5 Movies I like to watch...

These are the movies that I have been waiting for. They get released here in Australia over the next 2 months. Here we go, 5. Children of Men It should be a good science fiction with a racy climax. Storyline:Children of Men envisages a world one generation from now that has fallen into anarchy on the heels of an infertility defect in the population. The world's youngest citizen has just died at 18, and humankind is facing the likelihood of its own extinction. 4. Saw III Be useful or die. Watch the movie for more. Storyline:Jigsaw has disappeared. With his new apprentice Amanda, the puppet-master behind the cruel, intricate games that have terrified a community and baffled police has once again eluded capture and vanished. While city detectives scramble to locate him, Doctor Lynn Denlon is unaware that she is about to become the latest pawn on his vicious chessboard 3.
