Movies I Wanna Watch #01

There're many movies I'd like to see this year and I'm going to write about some of them. I'll write about other movies in the future and review those that I think are really good, like Avatar, that I wrote a review for in December.

Below are three movies that I'd like to see.

The Descent: Part 2

Two days after the events of the first film Sarah is washed away to safety with no memory of the events of the last time she was in the cave. She is taken to a hospital where it is revealed some of the blood on her matches that of Juno Kaplan. Sheriff Vaines demands that along with his deputy Elen Rios, Sarah and 3 specialists Dan, Greg and Cath must go back into the cave to find the missing girls. A new entrance is found with the help of a sniffer dog. The girls are sent down via an old elevator operated by the old, mysterious Ed Oswald.

I love the first movie, it's one of the scariest horror movies I've ever seen. I didn't know what to expect of the movie, only that it was a new horror film. So the monsters in the cave were a big surprise, that scared the shit out of me! I love that it has the basic things that a lot of people are scared of like: darkness, claustrophobia and monsters to mention a few.

I'm really looking forward to the sequel, and what I've heard is that it's one of those sequels that are really good. I hope to watch it in the cinema, or I'll download it on Blu-ray when it's released.


In the year 2019, a plague has transformed much of the world's population into vampires. Edward Dalton (Ethan Hawke) is a hematologist employed by Bromley Marks, a pharmaceutical company that is the chief supplier of blood for the American population, which is operated by Charles Bromley (Sam Neill). As the human population nears extinction, vampires must capture and farm every remaining human for their blood, or find a blood substitute before time runs out. When deprived of blood for extended periods of time, vampires lose their human-like characteristics and begin to transform into winged bat-like monsters called "sub-siders," those of which have diminished mental capacity and no ability to speak and are driven strictly by their impulse to feed. However, a covert group of humans makes a remarkable discovery, one which has the power to save the human race.

I like some vampire movies, I haven't seen that many, but the ones I've seen are great. I like 30 Days of Night and the Swedish vampire movie Låt rätte komma in (Let the Right One In), which has been really well received around the world and is one of the best horror movies of all time!

Daybreakers sounds interesting and is a movie that I'm going to see when it's released for download.

The Road

The Road shares the premise of the novel on which it is based: a father (Mortensen) and his young son (Smit-McPhee) struggle to survive a number of years after an unspecified, devastating cataclysm has destroyed civilization, killed all plant and animal life, and obscured the sun; only remnants of mankind remain alive, reduced to scavenging or cannibalism. Man and boy are travelling toward the south, in the hope that it will be warmer. Along the way, they search for shelter, food and fuel, and avoid bands of cannibals while trying to maintain their own sense of morality and humanity. The man carries a pistol with two bullets in case they need to hasten the end. Flashback and dream sequences spaced throughout the narrative show how the man's wife, who has a much more expanded role in the film than in the book, committed suicide after delivering the child into a seemingly doomed world and losing the will to go on.

I really like post-apocalyptic movies, I like the feeling of being alone in the world and feeling free to go and do whatever you want. But it's also a dangerous place where people are desperate for food and water and will do whatever it takes to get it, that's what makes these kinds of movies so scary.

This movie caught my attention when I saw a trailer for it on YouTube and I've wanted to see it ever since. I'll probably see this one in the cinema and maybe write a review about it.
