I love the end of the year in movies. All the top 10 lists, the best of the year, the worst of the year. And especially the movies that are nominated for awards – Ny Film Critics, LA Film Critics, Golden Globes, Oscars…
But as much as I love the movies, I’d love to see not so much sequels and prequels as mash-ups – movies that are made, like music mash-ups, of 2 or more movies mashed together to make one new movie.
The Dark Knight Vicky Cristina Barcelona – Tag line - a 3 way we’d all like to see.
Milk The Wrestler – the story of America’s first openly gay WWE wrestler. Tag line – He pinned his opponents inside the ring and married them outside. Except in California.
Frost/Nixon Burn After Reading – Tag line – Burn After Taping is More Like it.
Milk Man on Wire – A gay French aerialist tightropes across the twin towers – just to deliver the milk.
Mamma Mia Defiance – Russian Jews fight back against the Nazi war machine, all to bouncy sing-along ABBA hits.
The Dark Knight Happy-Go-Lucky – A new Batman, now on Prozac.
Rachel Getting Married 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days – a lot can happen before Rachel gets married.
