We've already had some winners (Up, Star Trek) this season. What summer movies are you looking forward to? Public Enemies? Bruno? Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince? Inglorius Basterds?

I really want to see Moon. Go, Zowie Bowie, go!

Though I have no idea when it's getting a wide release, I really hope to see Black Dynamite this summer. Seems like the perfect, kick-ass, quote-worthy Blaxploitation flick for summer viewing. Awesome little primer on blaxploitation on that website, too.

So far friend reviews of "The Hangover" have come in positive, and luckily, it's playing within walking distance from me! May have to sneak in a few brews, sit back, and enjoy. ;)

Hurt Locker looks like it's gonna be explosive and intense. I can't say no to the woman who directed Point Break!

I'm interested in Humpday but will most likely just wait for the DVD release.

PS: I'm going to NY next week and going to try to check out the BAMfest and NY Asian Film Festival, wooo! Anyone have suggestions for what to see in the Subway Cinema lineup? http://www.subwaycinema.com/

Wow, looks like "The Hangover" is a hit. Has anybody seen it?

"Away We Go" seemed like it could have been good, but it's getting mediocre reviews.

A summer movie I don't want to see: "The Proposal."

It will be nice when the advertising campaign for that one settles down. If I have to see Betty White grope Sandra Bullock one more time...

Ay caramba, lucky to have only seen ad once for this one, but will definitely skip the movie...

I'm going to try to get into a screening of the new Woody, Whatever Works, tonight, which I'm looking forward to. If I do get in will post a few comments here about it.

I have half an itch to see Public Enemies despite the fact that I think Michael Mann is pretty overrated and especially despite the fact that I hate the look of the digital video technology he's been using on all his films.

Also curious about the new Apatow flick, Funny People.

Of course I can never say no to new Miyazaki, Ponyo.

I've got to admit though, I'm already over this summer's crop and looking forward to what's to come.

The dub of "Evangelion 1.0" is having a limited run and that got Allison Steele to do the voice of Misato again and that makes me very happy. And Spike Spencer is the Shinji we love to hate.

Dead Snow might be cool and refreshing this summer, and there's also a movie called District 9 that could be interesting.

I am looking forward to seeing "Ponyo" and "The Hurt Locker."

Has anybody gone to see Gobots II, er I mean Transformers II?

I know someone who liked the first one and thought that this one sucked. Also, there are rumblings that a couple of the robots are a bit racially stereotypical, a la Jar Jar Binks.

Here's the trailer... Don't trailers usually show all the best parts? I think it would be more fun to rent Calamari Wrestler again...

The trailer for Dead Snow looked really dumb. And how is District 9 NOT just a remake of Alien Nation?

If you're looking for a zombie film...This sounds better than Dead Snow: Pontypool.

I'd really like to see Chere. And the one with Johnny Depp (let's face it, it's the only reason to see it).

Oh, yeah! "Pontypool" sounds pretty interesting -- a new spin on the zombie thing, with a little social commentary on the side. Ooh, it looks like it's coming out on DVD on July 21?

"Public Enemies" with Johnny Depp as John Dillinger opens next week.

Speaking of Johnny Depp, those images from Alice in Wonderland look really quite hallucinogenic.

Speaking of zombies...[Rec] 2 is released to American retail in mid-July.

Also, since I found the film rather flat, I recommend The Hangover only to those who are wearing beergoggles while viewing.

However -- and perhaps this information is only useful to Battie -- "Fat Jesus" had his moments, and the Best Man had the best...form.

I still haven't seen "[Rec]", but I want to. I wasn't going to bother with "Quarantine."

Quarantine is more of an American English redo rather than a remake of the Spanish [Rec]. Worth seeing for two reasons: Actor Jay Hernandez and Actress Jennifer Carpenter -- who is brilliant playing a reporter scared to death. In fact, I don't recall a recent actress -- save Shelley Duvall's performance in The Shining (1980) -- who seemed as genuinely frightened...at least on film.

I saw it in theaters and hated it. I absolutely adore Hernandez and have for years. Jennifer Carpenter was genuinely freaky in The Exorcism of Whoever. But I walked out of the theater with a headache. Between the insane shakiness (that made Cloverfield look steady) and her constant screaming, I just ended up in too much physical discomfort to enjoy the last half of the film. Plus, I thought her screaming retarded when they kept emphasizing that you could avoid detecting by being silent. *shakes head*

All said...why does everyone think I'm perpetually drunk? :( When I have money, it's usually only 1-2 times a month. Of course, becoming a pothead made liquor rather pointless. *snort* Now I am broke, AND I can't smoke pot (even if I had money) cuz my little brother ratted me out in a big mess of family drama. He got his. XD On the plus side, cravings for pot have replaced cravings for junk food. I've finally won the war against ice cream. By accident.

I thought The Hangover looked pretty stupid. The only bit from the commercials I thought was amusing was when whats-his-face kicked the kid's cell phone. (It shouldn't surprise anyone, then, that I've tried to kill the babies in Sims 3.)

You're right, Battie. Just because everyone's dying around you is no reason to fall to pieces. In the beginning, I, too, tried reasoning with my victims that their hysterical screaming, uncontrollable sobbing, gurgling noises, and passing out from the pain (or just plain dying before I've allowed them to) was really getting on my nerves. But, I 've come to realise that there's no reasoning with some people.

> All said...why does everyone think I'm perpetually drunk? [Raises hand] Because you're too high-strung for them to think you're stoned?:( When I have money, it's usually only 1-2 times a month. You only have money one or two times per month? Have you thought of donating blood for money? (I didn't mean to me. Because I won't pay you for it.) Of course, becoming a pothead made liquor rather pointless. *snort* Now I am broke, AND I can't smoke pot (even if I had money) cuz my little brother ratted me out in a big mess of family drama.

By accident.It's nice to know that there is a plus side to addiction. I can't wait to find out what I might substitute blood for, but I doubt it would make vegetarians happy.

> I thought The Hangover looked pretty stupid. The only bit from the commercials I thought was amusing was when whats-his-face kicked the kid's cell phone.<

Actually, I was more entertained by a happenstance find of Ms. Katy "Perry's" Waking Up in Vegas music video.
