I know I should have made this list earlier...I meant to...but just never managed to finish. And well now it finally is. Now the list here probably won't include big movies that everyone else seem to be awaiting the release of like....Indiana Jones, Cloverfield, Speed Racer or James Bond. The thing is though I might watch them, I'm actually not particularly interested in them...now what gets on this list are my picks....the ones I want to watch. So here goes.
1. The Orphanage
Plot Summary: "The Orphanage," presented by Oscar-Nominee Guillermo del Toro, centers on a Laura (Belén Rueda from "The Sea Inside") who purchases her beloved childhood orphanage with dreams of restoring and reopening the long abandoned facility as a place for disabled children. Once there, Laura discovers that the new environment awakens her son's imagination, but the ongoing fantasy games he plays with an invisible friend quickly turn into something more disturbing. Upon seeing her family increasingly threatened by the strange occurrences in the house, Laura looks to a group of parapsychologists for help in unraveling the mystery that has taken over the place.
Starring: Belén Rueda, Fernando Cayo, Geraldine Chaplin, Montserrat Carulla, Mabel Rivera, Andrés Gertrúdix
This movie may have opened elsewhere but it seems that it will only open 21 February 2008 in Singapore. I like ghost story scary flicks...one that has strong stories and great characters rather than just the usual scares relying everything on shock value. I loved the Sixth Sense, The Others and The Devil's Backbone...because they're more story and character driven and I hope that the Orphanage will join them as a league of exceptional ghost flicks. The trailer and the fact that it is presented by Guillermo del Toro makes it look promising.
2. 27 Dresses
Starring: Katherine Heigl, James Marsden, Malin Akerman, Ed Burns, Melora Hardin, Judy Greer
Now I'm not a big fan of romantic comedies. But I saw the trailer of this...and it looks like a fun cute movie starring the pretty Katherine Heigl and the hunky James Marsden. And hey this could actually be a good rom-com. I'm up for it.
Plot Summary: "Teeth" tells the story of High school student Dawn (Jess Weixler) works hard at suppressing her budding sexuality by being the local chastity group's most active participant. Her task is made even more difficult by her bad boy stepbrother Brad's (John Hensley) increasingly provocative behavior at home. A stranger to her own body, innocent Dawn discovers she has a toothed vagina when she becomes the object of violence. As she struggles to comprehend her anatomical uniqueness, Dawn experiences both the pitfalls and the power of being a living example of the vagina dentata myth.
Starring: Jess Weixler, John Hensley, Josh Pais, Hale Appleman, Ashley Springer, Vivienne Benesch, Lenny Von Dohlen, Nicole Swahn, Julia Garro, Adam Wagner
Initially when I first heard of it...not really having read anything much... I wasn't too interested in this little flick. I mean what is this vagina dentata myth anyway? (check it up yourself if you're curious)...then the trailer came out ....and it looked pretty ok...and then I read the film actually won something at Sundance...I think it was the Special Jury prize for Jess Weixler's (Dawn) performance...and its actually a horror comedy.Well now I'm pretty curious...this could be actually be good...or not...regardless I want to see it for myself.
Plot Summary: Years after her first experience in Wonderland, Alice (Gellar), now a disturbed young woman mourning the death of her parents, returns to the land of talking animals and the wicked Queen of Hearts. Based on the computer game "American McGee's Alice."
Starring: Sarah Michelle Gellar
Alice in Wonderland has never really been one of my favourite tales...I dunno...Its just weird and creepy... and twisted...But here's a movie about a grown up Alice? I'm always up for a modern retelling and this is actually based on a video game. It should be a very dark tale indeed.For now it has caught my attention...this could work...or not...lets wait for the trailers.
5. Malice in Sunderland
