The Top 5 movies I want to see in 2009

Here’s my pick of movies I’m most looking forward to this year. The general theme for me is that they’re films likely to be really bad, but I hope against hope out of fan-boy optimistism that they will be awesomeness.

5. Terminator Salvation

While I’m naturally skeptical of any James Cameron-less Terminator movie, the trailer looks cool and I’d like to see the actual war against the machines.

4. Watchmen

I really liked the graphic novel, so I’m interested to see how it’s converted onto the big screen.

3. X-Men Origins: Wolverine

With superheroes being hot property in Hollywood, this was the inevitable spin-off from the X-Men franchise, especially after Ratner effectively killed X-Men.

2. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

The first movie was rad, so I expect this will be radness x2. Nothing more needs to be said, can’t wait.

1. Star Trek

I acknowledge that my excitement for this is a result of massive optimism. I want so much for Star Trek to no longer suck, and the nostalgia factor for me is strong. I have lots of reservations about it, but I want it to be good, and that’s why I can’t wait to see.
