I hate hyping myself up for movies too much, but there's nothing wrong with a little anticipation is there? This article by Devin Faraci at Chud has certainly got me psyched to see the three films he calls "stunning achievements, absolute masterworks". And those films are Guillermo del Toro's dark fantasy Pan's Labyrinth, Alfonso Cuaron's dystopian sci-fi tale Children of Men, and Darren Aronofsky's millenia spanning love story The Fountain.
I've been hearing about The Fountain for years - it's had quite a troubled production. Pan's Labyrinth has been on my radar for some time as well - at least a year, if not more. Children of Men caught me by surprise though - I knew nothing of it till I saw the trailer, and while my curiosity was piqued then, I didn't get too excited by it till the reviews started popping up.
I have no idea if I'll wind up loving these films or not (or even hating them - The Fountain has had its share of extreme negative reactions), but given the people involved and the positive reactions from credible sources, I'm certain that they are exceptional films that will be worth watching.
Besides those three, I'm also keenly anticipating Zack Snyder and Frank Miller's ultra stylized Battle of Thermopylae film 300, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, and Hot Fuzz from Shaun of the Dead duo Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright.
