I'll probably be checking out 1408 this weekend, since I've seen ALL the Stephen King movies, including Maximum Overdrive.

Other movies I'll most definitely be checking out is the new Harry Potter, the Bourne Ultimatum, the Ten, the Kingdom, and 3:10 to Yuma. I <3 westerns. Also Transformers and Live Free or Die Hard.

A movie I'll be forced to watch will be Rush Hour 3...

How about you all? Is there anything you’re looking forward to seeing, or dreading to see?

I'm excited about seeing Harry Potter.

I'm sorry but this thread is destined to be a "Talk about Maximum Overdrive" thread. Remember when that coke machine killed that guy? Too fucking awesome!!!

...the Bourne Ultimatum.
Didn't know that was hitting this summer. They finally wrapping that up? Hopefully it makes more sense then the second movie did... I mean, I was able to keep up with what was going on, but if the third movie is anything like the second, you'll need to have seen the first two for it to make any sense whatsoever. Like just seen them. Right before you walk into the theater.

All I really remember is that huge Green Goblin truck.

Bourne Ultimatum drops August 3rd. I'm going to have to rewatch the other ones, but did Bourne shoot anyone in the second movie? Or were all the fight scenes chop-socky?

I honestly don't remember. Much of anything about it really. I just remember lots of flashback scenes with Chris Cooper.

I want to see The Dark Knight. Badly.

Have to wait more than a year, though. :(

Black Snake Moan
Transformers
Harry Potter 5
Evan Almighty (if the reviews are good)

I've got my ticket for Transformers on July 2 @ 8PM.

Otherwise, nothing else.

I'm super excited about Ratatouille. Other than that, I want to see 1408. It's recieved some good reviews, and I really like John Cusack for some reason. Sicko and Death at a Funeral don't look too shabby either.

Schmidt

Oooh, I forgot Superbad. I'm going to see that just for Michael "Mr. Manager" Cera.

Looking forward to Ratatouille, Bourn Ultimatum, Harry Potter 5, and Golden Compass.

Yeah, 1408 is a short story that King wrote, and from the looks of the trailer, the movie's going to have so much more jump scares than the story. 100% more, since the short story didn't have any. SPOILER: The room is haunted.

Yes, also would like to see Superbad. The red band trailer is awesome. And sometime next year, the Mist is coming out. Another short story by King, this film is being made by Frank Darabont. Stephen King + Frank Darabont = Movie Magic.

Figure Four

Superbad and Ratatouille are definitely at the top of my list.

I'm also really interested in seeing the new Coen brothers movie, No Country For Old Men. (http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoID=2036658967) Though I don't think that's coming out this summer.

Also: King of Kong. (http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1809834006/video/3053794/)

Our small-town theater is getting Knocked Up a few weeks late, and I'm taking my dad to see it as a belated Father's Day gift. After that:

Transformers
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Live Free or Die Hard
Iron Man
The Incredible Hulk
The Dark Knight
The Brave One
I Am Legend
The Golden Compass
Ratatouille
Wall-E

The there's the new adaptation of Stephen King's IT that is apparently coming to the Sci-Fi channel (and will hopefully stick to the book's plot, though they can keep the child porno out of it if they need to), and Warren Ellis's straight to DVD Castlevania III animated movie. I think that's it so far for the next couple of years, but I'm probably forgetting something.

But the pre-tween gang bang scene was so integral to the plot! Or something.

I thought the original miniseries was pretty good; why doesn't Sci-Fi try one of his other works?

If it weren't for Tim Curry, the original miniseries would have been unwatchable for me. They're welcome to try as many times as they like until they get it right.

1408, Transformers, and I Am Legend.

The Mist looks awesome, too.

The only thing with Stephen King's name on it that I've seen all the way through is the stinkin' Langoliers. Because badly rendered, jaggy-teethed pac-mans are scary!

No, wait... I saw The Green Mile. That was pretty good. Never mind.

I also manage to see the last hour or so of Storm of the Century at least once or twice a year. I don't even have to try, I'll walk into a room and there it is. To this day I don't know that actor's name, but whenever I see him in anything (and I always recognize him) I always say "Just give him what he wants and he'll go away."

But the Langoliers had Bronson Pinchot! TV's Balki!

Colm Feore. And knowing is half the battle.

What about Shawshank Redemption? That was a King short story.

Nope. Most everyone else I've known has seen it, but I've yet to. A lot of people are surprised by this.

Probably because it's on TV so frequently nowadays that it's hard to miss. You should check it out sometime though. It's a really good film.

Definitely:

Superbad
Live Free or Die Hard
Sicko

With Ambivalence:

Transformers (Because I can't really have any faith in anything Michael Bay does)
The Simpsons (I sincerely hope this is good)
1408 (I've heard a little bit about it but seen nothing)
Ocean's Thirteen (Less Twelve, more Eleven hopefully?)

Incidentally, I saw Fantastic Fortytwo today, and... wow, it was bad. I didn't see the first one, but... wow.

Well, scratch that one off my list.

I don't really see many movies, but I am excited about a couple.

Harry Potter - I just saw a trailer for it, and now I'm super-psyched. I don't see how this one could go wrong, considering the quality of the others.

Ratatouille - Pixar movies are both beautiful and fun. Plus, it's about food! I love food (and I assume most everyone else does, too)! Ratatouille make ridiculous amounts of money in the box office, no matter what.

Edit: Now I'm even more excited about Ratatouille thanks to Schmidt's comment. My comments on it have been slightly altered to represent that.

Ratatouille isn't just Pixar, it's a Brad Bird Pixar film. Which means it has every chance of being more excellent than Pixar's earlier stuff.

What about Shawshank Redemption? That was a King short story.

Pretty much everything out of Different Seasons is a great read; Shawshank especially. Torgo, the film Stand by Me (based on the story "The Body") falls into this category as well, which is a wonderful film for everyone who isn't 8 and hasn't seen a dead body referenced in a movie before.

Apt Pupil was an incredible story, and every time I think about it, I wish to myself that all the original prints of the film are lost and they have to declare a do-over or something.

This year: Ratatouille!

Next year: The Dark Knight!

...That's about it.
