Summer Movie List

Tell me what blockbusters you're looking forward to this summer, or maybe a smaller, lesser known movie you came across and can't wait to rave about.

The hubby and I have already seen Iron Man and we both really enjoyed it. And of course, I'm a child of the '80's, so I can't wait to see Indiana Jones.

But what of some of the newer ones that are only coming out now? Admittedly, I wasn't a big fan of the first Hulk movie, but I love all the old-school comic book heroes, so I'll still be watching Hulk 2-if only for the nostalgic value.

My little guy is already over the moon for Kung Fu Panda. He's a You Tube freak (at 5 years old, his favourite thing to do is find old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Spiderman cartoons online and watch them) So he's already seen every trailer out there, and he can't wait. He already has a favourite character, too. The Monkey (played by Jackie Chan). We're planning a mommy/son afternoon at the theatre this weekend to watch it-which won't be complete without a great big bag of popcorn and about three trips to the restrooms.

I think we'd also like to try and see Speed Racer because I'm a glutton for anything that goes real fast.

What kind of movie are you itching to head out to the theatre to see? What will make you brave crowds? Um, or maybe you'll go to something utterly forgettable just for a chance to make out in the dark with your special someone?

Oh yeah, that sounds like a plan...

I can't wait to see Indiana Jones! I grew up watching those movies. I just hope this one doesn't suck.

J.K. Coi said...

Kelly, I heard it was good. Definitely doesn't suck.

I've seen Indy; I loved it...but I don't have quite the expectations for it like I did for POTC.

Want to see:

The Love Guru (Timberlake in a speedo. Hello.)

Don't Mess with the Zohan (I can't help it. I love low brow movies)

Get Smart (not a Carrell fan, but looks hysterical)

And typically I find another dozen or so I *need* to see. I'm a movie holic.

J.K. Coi said...

Yes, Hellion, I'm really looking forward to Get Smart too! Thanks for reminding me.

I'm looking forward to seeing Indiana Jones, although by the time I get to the movies it will probably be out on DVD, It will be interesting to see what they do with Get Smart. Oh, and the Abba movie sounds like fun. I loved the stage show.

J.K. Coi said...

There's an ABBA Movie!
Where's Ely?

Steve said...

The sequel to Batman begins. Can't WAIT to see that one. Finally someone is going to play the Joker as the dark serial killing nutjob that he really is (rip heath).

J.K. Coi said...

Yay Steve! *hugs*

J.K. Coi said...

Actually I forgot about Batman too. I won't be able to afford all the movies I need to watch this summer. Anyone wanna babysit?

Amy Ruttan said...

I want to see Indiana and I want to see Sex and the City.

I have no idea about new movies coming out. It's sad.

I don't watch TV therefore I don't see commercials

It's pathetic.

Amy Ruttan said...

Wait ... what! Did Shelley say there was an Abba movie?

I have the 1978 movie when they went to Australia ... but there's another one. GASP!!

Oh I think I want to see Get Smart, love Carrell.
