Bring on the 2008 Cheesy Summer Movies! Woohoo!

April 21st, 2008

For a movie fan, summer is an awesome time. The anticipation of block-buster hits, cool matinĂ©e showings,Heath Joker Speed Racer AvatarMilk Duds, and over-priced soda sends a shiver down my spine. Oh, how I love summer movies. The 2008 season is no different. Although I can’t afford to see all of these in a theater (who has the time either?), here are a few movies I am looking for this summer.

  1. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Come on! Harrison AND Shia? OH YEAH!)
  2. Speed Racer (I know. Cheesy graphics and anime. What can I say? I’m a sucker for Japanese cheesiness.)
  3. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (Love the costumes. Love the lion. Love the story.)
  4. Wall*E (Another Pixar flick with a cute character? Where do I buy my ticket?)
  5. Hancock (Will Smith as an alcoholic super-hero? That’s a new twist. Did Shyamalan write that? My husband said they should have called it: Captain Morgan. I just love that. )
  6. The Dark Knight (Heath, latex fashions, fast car, angry super-hero..sure, why not?)
  7. Journey to the Center of the Earth (It IS a remake. So is Keanu’s The Day the Earth Stood Still. I am a sucker for classic movies. I sure hope these don’t tank.)

Movies that I have heard lots about, but not really sure if I want to see:Indiana Crystal

  1. Ironman (Ok, Robert. I read your interview in Parade. You are clean and sober. Great. But are you super-hero worthy?)
  2. Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (The first one was good. The second one…not. The third? What do you think? Bring back Imhotep and those amazing abs. Where is John Hannah?)
  3. The Incredible Hulk (I really like Ed Norton. A lot. However, no one can top the cheese that Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno provided in the 1970’s. You can smell the Limburger from here. Ed, I want you to hit me as hard as you can. )
  4. X-Files (We watched Mulder and Scully for a l-o-n-g time. We stopped when that Terminator guy stepped in. I really want this movie to be good. However, I doubt it. Sure hope the Lone Gunman make an appearance.)
  5. The Happening (A Shyamalan movie with a “twist”? You don’t say? My husband says that the only Shyamalan movie that was good was the Sixth Sense. I liked the Village too. Maybe Mark Wahlberg can make this one a hit? I wonder if Mark will have his Calvins in a twist?)
  6. Wanted (Laura Croft on a rampage with Mr. Tumnis? This should be intersting.)

I don’t think so…

  1. Sex and the City (Cute clothes. Shallow women. Gossip. Casual sex. That about sums it up.)
  2. Pineapple Express (Haven’t we had enough of these “Guys that don’t want to grow up” movies? I know I have.)
  3. Vicky Cristina Barcelona (There is something about Woody Allen that grates on me. I think it is his movies. Yeah. That must be it.)Indiana Jones

Honestly, I can’t wait for Indiana Jones the most. Bring on the bull whip and Fedora. I am so there, Dr. Jones! Da da da du, da da dum, da da da du, da da dum dum dum.

    INDIANA JONES – YES – doesn’t get much better than Harrison Ford for sure. Love the open shirt along with the bull whip and fedora….
    PIXAR – just about anything with them is great fun
    Chronicles of Narnia – I need to go back and see the first one – haven’t seen it yet – then I’ll be ready to see this one
