While I hopefully will have a jam-packed summer to look forward to, I do plan to see at least a few of the big-budget, popcorn munching, no chance of winning any major awards movies coming soon to a theatre near me.
- X-Men Origins: Wolverine (the backstory to arguably, the most popular member of the gang of mutant superheros… opening Friday. If you haven’t seen the much publicized copy that surely found its way onto the internet)
- Star Trek (the much-hyped reboot of the 43 year old franchise. The trailers look phenomenal… hopefully, as is so often the case, the previews are not the best thing… I’m hoping the delay from Christmas Day to May 8th will be worth the wait))
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (the much delayed sixth movie of the seven book franchise. The final book will be divided into 2 movies. It has been two years since the last cinematic adventure of the students of Hogwarts)
- Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (didn’t I tell you that it was a summer of popcorn, senseless movies)
- Land of the Lost (Will Farrell in an update of the classic 70s Saturday morning series about dinosaurs)
- Up (Pixar’s Latest about an old man who hitches his house to a bunch of balloons and up, up, and awaaaaaaaay he goes. Pixar movies are a must)
- Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (the sequel looks as fun as the original…LOTS)
I probably will not have time to see all of them but will do what I can. I plan to be in one show, help with the realizing of another show, and squeeze in some work this summer. May the summer bring fireworks in the cinemas as well as the sky.
Don’t wait. Guarantee your seat before you go and avoid a sold out show. Skip the box office lines and buy movie tickets at Fandango.com.

I’ve never really connected with the X-Men movies for some reason. I couldn’t even tell you which of them is my favorite, assuming I could remember them all. I don’t think it’s Wolverine though.
I will definitely see Star Trek in the theater, and may even see HP6. As for the rest, I will wait for video, but I probably will see them all eventually.
Up looks good, although the Pixar movies have not thrilled me lately. Finding Nemo and A Bugs Life are still my favorites, along with Toy Story (think we’re supposed to get another one of those soon, although 2 wasn’t that great either) – so how long since those came out? I’m really excited about the new Museum movie also – the first one was a lot of fun!
I think the original TS was released in the 90s… 95 maybe? Yes, I think it has been a few years now that we have been promised a 3rd. I have to go with Finding Nemo as my favorite.
