than any other time before. I consider myself and avid movie fan but I just couldn't
really get up for many of the movies.
It's looking like 2012 may be a bit different. My current list of my Top 3 anticipated movies for 2012 are going to mirror many of yours as well. Here goes:
1. Prometheus- Hallelujah. When I first heard the name I was like "groan, not another Mythology film with overdone CGI. Instead I found that we're getting an "Origins" film in the Alien series that will contain no Xenomorphs! Instead we will learn more about the mysterious "Space Jockey" creature from the 1979 Alien film that was fossilized in a chair with a gun/telescope of some sort. We will learn why the Derelict spacecraft crashes on LV 426. We have a whole new story coming up that isn't encumbered with the current and tired timeline. Bravo.
2. The Hobbit- I read this book as a wee young boy and quite honestly I cannot remember near enough of it. I'm going to re-read the story before the movie and then enjoy yet another master class performance by Peter Jackson and crew. Certainly there will be changes that annoy purists but knowing that the story is going to be done well (based on the LotR series) is comforting.
3. The Dark Knight Rises -
Chris Nolan is one of my favorite directors and he still manages to deliver great product even when the budget of his movies rises. He must be adept at managing the influence of the studio and keeping his vision. I expect nothing but great things coming from the final piece of this Trilogy.
If anyone knows of any other great movies coming up please speak now.
