Arts: Five Best : Films of 2007

By Josh Kurp

5. Pirates of the Caribbean III: At World’s End (May 25)

Can Keith Richards get his “rocks off” as a pirate? This and other important questions (like, will it better than the second one?) will be answered in the third and final movie.

4. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (July 13)

Now that we know Daniel Radcliffe looks sexy with his shirt off, let’s all hope that Dumbledore’s Army will kick as much ass on screen as they did in the book. …Because that’s totally not a nerdy comment.

3. Grindhouse (April 6)

The trailer kind of stunk, but half of the movie is a zombie film by Robert Rodriguez and the other half is a slasher film courtesy of Quentin Tarantino. Need I say more?

2. I’m Not There: Suppositions on a Film Concerning Dylan (TBA)

Named after an obscure Basement Tapes-era song from 1967, this movie about Bob Dylan is directed by the guy who told the life story of Karen Carpenter through Barbie dolls. If this doesn’t sound awesome to you, I hope you enjoy seeing junk like Norbit.

1. The Simpsons Movie (July 27)

The longest-running sitcom in television history finally comes to the big screen. And I’ll be first in line to see it. So take that, kid at Lang who I always see in the courtyard wearing a Simpsons shirt.
