The near future and its gifts

I feel like sharing my thoughts on which films of 2010 I am most looking forward to.


It's a film about... I have no idea. I think no one does. Christopher Nolan (the director and screenwriter) doesn't want us to know much about it. Something about a plan that might change the Earth. The trailer is promising and the cast is pretty impressive with DiCaprio and Cotillard leading the film.

Never Let Me Go

Based on a book that I enjoyed. Carey Mulligan and Keira Knightley together! What do I hear? Excitement? I knew it! The plot: They're in a "special" school (no, they're not mentally retarted) and there is a boy. You don't need more than that. Actually, what I described didn't help you at all. Trust me!

Alice In Wonderland

Do I have to say much? The interesting thing is that I'm not excited about any element of the movie in particular, but about the combination. Please, Mrs Nice Movie, don't disappoint me!


It's actually the famous Rapunzel story but for some reason they renamed it and it will be in 3D. Hey, I love a good animated movie. This one is supposed to have some originality to the animation. From what I've seen, it works perfectly. Let's hope the script is on the same level.

The Kids Are All Right

Annette Bening and Julianne Moore are a couple! That's interesting by itself but the film also has many critics backing it. It premiered at the Sundance Festival. Once again I will not write anything more about the plot. If you are not drooling by now, nothing I say will make a difference.

Blue Valentine

Depressing story about a couple (Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams) that is having some problems. Also from Sundance. Also supposedly very good. I really like these two guys.

We Need To Talk About Kevin

Based on a book that focuses on a mother who writes a letter to her ex husband regarding her late son's actions. Actions? What actions? Nothing too grave. He killed some students as well as himself. Yeap, it's strong stuff. And Tilda Swinton is in it. (The mother, in case you hadn't guessed)
