Upcoming Films: What Looks Good?

The Goods: Live Hard. Sell Hard.

I haven't seen much promotion for this movie, but it looks HILARIOUS to me! I'm surprised there wasn't a trailer for it before Funny People since it involves many of the same people who have worked with Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen? Well, while it has the same crowd, it definitely appeals to different humors since Funny People was more serious than the joke-a-minute, laugh-out-loud pace that The Goods seems to have.

I just saw Step Brothers and that was so funny, really stupid and just too much at times, but for the most part it was funny. So that bodes well for this film. Check out the trailer:

The Killing Room

This movie isn't coming out in theaters, since it didn't get a distribution deal for the U.S., so if you want to watch it you'll have to rent it. I just heard about this thanks to a blogpost over at Entertainment Weekly.

Movies that go straight to DVD always make me question their quality. Because, if they aren't good enough to get released, why should I watch it? I know this thinking is flawed, but I can't help feeling suspicious of straight-to-DVD films. However, this trailer is chilling!

Good Hair

This Chris Rock docu-comedy highlights a multi-million dollar industry and makes it not only interesting, but makes you laugh! Just heard about this movie this morning:

Other movies I'm looking forward to, that I'm sure you've all seen trailers/marketing for:

G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra

I know this movie is getting a lot of flack about a lackluster storyline, but I still want to see it in theaters because the special effects look awesome! Those bombs that destroy The Eiffel Tower? Striking! If for no other reason that the special effects, I feel this is a movie that should be seen on the big screen. Plus, Channing Tatum is easy on the eyes. ;)

District 9

This movie looks like it is the blend of good special effects, good story telling, and a meaningful message. It has had a unique marketing campaign for a while now that has gotten people's interest piqued. It took me a while to figure out what those "HUMAN'S ONLY BUS STOP" stuff was for, but once I did I was intrigued. Coming out August 14, I know I'll be seeing it soon after.

Are you guys looking forward to any of these movies? Is there something I didn't mention that you're really excited for?