Plot Summary: A modern take on the classic fairytale, Alice in Wonderland, set in the North East of England.
Starring: Mischa Barton
Look another Alice movie...Not much info on this movie yet...other than Mischa Barton is playing the role of Alice. What issit with all this Alice movies?
Plot Summary: A genetic anomaly allows a young man to teleport himself anywhere. He discovers this gift has existed for centuries and finds himself in a war that has been raging for thousands of years between "Jumpers" and those who have sworn to kill them.
Starring: Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson, Rachel Bilson, Jamie Bell, Max Thieriot, Shawn Roberts, AnnaSophia Robb
Ok so I don't like the trailer and the first poster too much (the second looks good though). But the action and teleportation sequences look cool enough...But what I really want to see is that fight/attack? scene between Samuel L Jackson and Hayden Christensen that we got a little peak of in the trailer...That just looks awesome!
7. August Rush
Plot Summary: A charismatic young Irish guitarist (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and a sheltered young cellist (Keri Russell) have a chance encounter one magical night above New York's Washington Square, but are soon torn apart, leaving in their wake an infant, orphaned by circumstance. Years later, performing on the streets of New York and cared for by a mysterious stranger (Robin Williams) who gives him the name August Rush, the child (Freddie Highmore) uses his remarkable musical talent to seek the parents from whom he was separated at birth.
Starring: Freddie Highmore, Keri Russell, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Terrence Howard, Robin Williams
Its been a while since I've seen any music themed/oriented movie (and I don't mean musicals here) And this one seems pretty good. A mix of rock and classical. Freddy Highmore's a good child actor...and there's Keri Russell...pretty as always...we haven't seen her in a while have we...other then the those little roles in the Upside of Anger and Mission Impossible 3...oh wait there's that movie Waitress...that I soo want to see too.
Plot Summary: Victor Mancini (Rockwell) is a medical-school dropout who has devised an ingenious scam to pay elder care for his Alzheimer's-afflicted mother: he pretends to choke on pieces of food while dining in upscale restaurants. He then allows himself to be "saved" by fellow patrons who, feeling responsible for Victor's life, go on to send checks to support him. When he's not pulling this stunt, Victor cruises sexual addiction recovery workshops for action, visits his addled mom, and spends his days working at a colonial theme park.
Starring: Sam Rockwell, Anjelica Huston, Kelly Macdonald, Brad William Henke
Well I've read the book...what more reason would I have to watch this flick?...I almost always watch screen adaptations of the books I've read. Oh and there's the little fact that Fight Club turned out to be like oh...great. There just might be a slight chance...done well...this could be too.
Plot Summary: In Tokyo, a young couple (Jackson and Taylor) on their honeymoon first begin to see ghostly images in their photos.
Starring: Joshua Jackson, Rachael Taylor
One of my favourite scary flicks is getting a remake...of course I want to watch it. With the remake coming out...there's all the more reason for those who haven't, to check out the original Thai movie.
10. The Dark Knight
Plot Summary: Batman raises the stakes in his war on crime. With the help of lieutenant Jim Gordon and district attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the city streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as the Joker.
Starring: Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman
Ok so I'm not a particularly a big fan of Batman...but I can't deny the slew of Joker posters that have been released looked amazing and so I actually want to see this. Is Heath Ledger's Joker any good?
11. The Other Boleyn Girl
Plot Summary: Based on the best selling novel by Philippa Gregory, "The Other Boleyn Girl" is an engrossing and sensual tale of intrigue, romance, and betrayal set against the backdrop of a defining moment in history.

