    Of the movies I know about, these are the movies I am most looking forward to seeing in 2002:
    The Powerpuff Girls
    Run Ronnie Run (the Mr. Show Movie)
    Kill Bill (Quentin Tarrantino)
    Punchdrunk Knuckle Love (Paul Thomas Anderson)
    Panic Room (David Fincher)
    Star Wars: Episode II
    Gangs of New York (Martin Scorcese)
    The Time Machine
    Slackers
    Scooby Doo (it'll suck, but as a Buffy fan, I'll have to see it).
    The next two are filming but may be out before the end of the year.
    Confessions of a Dangerous Mind Chuck Barris biopick
    The Truth About Charlie remake of Charade
    I'd put The Matrix Reloaded on the list, but I think it comes out in 2003, as will the sequel to The Professional.

    undoubtedly LOTR: the twin towers

    the Time Machine previews looked really cheesy, as did Spider-man

    I don't get out to the movies very often. In the past year, the only movie I saw at the theater was FOTR. The year before that, I saw only the Patriot (though, I saw it a few times). So, this year, I only have one absolutely-will-be-there movie: Attack of the Clones. Here are others I might see:
    • We Were Soldiers
    • Spider-Man (love the character, haven't cared much for the trailers; will wait for final trailer to decide)
    • Signs
    • X-Men 2 (though, I think that might be 2003)
    • Star Trek X (same as X-Men 2)

    There certainly seems to be no shortage of big films in 2002. Aside from my most anticipated movie, Attack of the Clones, I'm really looking forward to two smaller films--Gangs of New York and Panic Room. Martin Scorsese is my absolute favorite director and David Fincher is certainly up there, too. The trailers for both of their films look great. It's a shame that Scorsese's movie got pushed back again. What is it with Miramax? Don't they have any faith in the film?
    I was really excited for Spider-Man, but after seeing the less-than-steller trailer, I don't just don't have high hopes for it. Toby Maguire is very monotone and the effects look weak. I trust Sam Raimi, as he is a very good director, I only hope that the story was a well-written one. David Koepp has an uneven track record in the many movies he has written. He is either really good or really bad. Don't misunderstand, I'm going to see this film on opening weekend and I'll probably love it. It's just that the trailer doesn't have me as excited as I would like to be.

    I enjoyed the trailer, but you're right. Toby Mcguire did not look very good in the trailer.

    There is something about Tobey Maguire. I don't have anything against him and I don't find him to be a bad actor, but he just seems to be monotone in his delivery sometimes. I really liked him in Pleasantville and Wonderboys but I didn't find him very good in some of the other roles. I always had a difficult time envisioning him as Peter Parker. I suppose it's similar to the way many people felt when Michael Keaton as cast as Batman/Bruce Wayne. Keaton being cast in those roles turned out to be great. I'm hoping the same is true with Tobey as Spidey/Peter Parker.

    How can you not like Tobey Maguire as Spiderman?

    He is perfect for the role...Nerdy, loser type material...yes he is Monotone, but name me ONE Nerdy kid that isn't? If Peter parker was NOT bitten by the Spider I can see him as Ben Stein(The Science Teacher) on The Wonder Years...

    I think peopel forget that Peter Parker is a Nerd, he is not cool, he has no self confidence...This is the type of role that suits Tobey Maguire...

    AS for my movies...

    Spiderman

    Attack of the Clowns(Yeah NSYNC has a bit part, so why not Bozo?)

    Blackhawk Down(I know it was released last year but since I dont live in LA or NYC It's released this year to me.)
