15 Most Anticipated 3D Movies In The First Half Of 2012

In 3 days time, we are going to bid farewell to 2011 and ushering a brand new year, 2012. Basing on Chinese' Lunar Calendar, it's a year of Dragon, which is supposed to be a good year. But if we are to base on Maya's Calendar, it's supposed to be the year of "End Of The World". Anyway, we are still months away, why not focus on NOW and try to enjoy as many great movies as possible?!   

For movie buffs, 2011 is a year with ample 3D movies to choose from. Some are visual treat and selected others are just criminally redundant (for releasing into 3D format). Having said that, there are still quite a number of notable great 3D movies in 2011. Following are my pick of 10 most notable 3D Movies in 2011 (not in any particular order):

1. Harry Porter And The Deathly Hallows (Part 2)
2. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
3. Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
4. Captain America: The First Avenger
5. Fast Five (5th installment of "Fast And Furious")
6. Cars 2
7. Thor
8. Kungfu Panda 2
9. X-Men: First Class
10. Puss In Boots

If you were to ask me to pick one as my best 3D movie in 2011, my choice goes to:

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
What about you? How many of the above movies have you watched in 3D and which one is your best?

Underworld Awakening (Jan 2012)

After the success of "Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn (Part 1)", let's look at a movie with more serious and intense fights between the werewolf and vampire. And this time round, the center of attraction is no longer about the love affair between the human, werewolf and vampire but rather the war between the races.

Yes, I am referring to the forthcoming 3rd sequel of another humankind vs werewolf vs vampire flick - "Underworld Awakening". Kate Beckinsale reprises the main role, Selena, the vampire warrior who lead the fight against werewolf and humankind. 

Just to recap, following are the previous movies under this successful franchise, you may want to consider doing some refreshment to keep yourselves up to speed for the latest assault from Selena:

Underworld (2003)

Underworld: Evolution (2006)

Underworld: Rise Of The Lycons (2009)

Do you notice that the gap of each sequel is exactly 3 years? Not sure whether it's pure coincident or simply great planning and scheduling?

Enjoy the sharing...

The Adventures Of Tintin (Dec 2011)

I believed most of you folks know who Tintin is, but for the benefit of those who are still clueless (especially those younger generation), I am extracting herewith the summary history of Tintin from their official site: 

"The Adventures of Tintin series was created in 1929 by a Belgian artist who called himself Hergé. Clever and ever-curious, Tintin is a reporter-turned-detective whose pursuit of villains, criminals, treasure and the occasional artifact takes him all over the world, along with a colorful cast of friends. Hergé based his stories on real-world events and cultures that had caught the Belgian national attention — from space exploration to Arab oil wars — and brought them to life for his readers in inspiring and exciting ways."

In this first animation adaptation of the comic series, the world famous director Steven Speilberg has once again never fail to deliver what the audience are wishing for. You will get all the perfect ingredients of a classic adventure movi i.e. you will be thrilled and laughed throughout the slightly more than 100 minutes of run-time.
Enjoy the following compilation of the movie media!