Yes I've been waiting for this movie for quite some time now...and finally it will be released this year. I've said enough on this movie on my other posts...sooo...Let the rivalry begin!
12. April Fools Day

Starring: Taylor Cole, Scout Taylor-Compton, Josh Henderson, Jennifer Siebel, Sabrina Aldridge
I had actually watch the original...and rather like it.Despite the title being so obvious...I still did not see the end coming...I know that's just stupid right? Oh well....so now there's a remake which I just happen to found out about and I want to see it. Should be fun eh?
Plot Summary: Four guys from the Midwest drive across the country to honor the wish of their dying friend: to watch "Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace" at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch before the movie's w...( )orldwide release.

Of course I want to watch this. Not only have I been hearing about this little flick for the longest time...its also about a bunch of kids in 1999 going to see Star Wars Episode 1...I mean I was a kid seeing Episode 1 way back in 1999 too...Aww memories flooding back...I'm hopeful that this will be good.
Plot Summary: The drama follows an 11-year-old girl's struggle to come to terms with her mother's abandonment.

Looks like an interesting story and a bunch of good actors in it...could be good.

Starring: Reece Thompson, Mischa Barton, Bruce Willis, Michael Rappaport, Kathryn Morris, Melonie Diaz, Rumer Willis
I just recently read up the plot summary of this movie and I think it sounds incredibly interesting...the words A homage to "Chinatown" set in a Catholic high school, witty film noir, the most beautiful but devious girl in school, other darkly comedic characters...pretty much got me...this looks like something that I would actually like...I quite like Brick (modern film noir set in a high school)...but that was more serious drama stuff...while this looks like it could be a dark comedy. Cool! Can't wait to see the trailer!
Plot Summary: The story focuses on a man who suffers "Anesthetic Awareness" (An occurrence where during surgery where not enough anesthetic medication for the patient's body weight), and finds himself awake and aware, but paralyzed, during heart surgery. His wife must wrestle with her own demons as a drama unfolds around them.
Starring: Hayden Christensen, Jessica Alba, Lena Olin, Terrence Howard
I heard some pretty disappointing things about this film...like poor acting and so on...but the trailer just got me...I wanna know what happens. All in his head? Did he survive?....
17. The Duchess

Starring: Ralph Fiennes, Keira Knightley, Charlotte Rampling, Dominic Cooper, Hayley Atwell
I know...the trailer was a bore but...I love costume/period flicks...and there's good actors like Keira Knightley and Ralp Fiennes...and pretty costumes to look at.
18. Middle of Nowhere
Plot Summary: An irresponsible mother blows her eldest daughter's college fund on her youngest daughter's modeling campaign.
Starring: Justin Chatwin, Susan Sarandon, Anton Yelchin, Willa Holland,
Not much information on this flick yet...no stills...no posters...no trailers...but I think the cast looks pretty good...there's Susan Sarandon and her real life daughter Eva Amurri who I last saw in Saved...then there's that kid in Fierce People and Alpha Dog, Anton Yelchin...the Dragonball guy too, Justin Chatwin, and Willa Holland who played Marissa's sister in the OC...pretty good ya. And of course the plot looks interesting...Could be another dark comedy? Sure looks like it has the making off...
19. The Eye
Plot Summary: The remake of the Hong Kong film "Jian Gui", a woman who receives an eye transplant that allows her to see into the supernatural world.
Starring: Jessica Alba, Parker Posey, Alessandro Nivola
Yep another remake here...once again I've never seen the original...so I think I'll start with the remake.
Plot Summary: Described as a modern-day fable about a young woman named Penelope who suffers from a "curse" but sets out to end her life-long streak of bad luck and find her true self.
Starring: Christina Ricci, James McAvoy, Catherine O'Hara, Reese Witherspoon
This movie looks cute. Its like this magical fantasy storybook kinda comedy drama. Very quirky...very colourful too. Christina Ricci looks really sweet in it. And...it all reminds me a bit like Big Fish.
21. Tale of Two Sisters
Plot Summary: Based on a classic Korean folk tale infused with '70s British horror. The DreamWorks version centers on modern-day teenage sisters Anna and Alex Rydell who return home from a mental hospital only to find their recovery unraveling because of a cruel stepmother, clueless father and a lingering ghost.
Starring: Elizabeth Banks, David Strathairn, Arielle Kebbel, Emily Browning
Now I want to see this. I didn't like the original too much...so I'm really curious that maybe with all the changes they made (I mean they're bound to make some changes) I might actually like it.
Plot Summary: A comedy set in the summer of 1987 and centered around a recent college grad (Eisenberg) who takes a nowhere job at his local amusement park, only to find it's the perfect course to get him prepared for the real world.
Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Ryan Reynolds, Kristen Stewart, Martin Starr, Paige Howard
An amusement park as a setting...hmm...that definitely sounds interesting...potentially filled with a bunch of oddball quirky characters...And its suppose to set in the summer 1987...that sounds fun...we'll get to see 80's fashion...
23. Prom Night
Plot Summary: Donna's senior prom is supposed to be the best night of her life. After surviving a horrible tragedy, she has finally moved on and is enjoying her last year of high school. Surrounded by her best friends, she should be safe from the horrors of her past.

