Seven movies I really really really really want to see! (eight if you count one of 'em as two)

Pans Labyrinth

Directed by
Guillermo del Toro

Writing credits

"Pan's Labyrinth" is the story of a young girl that travels with her mother and adoptive father to a rural area up North in Spain, 1944. After Franco´s victory. The girl lives in an imaginary world of her own creation and faces the real world with much chagrin. Post-war Fascist repression is at its height in rural Spain and the girl must come to terms with that through a fable of her own.

I'm a fan of Guillermo del Toros earlier movies and this looks spectacular!

From the time that they first met as young magicians on the rise, Robert Angier (HUGH JACKMAN) and Alfred Borden (CHRISTIAN BALE) were competitors.

Full of twists and turns, THE PRESTIGE is set against the backdrop of turn-of-the-century London, the exceptional cast includes two-time Oscar winner Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson and David Bowie.

I'm a big fan of Requiem For A Dream by Aronofsky, and this sounds really interesting. And boy is that poster pretty!

Idiocracy

Directed by
Mike Judge

Writing credits
Mike Judge

Joe Bauer, an Army librarian, is judged to be absolutely average in every regard, has no relatives, has no future, so he's chosen to be one of the two test subjects in a top-secret hibernation program. He and hooker Rita were to awaken in one years, but things go wrong and they wake up instead in 2505. By this time, stupid people have outbred intelligent people; the world is (barely) run by morons--and Joe and Rita are the smartest people in America.

http://imdb.com/title/tt0387808/

This could be a really lame dumb comedy (not that those can't be funny), but I've heard really good stuff about this! Too bad it's not getting marketed at all.
