January 7, 2010


Finally i post this. I planned to post this in the end of 2009 but i couldn't make it. Okay, this "top10" list is not the version of any media but mine. Means: This is the rank of #10 until #1 movies that i desperately want to watch in theater on 2010; not in VCD, not in DVD even not in Blu-ray! but it must be in theater!!! So.......let's get started =)

#10 Robin HoodDirected by: Ridley Scott
Starring: Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Mark Strong
Why: This is a remake of Kevin Costner's Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves (1991) and im not a big fan of that movie (or the story itself). But, when i knew the director is Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Kingdom Of Heaven, Matchstick Men, etc) and the main actor is Russel Crowe (One of my fave actor), i changed my mind. How Ridley Scott directing a movie is always amazing. He is one of my fave movie director ever and i dont want to miss his movie.

#9 Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Directed by: Mike Newell
Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, Alfred Molina
Why: Adapted from popular video games, Prince Of Persia will promise lot of adventure, action and (if u have watched the trailer) AWESOME SPECIAL EFFECTS! The director himself is the one who brought you Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire so i guess this movie will be fantastic! If you are the fans of adventure movie (who don't?), you have to watch this.

#8 Percy Jackson: The Lightning ThiefDirected by: Chris Columbus
Starring: Logan Lerman, Brandon T Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Pierce Brosnan, Uma Thurman
Why: I've posted about Percy Jackson in my previous post and like i wrote there, i always like Greek mythology and this movie will deliver it! Adapted from best selling fantasy novel, Percy Jackson can be the next Harry Potter. That's why the director of this movie is the director of Harry Potter 1&2!! Hmm...see the connection? Please do your magic touch again, Chris Columbus!

#7 Knight And DayDirected by: James Mangold
Starring: Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz
Why: If you know me, you must have known that im a big fan of this great actor!! Yes, it's Tom Cruise!! I watch almost all of his movie and i love them (almost) all!! For me, he is a great actor and i always wait for his movies. Last year, i was amazed by "Valkyrie" and this year, paired with Cameron Diaz, he will deliver an action comedy movie, "Knight And Day". Here is one of the movie funny dialog:
"Everybody get down! No one follows us or i kill myself then her.." (lol)

#6 Clash of the TitansDirected by: Louis Leterrier
Starring: Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes
Why: I've missed epic movie lately. After Troy, Kingdom of Heaven or 300, i just can't wait to see Clash of the Titans. Story of Greek mythology about Perseus, son of Zeus (half men half God) who fight to defend human from evil gods and monsters. This is an intense action movie with great special effect, setting and of course, epic battle!!

#5 Alice in the WonderlandDirected by: Tim Burton
Starring: Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway
Why: If Tim Burton directs a movie, it will be a masterpiece. He is a genius director! and i admire his talent and his taste of art. In my opinion, "Alice in the Wonderland" will not offer an ordinary adventure movie but an art movie. Look at its promo posters and trailer, they are pieces of arts! Can't wait to indulge my eyes with this art.

#4 Iron Man 2Directed by: Jon Favreau
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson, Mickey Rourke
Why: Ya..ya...ya....i know all of you have been waiting for this sequel coz me tooooooo (lol). Still with the same director, Iron Man 2 is predicted to be a protagonist in 2010 Box Office. The success of its first movie surely will attract more people to come to theater. Iron Man 2 is supported by all star actors and artists (Scarlett Johansson and Mickey Rourke in). Hopefully (please) this sequel will not follow the sequel of Transformers last year. Coz this time, the audiences are not only satisfied with bombastic special effect but also good story plot.

#3 InceptionDirected by: Christopher Nolan
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe
Why: This movie is directed by the man who brought you "Memento", "The Prestige", and The "Dark Knight" period.

July 16th...July 16th...remember jak...July 16th...

#2 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1Directed by: David Yates
Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman
Why: It comes to end. And it splits into two movies! What a gr8 marketing strategy but somehow, im thankful for that coz this final movie should (must) be perfect! So the decision to split the movie into two parts is a wise decision so the script writers can put the story as much as they can from the book into the movie. November is too long for me =( but i will learn from my experience last year when i was so (over) enthusiastic waiting the HP 6 then ended with dissapointing. Finally, i won't put this movie as #1 must see movie this year (for my own good).

#1 The Last AirbenderDirected by: M. Night Shyamalan
Starring: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Seychelle Gabriel, Dev Patel
Why: This is the champ!!!! From animation comes to live!!! Avatar (not James Cameron's) :The Legend Of Aang has been one of my fave TV show coz it's indeed a gr8 TV animation series. And like Hollywood usually do (transform a hit stuff into a movie), i thank God coz they choose the perfect director to handle this "future big franchise" movie. It's M. Night Shyamalan! my number one favourite director (He made Sixth Sense, The Signs, etc). His latest movies (Lady In The Water and The Happening) had failed but i hope this movie will be his gr8 comeback coz he deserves it. If you have ever watched the animation (and if u know me well), you will know why i put this movie in the first rank.
