    I know it's not Ebert's list or anything, but the list is pretty intriguing. Here is what I am most interested in:

    - Dark Knight Rises, for obvious reasons
    - Hunger Games, looks very interesting
    - American Reunion (a guilty pleasure watch)
    - Django Unchained (Tarantino + Dicaprio = Gold)
    - Great Gatsby remake (with Leo)
    - This is Forty (I'm an Apatow fan)
    - Savages (I like drug movies, sue me)
    - Taken 2 (Liam Neeson is a gangster)
    - Men In Black 3 (more curious than interested; 14 years since original)
    - The Avengers (Iron Man and Captain America and The Hulk in one movie. C'mon!)
    - World War Z (love the apocalyptic-type films, plus good actors)

    "Savages" is based on a book by one of my favorite authors, Don Winslow. Not a big Oliver Stone fan, though. We'll see.

    That book was wild. Quick read if anybody likes violence and drugs. Should make for an interesting movie ... oh and Blake Lively will likely be naked.

    14 years since Men In Black ... I'm getting old and so is Will Smith.

    My top pick from that list is definitely Prometheus.....followed by Skyfall and the next Batman.

    Cannot wait for The Hunger Games. If you haven't read the series (it's by Suzanne Collins), give it a shot. I have yet to hear anyone who didn't like it.

    Really intrigued for the Great Gatsby as well.

    I'm in the same boat with you Wenders. I loved the Hunger Games books, the cast looks good for it.

    Are we sure that Vinny Chase isn't going to show up in Gatsby, right? :)

    This is crazy. My buddy and I were just talking yesterday about some of the potentially fantastic films due out in 2012. It's really set up to be a GREAT year. I'm very excited.

    The Master - Paul Thomas Anderson directing and Philip Seymour Hoffman in the lead of a film that may or may not be based on L. Ron Hubbard and the founding of Scientology? Yes, please.

    Lincoln - Spielberg, that cast and that content?! /swoons
    World War Z - it's zombies! plus great source material
    The Hobbit - prequel to epic LOTR
    The Bourne Legacy - ass kicking, shaky cameras, endless action and conspiracy
    Prometheus - Sir Ridley directing, Damon Lindelof writing, Fassbender/Theron starring, plus Alien universe
    The Dark Knight Rises - Nolan, duh
    Untitled bin Laden/Seal Team 6 flick - from the minds behind Hurt Locker

    I need to turn in my nerd card for forgetting this one. SO EXCITED. All of the promo pictures look fantastic. And, of course, nobody does Middle Earth quite like Peter Jackson.

    Plus, the Hobbit is better suited to a movie than the LOTR trilogy.

    Every generation needs reminding that 'Gatsby' can never be filmed.

    Just saw the trailer for Tarantino's new one, due Christmas, "Django Unchained." All I can say is Dec. 25 can't get here soon enough: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=rC8VJ9aeB_g
