Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…

The Top 10 films to see in 2009

watchmen-niteowl-logo-hdrimg10. WATCHMEN I never read the graphic novel and the trailer doesn’t look overly exciting, but I’m still totally intrigued by the hype!

9. LAND OF THE LOST While I’m against turning the material into a comedy, I’m still interested in seeing what Will Ferrell does with the concept as I was a fan of this 70’s Saturday morning TV show.

7. PUBLIC ENEMIES Michael Mann’s take on the notorious 1930’s gangsters John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd. Christian Bale and Johnny Depp star! 

6. TERMINATOR SALVATION I love sci-fi and this franchise. While startrekcrewbanner-440x159this installment has a decidedly different feel than the first three, I’ll still be there on opening day. Will Arnold make a cameo? Rumor has it, it’s a possibility!

5. FRIDAY THE 13th Lets face it, this franchise, along with Jason, is one that will never really die! While I know that this remake will never have the shock factor of the 1980 original, I’m still very interested in seeing it.

4. STAR TREK In JJ Abrams we trust. While I’m not the biggest of trek fans, I do believe Abrams will deliver a quality product that will broaden the scope from its loyal but stagnant fanbase. 

3. 2012 I LOVE the disaster genre. Roland Emmerich brings us his take on the end of the world in a film that features tidal waves and volcanic eruptions. John Cusack, Amanda Peet and Woody Harrelson should make for a solid cast.

2. TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE The original 1973 film, starring Walter Mathau and Robert Shaw, was one of that decades best transformers2empireusaversiand a classic. Very few films captured the feeling of NYC the way that movie does. While I like the idea of Denzel Washington in the Matthau role of transit detective, I’m not as fond of seeing John Travolta in the Shaw role as the villain who takes over a NYC subway train and hold the passengers hostage. He’s just way overexposed doing the bad guy thing at least five times too many! Still I’m curious what director Tony Scott will create with this redo.

1. TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN Transformers was my favorite summer movie of 2007. Yes I’m a Michael Bay fan!
