‘Tis the time of the year where the good movies are starting to open in wide release for Oscars season next year. Here are some of my anticipated movies:
1. Quantum of Solace. This latest Bond film will be character-driven, and will focus more on the love lost of Mr Bond. I have deep respect for the director, Marc Forster (The Kite Runner, Finding Neverland, Monster’s Ball).
2. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. When I first saw the trailer, I was reminded of the book Time Traveller’s Wife, though, that book also will have its own movie adaptation. This movie stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, and a love story against all odds. Can’t wait for this one.
3. The Soloist. I love movies with underdogs on it, and how they survive and won the battle called life. The trailer looks promising. Based on a true story.
4. Valkyrie. Long overdue.
