I think this will be a very disappointing blockbuster season. It certainly got off to a bad start with Wolverine, which I thought kinda sucked. The only movies I'm really looking forward to this summer are Star Trek, Public Enemies and Up (Pixar never lets me down). Transformers 2 will basically the same as the first, which means more lame and infantile humor. I haven't decided on Terminator 4 yet. The trailer looks promising and it features Christian Bale, but it is a scary thought that we have to depend on McG to save the summer season...



Yeah but there is Megan Fox on it.

This years is being slow to me to get any interest in movies, nothing good right now, nothing interistting from Brazil either.

My take on some of the movies I've seen trailers for:

Wolverine : I think I've seen all three of the original X-Men movies, but I'm not a crazy fanboy, so I really could care less how Wolverine got his claws. That being said, this is one of two popcorn movies I will see, simply because that "KER-CHING" sound of metal of flesh makes me happy. Like 13 year old kid playing with Legos happy.

T-4 - I've decided Christian Bale has as much charm as a bouquet of dead roses but that wont stop me from making this the other popcorn movie I see this summer. Things will go BOOM and that, again, will make me happy.

Public Enemies - This looks like a good one but enough with Bale. Again, I saw him for exactly 3 seconds in the trailer but he does nothing but bring stomach acid up from the back of my throat. I'm really beginning to dislike this guy. That aside, Johnny Depp is amazing in pretty much everything he does not involving Tim Burton. Slowly step away from Tim Burton, Johnny...thats it...I'd rather watch you for 20 minutes in Chocolat than 2 hours of Sweeny Todd. As for the movie, I'm a sucker for 30's era gangster films, so I might go out to see this one.

Give 'Em Hell, Malone - Wow...Kill Bill meets Snatch meets...uh...every tough guy film made in the 70's. Yeah, like DiG said, one of the most violent trailers I've ever seen. Not sure what to make of this one yet...this one might go straight to Netflix.

Star Trek - This one will be so rotten, it's going to spread swine flu to everyone in the theater. Yes! Flu from pigs!! Stay away at all costs!

Inglourious Basterds - Tarantino tries his hand at WWII and who knows what the outcome will be. Let's just hope it's more Pulp Fiction than Grindhouse. I'll probably see this one as I'm a Tarantino fanboy but his biggest strength is creating fantasitc characters and rich dialouge. I'm hoping the WWII setting doesn't hold him back in that regard. Haven't seen the trailer yet (cursed work computer) but I'll have a better feel for it once I do.

I thought the Wolverine movie was pretty good. It's no Dark Knight or Watchmen, but hell, what is? It's a good popcorn flick. Nothing more, nothing less.

That said, I almost wish I was a little more into the X-Men so I woulda understood half of the mutants they tried squeezing into this movie. From what I understand, they made one character up just so they could give the dude from Black Eyed Peas a role, and that's kinda cheesy.

But, all in all, an entertaining flick.

Alright, so it's entirely not my type of movie, but The Hangover looks hilarious based on the trailer they just showed on Versus.

It's clearly because of Mike Tyson rocking out to In The Air Tonight.

The rest of it looks funny as well.

I love Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, so I'm definitely going to see Public Enemies.
And I'm not gonna lie, Harry Potter comes out. I'm going to the midnight showing like a 10 year old. Hahahaa

Luckily for me, Tim Burton is nowhere near Public Enemies, making it worthwhile to see. Micheal Mann (Heat, Collateral) is direcitng this one, so I'm expecting a good time.

Alos, I agree that Johnny Depp is fantastic and Tim Burton is a visionary, but lately, together, they really fall flat. Charlie and the Choclate Factory? Sweeny Todd? Blech! Sorry guys, but you can't capture the magic of Edward Scissorhands on ever film you make.

Tyson singing = instant funny.

Not funny enough for me to run out and see the movie, but if it came on HBO I'd check it out. Looks like an entertaining premise. The trailer for Jack Black's "Year One", on the other hand... :puke:

OK, I was VERY unsure about seeing this one based on past butcheries of the Hulk and MORE so Transformers (even Superman to an extent)

BUT HOLD sh!t DID STAR TREK GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am highly impressed on how they rebooted the fracnhise while not only NOT sh!tting on the original but honoring it in the highest of ways!!!

Wolverine was pretty good. Just don't stay and watch what's after the credits like I did!

I'm not a fan of Star Trek at all, but if I was I would have thought the movie was excellent. Great casting, great cinematography, just not a Star Trek kinda guy...

I can't wait for Inglourious Basterds!!

...Random...but just saw Fight Club and American History X the first time the other night--WOW.

This is why I believe that, Incredible Hulk aside, Edward Norton is one of the best actors of our generation.

Go rent/download/Netflix queue/whatever The Illusionist. Great movie.

I completely agree.

I thought Ed Norton was this soft, puny dweep kind-of-guy. I have so much respect for this guy. He's such a great actor. I thought he was actually good in the Incredible Hulk--better than Eric Bana, at least.

I could watch Fight Club, American History X, and The Illusionist (mainly for Jessica Biel :boogie: ) all day.

All the performances in The Illusionist were excellent, IMO. Norton, Paul Giamatti, Jessica Biel -- and Rufus Sewall as Crown Prince Leopold was killer.
