The summer is very important to bring your a game on the big screen, especially for super heroes and A star celebrities. I’ve been trying to keep up with the titles I think are going to be blockbuster hits and trying to compare my thoughts with my brother and my friend Ryan because we got similar taste but we’re also critical of movies.
First I want to mention I consider the summer movies to start on “finals week” from college to start the summer movies all the way till labor day.
First topic is super heroes, they’ve been a great blockbuster hit since the first “x-men” over ten years ago, I’d like to thank David Hayter for being a part of the production of the first two films for making them so great, and have since been making movies revolving the wolverine. I know I’m going to enjoy the new installment of this story but 20th century fox is slacking on that silver samurai costume I saw in the preview. wolverine has been a worlds favorite underdog and even has beaten Superman or “the man of steel” in the films comics even fan arguments. I have to say I’m glad they made a superman movie that didn’t suck, I think it was great but the movie honestly made me mad how stupid, weak and pathetic it made humankind and the military look. Sure Thor (the God of thunder and price of Asgard, for those who don’t know) has mentioned how fragile humans are but recognizes how much spirit and warrior pride is in a persons character and that shows “respect” while on the other hand the man of steel just fell and flew through buildings like the tax payers money didn’t matter and as if the amount of casualties didn’t matter as long as the earth was safe. WWGD? that means what would Goku do? this comparison is accurate, both characters are aliens sent to earth as the last of their race and meant to destroy earth but ended making it their home. Goku didn’t hesitate to pick earth over his race, family nor who he was for the life he has grown to love, he would have taken any threat to earth to a isolated place and whooped some ass. superman on the other hand is just plain superstupid.
I want yo mention Ironman 3 but I can only say it was a great comedy and the kick ass 2 film looks promising, hopefully much better than the man of steel.
Next I need to mention are big cast movies, this means the furious 6, star trek into darkness and this is the end. The furious 6 is the latest installment just before the storyline loops back to movie 3 timeline “fast and the furious Tokyo drift” which was to me a very fun movie to watch because unlike the last two there was some street racing, half naked ladies and lots of explosions and recon involved. There was a lot of cheesy jokes but it made the movie work and the “you will drive fast after the movie” thing is true even if you don’t catch yourself doing it.
Star trek into darkness was great buy unfortunately they weren’t as successful as I would have liked for them to be, the villain of this sequel wasn’t revealed at all. Some fans could guess others didn’t care and just went to go watch it for the sake of being a trekkie (this is was a derogatory word used by star wars fans until they started using it) show up in costume and speak Klingon. No one can tell who the villain is just by watching the trailers because no name is mentioned and the story has been rebooted so no one exactly looks like the “original” characters, otherwise this movie would have been more anticipated and more exciting for movie goers.
THIS IS THE END! This is a must watch movie, it’s not intended for all audiences that’s for sure but if you liked any oh the following: superbad, pineapple express, 21 jump street, freaks and geeks, funny people, I love you man, green hornet and so on this movie will have you laughing from beginning to end. I literally almost blacked out because of Jonah Hill’s lasts scenes. Pretty much it’s the rapture and a funny Seth Rogan twisted way and if you don’t find demons or rape jokes funny then go stay under your rock.
WORLD WAR Z, just saw this as well. This movie impressed me, I expected your typical zombie movie like the ones that have been made since resident evil made zombies way more popular. This movie has enough zombies to want you to keep quite because these zombies are very sensitive to sound. Three fact the Brad Pitt looks like Thor now just throws me off sometimes but he actually did pretty good as a ex-UN agent. His job was to investigate war crimes and such so if chemical warfare was sniffed out by the UN and they happen to stop an organization Brad Pitt’s character was the guy who got the evidence or the info needed to make a solution. I like movies where stealth and intelligence is involved.
Over all this summer has been great, I try to avoid bad movies so I’ll give everyone a heads up in case you don’t already know, after earth and the purge aren’t that great. I think fast 6 is going to be the best movie if kick ass 2 doesn’t smash their nuts.
All in all the summer movies have been great movies I’m looking forward to are Pacific rim, the heat, elysium, the lone ranger, kick ass two and of course wolverine.
