Big Movies Coming to You in 2007

TMNT
I used to watch the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons as kid. It sure would be interesting to see how this movie is gonna be like.I think it was a good move to actually make a CG animated movie rather than a live action movie and the trailers look pretty good too. But honestly I don’t think it would do too well at the box office though.


Spider-Man 3
Now this movie will of course do well.I love the Spider-Man movies. They’re always fun,with a good story,great action sequences and of course it has a great sountrack too. Can’t wait to see it.

Shrek the Third
This is probably the only animated film that I watch and like…The Shrek films are always very funny. Love the fairytale spoofs.


Pirates of the Caribbean: At World Ends
I don’t get how the Pirates of the Caribbean films are soo successful. I watched the first one…and I just find it ok…actually much too long too.And I wasn’t exactly looking forward to sequels. But anyway other people love so I’m sr

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Although the Fantastic Four movie wasn’t as good as the Spider-Man and X-Men movies …I still thought it was a fun movie…ok well…I like SuperHero movies…I want to see how this will turn out … good I hope. Neither the trailer nor the poster has been released yet


Transformers
Yes…I used to watch the cartoons too. Its interesting how the cartoons of my generation have made it to the big screens in 2007. Just saw the teaser trailer…its ok…I’m doubtful though that it will be any good. I just think it’s a mammoth task to make it into a live action movie and to make it as realistic as possible…well that’s just what I think.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
I love the Harry Potter movies. Its just fun and I love seeing the magical world of Harry Potter come to life…especially Hogwarts of course. I’m sure there are tons of other people excited about this movie too. Oh and the seventh book has been named…Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The Simpsons Movie
After more than 10 years on tv…they finally decided to make it into a movie. I’m certainly curious if its gonna be good.

She’ the Man (2006)


A friend of mine recommended this movie. She told me that it was a funny movie. I wasn’t really too keen on it. I’ve outgrown watching teen flicks…they no longer appeal to me…but I do watch them from time to time. And if you’re not having too good a day…and just want to sit back and watch a movie where you don’t have to… pretty much think…then teen flicks are it…so are romantic comedies by the way.

So I finally watched it.What can I say…its pretty much for the tween/teen population…with plenty of good looking 20 somethings still playing teenage roles. Amanda Bynes still looks like she’s playing her role of Holly from What I Like About You. The story: Viola(Amanda) disguises as her brother Sebastian so she could join the schools boys soccer team…the point being , to show that she is as good as any boy at playing soccer. Viola’s/Sebastian’s roomate is Duke, who has a crush on Olivia but Olivia has a crush on Sebastian…and along the way, Viola/Sebastian falls for Duke…and so occurs some comical mishaps. OK so the movie is funny but there wasn’t any real laugh out loud moments.And of course it is predictable too.I think it would have been a pretty decent movie for the genre…if not for the overflow of cheese. The scene where Viola/Sebastian had her friends act like they were lusting over her were over done. One friend was enough. And they had to make Duke disapprove of Sebastians objectification of girls?? And near the end they had Duke’s friend profess his love for the nerdy girl??? How much cheesy moments can they throw into a movie?

Overall though, its a fun movie for the kids,with good looking people and a pretty good sountrack filled with fairly recent pop tunes that were very fitting for the film.If you love teen flicks I’m sure you love this one too.
