Holiday movies I wanna see

Tuesday, December 13, 2005

As opposed to summer, there are whole bunch of flicks I wanna see this winter... here is my Germy Must-See Movie List:

  • Brokeback Mountain: It's about gay cowboys, and it's not a porn film! COOL! Like I said in the past, Jake Gyllenhaal is a hot hottie and worth the price of admission alone. I wonder if they get naked on screen… who cares! I’m gonna go see it anyway. I hereby proclaim the moral obligation of all queer people to go see this movie!

  • The Producers: Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick sharing the silver screen, need I say more??? For those of you who missed them on stage in New York (I didn’t! LOSERS!), this is your perfect opportunity to see them up close and on a huge screen. Yes, it hasn’t generated all the positive buzz Chicago did, and it lacks any of the modern editing and style seen in Moulin Rouge, but it at least looks fun. Cheers to that. Oh, and no matter how good this movie is, it’s way better live, >=P, LOSERS!

  • Memoirs of a Geisha: I haven’t read the book (yes, I’m like the last person on the planet, haha), but I saw the trailer and it looks interesting. Plus, I love that Ziyi Zhang girl from the flying-Chinese-warrior movies. And, if that weren’t enough, Rob Marshall (the guy who directed the film version of Chicago and the insanely successful revival or Cabaret in NYC, which I saw two time, btw… LOSERS!) is the director! Who cares if it got snubbed at the Golden Globes, I’m there…

  • Chronicles or Narnia: The lion the witch and the wardrobe. Ok, I totally think it’s lame to make a movie and before it’s even released to already have a whole marketing plan for a series of sequels. This story has already been told in other movies as simply “The lion, the witch and the wardrobe”, so the marketing ploy is obvious. Still, anything hat has Tilda Swinton involved is usually a good bet.

  • King Kong: Ok, in all honesty I think this remake is completely unwarranted. The original is a classic and I think remaking classic movies is asking for a disappointment (why don’t they remake bad movies or disappointing ones? Then they could actually work on what originally went wrong? Doesn’t that make way more sense?!?!?). Still, the trailer rocks and I’m a total sucker for neat special effects. Plus, Naomi Watts is awesome.

  • Aeon Flux: Ok, I never read the comic or saw the cartoons, and even the trailer looked kind of crappy, but I think Charlize Theron is a goddess and just seeing Frances McDormand on screen is a delight, so, as usual, I’m there.

  • The Family Stone: Hey, Diane Keaton usually guarantees quality (usually), and the trailer looks funny, so I wanna see. It’s also always a delight to see Claire Danes in, well, anything. Plus, Luke Wilson just looks fucking hot here (if you look closely, you can see him in just a towel in the trailer). Yum.

  • The squid and the whale: I missed this flick at the Film festival in town. Argh. Laura Linney is by far my favorite actress and I LOVE seeing her do anything. She’s da woman. Also, Ana Paquin is also an interesting actress in hr own right. It’s gotten good reviews, so, as usual, I’m there.

  • Match point: They say Woody Allen is back, so I’m definitely intrigued. I enjoyed “Anything Else” and I totally still want to see Melinda & Melinda, so, I’m there.

  • Mrs. Henderson Presents: It's a musical, it's set in London and it stars Judi Dench… what’s NOT to like?!?!?! Also, British heartthrob (and queer cutie) Will Young has a small part. Yum.
