My Most Anticipated Movies of 2009

I figured that, since we’re getting closer to the summer movie schedule, now would be as good a time as any to post my list of movies that I anticipate seeing over the course of 2009. It’s definitely a truncated list, based on what I knew was coming out at the end of 2008. All release dates are subject to change, and additions to the list are a definite possibility.

The list of films is grouped by month. It starts out with April and goes to December. At the beginning of each month, I’ll be posting a new entry more information about each of the movies for that month, including (if available) a trailer for the film. I’ll also be expanding on my reasons for wanting to see the film, and whatever else strikes me at the time.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Shooting IMAX sequences

This is one of the most exciting things that I have heard in some time. My favorite movie of 2007 was Transformers, primarily because I grew up watching Transformers. That and Peter Cullen, the original voice of Optimus Prime, returned to reprise his role.

The movie was fun and, every time the Transformers appeared, I was blown away. There just wasn’t enough time with the Transformers. They were only on screen for about 25% of the film, if that.

For movie 2, I created a want list for the sequel that I’ll be posting again after seeing the sequel, along with my analysis of how I feel they did, and how much they may have met my expectations or not.

Now, thanks to the inspiration of The Dark Knight, Michael Bay is joining the crowd of those that are filming sequences with IMAX cameras. These are films that deserve to be seen on IMAX, and Michael Bay is the right man for the job.
