2006 Movies

I didn't see many movies that came out in 2005, and it will be sometime before I get to see movies that are coming out in 2006. Still, I'm excited about some of the big movies I've heard about.
Here are a few that I will most likely see at some time or another:

Cars - The latest from Pixar.

The DaVinci Code - I've never read the book and have only the vaguest notion of what it is about, but I figure with Ron Howard directing and Tom Hanks starring you can't go wrong.

Mission Impossible III - I own the first two on video tape. Tom Cruise may be kind of loopy in his personal life these days, but he is still an excellent actor.

Casino Royale - The latest James Bond movie with the new blonde guy in the starring role after they cast off Pierce Brosnan.

Superman Returns - Will this be in the same league with Spider Man and Batman (or the X-Men) Or will it miss the boat and end up in the drink with the likes of The Hulk and Daredevil?

Sicko - The latest by Michael Moore which turns out to be a documentary that goes after the health care industry.

Apocalypto - The lastest from Mel "Passion of the Christ" Gibson.

(Untitled 9-11 movie) by Oliver Stone and starring Nicolas Cage as one of the New York cops who survived the collapse of the first Trade Tower.

Pirates of the Caribbean II - No surprise that they made a sequel here (I understand they have already started a third as well) and it looks like the original cast is all on board.

Of course, there are still a lot of 2005 movies I have yet to see that I want to:

King Kong
Walk the Line
Good Night, Good Luck
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
The Producers
The New World
Chronicles of Narnia
Constant Gardener
History of Violence
Fantastic Four
War of the Worlds
Cinderella Man
Corpse Bride
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Wererabbit
Chicken Little
The Interpreter
