While it will be difficult to top last year's line-up of films, 2013 is sure to have solid films and hopefully some great ones. Here part 1 of a preview featuring films that I have some interest in order of when they are going to be released. While I have a general rule not to judge a movie by its trailer or even watch trailers, that is the only way a film can be judged until it is released.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
Never have had an interest in the original story but Jeremy Renner is great and it could have some good action. However, it appears that it will be mediocre at best, probably will be full of cliches and corny effect.
A Good Day to Die Hard (5)
Although every other Die Hard sequel has been sub-par and completely over-the-top, maybe A Good Day to Die Hard can break that trend. Either way, it is sure to have awesome action scenes and Bruce Willis doing what he does best. Also be sure to look for some Die Hard reviews leading up to the release of the film.
Oz: The Great and Powerful
I have not actually seen the Wizard of Oz movie, however I have seen the mini series "Tin Man", which was entertaining. Considering that it is directed by Sam Raimi, who directed the original Spider-Man trilogy, it should be fun. The trailer makes me interested to watch the original Oz movie. Also the choice to obviously film the beginning of the movie in black and white like the original Oz is a bold idea.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation
Originally G.I. Joe Retaliation was set to be released last year, after the decision to post-convert it to 3D and re-film some of the movie from the audience reaction in the screenings last year. At least they are trying to make a decent movie, it will be difficult to top the terribleness of the first G.I. Joe movie. Sure this is going to be a dumb action movie, maybe it can at least be a fun dumb action movie.
Jack the Giant Slayer
The facts that Ewan McGregor will be in the movie and X-Men director by Bryan Singer seems like a good combo but this looks excruciatingly corny, similar to the awful Three Musketeers movie. However, it could be a decent movie, you never know.
Jurassic Park 3D
Yet another 3D re-release, this time of Steve Spielberg's classic groundbreaking action thriller Jurassic Park. I still do not understand why people want to watch old movies in 3-D when you could buy it on DVD/Blu-Ray for the same price as the theater ticket. Unless it is your favorite movie ever made, like Empire Strikes Back. I wouldn't even consider watching the Lord of the Rings in 3-D since I have already seen in theaters when they were originally released.
What are your thoughts on the up-coming movies in 2013? Please comment below and check back tomorrow part 2. Also an update on the video Q&A, we filmed it yesterday and all we need know is a lot of editing.
