American Astronaut

Woo! I'm free! (of school)

I just finished my post-high-school high-school swedish course and I got a pretty good grade on it too! If 1 means failed and 4 is the best I got a 3 as my grade.(we have a really strange and sucky grade-system here)

It's a really important subject if you want to study further so I've had that failed course in the back of my head ever since finishing high-school so it feels amazing getting rid of it. I'm free! :D

I'm not sure what I should do now though. No plans whatsoever for next year. It gives me a confusing feeling of freedom and anxiety. :S

Aaaanyway.

Here's a couple of movies I'm really looking forward to! (and you should too)

The Dark Knight
I'm not really much of a batman fan.. (not that that I dislike him or anything) but damn I love Batman Begins so much. I really can't wait for this movie! I like the pictures I've seen so far. The Joker looks crazy! (good)

Hellboy II: The Golden Army
I have mixed feelings for the first hellboy movie. Some bits were bad, and I didn't like some of the changes to the source-material. But the good stuff, which outweighs the bad, was flippin' amazing! And I have a feeling the sequel is going to be so much better than the first. The plot sounds alot more interesting and I love all the concept art. And Johann is in it! Damn, I can't wait! Trailer out this month I think.

Diary of the Dead
Even though I was dissapointed in Land of the Dead I'm crazy excited for this movie. Romero going back to his indie-roots can only be good. When the hell are we going to get a trailer??

Doomsday
From the guy who made Dog Soldiers and The Descent (I love both). After a deadly virus wreaks havoc in scotland they decide to just wall in that entire part of the island. Years later people have somehow survied behind the walls and created these post-apocalyptic societies. Then the virus suddenly re-appear in england and they have to venture into quarantined Scotland to find out how people survived to make a cure. No trailer yet but there's this nifty sneak-preview site with lots of info and pictures: http://www.doomsdayiscoming.com/

Dante 01
Debut solo-movie (I think) from Marc Caro (the other director of Delicatessen and City of Lost Children). A space movie that takes place in a orbital penal facility about an inmate who's met some aliens or something and gets weird powers. (I think) The trailer looks beautiful! Caro has a great eye for nice visuals. Premieres in January in France I think. Here's the main site where you should be able to find a trailer: http://www.dante01.com/

Werewolf Hunters of the Midwest
And this is a movie where there's veeeeery little information. It's by genius auteur Cory McAbee. He's a musician, artist, writer and director and made one of my favourite movies "The American Astronaut" in 2001. That movie is a black and white space western musical with great music and visuals and lots of weirdness and humour. There's a couple of fun clips on youtube I think. "Werewolf Hunters of the Midwest" is his latest movie, the first since "The American Astronaut" and I think it will be about some werewolf-hunter teaching someone the ways of werewolf-hunting. But also about a werewolf teaching a newly turned werewolf the ways of.. uh.. being a werewolf. Anyway I love his first movie and I can't wait for this.
