Must. See. Spiderman. (My favourite superhero, way better than batman and superman (except for michael keaton’s batman) and tobey maguire is one of the only white dudes i think is actually attractive. perfect bod.) πŸ™‚

Loverboy. Too weird, but it’s got everybody in it: Kyra Sedgewick, Marisa Tomei, Campbell Scott, Kevin Bacon, Matt Dillon, Oliver Platt.

The Pursuit of Happyness. Will Smith is the best! Looks to be very inspiring. Did you see him in Hitch? Definitely one of my favourites.

The Science of Sleep. Looks like a wonderfully silly and charming exploration of dreams and the internal landscape of the human mind by the same guy who did Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which i loved.

Oh, i love fairy tales. I was charmed by Cleveland Heep in the first trailer, without even seeing the Lady in the Water, and then i watched the second trailer and realized it was a bit more of a dark fairy tale. πŸ™‚

Dancing penguins! Happy Feet But as far as animated movies go, my favourite is still Finding Nemo (the seagulls, speaking whale, and the turtle dudes), and then this awesome clip from Shark Tale. The SHRIMP!!! Squeeeeeeee!

Kinda dumb, but just because of the internet hype leading up to the movie, ya gotta see it: Snakes on a Plane

Oooo! Charlotte’s Web! It’s always wonderful to see books you loved as a child come to the big screen (if they’re done well, that is…)

Stranger than Fiction. I don’t usually like Will Farrell, but Emma Thompson is fantastic. And Queen Latifah too.

Brad Pitt in Babel. Language, misunderstandings, and the line: “If you want to be understood…listen.”

Greg Kinnear in Little Miss Sunshine: A family on the verge of a breakdown. In a yellow VW van.
-Grandpa, am I pretty?
-You are the most beautiful girl in the whole world.
-Nah, you’re just saying that.
-No, I’m madly in love with you, and it’s not because of your brains or your personality.

And I still want to see Crash. Sandra Bullock is in it, and I think I may have spotted Daniel Dae Kim in the trailer. It looks like a moment of truth and clarity amidst the sham and drudgery that usually is Hollywood.

Speaking of Sandra Bullock, number one on this list should be The Lake House. Almost verbatim remake of the Korean film Il Mare (Shiwolae)! Woohoo! Finally Hollywood is making some sense!

Okay, okay, i think that’s enough. If you want more, go to Apple Trailers
