I'm beginning to worry about the impact of this year's movie schedule on my income. I'm resigned to seeing The Hunger Games (anybody going this week?). Prometheus looks gnarly as fuck. The Dark Knight Rises is going to be stellar, obviously. I'll see The Avengers and Spider-Man whether they're good or not.* And K. Stew has me booked for THREE fucking movies this year (On The Road, Snow White, and Breaking Dawn Dos). I am in, girl. I am in. Plus my local arthouse theater does a summer-long festival of last year's arty flicks, and I'll have to see a few of those to feel like I am really doing right by this city, you know? I should get a second job again. On the bright side, at least any lingering allegiance to Ashley Greene won't cost me much this year. Unless that thing about the gender-swapped Oliver Twist is still going to happen.
(*Last year film critics complained about a backloaded 2011--every Oscar candidate came out in like, the last week of December, which killed Dragon Tattoo and a few others. Is this the back end of that scheduling? The over-blockbustered Summer of 2012?)
What about y'all? Any super-anticipated movies? Not that I want to be on the hook for more. I mean, I DO, but not really.
