Summer Movies 2011

Just a quick list of the movies I'm excited to see during the summer. I know some people already disagree with me. This list is in order of release dates.

Thor - The Marvel take of the god of thunder. I'll be there in a week!

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Strange Tides - Taping the energy and fun of the first film, all without Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom? Sounds good.

X-Men: First Class- It's the X-Men! And it looks like an X-Men movie! This one might be a the new how to for X-Men movies! (See X-Men Origins: Wolverine for the "what-not-to-do" lesson)

Super 8 - This one looks like E.T. meets Cloverfield and I do love that kind of stuff.

Green Lantern - I would not be exited if it wasn't for the extended trailer released a few weeks ago. Nice save.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon - I find the less I look into this, the more I excited I stay. I'm going to stay with that.

Another Earth - A new one for me, but it's the story of the discovery of an alternative earth and is being compared to the level of Moon. You tricky comparers, comparing to Moon!

Captain America: The First Avenger - I was less excited, now I'm excited. I'm like a roller coaster of emotions!

Cowboys and Aliens - Stop making fun of the title! Both are things we want to see!

Rise of the Planet of the Apes - The trailer looks cheesy as all get out, but it has gorillas attacking helicopters and chimps sneaking into the capital.

Conan the Barbarian - I'm not sure how excited I am for this, but if it's anything like the Kurt Busiek comics I read a few years ago, it should be pretty good. Plus, Conan would fit right at home in a Savage World game.

I know these films all fall into the same type of films, but the summer is my time to enjoy them. You artsy film lovers get the fall and winter. I like my summer days full of superheroes and space odysseys. Plus, if you don't like any of these, odds are you're going to Harry Potter anyway and that will keep you talking forever.

If you think this is bad, wait until you see me 2012. Avengers, Spider-Man, Batman, Star Trek...Bad news for those close to me.
