Memorial Day passed. The school year has nearly expired. My car’s heater is stuck on the hottest setting. Summer is here! I glorify attending movies any time of the year, but it is most rewarding in the summer. There’s always a slew of excitement-packed/CGI-filled/action-figure-inducing films that are sure to be available for sale on DVD just as the Christmas shopping season begins. I embrace the commercialism of this American tradition. I love it.
I already saw Star Trek. Did I mention I saw it twice? Thumbs up. I also took The Max to Night at the Museum last weekend. I wasn’t disappointed, but I expected Ben Stiller and his cronies to be poor to fair, which I think it was.
Here’s some other movies I will be viewing while drinking Cherry Coke:
I don’t think this looks as promising as many previous Pixar movies. I hope to be pleasantly surprised when I watch it.
*I went an saw Up since writing this…not bad at all. Better than I presumed.
Stop sniveling haters. True, the first one was 1 1/2 stars for the story. But surely the 4 star worthy robots made the film, at minimum, entertaining for a couple hours. I long to watch the robots in transformation and follow it up by killing other robots. If I desired an epic story, I’d go rent Slumdog Millionaire. Someday there will be a robot killing movie with an Oscar worthy plot. I accept that it will not be in this series.
I’m hoping to laugh. The kid from Juno is in it. He’s a fun time. I’m not expecting a killer plot, just laughs.
Terminator 4(or whatever they’re calling it)
This sequel, twenty-five years after the original is a maybe. I’ll go if I get around to renting part 3. It will not be superior to T2. Why? If Linda Hamilton is not making voice overs as Sarah Connor, it’s not entertainment. Also, can you imagine if the casting director got all comical and re-cast Edward Furlong as John Connor?
Because, this is what he looks like today.
Imagine this guy trying to save the world.
I’m going to skip over summer now and head straight into fall. This October brings about the most anticipated children’s movie of my long, long life.
Watch that video, for real. Here’s why I am drooling for this film:
A) It’s Where the Wild Things Are! It’s a classic. Kids read it today…my generation read it…and the generation before read it to their kids. Most are acquainted with the story.
B) There’s a lack of computer animated hooey. We have come to expect amazing visuals in childeren’s films, but often this is the focus of the movie, which leads to less than decent story.
C) This is a guess, and a hopefully correct one: There doesn’t seem to be a lot of times where adults are on film. I think an ample number of live action kids movies could be helped with cutting out the time adults are on screen.
There’s a bunch more movies I did not review, because I don’t necessarily want to see them. Especially Ice Age 3. Why must every animated movie now come in groups of at least three?
I changed the look here, yes. I might change it back or at least make it similar to what it was as this light background is annoying me. For now, you get the mannequin from the surplus store staring into your soul…
