Movies I Am Excited To Watch in 2011

In the backwards world that I live in 2011 is my chance to watch all of the movies in 2010 that I was (and still am) excited about.  I typically only go to the movies twice a year and save those viewings for the big blockbusters I am excited about.  In 2010 I only got to see Iron Man 2.  Well, I also saw Tangled with my daughter, which was a great movie, but does not count as it was not on MY list.

Scouring the boxing week sales I was able to find my top 4 “2010 want to watch” movies on Blu-ray for a great deal.  Now I just have to find times when my wife and daughters are otherwise occupied so I can actually watch them.  They are:

I’m getting too old for this sh!t

As an “adult” with my own children, you would think that a Spider-man bobble head would be an inappropriate gift. Well, you might think that if you stink.

Which Avenger Will Die?

I was having a conversation in my head about this article, arguing whether or not I thought China Miéville was a pompous wind-bag with regards to his JJ Abrahms comments.  I started thinking about my own history with Star Trek.  I have watched most of the movies and watched a fair bit of TNG and Voyageur, but I never have considered myself a fan.  Let’s explore that for a moment.

Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern

First seen by me at SuperHeroHype:

Great image.  Hard to know how to feel about the movie as not much info will be available, but I think this will probably be along the lines of Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man, which should be great.  I’m a big Ryan Reynolds fan, so this followed by Deadpool (the real Deadpool, not that crap in Wolverine) will hopefully be a fun one-two-punch of comicy-RR goodness.
