My mom and J often have movie dates, because they want to see crap that I am just not interested in, nor is my father. For the most part, I inherited my movie viewing preferences from him.
But the nerds must have rubbed off on me, at least a little bit, because the comic book and adventure movies of today? Me likey.
Here are a few gems that I can't wait to see.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
The sequel was decent, but not outstanding. I'm hoping that they've moved away from some of the gimmicks used in the second film, and just get back to good ole' ass kicking Optimus Prime in the third. I am also looking forward to the new girl...that's right, no more Megan Fox. Maybe this girl can act, and is more than just a pretty face? Hey, I didn't say it was likely...just a possibility.
Also, I have a crush on Shia LaBouef. Even though his last name translates to "the beef." I love him. For reals. That is all.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Also, I have a crush on Orlando Bloom. I love him. And I'm very sad that he won't be reprising his role as Will Turner. That is all.
The Hangover: Part II
And THE movie of the summer?
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
When I finished reading Book 7, I shut the book and said out loud, to no one, "I am so happy." And I truly was. The story was just wrapped up so wonderfully. I am sincerely hoping for that same feeling after seeing this movie.
Honorable Mentions of the summer? Kung Fu Panda 2, Cars 2, and X-Men: First Class.**
**Apparently I do not look forward to seeing original movies, but merely sequels, prequels, and the like. So I'm unoriginal. Deal with it.
