After seeing my first movie in 2007, Children of Men, and having waited the better half of 2006 to see it, the bar has been set high for the year. I put together what turned out to be a pretty decent list of what else I'm looking forward to in 2007:
Children of Men (January) - Spectacular social commentary on where our world is headed.
The Last King of Scotland (January) - Intriguing story based on Idi Amin's dictatorship in Uganda.
Hot Fuzz (February) - From the masterminds who brought us Shaun of the Dead!!!
300 (March) - Another movie based on a Frank Millers graphic novel, the movie just looks badass.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (March) - There's hope, it is completely computer animated.
Ratatouille (June) - Next Pixar Movie
Oceans 13 (June) - Apparently 2007 is "The Year of The Trilogy".
Live Free or Die Hard (June) - NICE!
The Simpsons Movie (July) - There is no denying Groenings genius.
Transformers (July) - Hopefully Steven Spielberg can balance out Michael Bay for some sweet action sequences AND a good story.
Spider-Man 3 (May) - Sandman
Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's End (May) - Can Captain Barbossa help save Jack Sparrow and their livelihood, piracy itself?
Rush Hour 3 (August) - Hilarious duo is back!
...And I know it won't be a "Movie of 2007", but my list wouldn't be complete without it:
The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (May 2008)
...and two more to look forward to in 2008:
The Brazilian Job (2008) - Italian Job Sequel.
Indian Jones 4 (2008) - Will the wait for a solid script be worth it?
