#1 Source Code
I wasn't crazy about the previews, but I give Duncan Jones the benefit of the doubt. His last film, Moon, was one of my favorites from 2009.
"Detailing both the horror and growing cynicism of modern warfare, this intimate and visually stunning documentary follows a platoon of Danish soldiers on a six-month tour of Afghanistan in 2009."
#3 Project Nim
"From the Oscar-winning team behind Man on Wire comes the story of Nim, the chimpanzee who in the 1970s became the focus of a landmark experiment which aimed to show that an ape could learn to communicate with language if raised and nurtured like a human child. Following Nim's extraordinary journey through human society, and the enduring impact he makes on the people he meets along the way, the film is an unflinching and unsentimental biography of an animal we tried to make human. What we learn about his true nature - and indeed our own - is comic, revealing and profoundly unsettling."
#4 The Elephant in the Living Room
"Explores the controversial American subculture of raising the deadliest and most exotic animals on earth as common household pets."
#5 Cave of Forgotten Dreams
"Werner Herzog gains exclusive access to film inside the Chauvet caves of Southern France, capturing the oldest known pictorial creations of humankind in their astonishing natural setting."
#6 The Tree of Life
Terrence Malick (Badlands, The Thin Red Line) is more than worth the ticket price ... although, I pray it's not pretentious jibbery joo
Kristen Wiig is one of my favorite comedians, and with the dearth of well-written female roles (especially in comedies), Wiig thought it best to write one herself. it's about damn time women get a comedy of their own to star in.
Canada's submission for last year's Oscars, Incendies follows a woman piecing together the puzzle of her mother's enigmatic past ... I've heard nothing but great things.
#9 Your Highness
Last summer lacked in the good raunchy comedy department, so I'm crossing my fingers for this summer. And from the people behind Pineapple Express, I'd say this is a pretty good bet. Although, I am a bit worried that this brand of comedy could fall flat on its face.
#10 Super 8
JJ Abrams is one of the most talented pop filmmakers since Steven Spielberg. Although it may seem reminiscent of Close Encounters, I'm thinking that at the very least, this will be incredibly entertaining.
Honorable Mention: The Troll Hunter
A silly tongue-in-cheeck adventure movie following a group of Norwegian film students that set out to capture real-life trolls on camera after learning their existence has been covered up for years by a government conspiracy.
