If you’ve been here before, you know I’m always quick to “rave” about upcoming movies I’m excited about.
Movies this summer seemed a little lagging to me. There were movies that I was super stoked to see such as Inception (which rocked my face off), and Despicable Me which was absolutely adorable. But, there were also movies that I had higher hopes for such as The Expendables (which was good for what it was), and The Other Guys, which, was terrible. LOL.
BUT things are looking brighter for the fall! Not only will there be great series starting up such as Dexter and Glee, but the movies bring me much excitement!
Lets get it crackin’ shall we?
Up first, a movie I am itching to see! I think Rachel and I will have to go see this one together because I don’t know anyone else who will appreciate this one nearly as much as I do.
Burlesque – November 24th, 2010
It’s called Burlesque and it’s starring Christina Aguilara and Cher! If you know Rachel and I, you’d know that we are big fans of all things Burlesque and have taken trips to see the Suicide Girls Burlesque whenever they visit Missouri, so this is right up our alley!
From watching the trailer, it would seem this is a cookie cut plot… Small town girl, visits the bustling city and see’s a big new world. What better name to give this small town girl then Ali, short for Alice. That is Aguilara’s character. Take a look at the trailer.
Black Swan (2010)
Black Swan starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis looks crazy. Not crazy bad… but crazy like a drug trip, at least that is what I felt from the trailer. It still looks good, like an evil mix between Center Stage and Swim Fan. LOL. What do you think?
The Fighter – December
And because I am a Cage Fight girl (Go Team Ambition!), I am biting my nails to see The Fighter, starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, and Amy Adams. Now, this is a strictly boxing movie, no MMA, but the love of boxing brought me my love of MMA. Total connection. LOL.
Anyway, I love Mark Wahlberg with the exception of his role in The Happening, that poor movie was the pits. When I saw the trailer for The Fighter, It took me a minute to realize that was Christian Bale, he’s such a method actor. Anyway, I think it will be a good movie. I’ll probably pack up the fight team to go with me. They’ve all got what we call “A bad case of the punchies” lol. Here’s the trailer.
For Colored Girls.
I think it’s kinda strange the movies Tyler Perry keeps putting out. I think it’s strange that all of them start out with black women being mistreated but they group together and overcome the stereotypical bad black man that is killing their self-esteem. Whats even stranger is the fact that I know this about his films and yet I continue to watch them. LOL. Maybe because his movies seem to be the only ones that showcase black actresses and even though these women start out weak, they end strong! Even though I watch these and yell at the screen I’m always grateful, because these movies could never be my life.
I apologize for the rant, let me get back to the rave.
This movie is a star-studded cast, much like every other Tyler Perry movie. If you like to yell at the screen like I obviously do…. Take a look, but don’t blame me if you don’t like it. With this cast… There isn’t a doubt in my mind that the soundtrack will make you cry, empower you, and move you! I got goosebumps just listening to the trailer.
Alrighty… This concludes my fall movie list. These are just today’s. Maybe as I hear of new ones, I’ll post again. LOL.
…Until next time…
