I'm not usually a big movie person. I like watching movies, but I don't go out of my way to watch them when they come out in the theater. But there are a few movies coming out soon that I'd like to watch.
Julie and Julia - This movie just looks like so much fun to me. Julie Powell tries to cook her way through Julia Childs' cookbook, a recipe a day. Nora Ephron, who I love, adapted the screenplay from Julia Childs' autobiography, and Julie Powell's memoirs. It stars Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. What's not to love?
The Time Traveler's Wife - I had never even heard of this movie until last week when I decided that I wanted to check out the book. A couple of days ago, I headed to the bookstore and read the first 10 pages of the book and was hooked. I had to take a break from reading because of the blogathon, but I can't wait to finish it. I'm curious to see what the movie will be like since book-to-movie adaptations are so hit or miss.
Alice in Wonderland - Okay, so this is kind of cheating because this movie doesn't come out until next spring, but HELLO! Starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Anne Hathaway, directed by Tim Burton. Um. Why wouldn't I be excited about this?! And now there's a trailer available!
