If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Oh man. I kinda miss that Chucky G Can Suck It! guy.
So, since it's November now, I thought it would be appropriate to bring this thread back. Here are some of the movies I'm looking forward to in 2012:
The Dark Knight Rises
The Amazing Spider-Man
- The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)
- The Avengers (Whedon)
- Brave (Andrews/Chapman)
- Lincoln (Spielberg)
- Prometheus (Scott)
- Skyfall (Mendes)
- Django Unchained (Tarantino)
- Ted (MacFarlane)
- Jack the Giant Killer (Singer)
- Dark Shadows (Burton)
Still not sure about Project X, The Raven, MIB 3, American Reunion, or Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter yet.
Nonetheless, that's quite a healthy number of films for 2012.
Here are some movies I am waiting for in 2012:
The Hobbit Part 1: An Unexpected Journey
Ice Age: Continental Drift
Men in Black III
The Amazing Spider-Man

There are quite a few films there for both film buffs and the average moviegoer looking for a good blockbuster. Plus there are always a few that are in production/yet to be announced that could get late 2012 releases and then there are the inevitable Sundance/Film Festival darlings and foreign films that come out of nowhere and are big hits.
Epic list. Can't wait to see "Only God Forgives"
