So I’ve been wondering what my next blog post should be about and I decided that it should be about the films that I’m looking forward to this year.
First of all we have ‘300’. It’s based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller (who also wrote/drew Sin City) which is loosely based on the Battle of Thermopylae (480 BC). In this battle 300 Spartans, 400 Thebans and 700 Thespians held off the entire Persian army (between 60,000 and 120,000), causing severe losses to the Persians. The stuff of legends! (well it is now anyway.)
Next we have Transformers. Robots in Disguise! Now, Transformers is one of those things that if you were a boy growing up in the 80s you loved. I remember well, watching the cartoons, loving the ideas of big robots blowing stuff up that could then change into vehicles. In fact I have a secret to admit that I own the whole first series of the cartoon on DVD along with the animated movie…. I’m not really that sad – honest! This film looks like it deviates from the original toys quite a bit in design, but I’m hoping it is something special.
Last for now is Spiderman 3. Not much to say, other than initial looks make it look as good as the first two. Should be good!
I’ve noticed that this post only shows films with lots of action. When I hear about some other ‘quieter’ films that catch my eye that are coming out this year, I’ll be sure to post about them.
