Timed Out

Thursday May 13th 2010

This week’s Time Out magazine has a big feature on ‘Summer Movies’. I was asked, along with a bunch of other people, to write 40 words about the movies I was most and least looking forward to this summer. They didn’t put them in in the end (probably because they’re a bit crap) but I can’t bear the thought of wasting any writing, so here they are for your reading pleasure…

I am most looking forward to…

After two years of seemingly candid blogs, tweets and photo updates from Sir Edgar of Wright, it’s amazing how little we actually know about his comic book opus. One thing we can say for certain: it’s going to be amazing.

I am least looking forward to…

A Harley Davidson and a new haircut won’t cut it for Tom Cruise’s midlife crisis. Instead, he’s made a $100 million action movie in which he gets to wear cool shades, smile smugly and pretend to be 21 again.

Reading them back, I’m actually quite surprised they weren’t MOR good enough for inclusion.
