Look-Forward to Movies of 2008

Yes, here I go again, talking about movies. As I’ve stated before, I’m a huge movie buff, and I have a list of must see movies before the end of the year is out. I’ll start with my favorite one to look forward to and go down the list.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

As I’ve also stated before, I love the Indiana Jones movies, and I’m definitely looking forward to this one. Personally, I hope this one outshines every other movie this year (which it most likely will) and Spielberg and Lucas will team up for another sequel. Both George Lucas and Harrison Ford have hinted at the possibility of a sequel. The only thing that could ruin this film for me is if Indy and Marion (reprised by Karen Allen) get married, Indy gets killed, or Shia LaBeouf’s character Mutt Williams turns out to be Indy’s son. I’m rather looking forward to the science fiction aspect of this upcoming film.


This movie will probably end up as one of the most controversial films in history. It’ll also probably be at the top of everyone’s Worst Movies of 2008 list. (Those lists mean nothing at all, by the way. Classics such as Raiders of the Lost Ark are often found on those kind of lists.) But Expelled is on its way to being one of the most eye-opening films of the year. It won’t be a great success money-wise, but in the long run I believe it’ll be a gem.

Iron Man

This movie looks really, really good. I think it’s only one of the two opponents of Indy 4. Robert Downey Jr. looks as if he’ll give the most riveting performance of a superhero yet. It looks to be a blend of Batman, James Bond, and Fantastic 4. The CGI looks astounding, the actors seem to be well-chosen, and the story is one of the most beloved by comic book enthusiasts.


The Dark Knight

R. I. P. Heath Ledger. I believe that the tragic actor will give one of the most memorable performances ever as the all-around favorite villain The Joker. Now, to get this straight out, I simply dislike Christopher Nolan, the director of this film. His style is ok, but his casting techniques are downright arrogant. And his approach to these films. I believe he achieves something he doesn’t meant to. But this movie is going to be a success. It is the other big contender for Indy 4. This movie will be a hit for sure. What with the hype around Heath Ledger, there are going to be a LOT of people racing to see this movie.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

This movie is going to seriously disappoint die-hard fans of the book. That’s just the simple truth. The trailer looks awesome, but it already shows FAR more action than was in the book! There were no large amassed armies with catapults in the book! The fight scenes were between Miraz and Peter, and now it looks as if Caspian is going to be fighting his uncle himself. And the trailer obviously shows Caspian and Trumpkin the dwarf going to fetch the Pevensies. Now, there are some things I’m fair excited to see: improved sword fight scenes, and most of all, Reepicheep. The BBC version of Reepicheep was just terrible. I can’t wait to see Disney’s take on him. But if the rumors of a Caspian-Susan kiss scene are anywhere near to the truth, then this movie is going to be a gigantic stinker.

    yeah, well, Prince Caspian is ruined. Caspian and Susan kiss. i’ve actually seen it with my own two eyes. although Dark Knight and Indy are definitely on my go-see-in-theaters list, and maybe Iron Man.

Quote of the Amount of Time I Want to Leave it Up Here

"I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've seen C-Beams... glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost... like tears... in rain. Time... to die." ~Roy Batty (Blade Runner)
