1. Howl (2010)
James Franco (such an amazing actor, and funny as hell!)
+
Allen Ginsberg (whom i dont know alot about, but intend to learn about by watching this movie ;))

The Listal and general ratings of this movie, coupled with one of this generations great actors (Franco) makes this on top of my "have to watch list"!


James Franco stars as the young Allen Ginsberg - poet, counter-culture adventurer and chronicler of the Beat Generation. In his famously confessional, leave-nothing-out style, Ginsberg recounts the road trips, love affairs and search for personal liberation that led to the most timeless and electrifying work of his career, the poem HOWL.

Meanwhile, in a San Francisco courtroom, HOWL is on trial. Prosecutor Ralph McIntosh (Strathairn) sets out to prove that the book should be banned, while suave defense attorney Jake Ehrlich (Hamm) argues fervently for freedom of speech and creative expression.

2. I Saw the Devil (2010)
Story:

Kyung-chul is a dangerous psychopath who kills for pleasure. He has committed infernal serial murders in diabolic ways that one cannot even imagine and his victims range from young women to even children. The police have chased him for a long time, but were unable to catch him. One day, Joo-yeon, daughter of a retired police chief becomes his prey and is found dead in a horrific state.

Her fiance Dae-hoon, a top secret agent, decides to track down the murderer himself. He promises himself that he will do everything in his power to take bloody vengeance against the killer, even if it means that he must become a monster himself to get this monstrous and inhumane killer.


Also, this!:

One of the most hyped films of the year thanks to its pairing of actors Lee Byung-hyun (A Bittersweet Life, The Good The Bad And The Weird, GI Joe) and Choi Min-Sik (Oldboy) with the director of A Tale Of Two Sisters ( Ji-woon Kim)...


I like these two actors alot and "a tale of two sisters" wasnt exactly bad. Also, this movie seems to be violent as hell, weeeeeeee!

3. Searching for the Elephant (2009)

Review:
...Searching for the Elephant does make for delightfully immoral fun, and should be enjoyed by open minded viewers. Filled with excesses both in terms of its male leads' sexual antics and director Jung's cinematic techniques, it stands as a bold and quite unique outing, with a distinctive, if often inexplicable character of its own.


Plot (taken from review above)

The plot revolves around three men who were childhood friends, a neurotic photographer (played by Jang Hyuk, Rabbit and Lizard), a top plastic surgeon (Cho Dong Hyuk, I Hate You, but It's Fine), and a shady financial consultant (Lee Sang Woo, The Road Home). Each of them are embroiled in their own personal problems, most of which involve the many women in their lives, money troubles, addiction in its various forms, and other assorted flavours of existential angst. Things inevitably start getting worse, and their friendships are put to the test when they become involved with each others' affairs and women, leading to tragic and strangely ironic consequences.


Seems like a good korean flick, what more is there to say :)

4. Rubber (2010)
A story about Robert, a killer tire with feelings


A movie by Mr Oizo which happens to be about a murdering tire? Sold. This caught my eye quite some time ago, it seems to be making its rounds in horror festivals.

5. Confessions (2010)
Middle school teacher Yoko Moriguchi's (Takako Matsu) life comes crashing down after the murder of her 4 year old daughter. Eventually Yoko Moriguchi suspects some of her own students to have been responsible for her daughter's death. An elaborate plan for revenge then ensues, including forcing students to drink HIV tainted milk ...

Based on Kanae Minato's 2008 best selling novel "Kokuhaku" (has sold 700,000+ copies to date).

6. Cyrus (2010)
Jonah Hill is usually a whole lot of fun, John C. Reilly... I feel that he can make more mature, fun movies then he has in the past (some are good some are... fart jokes), so i have high hopes for him!

That being said, this movie seems like a cookiecutter rom-com, so im hoping for less rom and more com ;).

With John’s (John C. Reilly) social life at a standstill and his ex-wife about to get remarried, a down on his luck divorcee finally meets the woman of his dreams, only to discover she has another man in her life – her son. Written and directed by Jay and Mark Duplass, the iconoclastic filmmaking team behind Sundance Film Festival favorite THE PUFFY CHAIR, CYRUS takes an insightful and funny look at love and family in contemporary Los Angeles.

8. Pinoy Sunday (2009)
I think this is a pretty good quote about why this movie might be a fun ride:

For exploring the multicultural space of modern Taipei through relationships,

/Jury, Industry Award for Narrative Feature from Taipei International Film Festival (Winner)


Comedy about two guys, finding a couch and transporting it trough the city of Taipei.

9. Cemetery Junction (2010)
I have faith in Ricky Gervais as a writer, and sometimes even as an actor. Either way, he knows his comedy, and i think this will deliver!

11. This Is England '86 (2010)
I did like the original, but i wasnt to sure about this one when i first heard about it. But, it seems to retain some of its original cast and the public seems to like it :)

18. 6 Souls (2010)
I know... Julianne Moore in a psychological thriller where she is a psychiatrist, that's original.

However!

The directors have made some good/interesting movies in the past, and it does seem like a good suspense movie. It has potential, 's all im sayin...

20. Draquila - L'Italia che trema (2010)
Sabina Guzzanti has proved good at shining the light on Berlusconi (a truly corrupt politician/human if i saw one...) in the past, and i think she will do a good job in this documentary as well!

21. Monsters (2010)
Already seen this aswell, pretty decent thriller/drama with a nice giant-monster twist. A definitive Cloverfield air around it.
