Movies I need to see.

I wish more of you movie-loving folks lived near me. There's so many movies I want to see yet!

Here's my to-see list:
Before the Devil Knows You're Dead
Eastern Promises
Enchanted
Juno
Lars and the Real Girl
Michael Clayton
Sweeney Todd
The Savages

Maybes:
Atonement: I'll probably go but I'm not expecting much, honestly.
Charlie Wilson's War: Eh. Not really interested in this one.
There Will Be Blood: I love Daniel Day Lewis. NOT a Paul Thomas Anderson fan. At all. Hmmm. Plus, the subject matter looks completely unappealing.

Not seeing:
I'm Not There: If it were the biopic of anyone but Bob Dylan, I'd go.

Already seen of award-type films:
3:10 to Yuma, American Gangster, Control Gone Baby Gone, Into the Wild, No Country for Old Men

Who I'm rooting for to be nommed, so far:
3:10 to Yuma: Russell Crowe (Best Actor or Supporting, whichever)
American Gangster: Best Supporting Actress (Ruby Dee)
Control: Sam Riley (Best Actor)
Gone Baby Gone: Ed Harris (Best Supporting Actor)
Into the Wild: Best Film, Best Original Song (any by Eddie Vedder), Best Director, Best Actor (Emile Hirsch), Best Supporting Actress (Catherine Keener), Best Supporting Actor (Hal Halbrook)


And yay, Into the Wild leads National Broadcast Critics nominations. Including a nod for Emile Hirsch! :)

The only movie I'm really looking forward to is I am Legend. :) I get excited every time I see that trailer.

I Am Legend will likely be a big blockbuster. I'm intrigued but I've already seen both previous films based on the same book so that kind of dampens the appeal for me!

A guy I work with went to see Before the Devil..said it was EXCELLENT.

I'm dying for Atonement, just because I like James McAvoy and I read the book.

Enchanted seems adorable.

Eastern Promises was great.

You know I love 3:10 and I loved No Country, but I'm partial to Cormac and I like Javier as well.

I'm not seeing the Dylan movie either.

I'm going to see PS I love you, but probably Atonement first. I haven't seen Into the Wild, I'm just not into it, even with Sean Penn and Eddie Vedder..but I will see it on DVD.

If Sam Riley could get a nomination, it would be GLORIOUS, and show how voters really do pay attention to ALL films and performances. Believe me, if I was there, I'd be at the movies almost every night!!

I'm very intrigued with "Devil," and of course I can't miss "Eastern Promises." As for PS I Love You, I love the male leads, but not the female ones. Why do they do this to us? It's so unfair!

I think that Sam Riley will likely get overlooked but I love that other actors are singling him out for praise. It was such an amazing film and he was a big reason why.

Juno looks fantastic. I definitely need to see that at some point.

I've been hearing such good things about it. I hope it measures up to the hype!

I hate to say it but the only movie I really want to see right now is Juno. Everything is *meh*-ness to me. :P

And, damn, There Will Be Blood was directed by that dorkus-melorkus? I guess I'll cross that off my really short movie list.

I think Juno is next for me. And hey, you've iconed before seeing the movie?

Yeah, I am really, really not big on Paul Thomas Anderson. And the trailer didn't exactly make me go, "Well, I have to see THAT." The only draw is DDL, really.

saw Atonement, and since I hate Kiera Knightley and really enjoyed this move, it must be great. It was beautifully shot and although it dragged in the middle, the ending is achingly beautiful. So worth it just for those last few minutes

I liked Keira at first, in Bend it Like Beckham but then I got really tired of her. So this is good to know, that you liked it despite her! :)
