Films of 2006

Over at Ain't It Cool News, they've listed 80 films to watch out for in 2006, and I wanted to highlight a few that sound cool.

Black Snake Moan - a film with a nymohomaniac Christina Ricci, Samuel L. Jackson and...Justin Timberlake. And he's supposed to be blowing people away with his performance. (I'll be happy if he takes his shirt off a few times...)

Marie Antoinette - Sophia Coppola's new film has a lot to live up to in the wake of Lost in Translation, but I have faith.

Superman Returns - duh.

X3 - I'm a little nervous about Brett Ratner filling in and adding so many new faces to the franchise since Bryan Singer's departure, but God, I loved X2 and I have to believe this will be cool...and Kitty's in it, man! And look at that actress playing Psylocke. Awesome!

Grind House - Quentin Tarantino is a god. And hey, I love horror movies.

V For Vendetta - I just read the graphic novel, and Ain't It Cool News has just been hyping up the film, so I gotta give it the benefit of the doubt.

Brick - Film noir for teens. And Joseph Gordan-Levitt, who was hot and just great in Mysterious Skin.

Art School Confidential - From the Daniel Clowes short strip. Ghost World was awesome, so expectations are high here...

Fortunately, I had the opportunity to work with Samuel L. Jackson on the set of Black Snake Moan and he his performance was fantastic. I am so looking forward to the finished product.
