Friday Five: Movie Edition

Okay, so it's summer movie season. This is the time when a lot of movie theatres put out their summer wanna-be blockbusters. I love movies! In honor of the summer movie season, here's my random list of five of the hundred-gazillion or so movies I want to see this summer.

1. Toy Story 3. I'm jealous; my son got to see it last weekend with his BB Bill. Seems like I don't get to go to the movies that much any more. Oh well.

2. The Sorcerer's Apprentice. I'm a sucker for Nic Cage, sarcasm and movies about magic. Seems like this movie will have them all.

3. The Last Airbender. I am a HUGE (read: obsessed) fan of the animated series. I want to see this movie for many reasons. First, I want to see the live-action interpretation of it. Secondly, I want to know what I'm talking about when I blast it for not being like the cartoon. ;-)

4. Despicable Me. Again, from the previews, sarcasm abounds in this animated tale. What's not to like?

5. Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. The first C&D was hilarious, so I'll give the sequel a try. Plus, Neil Patrick Harris and Sean Hayes... C'mon, you know you wanna see it!

Now I ask you, my loyal readers. What movies are you dying to see? Or what movies do you think sound horrendously stupid? Leave me a comment here, or leave me a note telling me you did it on your blog. I'm curious to see what cinematic tastes you all have!

Sigh. I don't have any idea what's out, since we never ever get to see movies anymore. I want to take Daniel to a movie sometime, though. I just need to find one that's appropriate.

I, too, am all over Despicable Me. And Brynna wants to see it too, so we'll probably get there.

Otherwise, I'm not so sure. Really fall (read horror movie season) is when I get all jazzed about movies.

I hear Toy Story 3 makes grown men cry. I'd like to see that. (The audience.) I don't remember if I've seen 2 yet, so I'd have to watch that first, I guess.

I may see Karate Kid just because I love Jackie Chan and the Smith kid. I've heard it's a little lacking in plot, but I'm okay with that, once in a while.

Is Dev Patel in Last Airbender? I think I remember reading that, and when Avatar came out, I told two friends "Dev Pate l is in that." because I thought it was Avatar: The Last Airbender. Duh. Shows you how much I"m into Sci Fi and stuff. Anyway, I hope you love it!!
