5 Movies I Am Pumped For; Winter 2010
This is my list of 5 movies I am pumped for this winter, a.k.a. the drama season:
1. Black Swan - Darren Aronofsky brings the crazy back to the cinema this winter with his trademark 'tortured-people-and-their-terrible-lives', and it will end with the main character definitely killing themselves.(Example: Every Darren Aronofsky movie ever).
2. Somewhere - Sofia Coppola is hanging out in a hotel again. I am going to love it.
3. The King's Speech - Colin Firth plays the king of the U.K. during WWII who has to lead his country, but he has a crippling speech impediment. Co-stars Helana Bonaham Carter and Geoffrey Rush. In summary, this is Oscar crack.
4. 127 Hours - Danny Boyle directs his latest movie since Slumdog Millionaire. James Franco stars as a hiker that gets his arm trapped under a rock in the middle of a completely deserted canyon. I won't tell you how it ends, but it involves a pocket knife, a video camera and he cuts his arm off.
5. Sucker Punch - I was not the biggest fan of Watchmen, but 300 was so good that I will give Zack Snyder another chance. It's about crazy girls that escape into their minds and fight zombies and ninjas with machine guns, dragons and explosions. If a 10 year old could make a movie, this would pretty much be it.
