No, I'm not talking about the most anticipated films of next year. I'm talking about the movies most likely to generate traffic on these boards. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say.
Could there be a more BAUT-friendly title than that? And it's directed by Roland "Day After Tomorrow" Emmerich to boot. Expect this site's bandwidth to implode when this one comes out.
2. Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen
Ah Michael Bay. How we missed you. The last time you did a Transformers movie, you told the world that Mars's sky was blue and that it had mud flats. What will you do now?
3. Monsters Vs. Aliens
One of the characters is a fishman called the Missing Link. Expect creationists to claim that this proves that evolutionists can't figure out if man evolved from apes or fish. You know it will happen.
4. Year One
Harold Ramis has made some great movies (Groundhog Day, anyone?) but here he seems to be courting the creationist dollar with a movie about exiled cavemen who encounter scenes from the Book of Genesis. Could be a blast. Could be a disaster.
5. Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
Title says it all, really.
6. Race to Witch Mountain
UFO conspiracy for kiddies.
7. Star Trek
As scifi franchises go, Star Trek has a pretty good track record with scientific accuracy (I said pretty good!) but how far off will the notoriously ponderous JJ Abrams veer in his so-called reinvention? Anyone watch Fringe? This could be bad.
You just know that someone on this forum is going to point out that no, it isn't actually possible to fly a house using a thousand helium balloons and sails made of shower curtains. Nor is it possible to drag a flying house along behind you on a piece of string as you hike through the mountains of Venezuela. To say nothing of how the toilet is supposed to work.
9. Land of the Lost
If they stick to the TV show, which depicted this place as a parallel universe accessed via dimensional portals, then this could be OK. But if they actually start saying that this is a real place under the ground, expect some science debate.
A murder mystery set in Antarctica involving a "a secret buried for 60 years". Exactly how many secrets have people managed to bury there? Let alone 60 years ago. I gotta bad feeling about this...
