My Summer Movie Schedule

Because somebody asked, here's the list of films I'm planning to see between now and mid-August, and for which I'll write reviews. I'll be seeing them on opening weekend whenever possible.

  • Edge of Tomorrow (late review -- I'm at an event all weekend)
  • How to Train Your Dragon 2
  • Transformers: Age of Extinction
  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
  • Jupiter Ascending
  • Hercules
  • Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Lucy
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Of the films on this list I'm most excited about Guardians of the Galaxy, and most worried about How to Train Your Dragon 2. I loved the first one, and desperately want them to do something new and awesome that I can love just as much, but that's a tall order.

After that, I supposed I'm pretty hopeful for Edge of Tomorrow, and cautiously optimistic for Jupiter Ascending. I mean, I expect it to be a clumsy space-opera, but if it's a GOOD space-opera I'll be really happy.

Anyway, now you know. If there's something coming soon that's not on this list, and you'd like me to see it, go ahead and post that in the comments. I make no guarantees, however. As I said in reply to the original comment, I see movies that fall in the intersection set of "I want to see this movie" and "I have time to see this movie." I don't bother seeing films that don't interest me (pretty much any horror movie, for instance.) Life's too short for me to take ALL the bullets for you guys.
