2010 Film Preview: Part 2

You can find my 'Top Ten Most Anticipated Films of 2010' by going to Part 1 of my film preview or by Clicking Here.

In Part 2 of this film preview I'm going to delve into some more random categories. I guess once you start watching more than 100 films a year, you begin to become a little cynical towards films, and it's difficult to truly anticipate a film. This is the outlet you might find some of the more popular 2010 entries that I have one reason or another to begin to doubt. Did I miss anything big? Let me know.

"Not Quite Top Ten"

"Want to like, But Have My Doubts I Will"

Seems to be falling into the Burton curse, "You seen one Burton film, you seen them all"

Columbus steered the Harry Potter ship right, so what makes us think he couldn't do it here? Oh, the release date? Yea, that makes me think so too.

It looks like it will be one of the biggest comedies of the year, but it doesn't do anything for me.

Steve Carrell and Tina Fey in a comedy? Then why does the trailer not garner a single laugh out of me?

Another in the long line of remakes, but I've always thought this series had the best chance at being a horror film with some decent substance. Still, Bay is producing...and so far only the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake has been any good.

Didn't really care for the first, but could the second one be better?

"Guilty Pleasures"

An action junkies dream film. Stallone is on a creative run after the successes of Rocky Balboa and Rambo, so I hope this becomes the action film everyone knows it can be.

I'm a sucker for the first two films, and I actually look forward to this one. With the original gang and Spike Jonze' involvement, how could this go wrong?

As you all may know, I'm a fan of the series and after a great Saw VI, I'm excited to see the directions they end up going with this one. Still, I wish they would've carried over the director form VI.

Van Damme turned down The Expendables because he said Sly didn't want to give him a 'character'. I guess Van Damme thought this direct to DVD film was the film he needed. Still, there is actually some decent buzz on the action in this one.

"Curious, Keeping My Eye On It"
