2010–10 Movies You Should Watch(I)

Monday, August 16th, 2010

There’s no better time than take a breath, hereâ??s the list of top ten movies to look forward to in 2010, if you like it, just open your calendar and mark down a few to catch in the new year. Hope you’ll enjoy!

 

1. ”The Wolfman” (Feb. 12). 

 

Several delayed openings have resulted in this horror remake landing atop Valentine’s Day weekend. Surly Lawrence Talbot (Benicio Del Toro) alights to England in the 1800s, where his father (Anthony Hopkins) fills him in on the family curse â?? just before Larry gets hairy following a werewolf attack. Before you can say “Maria Ouspenskaya,” the comely lass (Emily Blunt) Larry loves has to pack some Mace in her bodice when she walks the moors.It’s not fair for vampires to corner the market on romantic brooding.

 

2. ”Shutter Island” (Feb. 19).

 

Another movie shunted from 2009, but this one’s different: Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of a Dennis Lehane potboiler stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a 1950s detective investigating creepy goings-on at an island prison. Things, of course, are not as they seem. Mark Ruffalo, Jackie Earle Haley, Patricia Clarkson and Michelle Williams co-star. New York’s master filmmaker Scorsese tackles his first full-on thriller since “Cape Fear.”

 

3. ”Alice in Wonderland” (March 5).

 

The line “A perfect movie for Tim Burton” has been used so often, it almost means nothing â?? especially after such hit-or-miss projects as “Sleepy Hollow,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Sweeney Todd.” Still, it’s hard not to groove on the beautiful, weirdo synergy in Burton going through the looking glass to bring Lewis Carroll’s fantastical tale to the screen. Newcomer Mia Wasikowska is the girl who falls down the hole, Johnny Depp is the Mad Hatter and Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway are the Red and White Queens, respectively. Because images this freaky usually come with a hangover, you gonna like it.

 

4. ”Date Night” (April 9).

 

A bored, suburban married couple (Steve Carell and Tina Fey) try to feel special by having a big evening out in NYC. Then, a case of mistaken identity throws them into dangerous situations that rekindle their interest in each other. Ray Liotta is around to cause trouble; Shawn Levy (“Night at the Museum”) directs.

 

Why you’ll see it: If anyone can make a familiar comedy concept such as this seem like something wild, it’s Carell and Fey in the new decade’s first deadpan-humor-a-thon.

 

5. ”Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” (April 23).

 

After trading in his suspenders and suits for prison garb, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) serves his time and returns to New York, where he tutors another young hotshot (Shia LaBeouf) in the lies and lows of The Street. But this kid’s a risky investment, as he’s dating Gekko’s daughter (Carey Mulligan). Oliver Stone again directs. Greed may not be as good as it was in 1987, but it still makes the world go ’round.
