Well Summer is almost upon us once again and it's around this time that Hollywood starts to roll out the movie machine to take your hard earned dollars in exchange for a couple of hours of hopeful entertainment.
I'm here once again to let you know what to spend your money on and what to avoid like the plague this summer at the box office.
This week lets take a look at some of my top picks!
Crank High Voltage
Chelios faces a Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity to keep working.
This is one of them movies that won't make 300 million at the box office but should. Jason Statham is an excellent actor but doesn't get the respect he deserves. If you have seen any of his films then you know your in for a wild ride even if it isn't a Summer Blockbuster. Do yourself a favor and go enjoy this film.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
is based on the events surround the creation, or rather the transformation of Logan into mutant Wolverine.
Quite simple, all the previous X-Men movies made over 1 Billion Worldwide, just go see this movie!!!
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
A population of dinosaurs have survived extinction, living beneath thick layers of ice in a tropical habitat, and are released when the ice thaws.
This franchise just gets better and better. Fresh jokes and a great story are just two reasons to take the kids to this one. A movie the whole family can and will enjoy. Won't get you laid on a date if she has about 6 kids tagging along...then of course with that many kids your not getting laid anyway.
A chronicle of the early days of James T. Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew. Gone are the famous faces of the USS Enterprise, replaced with the younger, more relevent actors who will replace them.
As a huge Star Trek fan I'm very excited about this, on the other hand I'm also scared to death they will fuck this up big time. I suggest if your a fan of this Science Fiction Icon then take the chance and see what happens. If not then just wait for my next pick.
The movie promises to be more battle intensive with the introduction of a few new Autobots and Decepticons. Rumor has it, the entire planet is under thread from Megatron and his evil crew, unless Sam Witwicky and Mikaela Banes, can work together with the Autobots to prevent the Deceptacons from world domination. Megatron isn’t dead as it appears from the ending of the last movie. Megatron, the Decepticon leader. Killed and thrown into the Laurentian Abyss, is resurrected as a Cybertronian tank. Decepticon forces return to Earth on a mission to take Sam Witwicky prisoner, after the young hero learns the truth about the ancient origins of the Transformers. Joining the mission to protect humankind is Optimus Prime, who forms an alliance with international armies for a second epic battle.
Anyone who didn't go see the first Transformers movie in 2007 can now kick themselves square in the ass. This movie rocked and even though I didn't have much faith in Michael Bay, he surpised me on how well he did with the first one.
The second one should be an even bigger blockbuster and for anyone who ever loved the cartoon as I did, these movies are like living a dream come true.
G.I. JOE The Rise of Cobra
Set around ten years in the future, GI Joe is mainly about the rise of the Cobra Organization. The film focuses on Duke and Ripcord’s induction into the G.I. Joe Team and even Cobra Island.
Holy Shit, a G.I. Joe,Transformers and Star Trek movie all in one summer!!! I guess the end will truely come in 2012. But before that happens this is my final pick for must see Summer Blockbuster movies. This movie will be simply awesome. The trailer alone almost made me wet myself. You can't go wrong here. My advice is leave the girlfriend/wife at home and the guys that grew up with this stuff go together. Yeah it might look gay but dammit it's G.I. Joe...Now You Know.
Next week I will inform the masses of what will suck the very life out of you and your wallet.
