My Most Anticipated Movies of December 2009: Avatar, Alvin and the Chipmunks 2, The Princess and the Frog, Sherlock Holmes

This month features the release of the long awaited James Cameron film, Avatar. I hope that it’s worth the wait, in the end. I’ve been telling my friends the only things I know about it for a long time: that James Cameron is inventing a new filming technique for it, and it’ll be like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 is more or less a possibility, whereas The Princess and the Frog is a new Disney Must-See! I’ve selected Sherlock Holmes based on the creative team alone.

My Most Anticipated Movies of October 2009: Toy Story (3D), Where the Wild Things Are

This month, Pixar is finally re-releasing Toy Story in 3D. It’s the first wave in the re-introduction of the characters in a new format, as well as the promotional push for Toy Story 3, which comes out in 2010. Where the Wild Things Are also releases this month. Not looking forward to this one as much, but we’ll see!

My Most Anticipated Movies of August 2009: G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, When in Rome, Bandslam, Ponyo

This month is very light on the releases. It looks like it’ll be at the very least G.I. Joe. If Transformers 2 is still running, perhaps I’ll go see that again. It should also mark the start of filming on Voyage of the Dawn Treader. When in Rome also releases at the same time. I’m not very keen on this one, but I did stumble through the set while I was in New York in May 2008. The following week, Bandslam (Band Slam?) releases. This marks the end of the summer movie season. It wasn’t a very big summer as far as movies go, but Transformers is the tops.

My Most Anticipated Movies of July 2009: Ice Age 3, Harry Potter 6, G-Force

This month, I’ll be seeing Transformers 2 a few more times. But in between visits with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and the gang, I’ll be seeing Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Harry Potter 6 (Half-Blood Prince), and G-Force. Based on the other movies this month, Transformers will be getting a lot of business… at least from me.
