This morning, I was surfing around my iPod Touch while drinking my coffee and bought Miranda Lambert’s Revolution album. While it was downloading, I clicked on movies. The only time we go to the theater is to see Harry Potter movies so, with 7.2 coming out soon, I’m not sure we’ll ever go again after that. Therefore, I usually having something of a running “I want to see that” list lurking in the murky recesses of my mind.
Holy DVD releases, Batman! Just from the “New and Noteworthy” screen, I came up with this list of movies I’ve been waiting to see:
Unknown (Liam Neeson AND Aidan Quinn!)
The Adjustment Bureau (I think I’m going to want this to be a Bourne movie and it’s not, so I’m doomed to disappointment.)
The Eagle (Don’t really have high hopes for this one, but hello Channing Tatum!)
Battle: Los Angeles (Hoping for cheesy action/disaster movie cheesiness on a grand scale.)
Red Riding Hood (This is a little out of our usual viewing box, but the trailers intrigued us.)
True Grit (My husband wants to see this a little more than I do, but I’m always up for a good western.)
Gnomeo & Juliet (For the song, if nothing else.)
I Am Number Four (I’m not even sure I know what this is about, but the trailers looking interesting and it might be fun for the whole family.)
No Strings Attached (Looks cute. The only movie I’ve ever liked Ashton Kutcher in was The Guardian, though—and, whoa, did I like him in that a lot—and I’m lukewarm on her, so I might wait for Netflix streaming.)
The King’s Speech (I’m really meh about this one, but I adore Helena Bonham Carter. Madly.)
Tangled (This just looks fun. Waiting for my sister to get her copy back from our uncle so I can abscond with it.)
The movie I currently have from Netflix on disc: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, but I can’t get the family to watch it. While he’s in four of my all-time-favorite movies (Con Air, The Rock, Gone in 60 Seconds and National Treasure—but only the first one) Nic Cage has little credibility with the younger crowd and my husband’s just not interested.
Have you seen any of these? Recommendations? Warnings? And what movie do you most want to see? (Here at Casa Stacey, it’s Harry Potter 7.2, though we won’t brave the theater the first week. Maybe not even the second.)
