The Geek List

January 26: season 2 of Torchwood starts.
April 1: a new R.E.M. cd.
May 2: Iron Man. Just when you think "another fucking comic book movie!" they get Jon Favreau to direct it with Robert Downey as eccentric billionaire inventor alcoholic superheroTony Stark, Terrence Howard as Rhodey, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. This could be awesome.
May 9: Speed Racer+ Wachowski Brothers= movie madness.
May 22: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
July 18: Batman- The Dark Knight. The jury is definitely out on Heth Ledger's Joker but it's Nolan and Bale (with Michael Caine as Alfred) so I have no choice but to go.
Sometime after the Presidential Elections so as to not make waves: a new U2 cd.
November 22: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.
December 25: JJ Abrams's attempt at Star Trek, for which I will have my knives sharpened (remember, I've read his script for Superman before Bryan Singer blew it with Superman Returns- and Abrams's was way worse).
