Last year’s ‘Most Anticipated movies of 2009‘ post was a huge success here at TGTE, it brought in nearly 30,000 of the 182,200 hits on this little pet project we call a blog. The fact that TGTE has that many hits is remarkable, considering – due to work related issues – I haven’t really been able to write on here in almost 7 months, yet we continuously get a steady stream of traffic; probably because I string together wicked-awesome prose and shit.
Anyways, I’m of the opinion, much like Hollywood, that if it worked once why not remake it until people get sick of it. Which reminds me, I’ve seen a couple other ‘most anticipated’ movie posts, some by fellow bloggers, other by reputable sites, and for the most part they were fucking vomit inducing.
#11. – From Dawn till Dusk
Despite there already being a prequel to the 1996 hit From Dusk till Dawn, this will be the prequel to the prequel. With 99.9% of the film taking place in between dawn and dusk, clearly there will be little vampire screen time in this one. Unless, Hollywood decided to go with the current and ultimately retarded “sparkling” vampires from Twilight. Fugitive bank robbers and brothers Seth (George Clooney) and Richie Gecko (Quentin Tarantino) reunite to bring this prequel to life. It follows them as they commit rape, murder, steal, and cause all out chaos that leads to them fleeing the F.B.I. and Texas police which is where the original starts. Celebrity cameos include Penelope Cruz, Matt Damon, and Woody Harrleson. Continue reading
11. Cate Blanchett – Bio-hazard worker (Hot Fuzz)
I have seen this movie twice, and honest to God had no idea that was the incredible thespian Cate Blanchett behind that mask. I only realized it when doing research for this post and I apologize but I couldn’t find a clip from the movie.
Transforms into: Microscope
Perceptor is a scientist, one of the most brilliant minds the whole of Cybertron can offer. He is always looking to learn more, and his discoveries have proven invaluable time and time again. Though his specialties lie in metallurgy, electrical engineering, and other sciences closely related to Transformer physiology, his thirst for knowledge has made him kind of a scientific jack-of-all-trades.
He’s no warrior but his insight and intellect would be a nice addition to the autobot roster. Plus he’s the one who was responsible for designing and creating the Dinobots.
Gentlemen… let’s be honest. I know for a fact you’re all outstanding, hairy chested, motor oil loving manly men. But every now and then you’re forced to suck it up and take one for the team. Girls have all the vaginas and therefore have all the power and when that night comes that they decided you’ll be watching a chick flick, here are some movies that you might want to suggest. They’re guy friendly and won’t make you seem like a complete panzy sitting on the couch cuddling your girl, while she sobs over the Notebook or some other Richard Gere crap fest.
11. The Sweetest thing
Written by Nancy Pimental (the girl who replaced Jimmy Kimmel as host on Win Ben Steins money) it stars Cameron Diaz and Christina Appelgate and the always annoying and untalented Selma Blair. Pimental wrote the movie based on her relationshi with Kate Walsh.
WHY GUYS WILL LIKE IT: As far as romantic comedies go, this one is pretty guy friendly and relies primarily on crude gags as its source of humor. Including the memorable “Penis Song”, the glory hole scene and Jason Bateman and Tom Janes witty dialogue about relationship with women.
11. The McManus Brothers – Boondock Saints
Normally if you saw anyone on the street with tattoos like this, you’d probably say “nice latin tattoo douche bag.” But there is something about those tattoos being on the hands of two drunk Irish bastards holding 9MM that makes me want to say “reverendus -a -um” – that’s lating for AWESOME.