Starring: Brittany Snow, Scott Porter, Jessica Stroup, Dana Davis, Collins Pennie, Kelly Blatz, James Ransone, Brianne Davis, Johnathon Schaech, Idris Elba
The trailer reminds me soo much of 90's teen slasher flicks like....Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer...Should be fun eh?
Plot Summary: "Juno" stars Ellen Page as the title character, a whip-smart teen confronting an unplanned pregnancy by her classmate Bleeker (Cera). With the help of her hot best friend Leah (Thirlby), Juno finds her unborn child a "perfect" set of parents: an affluent suburban couple, Mark and Vanessa (Bateman and Garner), longing to adopt. Luckily, Juno has the total support of her parents (Simmons and Janney) as she faces some tough decisions, flirts with adulthood and ultimately figures out where she belongs.
Starring: Ellen Page, Michael Cera, Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons, Olivia Thirlby, Rainn Wilson, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Garner
I soo wanna watch this...I mean this flick has received like rave reviews...And if you haven't check out the trailer...well you have too...its like...soo funny...with all these smart witty dialogue. Ellen Page, who you might remember from Hard Candy, plays this smart mouth pregnant teenage girl...and you can't believe the stuff that comes out her mouth...full of sarcasm and wit. I think this little flick will be as big or bigger than Little Miss Sunshine...bagging a few nominations and awards here and there. And finally finally it will be shown here. Can't Wait!
Plot Summary: On the wet and wuthering moors of 19th century Yorkshire, the Bronte sisters emerge from the haven of their hidden fantasy worlds, from beneath the wing of their eccentric, domineering father and their beloved brother's drug-addled demise, to become history's most famous authors.
Starring: Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Scott Thomas, Geraldine Chaplin, Rebecca Hall, Joan Plowright
A costume period drama about some of the most famous female writers who happen to be sisters...I know this might spell boring to some...but this is typically the type of flick I actually like.

Another remake among a slew of remakes to be released this year. Now I've never watch the original movie...but I've watched the remake's trailer...and it looks interesting enough...and it does look like quite a thriller.
27. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Plot Summary: "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" is a comedy about two people thrust together for one hilarious, sleepless night of adventure in a world of mix tapes, late-night living, and, live, loud music. Nick (Michael Cera) frequents New York's indie rock scene nursing a broken heart and a vague ability to play the bass. Norah (Kat Dennings) is questioning pretty much all of her assumptions about the world. Though they have nothing in common except for their taste in music, their chance encounter leads to an all-night quest to find a legendary band's secret show and ends up becoming the first date in a romance that could change both their lives.
Starring: Michael Cera, Kat Dennings
I dunno why...but this movie just sounds like it could be really good. And sounds like it would have a wicked soundtrack too.
28. Life Before Her Eyes
Plot Summary: Based on the best-selling novel by Laura Kasischke, IN BLOOM is a dramatic thriller about Diana (Oscar-nominee Uma Thurman), a suburban wife and mother who begins to question her seemingly perfect life--and perhaps her sanity--on the 15th anniversary of a tragic high school shooting that took the life of her best friend. In flashbacks, Diana is a vibrant high schooler (played by Evan Rachel Wood of THIRTEEN and THE UPSIDE OF ANGER) who, with her shy best friend Maureen, plot typical teenage strategies--cutting class, fantasizing about boys--and vow to leave their sleepy suburb at the first opportunity. The older Diana, however, is haunted by the increasingly strained relationship she had with Maureen as day of the school shooting approached. These memories disrupt the idyllic life she's now leading with her professor husband Paul and their young daughter Emma. As older Diana's life begins to unravel and younger Diana gets closer and closer to the fatal day, a deeper mystery slowly unravels.
Starring: Uma Thurman, Evan Rachel Wood, Eva Amurri
The story sounds really interesting...I believe this is one of those serious intense emotional dramas...I love the kind. Again this seem to have a great cast. Evan Rachel Wood has always excel in angst ridden teen roles. And I see that this movies has had good reviews so far on Imdb.com. Aww :( this flick is in limited release...lets hope it comes our way.
29. How to Lose Friends & Alienate People
Plot Summary: Sidney Young is a disillusioned intellectual who both adores and despises the world of celebrity, fame and glamour. His alternative magazine, Post Modern Review, pokes fun at the media obsessed stars and bucks trends, and so when Young is offered a job at the diametrically opposed conservative New York based Sharps magazine its something of a shock! It seems Sharps editor Clayton Harding is amused by Young's disruption of a post-BAFTA party with a pig posing as Babe.

