December movie wishlist!

1. The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader
I already said some stuff about this a few posts ago, but Dawn Treader was arguably the best Narnia book of them all.

2. The Warrior's Way
Combining my new love of Asian films with my old love of American westerns: An Asian assassin is forced to hide in a small town in the American badlands.

3. The Tempest
This is funny, I was just thinking the other day that they would probably never make a film adaptation of The Tempest because, in my opinion, it is the weirdest of Shakespeare's plays. I mean, what the heck is Caliban's deal, anyway? But here you are. Neato.

4. Somewhere
I was ambivalent about Lost in Translation, but the synopsis of Sofia Coppola's newest film sounds so much like a Bret Easton Ellis Novel (intellectuals refer to Bret Easton Ellis). So I'll probably watch it On Demand sometime in the near future when I'm up late at night at my Mom's house...someday.

That's it for December! We'll have to wait and see how many times I actually get to go to the movies. As far as November went, I was 0 for 6.


  1. Funny, I JUST saw the trailer for the Temepest before I remembered to check your blog. The trailer was weird but I guess it's cause I've never read the play.

    Also, I agree Dawn Treader was pretty epic, but my personal favorite is probably either Prince Caspian (so dreamy! :-P) or the Magician's Nephew. Do you think they'll make a film for Magician's Nephew eventually?

  2. I read somewhere that there were only plans to make the "consecutive" stories into films, that means no Magician's Nephew and no The Horse and His Boy (my personal favorite)

    Also - Caspian is arguably even dreamier in Dawn Treader
