I know some of you will be shocked to know this, but I have never seen anything about Star Trek (not the movies, and not the tv show). I know I should be ashamed. That said, this new Star Trek movie has really spiked my interest, not only by its cast, but of course its director. And this is Star Trek, of course it has to be a Must See Movie just by principle.
Synopsis: A chronicle of the early days of James T. Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members. (Source: imdb.com)
ANGELS & DEMONS
Director: Ron Howard
Cast: Tom Hanks, Ayelet Zurer, Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgård, David Pasquesi, Cosimo Fusco
Release Date: May 15, 2009
Well, I haven’t read the book (I know, shame on me, again!), but I have heard good things about it. Plus once again the cast and director definitely makes Angels & Demons a Must See Movie in 2009 in my book.
Synopsis: Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon works to solve a murder and prevent a terrorist act against the Vatican. (Source: imdb.com)
Cast: Christian Bale, Anton Yelchin, Sam Worthington, Bryce Dallas Howard, Moon Bloodgood, Common, Helena Bonham Carter
Release Date: May 22, 2009
I thought that I had had enough of the Terminator franchise, but turns out I was wrong. All you need to do is fast forward to after judgment day and cast Christian freaking Bale as John Connor and you get a Must See Movie of 2009.
Synopsis: Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, John Connor is the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright, a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet’s operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.
THE BROTHERS BLOOM
Director: Rian Johnson
Cast: Adrien Brody, Rachel Weisz, and Mark Ruffalo
Release Date: May 29, 2009 (Note: Limited release will start on May 15, 2009)
The Brothers Bloom is a must-see movie of 2009 because it looks like my type of movie. Simple but great story and great actors, what more could I want. I just hope it lives up to my expectations.
Director: Pete Docter
Cast: Christopher Plummer, John Ratzenberger, Edward Asner, Paul Eiding, Jordan Nagai
Release Date: May 29, 2009
I haven’t heard much about Up, but doesn’t the fact that it’s a Pixar movie automatically make it a Must See Movie?
Synopsis: In this “coming of old age” story, a seventysomething hero, alongside his clueless wilderness ranger sidekick, travels the globe, fighting beasts and villains, and eating dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon. (Source: imdb.com)
