Holler if you’re a Movie Junkie!!!

I’ve always raved about fantastic blockbusters and look forward to movie dates with friends! 2009 is drawing to a close and from what I remember it’s an incredible year for flicks – almost making people forget about the financial crisis and all the other problems happening right now. Just for recollection’s sake, here’s top 10 in 2009 according to Melissa Jane!

1. Avatar (December)

I’m sure few will dispute this!

2. G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra (August)

Love this movie because I was so impressed by the “technology” employed. Got me hooked! Sure it helps that Sienna Miller’s one of the leads!

3. Sherlock Holmes (November)

I watched this just a few days ago and was awed by our beloved Sherlock’s wit and intelligence. Great attempt, Guy Ritchie!

4. Bride Wars (January)

Who says chick flicks are only meant for the girls? Last I heard, boys love them too! Double yes to Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson!

5. 2012 (July)

One word: Epic! The visual effects alone grants it a standing ovation!

6. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (January)

It’s a beautiful, artistic film I would never forget. Brad Pitt’s performance was phenomenal!

7. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (June)

Who can forget Megan Fox and the film that made her famous? I love machines, anyway.

8. Angels & Demons (May)

Another of Dan Brown’s masterpiece, Angels and Demons stunned me beyond words and I remembered being thoroughly bewitched every minute as the mystery slowly unfolded.

9. Twilight: New Moon (November)

I’m not crazy about it because of Robert Pattinson. The truth is that I have a thing for vampires and I’m captivated by Kristen Stewart.

10. Star Trek

The last award has to go to another sci-fi film and not disappointments like Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

Satisfied with the results?

If not…

2010 is going to be another amazing period when countless wonderful productions are already in the making – I’ve seen the trailers, read the reviews and heard the screams of anticipation already. Are you ready to embrace more adrenaline at the movies? Let’s get started!

2. Iron Man 2

The man in that cool iron suit is back for another round of cool-fest! Tony Stark is out in the open, having revealed his identity as Iron Man and the public attention has taken its toll on him.

3. Alice in Wonderland

In this upcoming Tim Burton feature, sweet little Alice, now 17, returns to Wonderland to find that the Red Queen has overthrown her sister.

With the support of the White Queen, the Mad Hatter and the Caterpillar, Alice starts seeing flashbacks of her last visit, back when she was younger.

4. Nightmare on Elm Street

Tentative release date: April 2010

Sure to excite, and render sleepless your nights. The new Nightmare on Elm Street is a re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, the serial-killer who wields a four-bladed glove and attacks his victims in their dreams.

5. Jonah Hex

Tentative release date: June 2010

Yes you’ve seen right – it’s Megan Fox again! Jonah Hex is the story of a scarred bounty hunter from the wild west who hunts zombies for a living. When a voodoo practitioner becomes hell-bent on raising an army of the undead, Jonah (Josh Brolin) and his pretty partner-in-crime Leila (Megan Fox) must do everything in their power to stop the evil practitioner from turning the Wild West into a zombie wasteland. I like.

6. Salt

A (somewhat) new twist on the classic spy flick, Salt revolves around renegade CIA agent Evelyn Salt who is on the run from authorities after a defector accused her of being a Russian sleeper spy. Having sworn an oath to duty, honour, and country, Evelyn must use all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture, protect her husband and clear her name before the world’s most powerful forces erase any trace of her existence.

In yet another re-boot of a popular movie franchise, the new Karate Kid tells the story of a young kid named Dre who, with his mother, moves to Beijing.

8. Legion

Tentative release date: January 2010

Trust me when I tell you that this is going to be one epic movie. Legion revolves around a group of strangers in an eatery who become the first line of defense when God, believing the human race is no longer worthy of Him, decides to end their existence. The group’s only ally? A fallen archangel named Michael who voluntarily falls to Earth to save the savior of mankind.

Another sci-fi film as a follow up to Tron in 1982 – Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidante (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
