverine) mysterious past. How did he become what he is today? How did he meet William Stryker? What's the story behind his hairstyle? Hopefuly all, if not more, of these answers will be revealed Wolverine.

I am EXTREMELY excited about this movie! I am (and always will be) a Marvel movie fan. Except for "The Punisher." That was just bad.

"Beam me to the nearest movie theater, Scottie!" Yep, you heard me right. Star Trek will once again grace us with it's awesome-ness.
Here is the plot as "Yahoo! Movies" spells it out -
"The early days of James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, their first meeting at Starfleet Academy and first outer space mission. "

Straight forward, and to the point.
Of course, if you are a Heroes fan you will instantly recognize this face in the movie poster. It's SYLAR (AKA Zachary Quinto)!

Out May 8

I am excited to say that the Transformers sequel is coming out summer 09'! Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen continues the epic Autobots VS. Decepticons battle.

This is sure to be a great follow up to a surperb movie.

Opens July 26

"Accio Harry Potter Movie!" It's getting closer and closer! Harry's 6th year at Hogwarts proves to be a distressing one. Hopefully New Moon won't bump Harry's release date back.

Out July 17

A lot of sequels are coming out next year, some of which are:

  • Night at the Museum 2
  • Terminator Salvation (WOOT!)
  • Superman: Man of Steel
  • Camp Rock 2 (I object.)
  • Toy Story 3, whose plot (according to Flixster) consists of Buzz being recalled to Taiwan and the rest of the toys going to rescue him. No joke. The people over at Pixar have a sense of humor.
  • High School Musical 4 (NO! BAD DISNEY! Plus, didn't they just graduate? Wouldn't it be College Musical? Or how about I Sang All Through High School and Didn't Pay Attention To Anything, So Now I'm a High School Drop Out Musical?
  • Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (Why? Just tell me why?)
  • Spider-Man 4 (Don't screw it up with random dancing scenes.)
  • Little Fockers
  • Sin City 2

Alright, that's all I have the breath for! Thanks for reading!

Hardwicke not returning for Twilight sequel.

Summit Entertainment officially announced on Sunday that director Catherine Hardwicke will not return for New Moon, the next installment in the acclaimed Twilight series. Due to New Moon's hurried release date of late 2009/ early 2010, Hardwicke will be unable to take part due to conflict of schedules.

*Sigh* Mission failed.

I would like to apologize to my one follower for not writing in MONTHS. My bad. :-/

Hmmm, so what's new in my life? Well, I almost have all my Christmas shopping done!! And let me tell you, I'm am a MASTER of bargain shopping.
OH, have you heard about this new Fisher Price product? No? Well, it's going to be the new hit item this season! This talking baby doll (which is creepy enough as it is) not ONLY calls you "Momma", but is shortly proceeded with the phrase "Islam is the light" and "Satin is king." The company replied to this claim by saying the doll only says "Momma" and coos and babbles.
Here is the Fox News report:,2933,435164,00.html

Seriously though, what has this world come to? I mean come on! Dolls, they're pretty eerie. Talking dolls, they just flat out scare me. But talking dolls that promote Islam and the worshiping of Satin, that's just scarier than scary.

Well, I shall leave you in astonished thoughts regarding today's society.
You've been a great audience! Tip your waitress!

Till next time!
