Help Me Watch More Movies

I’m in the process of putting together a list of movies that I want to see but have never got around to watching. My aim is that when I’m walking around the video shop I’ll know what to target. So what should be on my list?

I’m looking for movies in any genre and from any decade. I’m especially interested in those movies that either get a limited cinema release or go straight to DVD that are under appreciated gems. Cult movies are warmly received.

If it’s a big budget blockbuster from the last ten years or so, you can go ahead and assume I’ve either seen it or have chosen not to see it. I watch a lot of movies, but there are far more movies out there that I haven’t seen.

As an indication of taste, some of my favourite movies include (in no particular order):

  • The Crow
  • Fight Club
  • Josie and the Pussycats
  • Donnie Darko
  • Almost Famous
  • The Matrix
  • X-Men 2
  • Warriors
  • Waiting

There’s gotta be a stack more on my favourites list, but that’s just off the top of my head.

So what should I add to my list? What’s on your must see list?

Coming Soon

The big movie season is nearing it’s end for 2009. I managed to see quite a few and missed some others. For a change, I don’t think I regret missing any of the movies I missed.

But now my eyes turn towards the rest of 2009. What’s coming up for the rest of the year that I’m interested in seeing?

  • GI Joe – Out Now (Will see it if I get a chance, but not that fussed)
  • Coraline – Out Now (I want to see this, especially in 3d)
  • Taking Woodstock – 13 Aug
  • Inglourious Basterds – 20 Aug
  • Shorts – 3 Sep
  • Up – 3 Sep (Still don’t understand why we get this one so much later than the USA)
  • Funny People – 10 Sep
  • The Surrogates – 8 Oct
  • Astro Boy – 22 Oct
  • Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus – 29 Oct
  • Where The Wild Things Are – 3 Dec
  • Avatar – 17 Dec
  • Sherlock Holmes – 26 Dec

Is there anything that you think should be on my list that isn’t? What movies are you excited about for the rest of 2009?
