As for upcoming (summer) movies, it is looking pretty bleak. District 9 is coming in a couple of weeks and the latest trailers have peaked my interest some, but I'm still on the fence about whether or not I want to see it. Other than that, there is a surprising lack of cool summer movies for August.
...keep the faith bro. Five Minutes of Heaven, Taxidermia, and Balibo all look promising. Although Taxidermia is an ominous one, as the movie was made 3 years ago in Hungary, and has only now been imported for release in the US. The Collector (aka: The Strangers 2) looks kinda campy. However if you're looking for blood, blood, & more blood... it seems to be just the ticket to satisfy one's creepy impetus.
-And yes... despite the Hollywood glow, I am pumped for `D9! The plot looks pretty sweet, and you can't go wrong with Peter Jackson. (and c'mon... what kind of a summer would it be without an alien movie??)
