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:

Red State – Can Kevin Smith Redefine Indie Filmmaking Again?

This post over at Live for Films with a great pic of John Goodman got me going on Kevin Smith again, but let’s start with a pic.

I am loving the Red State of the Union podcasts with Kevin Smith (part of the SModcast network).  It is much more than just a way to promote his latest film.  It is a film making clinic in which he brings in different people who have worked on this film and talks about the film making process.  The passion expressed by his coworkers bolsters my excitement for this movie.

Kevin Smith’s “Red State” Poster is very Non-Kevin Smith … in a good way (Updated)

Updated on November 2, 2010, see bottom for details.

I have not been this excited for a Kevin Smith movie since Chasing Amy.  I think it is great that Kevin Smith is stretching out into new genres.  As much as I’m a big fan, the dick-and-fart jokes has been played out.  I know it is very much a part of Kevin’s soul, but it does not need to be played out endlessly on the screen.  Especially now that the SModcast network exists as a much better outlet for that type of expression.

Here is the poster, and he tweeted earlier today that the trailer is in process.

No goofballs or pop culture references? I’m there!
