I always feel like I have no clue when movies I'm excited about are being released. So finally gaining a lick of sense, I Googled for a site of movie release dates.

Here's what I'm excited (or at least more than just "mildly interested") to see* between now and the end of the year

(would still like to see The Assassination of Jesse James...)

10/19 - Gone Baby Gone (I love Dennis Lehane's books, and this flick seems to have good buzz around it)

11/2 - American Gangster (I'm not a huge Denzel fan, but the previews got me all excited)

11/9 - No Country For Old Men (haven't read the book, but everything I've heard so far makes it sound like a "must see")

11/21 - I'm Not There (this one looks awfully interested, but early reviews make it sound like it may be just awful)

12/7 - Atonement (I may waver on this one; I'd like to read the book first, and while the trailers look swoon-worthy, it might be a snooze to sit through)

12/7 - The Golden Compass (never read the books, but this might be my big popcorn flick of the holiday season)

12/14 - Juno (I saw the trailer for it today, and had heard good things about it; it's a "must see" for me)

12/21 - Sweeney Todd (hells yeah! A musical for Christmas! Last year was Dreamgirls, this year it's Sweeney Todd!)

Also possibly interested in: Love In the Time of Cholera, I Am Legend

* I reserve the right to change my mind if the reviews out and out stink; I'm easily influenced

Oh yeah! I would like to see that - I must have missed it on the website I was looking at. Or maybe it wasn't a complete listing. There were a lot of flicks listed I'd never heard of.

Comingsoon.net, IMDb.com and AICN.com are the sites I visit for movie news.

darkhorizons.com has a very thorough release date list and trailer archive.

Of course we shouldn't forget There Will Be Blood, also due around Christmas, and the likely future #1 of the year for many film fans, I would imagine.

I saw the trailer again in the theatre today and I haven't been this excited for a film's release since Revenge of the Sith.

The only thing that rivals my current lust for "There Will Be Blood" is Cameron's "Avatar". And since Avatar is still 588 days away, I'm all about Blood right now.

That movie will probably do no wrong.

Jonny Greenwood doing the score... sweet Jesus. :xavidrool:

I'm kind of bummed out in advance because I know that regardless of how well TWBB does, Jonny's gonna have a hard time winning an Oscar for that score. The Academy, despite their often philistine tastes, can often be a pretty snobby institution when it comes to recognizing outsiders. That's why it will be difficult for someone whose name will either be unrecognized, or associcated with rock and roll. There is a precedent for this, however, as David Byrne won for the score of The Last Emperor (though he did share it with two Asian composers).

The best hope for him is that TWBB is a huge frontrunner and takes a lot of awards, picking up Original Score in the process. Considering the likely competition (Charlie Wilson's War? Are you fucking kidding me? With that trailer?) it's not too far-fetched.

If Eminem can win for the 8 Mile soundtrack, anything can happen I guess.

Michael Clayton, Elizabeth, Atonement, No Country for Old Men, and token Indie Comedy/Drama that never wins anything will probably be the frontrunners this year (Darjeeling?)

Well Original Song often goes to a popular artist. It's the Score category that's a little tougher and more exclusive.

And Eminem only won because U2's song was so awful. They were riding such a wave of popularity and goodwill, that should have been theirs for the taking, but I guess the voters couldn't live with themselves giving it to such a lackluster contribution, and picked the song that was actually memorable.

Elizabeth is getting pretty mixed reviews, and it's not easy for a sequel to contend like that. Michael Clayton is likely to get a screenplay nom and a lead actor nom for Clooney. Atonement looks like a pretty safe bet, as does No Country For Old Men, which is supposedly extremely violent, but great.

Juno is poised to be the Indie breakout but I just don't see it as a BP candidate. The screenplay categories are usually where they nominate, and actually award the daring/offbeat stuff.

I bet a lot of people said the same thing about Little Miss Sunshine last year.

Personally, I don't think it was BP quality, but hey.

Well, the difference is that LMS had a more esteemed cast (three oscar nominees travelling in that van), and also made a shitload of money. While Juno has a few recognizable faces, I think it's going to be tough for it to become as big of a breakout hit.

You never know though.
