Oh, the movies I’ll watch!

I was flipping through this little booklet that came free with my 8 Days last week and it had upcoming movies for the first half of 2009. Some of them look really exciting! So here is a list of those I want to catch:

January

1. Changeling – 9 year-0ld son missing, mum frantic, police brings home a different boy

2. Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea – Doesn’t the title itself make you want to watch it? =) And it’s a mermaid story too!

3. Seven Pounds – Suicidal man attempts to atone for a mistake by performing good deeds for seven strangers

4. Doubt – It’s Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman. =)

5. Marley & Me – It’s a doggy show! =)

6. The Soloist – About a homeless schizophrenic who turns out to be a musical prodigy

February

1. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas – A Holocaust movie

2. The Reader – A movie about Nazi Germany

3. Valkyrie – A movie about Nazi Germany (Hmm…what is it about Feb that attracts Nazi movies???)

4. The Brothers Bloom – A movie about a scam and with magical realism written all over it

5. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – A story akin to my favourite, The Confession of Max Tivoli, about a man who ages backwards

March

1. Hotel for Dogs – It’s a doggy film. =)

2. Frost/Nixon – A battle of wits involving one of my favourite enigmatic presidents

June

1. Up – About a 78 year-old man who travels the world to have the time of his life. It’s a Pixar film! =)

So, any movie khakis want to join me? =)