Ahh another film which I have posted a lot on.

And hey the flick has even won best picture at the Golden Globes...I say this could be a major Oscar contender here...Can't wait to see it.

33. Charlie Barlett
Plot Summary: Wealthy teenager Charlie Bartlett is failing miserably at fitting in at a new public high school run by the world-weary Principal Gardner.

Along the way, he decides to take some of his own advice, find romance, and learn to accept who he is, thus wielding a witty dark comedy about the angst-filled years before college.Starring: Anton Yelchin, Robert Downey Jr., Hope Davis, Tyler Hilton, Jake Epstein, Lauren Collins, Dylan Taylor, Mark Rendall, Kat Dennings, Derek McGrath
A movie about some smart ass rich kid dishing out advice to his public school schoolmates...one of those filled with smart ass funny dialogues...just the type of flick I like to watch. And the trailer looks just great! And if you just saw it...there was this scene with Charlie lying on his back with his hands behind his head and wearing shades...that just so remind me of Ferris Buller's Day Off.

Meyer has published two more installments of the series, "New Moon" and "Eclipse," with two more titles coming.
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson
A vampire flick... seems like a more romance drama type of vampire flick too...we haven't seen the type...a good one at that for a while...Let me see...a really great one was in 1994...none other than Interview for the Vampire for me. Now this movie could be a little more teen oriented...But I think they have got a pretty good cast and Kirsten Stewart has never really been in one of those cheesy teen flicks so I think that's a good sign...so I am looking forward to this.
36. All the Boys Love Mandy Lane
Plot Summary: A group of high schoolers invite Mandy Lane (Amber Heard), a good girl who became quite hot over the summer, to a weekend party on a secluded ranch. While the festivities rage on, the number of revelers begins to drop quite mysteriously.
Starring: Amber Heard, Anson Mount, Michael Welch, Aaron Himelstein, Edwin Hodge
The trailer has been available on net for quite some time already...and yet this little flick will only get a release this year. I'm a bit confused by the plot and the trailer though...I mean is the story supposed to be about Mandy the seemingly good girl who's actually bad?...or is this a flick about a creepy fellow out to get Mandy?
37. Darjeeling Limited
Plot Summary: Three American brothers who have not spoken to each other in a year set off on a train voyage across India with a plan to find themselves and bond with each other -- to become brothers again like they used to be.

At this moment, a new, unplanned journey suddenly begins.
Starring: Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, Anjelica Huston
Wes Anderson's movie has always been those quirky eccentric type of movie where you either get it and totally loved it...or not get it and hated it...I did not get Rushmore...though I wouldn't say I hated it...but I got Royal Tenenbaums and loved it. And Darjeeling Limited after reading a little plot summary...I immediately wrote it off as one of his movie that I would not get (I know that's horrible isn't it), would not find any humour, suffice to say not enjoy it at all. Then I saw a trailer of it on Tv...I've changed my mind...it actually looks really funny...I think I might get this one. Hopefully its another Royal Tenebaums for me.
38. The Bell Jar
Plot Summary: A screen dramatization of Silvia Plath's book "The Bell Jar".
Starring: Julia Stiles
Did you know that the first screen adaptation was released in 1979...yep...I've never seen it but its supposedly not very good. And they're actually making a new one..Can you believe it! And Julia Stiles will be playing Esther Greenwood. The Bell Jar is one of my favourite books...I know its a pretty hard book to adapt and there will be numerous critics...even now...I mean I for one don't think Julia Stiles is a horrible choice for Esther...she acts ok...I think she even has the right look...not too overly pretty...So anyway I would love to see a screen adaptation of it...even if it was terrible.
39. Paranoid Park
Plot Summary: A teenage skateboarder's life begins to fray after he is involved in the accidental death of a security guard.
Starring: Gabe Nevins, Daniel Liu, Taylor Momsen, Jake Miller, Lauren McKinney
I've seen the poster around and even heard the title pop up around here and there but it somehow never appealed enough for me to check it out any further...until about 2 days ago...when I finally saw the trailer...it got me...now I wanna watch this...I soo hope this flick gets a release here since its been pretty much getting a limited release everywhere else...

Of course most of them have yet to released...duhhh...but click on the above links, do a search and check out their trailers yourself, some of them are already available. So Happy Viewing.
