11 movies I want to see in 2011. Part 2

To see part 1 go to

Below you will find the movie’s title, the estimated release date, the movie’s poster (if available), and why I want to see it. Movie’s listed in order of estimated release date.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. July 15

8 movies, 10 years. Quite amazing.  Part 1 was great. I expect that part 2 will not disappoint.

Captain America : The First Avenger. July 22

He is the heartbeat of the Avengers. Thanks to Captain America comic books, I paid close attention when studying WW 2 in grade school. Speaking of grade school – I loved my Captain America and The Falcon comics.

This movie set in WW2 (Yep – I said WW2),will tell how frail Steve Rogers becomes Captain America. This movie, more than any other, sets up The Avengers movie. (coming in 2012)

If you want to know the Comic book version of Steve Rogers’ saga go to –

Cowboys & Aliens. July 29.

Great movie title! This story first appeared as a Graphic Novel (comic book) in 1997 published by Platinum Studios

If the awesome title alone does not explain “the why” to Cowboys & Aliens -This movie stars Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford and is directed by Jon Favreau ( Iron Man etc).

One cool thing about this movie- You can follow Cowboys & Aliens on Twitter – @cwboysandaliens

I am following this movie on Twitter via my @GoodLifeMovies Twitter feed. (my Twitter feeds are topic specific. to read more about how I use Twitter go to )

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. December 21.

I have not read the books, however I know enough, to know that this is a movie I do not want to miss.

You might be thinking, “Hey, wait a minute, I already saw this movie!”. “My wife made me watch it, it had subtitles and everything”.

That was the 2009 Swedish version you were made to watch. The movie coming out in December 2011, is the American version. No subtitles.

This version stars Daniel Craig, Robin Wright and Rooney Mara, who will play the series main character  Lisbeth Salander. Rooney Mara was last seen in The Social Network. Rooney delivered the great line “dating you is like dating a Stairmaster.”

We Bought a Zoo. December 23

This wonderful book, that is based on a true story, is being into a movie starring Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and is directed by Cameron Crowe. This is going to be a wonderful movie. You heard it here first!

That’s it!
