My Pick for Movies of 2007

I like period/costume dramas…whatever you call them…so I’d really like to see it. Plus I’m actually reading the book…Hopefully I can finish it before I have to return it to the library though. The director is also the guy who brought us Run Lola Run and The Princess and the Warrior. I of course have never watched Run Lola Run but I loved the Princess and the Warrior. The Perfume trailer has been out for a while now and it does look good too…So check out the trailer

The Invisible
A teenager is attacked and left for dead and becomes a spirit of somekind. He goes to school and realises no one can see or hear him. He struggles to tell his friends and family where his body lies. I saw the trailer recently and I found the story interesting…sounds something like The Sixth Sense

and The Others…well maybe the teenaged version at least… although I think they’re going for more of a murder mystery type of thing. Check out the trailer

Because I Said So
This looks like a fun romantic comedy that I would actually like.I love the Gilmore Girls and this one actually stars Lauren Graham whom I’ve never seen acting in a feature film.It also has Mandy Moore who I have to say is the best singer turn actress out of the four pop princesses that came out in 1999. The trailer looks good..check the movie trailer

Its been said that this might be the ‘teen’ version of Hitchcock’s Rear Window…so of course I want to see how this turn out. But this also means I have to check Rear Window first. No trailer and posters have been release. Check out the movie profile

The Nanny Diaries
A movie adapted from a bestselling book, the Nanny Diaries stars Scarlett Johansson as a college students goes to work as a nanny for a rich family in New York. I want to watch this one because its adapted from a bestselling book…I love watching adaptations. Plus I think this one could be good. Check out the pictures here and here.

Spiderman 3
Ok you must know by now, if you’re read my previous posts that Spider-Man is pretty much my favourite comic superhero movie. It has done everything right…terrific story, great drama, awesome action sequence and cool soundtrack. Plus the spider-man costume actually looks alright. Spider-Man 3 will feature Gwen Stacy and I’m curious how they will actually be fitting her into the story…and of course we will be seeing more villains this time. Trailer is out, check it
here and here.

Shrek the Third
Pretty much the only animation I watch. Hope its still still as funny as the previous two. Check out the trailer

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
So trailer has finally been released…you can check it out here. What can I say…it looks cool. The human torch looks cool as ever…so does the Silver Sufer…hmm who is the Silver Surfer anyway? You check out the trailer

Nancy Drew
I’ve never read Nancy Drew as a child…well now i don’t heve to right…The trailer is out and you can check it out

Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
Harry’s adventures are always interesting and fun and most of all absolutely magical…even though they are supposedly to get more scarry as the years progressed…And Hogwarts…ahh I love the school…the set is amazing…just looks soo realistic…don’t u think…Check out the trailer

I’m not sure what the story is about…but its supposedly a fairytale of some kind thats adapted from Neil Gaiman novel. Saw the pictures on IMDB, it looks interesting, and the last fairytale type movie that I’ve watched was Ever After which was years ago…Hope this is good. Read the profile

Virgin Territory
Another period film…again I don’t really know what this movie is about…But it stars Mischa Barton and Hayden Christensen…so I ‘m interested to see what this movie will be like. Saw some of the movie stills…seems like a fleshy movie…I wonder if we will get to see the movie in Singapore. You can check out the pictures here.

Ok…Atonement is one of my favourite books…so naturally I’m awaiting the release of this movie.Keira Knightley is playing Cecilia the elder sister of the protagonist, Briony…I do hope that Keira’s character does not overshadow Briony…since Keira is soo famous and all….Anyway I hope its good and that it stays faithful to the book. Some stills are already out so check them out here.

The Eye
I want to watch this one because its a remake of the asian movie of the same title made by the Pang brothers. Curious if they will be able to pull this one off.

The Picture of Dorian Gray

One of my favourite books…so of course I want to see every version that is made. I’ve already seen the 1946 version which I didn’t really like. This one is a modern adaptation of the book. It stars David Gallagher aka Simon of 7th Heaven as Dorian…he is youthful and good looking enough though honestly I do not see him as Dorian…plus I’d rather watch it in its original setting. Anyway, the trailer is already out…check it out here.

The Other Boleyn Girl

Another adaptation and another period piece. This one is about two sisters who contend for the affection of a king and Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johnsson stars as the Boleyn sisters. With two of the best young actresses in Hollywood this has got to be good….right? Click here and here to view some pictures.
