This awesome Vintage Super 8 poster brings most has to the original blockbuster movies, like The Goonies, Indiana Jones, 007, Star Wars and many others..

I’m so looking forward to this J.J. Abrams film! Its been getting very good reviews from the States.

South Africa is waiting!

I’m excited for this movie! J.J. Abrams has been one of my favourite directors for awhile. And now the highly secretive Super 8 coming soon. We already revealed the plot.

I’ve been waiting for this for awhile.. From the first time I saw the trailer, I was hooked. It showed nothing! Which is unusual that it got me hooked, but the suspense was riveting. A lot of big words for a trailer that really made little sense. So now here is the official details thanks to Daily Blam

Directed by J.J. Abrams from his original script, the film is produced by Steven Spielberg and stars Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basson, Joel Courtney, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills and Amanda Michalka. Super 8 hits theaters June 10th

“In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.”

Wow… just watched some trailers for some movies Im really excited to see. Some dissappointing, some leaving me anxious with anticipation.

Here is just a breakdown of trailers of recommending.

Green lantern, at first struck me as very cheesy. but special effects and what not, really turned my mind around.

Captain America, What Im most looking forward to in the movie is Red Skull, Hugo Weaving is one of my favourite actors.

Battle Field LA, is probably the best one of the lot. really gritty feel to it. music was a good choice.

Super 8, Spielberg and Abrams cannot really do any wrong. and the trailer I believe is proof of that.

Pirates of the Caribbean: on stranger tides, looks like it will follow its predecessors really well. Black Beard, and his daughter are welcomed characters. would have been great to have the full cast there though.

Cowboys and Aliens, Great cast, and a great director

Then the movies im still looking forward to even though the trailers were not so grand are Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and Thor. although great trailers i pictured them differently and was much happier with the SuperBowl TV spots.

there are a lot of movies to be excited about… thing is, to still be excited after the movie is another ball game altogether.

Here are just some of the films being released that I am quite excited about.

Paul, The wisecracking alien starring duo Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost, as well as Sigourney Weaver. ive always been a fan of their Movies, Hot Fuzz and Shawn of the Dead. I expect this be no different.

Another (what looks to be very cool) alien flick…

Battle Los Angeles, Ill put up more of the posters for this movie, really amazing artwork. movies stars the tough but gorgeous Michelle Rodriguez.

Notice the freaky look dude in the backround…

Violent aliens seem to be a popular thing this year, also  with JJ abrams and Spielbergs Super 8 being released. I like secrecy around projects, and both Spielberg and Abrams have exceptionally good track records.

And failled moon mission Apollo 18. Alien movies are only as good as their Aliens. This documentary “lost footage” type film has created quite a lot of hype. it will either be really good, or absolute manure.

And if you prefer your Aliens a bit more err… advanced then Michaels Bays Transformers: Dark of the Moon is right up your alley. The second movie got a lot of drama due to special effects and racially stereotypical robots (thats right… robots) Bay has promised to redeem the franchise with the 3rd movie. I didnt really have an issue with Revenge of the Fallen.

Onto Super Heroes now… technically an Alien (my opinion anyway) is Chris Hemsworth as the  Norse God Thor following in the footsteps of Iron Man, and Hulk to join forces for the Avengers Movie. Supporting cast including Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman.

And who would the Avengers be without their leader, featuring in Captain America: The first Avenger, starring Chris Evans and all American hero. Also stars the always excellent Hugo Weaving as communist scum, the Red Skull.

Onto Fantasy movies right now… the much anticipated Sucker Punch where a little imagination goes a looooong way. Blondie and the girls battle through Dragons, Samurais and Brothels to escape their reality.

There’s the horror thriller fantasy rehashing of Red Riding Hood, where the wolf is a non-traditional werewolf. visually spectacular.

And also a particular favourite of mine is Gore Verbinski’s Pirates of the Carribbean – On Stranger Tides where Sparrow and Barbosa take on Blackbeard and his rather stunning daughter played by Penelope Cruz

Then for more of a vintage horrow flare, you can catch Scream 4, where Neve, Courtney, David and a long list of next generation Actors/actresses get chased around by a(only find out who at the very end)ghost masked murderer. should still be fun to watch.

then probably the biggest question mark on this list is Fast 5. Should have amazing stunts and even better cars, while still being a fan of Vin Diesel I was concerned about the 4th film as the focus was not really on the cars but the questionable acting. let me know your thoughts on this one in particular.especially with the addition of a few new people. should this movie be made, or is there a market Im seriously not aware of.

Then on the Lighter side… Hangover 2 is out, and this time another country and a monkey are involved… 1st film was hugely successful, and rightly so. it was hilarious.

And Lastly one for the Kids… and Grown ups, Kung Fu Panda 2 is coming. Ive noticed that animated sequels (although not needed) are generally very good. with awesome voice over cast and endless possibilites, Po and the furious 5 surely wont disappoint.

This is not be all and end all of possibly great movies, we’re still expecting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, as well as The Green Lantern amongst others. What movies are you excited to see? There will be more info on each individual movie as time goes on.
