Hollywood Help Me!
My last blog promised to turn over a new leaf and believe me it is very hard. Hollywood seems to not want to help me. They just keep on turning out the garbage. For instance Transformers director Michael Bay decided to kill the only black transformer (Jazz he was actually my favorite transformer) in the last movie and replace him with two more black transformers that can’t read and speak in jive. Michael how am I supposed to say anything positive about Transformers when you can’t keep your head out of your ass? Then there is Land of the Lost I do not understand why or how this movie even got made.
I guess all I am saying is that this summer movies are bordering on the side of lame. The summer blockbuster fun started well in May (which does not really count since it is not summer yet) with two movies I enjoyed Startrek and Terminator Salvation I enjoyed both movie because they were well written and the acting was top notch. Since it is June I figured it would be too late to do a review. So that ship has sailed. Now June is coming to an end with the only “blockbuster” this month has been Transformers I do not have to go see this movie to tell you it is lame. It is directed by Michael Bay he does not believe in telling a story or movies with a plot. In this movie there will be lots of running lots of chasing and lots of unrealistic explosions.
What do I have to look forward too.?
Well according to the yahoo summer guide for July and August:
Public Enemies- Looks like a good movie to watch and it has Johnny Depp and Christian Bale in it.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince- I am not a fan of Harry Potter but so far I have enjoyed the movies.
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra – Even though my lame meter is going off on this one, I have to say Ray Parks as snake eyes is a great choice and I will give this movie a chance.
Then there is District 9, this movie looks hot, the website is hot and fun to play with. There is not much about the story out there yet. It does however have this Starship Troopers / Cloverfield vibe to it.
That is what Hollywood has to offer this summer. How can I remain positive when in my mind there is only one movie I even want to see this summer. Lets all go see District 9 coming out August 14, 2009.
