I don’t care what it takes to see this movie.


Who’s with me?

  • TAKEN (September 19th)

What’s odd is that for a movie hitting in September, I had a difficult time finding a poster (quoi?! I know, right) but I did find this trailer, which makes me much happier, actually. Liam Neeson is a dad that sends his 17 year old daughter off to Paris for a vacation and she and her friend get kidnapped. Liam Neeson has some sort of mad super skills to really hurt the guys that did this, so he sets off to find his daughter and totally beat some dudes up.

Pros: Whoa, Liam Neeson, who is getting on up there but still smokin’; pissed Liam Neeson is hot; Pierre Morel, the director, also directed Banlieue 13, one of my favorite French movie crack films; Liam Neeson kicking butt is going to be rad, y’all.

Cons: The daughter and the wife, just from the trailer, bore me to tears. More Liam, please.

  • EAGLE EYE (September 26th)

Two people get set up for something another. Whatever. Guns. Action. I’m there.

Pros: Shia LaBeouf is adorably charming in a geekish sort of way; this is from the guy who directed Disturbia which actually wasn’t a half-bad Rear Window rip off; I’m not expecting greatness here, just mind-numbing action.

Cons: Billy Bob Thornton is still alive?; that lady’s voice on the phone doesn’t creep me out, it just annoys me to no end; I am afraid, eventually, they will find one million and one ways to sequelize this.

Here on 1,416 and Counting I normally do old movies. They usually haven’t been in a theater in years. However, this doesn’t mean I don’t keep up on new movies; it’s just that some of them (like Beverly Hills Chihuahua) strike me as not worth my time, suicide-inducing or a movie you couldn’t pay me to see. So this week, while I catch up on reviews and get my business in order with Netflix, I’m going to be running movies I’m absolutely itching to see in the theater by release date.

So here’s the first five movies I’m dying to see…

  • WANTED (June 27th)

Boy meets girl. Girl tells him he’s supposed to really be a super-secret assassin. Girl and boy shoot things. Woo!

Pros: Directed by the guy that did Night Watch and Day Watch; features my Russian crack-actor Konstantin Khabensky in a minor role; Angelina Jolie (with guns!); yummy James McAvoy; Morgan Freeman dropping f-bombs (God curses?); Thomas Kretschmann; the whole movie just screams “whee, let’s shoot things!”; cool gun fight scenes; yummy James McAvoy; …shirtless James McAvoy. Mmm.

James McAvoy. Yup.

Cons: Guns defy the laws of physics. Hmm. But there’s still James McAvoy, right?
