Movies I Probably Won't See

We live in a time when there are so many movies that you just can't see them all. Judging from some of the trailers I've seen, that's a good thing. Sometimes a movie just gives off a bad vibe and doesn't make a connection with a potential viewer. That is the case with the following movies that I'm pretty sure I won't be seeing.

The Sorcerers Apprentice-I was worried that this Nicholas Cage/Disney combination was going to be another National Treasure with long hair. I actually rented it but didn't end up getting through it, but I was right. It was directed by Jon Turtletaub who did National Treasure.

Country Strong- Gwyneth Paltrow playing a country singer kind of blows my mind. That's like Larry the Cable Guy playing James Bond. I'll be impressed if she can pull it off. The movie looks like it could be good, but I'm just not a country fan. I also don't want to watch Tim McGraw's beard.

Tangled- I'll bet it's a cute feel good animated movie with plenty of inside adult jokes for the parents, but I just don't see myself going to it. I have too many "real" movies to see first even if it is a good movie.

Rio- A cartoon about birds. I just don't care enough about cartoon birds in Brazil to watch this. It doesn't make any difference how many talented actors are doing the voice work for it. It also worries me when the trailer says "from the creators of...." as they try to ride on the success of other movies.

The Green Hornet and The Green Lantern. I usually love superhero movies, but neither of these green features look very interesting to me. I think Thor is one of the lamer super heroes, but that movie looks much better then these two.

Little Fockers- I really liked Meet the Parents. I heard the sequel sucked and now they decided to come out with another one? Did they really need to turn this into a trilogy?

Will this still be funny a third time?
I don't intend to see any of these movies because they just don't appeal to me. I could be wrong and if I do end up seeing any of these and they are good, I will be the first to admit it with an official review.

With the exception of Tangled, I have not seen nor intend to see any of the films on your list. Totally agree with you.

I LOVED Meet the Parents, and I liked but not loved Meet the Fockers but Little Fockers was terrible!
