    Summer Movies

    Summer movie season is ramping up with the first big blockbuster of the season, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, opening this Friday. I'm actually excited or at least interested in quite a few movies this year--more than I think I have been for a long time, or maybe even ever...

    May 1st: Wolverine
    May 8th: Star Trek
    May 15th: Angels & Demons (Da Vinci Code sequel)
    May 22nd: Terminator Salvation
    May 29th: Up (new Pixar movie)
    June 5th: Land of the Lost (Will Ferrell)
    June 24th: Transformers 2
    July 10th: Brüno (Sacha Baron Cohen of Borat fame)
    July 15th: Harry Potter 6
    August 7th: G.I. Joe
    August 23rd: Inglourious Basterds (remake of old film directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Brad Pitt)

    Just about all of these are sequels or remakes, but I'm still interested in all of them. What movies are all of you interested in seeing this summer?

    Re: Summer Movies

    There are other movies coming besides Transformers 2?

    Actually I'm pretty pumped for Terminator Salvation too.

    Terminator Salvation is the one I'm most looking forward to. I really like the story line in all of the movies and even the TV show.

    Land of the Lost could be sweet. I'm also looking forward to Angels and Demons.

    As long as Emma Watson is in it, I'm totally cool with seeing Harry Potter.

    I liked both books very much, actually Angels & Demons more. I'm hoping they do better job on this movie than they did with the Da Vinci Code. It was a good movie but didn't touch the book. I guess that is common though.

    I read both and Angels and Demons is much better than Da Vinci Code, I hope the movies are the same way. I am really looking forward to it.

    No, the book wasn't a sequel. More like a prequel but I think I heard somewhere that they are making the move more like a sequel.
    I saw a trailer where they said something like "the ancient cult found the secret to the universe" which would be way off from the book already. Based on these "facts" and the first movie, I don't have high hopes for this one either.

    BTW - Dan Brown has another book in the works. Looking forward to that.

    Re: Summer Movies

    May 1st: Wolverine *
    May 8th: Star Trek *
    May 15th: Angels & Demons (Da Vinci Code sequel) *
    May 29th: Up (new Pixar movie) *
    June 24th: Transformers 2
    July 15th: Harry Potter 6 *
    August 7th: G.I. Joe

    Are the ones that trip my trigger. The ones with * are the ones I will probably actually see. (they get stars if I can talk my wife into it). Speaking of her she will rope me into Ice Age 3 more than likely as well.


    Cyclone: 1st, Jayhawk: 2nd, Hawkeye? Never!

    Harry Potter 6 is gonna be BA. I cannot wait for that movie.

    Inglorious Bastards looks sweet too. I don't know what to think of that trailer, especially with B.J. Novak playing a serious role

    This is going to be a bad *** movie. That trailer just looks crazy...


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    The plot of Termonator is just so original and fun. I love it.

    Re: Summer Movies

    I have heard from some people who saw the leaked version of Wolverine that it is a disappointment. Of course, they are uber comic book nerds who are well versed in the minutiae of Wolverine's comic book heritage, but they were still put off by all the liberties the filmmakers took with the story and characters. I will still see it, as I love Wolverine, but I am not holding my breath for a good film.

    I am probably most excited for Star Trek and Transformers. I think they are going to rockzorzz.
