May 4thThis one has the potential to be the best in the series. This is why, Batman Begins took a risk by portraying a "superhero" in a dark manner. In SM3 they straying from the light Peter Parker and introducing one of my favorite characters and storylines from the series, Venom. So they are adding an element of darkness that worked well for Nolan/Bale the latest Bataman installment and two villians that I am excited. Here's the bad news... there is rumor floating around the net that this will be Toby Mcguire's last outing as the webcrawling crimefighter. Two problems: 1. You can't just replace him it would kill the franchise (i.e. Batman series - it took a series restart with new directors, actors, and studio to get that back on track) 2. It's just starting to get intersting, new characters/plot lines - the development of Venom and they eventually Carnage, which is my favorite... So all in all I am really excited. Mos def and 12am showing.
Shrek the Third
Its just one of those deals where you have to go see it. I'll wait a few days or even a week but I'll go see it. Apparenntly Shrek it to be king... and I'm sure there'll be an"addition" the family. Same cast, which is good including Puss in Boots - that makes me happy.
Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End
So Jack is back and is forming an alliance with all of the pirates of the seas including Barbosa againt Davey Jones and the East India Trading Company which has the Former Commendore Norrington as it's newest co-conspiritor. Sounds like they are going to tie up all the loose ends... hopefully ending this love triangle between Jack, Elizabeth, and William, I'm ready to put that whole issue to bed... I've seen some footage and it looks like they have pulled out the stops visually so I think its going to be awesome!
I love the "Ocean's" films! The casting director should get a raise, this has been one of the best cast series of all time. I'll be honest I am a little worried about this one though. No Julia Roberts, no Cathrine Zeta-Jones... But we get Al Pacino as the bad guy. And Terry Benidect (Andy Garcia) switches sides... It has potential, as long as Brad Pitt does as well as he has in the 1st two. His character (Rusty) has made the movies what they are.
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
June 15thI'll be honest, didn't care for the first one and may wait for DVD on this one but it has me intrigued... I do know this, the visual effects look great.
Bruce was good, had a lot of Christian paralells so I'll go see it for those same reasons and Steve Carell is very funny. And plus the whole Noah concept could be really funny.
This is another series where I am ready to get to the bottom of whatever is going on... I imagine that Julie Stiles is going ot have more of a role in the final installment. I hope this fights scenese are asd good as they were in the first one. We shall see.
A good summer for movies!!
