The hobbit, I love the batman films but I can't bring myself to care about them until I'm actually watching one of them.
- Dark Knight Rises
I don't know how to feel with Prometheus. Love the first two aliens, but the last Ridley Scott film I saw - Robin Hood - was an abomination of movie, based on a very famous script (Nottingham). It was like he took the interesting murder mystery story and turned it into Gladiator with a bow. A boring one that that. I'm just glad I didn't hear about the original Nottingham story until after I saw the movie. I might have disliked it even more.
For me, Pixar's Brave is at the top of my list. I love animation and I haven't really loved a Pixar movie since Wall-E (which is among my all-time favorite movies ever). After that I am most excited by The Avengers but not so much because of the characters or its blockbuster potential. I just want to see if the producers can pull off this mash-up of characters already established in their own films. Will we have to sit through backstory again for each hero or will they just jump over that assuming that we've seen Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Incredible Hulk? How will these headlining stars come together fluidly? How much time will be given to the new guy? Will this lofty idea of taking characters and their actors (mostly) from other films and combining them into one work? I am intrigued to see what the end result is. I know what to expect from The Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit, so while I will see those, too there is little mystery around them. The Avengers could be great or it could be a mediocre mess. That potential is entertaining to me. Prometheus looks promising too, but I can't get too worked up about it for long. I loved the trailer, though.
Prometheus is the Alien prequel by Ridley Scott. Pretty much assured to be at least good considering his outstanding track record.
Kingdom of Heaven and Robin Hood were boring as fuck. The trailers of Prometheus looks as if it were another Avatar-style thing. But heck, I still love me some Ridley Scott.
have to go with the Hobbit. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is an intriguing idea and i am looking forward to giving it a try, along with Prometheus. I have yet to see a Batman film that i have really liked (old or new) so i can't say i have any real interest in this one. not on the list to choose form, but Moonrise Kingdom and Django Unchained will be must-sees for me, on par with The Hobbit in anticipation.
The Dark Knight Rises is the only film I'm legitimately pumped for. Nothing that I've seen of The Avengers looks all that interesting (which is weird, because I just about loved all the Marvel tie-in films up to this point) and while Amazing Spider-Man looks better than expected, I'm still really not entertaining the notion of watching Spider-Man's origin story once again. Not even for Emma Stone.
The Hobbit looks great but I haven't seen enough of it to get excited. Prometheus has a fantastic trailer, but I've never seen (and therefore have no affinity for) the Alien films so that movie does nothing for me. Haven't seen enough of Abe Lincoln to get excited.
