June 2014 Movie Preview

This month pretty much blows. April was anchored by awesome Cap and Raid 2, May was an explosion with Spider-Man, Godzilla, X-Men along with DVD/Red Box Hobbitt. And then June comes along and… I will see probably one movie in the theaters and I won’t rush there that weekend. Summer is supposed to be THE time for may type of movies but it looks like June is getting skipped this year.

.

Best Theatrical Release: Transformers: Age of Extinction
Best Home Release: 300: Rise of an Empire
Best Red Box Release: 3 Days to Kill??

.

Theatrical Release

Edge of Tomorrow

Date: June 5

Verdict: I just don’t see it happening, even though reviews so far have been solid. Probably a good Red Box rental or cheap dollar theater.

.

22 Jump Street

Date: June 13

Verdict: I don’t do comedies but I heard 21 Jump Street was pretty good so if it is your thing…

.

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Date: June 27

Verdict: There it is. Probably the blockbuster of the summer (money wise). With Bay you know what you will get at this point but switching Shia for Wahlberg is a huge net positive. I actually enjoy the Transformers movies for what they are (robots killing each other) plus… it has Optimus Prime with a giant sword riding Gridlock/T-rex Dinobot that breaths fire. Sold.

Home and Red Box Releases for June after the jump…

Lone Survivor

The Lego Movie

.

300: Rise of an Empire

Date: June 24

Verdict: Yessir. Blu Ray purchase for sure. Not sure if I will wait a bit to get a cheaper used version or just buy it. I have Amazon money burning a hole in my pocket lol.

.

Red Box Release

Date: June 10

Verdict: Probably check this out because June is so damn slow.

.
