In case some of you don’t remember, last year around this time I decided to share my most anticipated movies of 2012 with you. (Link for the lazy)
Rough, wasn’t it? I mean I picked The Lorax.Ouch. Hopefully this year goes a little better.
Let’s get down to brass tacks, Outcasts.
Monsters University is probably my most anticipated movie of the decade. Being a Pixar junkie, I absolutely can’t wait to see another sequel (Lightning McQueen and Mater aside) that breathes new life into some of the most beloved characters I’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing a theater with. I have a feeling Pixar will be taking the same route it took with Toy Story 4 this time around. The ladies and gents at Pixar are well aware that we’ve grown up with Mike and Sulley, therefore they did their math, most of us went to college. How could they not fiddle with our strong emotions of those 4-5 years we all have in common? Words cannot express how excited I am for this one.
I’d post a trailer here, but instead I’m going to share the Monsters University Recruitment video. These guys are marketing geniuses, aren’t they?
Oh, and if Roz doesn’t show up as some sort of disgruntled R.A I’ll be thoroughly disappointed.
I was going to put another animated film in spot #2, but I should probably spread out my childlike wonder of such flicks.
Not only is Evil Dead one of my most anticipated movies of 2013, it’s also the most scared I’ve been to see a movie in ages. If the fact that this one is relying heavily on makeup and special effects isn’t groovy enough for you, try to remember that the producers have promised no CGI. That’s incredible. Especially after that trailer!
What was that tree doing to her?! Totally kidding, we all know what that tree’s up to.
Enjoy hearing “We’re going to get you. We’re going to get you. Not another peep. Time to go to sleep” every time you try to go to sleep now.
When I first heard that there would be a children’s film based on my favorite children’s book of all time, I thought “Cool! Hopefully they do it justice!”
Then I saw Flint Lockwood. I was furious. My anger was unparalleled. I couldn’t believe that Hollywood would tree-rape my childhood imagination like that. It was then and there that I put my foot down and said “I’ll never watch Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. EVER.”
Fast Forward to Mike’s Junior Year of College
By my junior year of college, the stress of Senior Seminar was settling in at an uncomfortable pace. After a night of working nonstop on whatever project was tightening it’s grip, I liked to settle down with a movie. Not just any movie, however, the movie that saved my sanity in 2010. That’s right, guys; I was obsessed. Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs was (and is) one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen in my life.
If you haven’t seen it, you’re judging me right now. That’s okay, I would have to.
Oh! And a trailer just released too!
I’ve never really been the kind of person to be ahead of the game with comic to screen adaptations. I changed that with Kick-Ass 2 and after reading the comic I can safely say we’re in for a treat this year (if you like Chloë Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, that is)
The first Kick-Ass was incredible across the board, I saw it three times in theaters and watch it regularly on Bluray. I love it. This time around it’s probably going to be even darker, which is probably a good thing. With the introduction of Jim Carrey and Donald Faison, we might be in for a treat too! I mean, just look at Jim Carrey:
Alright, you’ve suffered through my awful grammar and sub-par writing long enough! Here’s the last one:
Some of you understand the picture I chose to illustrate for this one. Some of you don’t. I’d fill you in myself, but I think Wikipedia can do it better. READ:
The Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy (also known as the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy) is a series of films directed by Edgar Wright, written by Simon Pegg and Wright, produced by Nira Park, and starring Pegg and Nick Frost.
The first two films in the series are Shaun of the Dead (2004), “a romantic comedy with zombies”, and Hot Fuzz (2007), a buddy cop action/comedy film. A third film, The World’s End, began shooting in September 2012 for a 2013 release.
Each film in the trilogy is connected to a Cornetto ice cream flavour – both of the films released to date feature scenes in which one of the main characters purchases a Cornetto of the appropriate flavour. Shaun of the Dead features a red strawberry flavoured Cornetto, which signifies the film’s bloody and gory elements, Hot Fuzz includes the blue original Cornetto, to signify the police element to the film, and The World’s End will feature the green mint choc-chip flavour. The use of the three flavours/colours of Cornetto is a reference to Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Three Colours film trilogy.
This will be a good movie. I promise. That’s all that needs to be said.
In case it isn’t though, just look at that cast!
Thanks for reading, Outcasts! Let me know what you’re looking forward to this year!
