I need to apologize to my readers as my inconsistency has definitely taken a toll on my blog about movies. Life has just been extremely busy with school and other aspects and I’m ashamed to say it but the last movie I watched was The Dark Knight Rises. Though the offerings Hollywood has provided has been nothing short of mediocre, it’s still no excuse for not blogging. I promise that I will continue to update with not just trailer updates, but opinion articles, news and reviews. I will be attending The Perks Of Being A Wallflower screening with a friend this weekend so that will be a treat. The fall season is also coming up which is great considering I can’t handle anymore aliens or explosions.
So in honor of the upcoming fall season that I am greatly anticipating, here are five films that I’m looking forward to the most with some other superlatives.
Most Anticipated Horror Film: House At The End Of The Street
Thank goodness the Saw franchise finally died. But now we’re treated to another repetitive and compulsive series, The Paranormal Activities, or America’s Funniest Home Videos. This is not the only franchise continually mass producing dull films including the Resident Evil and Silent Hill series. But if there’s one that I have hope for is House At The End Of The Street, mainly because I’m riding the Jennifer Lawrence train at this moment. But add in some pretty creepy trailers and a little girl being the main antagonist (those always freak me out), we could possibly have a underdog winner for the fall season.
Most Anticipated Performance:Joaquin Phoenix (The Master)
This is the year where we may seem some pretty strong male performances from Daniel Day-Lewis playing Abraham Lincoln, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Hugh Jackman and others, but the one I’m most looking forward to is Joaquin Phoenix’s comeback in The Master by Paul Thomas Anderson. Early reviews have been glowing and transcending, specifically highlighting Phoenix’s performance as by far his best work. The character is dense, deep and conflicted, and it must’ve been brutal getting down all the little mannerisms, but it is very well certain that Phoenix will get nominated for an Oscar and most likely win.
