At the movies in 2009...

I was just perusing a "50 Most Anticipated Movies of 2009" article and was thinking about some movies I'm looking forward to. So here's my short, short list (in order by date) of films I have high hopes for:

17 Again (4/17) I know the whole "middle-aged adult reliving childhood" bit has been done, but I like the looks of this one. It seems like a new way of doing it. And I like Matthew Perry, so there we go.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine (5/1) I wasn't really into the idea of having an X-Men movie that only featured Wolverine as the main player, but the trailer to this movie looks pretty kick-ass. Plus, it has Gambit in it so I'm definitely excited about seeing this film. If anything, it can't be any worse than X3.
Terminator Salvation (5/22) I haven't even seen the third Terminator movie, but Christian Bale is John Conner. And that's all I really need.
Up (5/29) I'd never heard about Up until today, but it's Disney Pixar's latest 3-D animated movie. The old man looks like he'll be hilarious.
The Proposal (6/12) I just saw the trailer for this movie and thought it was great. I can't wait to see this movie. It looks like it will be a refreshing change from the last dreary romantic comedy I saw (Made of Honor - ugh). I hope I'm not wrong.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (7/17) I was very disappointed when WB moved this film back, so July 2009 can't come soon enough. This is my most-anticipated film of 2009, hands down. HBP was a great book, and its movie version brings back the last HP movie director, who I thought did a stunning job with Order of the Phoenix. Can't wait for this film!
The Princess and the Frog (12/25) This is a 2-D Disney animated feature, and it's directed by the guys of The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, so I'm hoping this'll be a long-awaited Disney Classic. I'm not holding my breath, though. It takes place in New Orleans, so it can't be all bad.

I'm sure there are others I haven't heard of or haven't seen the trailer for. I'll probably go see Angels & Demons and New Moon. I have to see the trailer for Sherlock Holmes before I decide on that on. Though I'm not a big Jude Law fan, so I don't know. Any other films I'm missing that should impress? Let me know.
