Play it Again, Hollywood

It appears this year - like most years recently - is the year of the sequel/prequel. While I'll almost certainly see at least the next Matrix movie (though, it's cult status is sometimes confusing to me), and naturally the conclusion of The Lord of the Rings, I don't hold out much hope for this year's offering of big budget films.

What films are you looking forward to in the next year?

Obviously the LOTR finale, the matrix sequel should be decent as well.

Daredevil looks like it will be amusing....enough so that I''ll see it anyway. Jersey Girl should be out sometime this year, and I like Kevin Smith''s writing, so that will be worth checking out.

X-Men 2 ... along the lines of DD, should be amusing enough to spend the money to see.

I honestly don''t really know what''s coming out this year, so it''s hard to say what I''m going to go out of my way to see. Like every other year, I''m sure a few surprise movies will come out that you just *have* to see.

All of the required fare: Return of the King, X-Men and Matrix sequels.

I''m not much of Daredevil fan (I''ll get my blind martial-artist fiction from other places, thank you), but I''ll probably see the movie anyway, since the more recent comic-to-film adaptations are somehow inescapable for me.

I am thinking similar to MA17, Return of the King and X-Men 2, and I''ll probly go watch the next Matrix a couple of times, just to pick up the little things.. I could count the number of times I went to the flicks last year on one hand though. I would rather go to the pub, or get some dvds.

I enjoy watching a big name film in a cinema though.

Outside of X2, Daredevil Return of the King, and the Matrix sequels, what else is coming out?

I have no idea.... Incredible Hulk? the new Terminator? meh...

Outside of X2, Daredevil Return of the King, and the Matrix sequels, what else is coming out?

Terminator, Dumb and Dumberer, though that''s a prequel I guess, Shanghai Knights, Final Destination 2, and probably a few more I''m missing.

Funny you should ask. There just happens to be a front page article to answer your question!

Dare I say that LOTR:Return of the King is the most hotly anticipated movie of the past few years? Save the other two titles of course, but this one seems to have caught the attention of the great masses already. Damn did New Line bet on the right horse!

Roll on Return of the King and also Kill Bill... Please let Tarantino not do a four rooms with it!

At the risk of being laughed off of the site, I''m looking forward to Chicago when it hits wider release. I''m not a huge Richard Gere fan, but I''ve heard that he is rather good in it, and I really like Renee Zelweger(?).

What no mentions of Star Wars ep. 3? It''s sad that we''ve become so disillusioned with the franchise it doesn''t even rate a must-see anymore.

Return of the King is one of those ''take the day off of work'' movies though.

Ep 3 won''t be out this year.. 2004 i beleive, unless by some chance I''m horribly, horribly wrong.

It won''t be any good anyway..

Krieg, I only think no one has mentioned it because it''s still a few years away. Hard to get that excited 2 and a half years out.

I''m not going to laugh you off the site for wanting to see Chicago. I admit, I''m intrigued. I also find myself wanting to catch Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. I know Clooney directed, but I can''t imagine that Soderbergh as exec. producer would let Clooney run wild. On top of that, I think Sam Rockwell is a terrific character actor, and just the idea of Chuck Barris as a CIA agent is comedy gold to begin with.

For some reason I thought Ep. 3 was out this year. Nevermind. Go about your business.

Looking into this one, it sounds interesting as well. I''ll have to catch it.

I don''t quite know why, but I''ve become a George Clooney fan. Ocean''s 11, O Brother Where Art Thou, and Out of Sight were three Clooney films that I really, really liked. Three Kings, to a lesser degree.

Sounds like you need 50ccs of Batman & Robin, and a good shot of One Fine Day! STAT!
