I didn't love "The Wettest County in the World" but the trailer looks awesome. And I don't know of a single person who isn't on the edge of their seats waiting fro The Hobbit movies.
2011 was a mixed year for adaptations, ranging from bad ("One Day") to okay ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo") to great ("Drive"). 2012 looks to have more sterling book-to-film adaptations on the slate, ranging from massive YA sensations to smaller, prestige pictures, and everything in between. Weve narrowed down the year in adaptations to 10 to look out for.
Let me be the first person to declare that I am not eagerly awaiting The Hobbit.
Kyle, is that because you love Tolkien's books so much, or hate them so much?
It's neither. I haven't read any of The Lord of the Rings novels but I saw all the films. I didn't think they were the cat's pajamas. So based on that I am assuming (although I could be wrong) that my opinion of The Hobbit will be no different.
Anna Karenina for me. Joe Wright is one of the most talented working directors today and a new, refreshing take on Tolstoy has got me really excited
