Had me a blast.... Summer movies, happened so fast....
Summer is upon us again, and the list of major movies coming out in the coming months are numerous. As college students we can't go and watch all of them, can we? Here's a handy guide to all the big movies coming out in the first half of the summer. Of course, being lazy and all, I'll get around to the other ones later!
- Iron Man 2: Remember how awesome the first one was? If you don't, go
watch it! I was told by a very reliable source that the second movie has fewer mentions of Burger King, which is its only downfall, but still! RDJ! How can you NOT want to watch it?!
- Robin Hood: When not beating up hotel employees, apparently Russell Crowe found time to go back and make Gladiator 2, or so I'm told. If you liked Gladiator 1, you'd probably like this one.
- Shrek Forever After: You know Shrek's going downhill when I hadn't heard of this movie until I looked on IMDB, two weeks before its release. Apparently in this movie, Shrek finds out he never existed, which probably parallels the adults in the audience because they would be able to avoid this obvious attempt at milking a dead cash cow.
- Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time: What's better than a movie set in the Middle East starring an all-white cast posing as middle-eastern people? Apparently the solution to make it look more realistic is to give the entire movie a yellow-tint. Still, if you're into this Jake Gyllenhaal fella, I hear he looks hot in it. Mmmm, beefcakes.
- Sex & the City 2: I only added it in because of the potential female reader in the audience. To whom I say: Respect gone!
- Marmaduke: Remember the live-action Garfield? Replace kitty with big dog, and bam! New movie!
- The A-Team: It's just not the same with Mr. T, but still, they needed to have someone in there while Mr. T is off playing WoW with his night elf mohawk, so here we are.
- The Karate Kid: Personally, I don't really see how this works, since I thought Jackie Chan was all about the Kung Fu, but I guess he can diversify his profile. Sequel idea: Ghandi teaches Abigail Breslin tae bo.
- Toy Story 3: It's about TOYS! WHAT ARE WE, FIVE?!
So there you go! All the major movies in the next two months, broken down for your consumption! Just as a side note, don't watch The Human Centipede, I hear it's so bad Roger Ebert refused to give it a star.
