Most Anticipated Movies of 2010

Film School Rejects.com has created a list of the 30 Most Anticipated Movies of 2010. A lot of these movies I haven't heard of, and some I wouldn't put on my "Anticipated" list even if I had (like #10: Piranha 3-D? Are you kidding me??). I think I'll go ahead and blame not getting Premiere magazine anymore for having no clue as to what some of these movies are, or that I just haven't gone to the movies enough to see the trailers for these films if they have them out already. Then again, if I did see their trailers, they probably weren't that memorable to begin with.

I won't go over the whole list, but let's just touch on FSR's top three whose order probably won't be the same for most of you, I'm sure.

At #3 they have Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 1 which I'm pretty sure is at #1 on the list for most of you reading this right now. I'm not highly anticipating this film (in fact the whole year looks rather un-exciting to me), but I'm definitely going to see it the first weekend it's out. If not November 19th (just 10 months and 3 days away) at least a day or two later.

#2 is a film that I'm not sure I've heard much about, but it does sound appealing: Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, and directed by Christopher Nolan. I'm familiar enough with DiCaprio's Shutter Island (which they have listed at #6), but the only clues I have about Inception are what FSR wrote about it. Sounds exciting, though, and unlike Shutter Island I might actually see Inception.

#1 is Iron Man 2. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Iron Man and I'll be there this May when it comes out, but I don't think I'll be hoping out of my socks to see what may be the blockbuster hit of the summer.

For me, after looking over the whole list, it looks like I'm going to have to wait until Christmas for my most anticipated movie of the year: Tron: Legacy, which, rumor has it, will be in 3-D! 3-D computer-generated images that are suppose to be computer-generated images and not imitations of "real-world" images pounce off the screen for an amazing visual experience. Friggin' light-cycles in 3-friggin'-Deeeeeee!!! How cool is that?!?!?

Obviously, this is a generational choice (the original Tron came out over 25 years ago), but if I was going to see only one movie this year, it's Tron: Legacy

There are a few other cool looking movies on the list that, at first glance, I'll probably see, too. The Green Hornet, Robin Hood, Toy Story 3 (which would probably go at #2 on my list), Edge of Darkness, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and, what the heck, Clash of the Titans.

Oh, yeah, and The Black Swan (listed at #22 or the list), which I think I've mentioned before in a previous toonlet post. FSR's comments on the film are pretty funny:

If Aronofsky does anything right, it’s tight, intimate character work, and by everything I’ve heard, this thriller sounds fantastic. For your prurient side, there’s Portman and Kunis promising a lesbian sex scene, and for your academic side, there’s Portman and Kunis promising a Sapphic encounter.
The Last Airbender is definitely my most anticipated this coming year.
