Fifty-Two Wishes



I was being my usual self, creeping around on blogs and then stumbled on Cinematic Corner’s 50 Wishes post. Some of you might remember this, it was almost 2 years ago and inspired by Southern Vision’s post but obviously I had somehow missed it. But the idea is still great and since nothing ever dies in the blogging world, I hereby bring to you my 52 movie & TV-show related wishes (since it’s two years later, I figured it’s honorable to add some extra wishes).


  1. I wish there were more movies with Heath Ledger.
  2. I wish they stopped making bad sequels like every other sequel.
  3. I wish Leo already had his Oscar!
  4. I wish One Tree Hill had stopped with season 4.
  5. I wish Premium Rush never happened.
  6. I wish I could not remember the Bridesmaids street shitting scene.
  7. I wish I owned the cat from Meet the Parents.

  15. I wish High School Musical songs weren’t so damn catchy.
  16. I wish (in secret) that Supernatural ended with season 5.
  17. I wish they didn’t try to remake everything.
  18. I wish Guy Ritchie would make something as great as Snatch again.
  19. I wish Johnny Depp would get back to his glory days.
  20. I wish Tim Burton did the same.
  21. I wish there were more rom-com’s from the male perspective.alice in wonderland
  22. I wish Alice in Wonderland was less CGI.

  24. I wish they made more black and white movies like Frances Ha and The Artist.

    Oh wow – I agree with SO many of these (especially the first three). Great list! : )

      The first one is .. it makes me sad to think that I won’t be able to watch any new Ledger movies.

    Totally agreed on Number 1.

    And number 15. I loved that show through the first five seasons, tried season six and quit half way through, just so I could pretend it ended when it should have.

    Also agreed with 27. She is a great actor. I don’t care that she’s funny and overweight. Start using her to portray the nuance and depth she is capable of giving, if only to stop stereotyping.

    And 46. Huh. Idris Elba as James Bond. Huh again. I’d pay to see that.

      I know.. all these points would make a lot of great arguments and rambles but yes, agreed that it should have ended when it was kind of meant to end, you know.. with Kripke.

    I agree with ohh so many of these, too! Even the Supernatural one. Lovely post idea, too, and encouraging that I’m not the only one creeping on others’ blogs. 😀

    Holy shit, this was based on my post? I don’t even remember writing that, I need to stop drinking so much. Or writing so much because it all blends together sometimes.

    “I wish there were more TV-shows like Friends.” – yep, such warmth and true sense of friendship is so rare in TV nowadays. It’s all too much of a caricature these days.

      Yes, but 6 episodes a season.. why do Brits do this to me..

        6 episodes per season is the perfect length. I find the pacing in American series so drawn out with so much unnecessary padding. I suppose it depends on what you’re used to.

          Well I prefer the good old 12 episodes for a season, it is a bit longer and I can really really get into the characters.

    Thank you for acknowledging #39 🙂 Its so true about #15. TVD should be more about Klaus and Caroline. I love Damon and Stefan but its getting a bit old. I haven’t started The Originals but I’d always love to see more of Klaus! 🙂 And I’m down for Idris Elba as James Bond, goodness, that would be wow! Loved this!

        If they did it, I’d probably be more on track..I watched the first 3 eps of TVD and then stopped..I’m not doing too great with TV this year.
