2012: Most anticipated films

1. The Dark Knight Rises
When i was in elementary school i always went nuts for Batman movies. In high school it was Batman Begins. Though who remember 4 years ago, remember how much i fell for the Dark Knight. I think Nolan has changed the face of the superhero film, his films are leap & bounds above the rest, and for good reason. I love Batman, but i hope he dies....or do a thing where Batman lives and Bruce Wayne dies....will make for an epic film!

Quentin Tarantino is a god...all there is to it. Sure the cast is odd, but QT can do wonders with a cast like this, and make this plot really in his own universe.

3. Lords of Salem
Rob Zombie after the Devil's Rejects was quite the darling in the horror world, he then let alot of folks down with his remake of Halloween, then raped us with Halloween 2. Now he is back, and better than ever, this cast is amazing, the face that he shot an entire second feature for the film within the film is amazing. I am stoked to say the least!

4. Moonrise Kingdom
Wes Anderson is alot of things, and among them is one of my favorite filmmakers of all time! His films are in fact Wes Anderson films, and much like Zombie, has a hell of a cast. I can not wait to see how Norton, Keitel & Willis work in his mind!

A trippy horror film from Don Coscarelli and starring Paul Giamatti! That is all you need to know!

Just watch Bronson & my favorite film of 2011 Drive, and you will see why this is on the list!

7. The Avengers
Marvel has done an amazing thing with their universe films, and both the teaser & t he trailer were amazing! It will be different to see how this one turns out with the ensemble but it will truly be an event film!

Erm Coen's!

Alfonso Cuaron's first feature since Children of Men....if it is half as amazing as that, then we are in for a great film!

10.The Master
PT Anderson is back, and after a 5 year hiatus i hope for great things!

11. The Hobbit
Now i love the Rings movies but i prefer the Hobbit book to the Rings books, so this one is a must see!

12. Cabin in the Woods
Odd looking flick, and it took long enough to come out!

13. The Amazing Spider-Man
Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker is perfect casting, plus he is in fact a HUGE fan of the comic!

14. tie Frankenweenie/Dark Shadows
A Passion project for Johnny Depp, and a remake of Burton's early shorts.

15. Prometheus
Ridley Scott returning to the ALIEN universe!
