I told ya’ll that after Avengers came out, that shit was about to get real movie wise. And it is. There are TONS of potential fun movies and some really epic ones coming this summer. Sadly I won’t be able to see as many as I hope due to the fact movies are expensive and I am broke but holy moly take a look at the list below.
Summer for me is June through August. Click the name to head to the IMBD page of the movie. If I missed anything, let me know in the comments.
Snow White and the Huntsman
Date: June 1
Verdict: Looks good. A must see. I think this movie will surprise people.
Date: June 8
Verdict: If you are into these types of movies, this is a must see. It really isn’t my cup of tea but it is definitely something I want to see eventually. I just don’t think I can justify the $10 theater ticket for this one.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Date: June 22
Verdict: This will be entertaining as hell or stupid as shit. I am very interested in it but I will see what the reviews say on a few sites I trust first. [I just saw the latest trailer. Nevermind… must see for me. — Shadow]
G.I. Joe: Retaliation Date: June 29 Verdict: The trailers look like they are totally revamping the G.I. Joe line, which is a good thing as the first movie was “meh.” Taking out Tatum and the Wayan and replacing them with the Rock, Bruce Willis, and more ninjas is a solid choice. Will probably see this if the reviews are decent.
[This movie has been pushed back to March 2013 at the last moment. — Shadow]
The Amazing Spider-Man
Date: July 3
Verdict: I don’t understand why the reboot is here already. And I don’t understand the direction of the movie. But it is still Spider-Man and Spider-Man is cool and I will be watching this.
The Dark Knight Rises
Date: July 20
Verdict: The big cheese of the summer. Batman Begins is one of my favorite movies ever. The Dark Knight was great, although it is incredibly overrated. I doubt many people will be skipping the end of this trilogy.
Date: August 3
Verdict: More of a DVD rental sort of thing in a summer with this many good movies.
The Bourne Legacy
Date: August 3
Verdict: I loved the first three Bourne movies but I really hope this movie isn’t the same thing, just with a different actor. Renner was excellent in The Avengers so I have high hopes. I just hope the plot is interesting and not the same thing all over again.
The Expendables 2
Date: August 17
Verdict: Stallone. Arnold. Willis. Li. Norris. Van Damme. Rourke. Statham. Terry. Sign me up.
