1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (December 14) – Just in time–I’ve been having Middle Earth withdrawal. I will miss Aragorn, though.

2. The Hunger Games (March 23) – Read the book(s) first, but don’t miss the movie.

3. The Dark Knight Rises (July 20) – Ann Hathaway as Cat Woman? I’m not feeling it, but I’m willing to keep an open mind.

4. John Carter (March 9) – the only question here is: 3D or IMAX? (Even though do you think they reused the arena from Star Wars Episode 2?)

5. Wrath of the Titans (March 30) – clash, wrath, whatever. “You will learn someday that being half human makes you stronger than a god.” Feel the wrath.

6. Brave (June 22) – Disney/Pixar’s latest offering. Can it be better than Tangled?

7. Snow White & the Huntsman (June 1) – We are giving Kristen Stewart one last chance to show us she can actually act….

8. MIB3 (May 25) – Just in time for Sara’s birthday! 🙂 (if you don’t know what MIB stands for you won’t like the movie, so never mind.)

9. Marvel’s The Avengers (May 4) – The title does not exactly roll off one’s tongue, but Ironman, Captain America & Thor all in one movie? Can’t wait!

10. The Secret World of Arrietty (February 17) – looks like a movie version of the book, The Borrowers (which I can’t stand), but still–it is produced by Toshio Suzuki who made Howl’s Moving Castle, Spirited Away, and Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, so it qualifies as a must-see.

11. Prometheus (June 8)- it’s just another Ridley Scott Alien movie, but who cares?

12. GI Joe: Retaliation (June 29)- The Rock PLUS Bruce Willis!

13. The Amazing Spiderman (July 3) – yay…we get to see Emma Stone again.

14. Skyfall (November 9) – The next James Bond movie! (No trailer yet.)

15. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (February 17) – my children have categorically refused to see this with me because they say it will be really terrible. Strangely, they do not want to see flaming pee. My husband wants to see it though. Which is why he is my true soul mate.
