By the end of 2005 and everyone has released their top ten (or at least the first version of it). The time has come for us to start looking forward to what we will be seeing on moviescounter this year. There are many movies to come, and to help you along the way, here is my annual (only a second time, but still) Top 10 Best Movies to Come!
1. X-Men 3
The second X-Men movie is still one of the best movies of all time on moviecounter, but the one with the missing ingredient is Bryan Singer. What I have heard so far about Brett Ratner’s ideas for the franchise did not make me enthusiastic, but the first caption trailer was cool. Let’s keep our fingers crossed, hoping Ratner will surprise us.
Adam Sandler’s movies are popular and not to be missed, but this one has a few things to do. First: Kate Beckinsale is in it. Second: So is Christopher Walken. Third: The story is very interesting, as it is about a boy who gets a remote control that allows him to move back and forth during his lifetime. Best of all, until the remote control starts to show its concept. Adam Sandler and the top concept usually work very well, so this can be really fun.
3. Zoom Return
Last year saw the successful youth film Sky High, and this year saw another new hero film on movies counter. Tim Allen plays an old hero called to action, to train a group of children’s heroes in a private school. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Sky High ain’t for me either.
4. Objective Unlikely 3
The most annoying man of 2005 (as voted by movie lovers around the world) is back in his high-profile action business. But will it be Tom Cruise’s hattrick? The first was very good, the second was disappointing, this one, directed by JJ Abrams of Lost, may return to form.
5. Marie Antoinette
The director of my favorite 2004 movie, Lost in Translation, returns to the big screen with this live-action account of Marie Antoinette, a simple Vienna girl who became Queen of France in 1774. The story of the treasure? Yes, although it is unfortunate that she became queen a few years before all French royalties were beheaded … Sophie Coppola directs Kirsten Dunst and Jason Schwartzman to this.
The film, starring Jon Heder and Jon Lovitz, tells the story of three friends. Who tried to close the missing opportunities in their childhood when they formed their own baseball team. And started playing with Little League teams. It could be Dodgeball these years.
7. Happy Feet
There are plenty of CGI animated films on moviescounter com to be released this year, but this seems to be one of the most exciting. How could it not be fun: it’s about penguins! About a group of penguins singing accuracy. Our hero penguin can’t sing, which is a problem, because this is how male penguins attract women. Fortunately, though, he may not be able to sing, but he can dance better than anyone else!
8. Miami Vice
Just reading those words will make the song of this classic tv game stay in your head all day (you don’t have to thank me). This could be a better TV remake than most, as Michael Mann directs (he is also the director of many episodes of the real series).
In case you are worried that there will not be a big show this year (King of the Rings is over, and the next Narnia that will only come out this year): be sure. The next big thing comes in the form of Eragon, another film-based film on moviescounter de. In which a child interacts with a dragon and ends up in the middle of an ancient war between dragons.
Pixar is usually a quality guarantee, but this time I’m a little more careful than usual. The caption trailer was not very hot, and the fact that Pixar delayed the movie on moviescounter online until this year also did not work well. Although, knowing Pixar, that extra time will be well spent. I would not be surprised if this one ends up reaching 5-star land.
