Last Thursday, Joe gave you fine readers his list of must see and must not see movies for this summer. I’m here to give you my list, so without any delay here is Part Deux of The First Annual EJSIC Summer Movie Preview:
It's like they don't even try anymore.
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time – Um, Jake Gyllenhaal with little to no shirt? Yes please. Even though his accent sounds terrible, maybe I’ll just listen to my iPod while the movie plays.
Inception - Leonardo DiCaprio and Christopher Nolan has to be great right? Right.
Iron Man 2 – Robert Downey Jr. is one of the best out there, and I enjoyed Iron Man. Plus, I am NOT a Paltrow hater, but I hear there’s a Paltrow Punch.
Grown-Ups – It looks like it could be good, as long as I remember that Adam Sandler is no longer Billy Madison and is leaning more towards dramedies rather than straight comedy. Although, I miss the days of drunken penguin chases.
Dinner For Schmucks – Paul Rudd and Steve Carell team up in a re-make of the French film “Le Diner de Cons.” I liked the French version, I like Steve Carell, I love Paul Rudd. I’m in.
Must NOT See:
Marmaduke – Come on. Garfield didn’t work, and I love Garfield comics. Marmaduke, I have lukewarm feelings for already.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – I didn’t see the first however many that have come out yet, I don’t play on starting now. Plus, it’s summer, I want to see some tans.
The Karate Kid – Why mess with near perfection? SWEEP THE LEG!
A Nightmare on Elm Street – No. No. No. No more. Its been done, don’t do it again.
Salt – This looks like 97% of Angelina’s other movies, play a new character already!
MacGruber - SNL is starting to turn skits into movies again… remember Superstar and how that turned out? Not well, my friends, not well.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice – This isn’t a Harry Potter movie.
Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore – Sequels are usually terrible, think of how bad they can be when the original wasn’t good.
Step Up 3D – Are they kidding with us with this? 3D dance movie? Yeah, I’ll pay $9 to think I’m going to get kicked in the face, sounds like a great time.
Piranha 3D – <sigh> Whatever.
