Top 5: Movies of the Summer

Now there will be a bunch of big blockbusters this summer. The Harry Potter series is wrapping up, Johnny Depp is back as Captain Jack Sparrow, Transformers is going to try to make up for the crap it called Transformers II, the super heroes are coming out in full force with Green Lantern, Captain America and X-Men Beginnings, and Speilberg's Super 8. I may see a couple of these...but I am more excited for a couple of others.

The Art of Getting By
I think the title could be a book that I could write. I think I would title it "How to do well and still keep people's expectations low" but kind of the same thing. Also...Freddy Highmore is all grown up, but still looking like a cute little child. I still haven't made my mind up about Emma Roberts...she looks like she may be one of the most entitled young stars out there. She's gives an Aunty Julia vibe but she hasn't earned the right too.

Another Earth
I am not sure if I will love this movie or if it is complete weird mind f-ck. Not sure I would be totally opposed to a mind f-ck. The Sci-Fi think always interests me at the beginning but usually by the end I am breaking it down and critiquing it rationally. Kills it every time.

The Change Up
Soooooo, Ryan Reynolds is in a couple movies this summer. This is like a weird friend version of Freaky Friday, which could be enjoyable. Who are we kidding...Jason Bateman is hilarious and Ryan Reynolds is hot. Gold.

The Help
Pretty sure this preview made me cry, even though it looks like it is also going to be funny. Those are always the best ones...if you can mix comedy and a lot of emotion and still make it believable I will love it. Plus Emma Stone. Love her.  This film is based on the novel...which I am debating reading before seeing the movie. I am afraid it might ruin it.

Our Idiot Brother
Who doesn't have some family problems...I am sure you will be able to relate to something in this movie. Your brother may not have sold weed to a uniformed police officer, but everyone does something stupid once in a while.

There has got to be something in this mix that you would like to see. I would have added Harry Potter, but that would have been too easy. (I am so there...does Harry die at the end like Jesus?)
