I only really get excited about a movie when it gets close to showing.
I know I'm eventually going to see the superhero movies, and knowing that it kind of dampens my excitement to see them. It's the same with anything which is a known quantity for me. Monsters University is something I know I'll see because it's Pixar and they do good work. I do try not to come up with a list of movies ahead of time though because it's daunting and I'll forget to see some and then kick myself for forgetting. I also like to be surprised sometimes. Learning that there's a move that is right up my alley coming out in less than a month is one part of the movie going experience that I really like.
