It's about a month and a half until Thor starts off this year's Summer Blockbuster Season. And I'm a sucker for the big summer blockbuster action movies. Here's a list of some of the movies I'm looking forward to. I'll be lucky if I get to see even half of them, with my schedule, but had I world enough and time I'd be at every one of them. Some probably twice.
Thor--the next Avengers lead-in movie from Marvel. Looks to be up there with Iron Man in quality. And a black Heimdall doesn't bother me at all.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides--At World's End was a somewhat disappointing 'end' to the trilogy, but trading Orlando Bloom for Ian McShane seems like an awesome idea.
X-Men: First Class--again, despite the disappointing X-Men Last Stand and epic piece of shit that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I'm looking forward to this. I've always been an X-Men fan, so I'm hoping this one is cool. Trailers look hopeful, at least.
Green Lantern--the third big comic book movie. I'm hoping it does well so that DC starts cranking out more movies--and quality ones--the way Marvel has been.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 2--We skipped Pt. 1, because the first half of the novel was a bore. We'll likely try to see it on VoD before we go see this, but if we don't have time we may just go see the ending. It's got all the cool parts of the book anyway.
Captain America: The First Avenger--how could I not go see this? It's Cap, and it looks awesome! (Unlike the weird surfer dude with shaggin' wagon 70's Cap...which is kinda cool in its own way).
Cowboys and Aliens--another awesome looking film. Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Sam Rockwell as cowboys blasting space invaders? Yes, please!
Fright Night--a remake of the 80's horror flick. This one may be worth seeing, but it's not a 100% must see. Could be fun, though.
Conan the Barbarian--I'm not sure if it'll be any good, but I'll go see it anyway. Fingers crossed on this one.
