To view more lists for the Summer of 2012 please go to the Ruthless Roundtable: Summer Movie Season 2012 posting!
Well, better late then never.Â And Here We Goâ€¦
Â 1: THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Do I really need to explain myself?Â After seeing the awesomeness of The Dark Knight back in 2008.Â I think this just speaks for itself, why this would be number 1 of the summer.
2: THE AVENGERS
Yeap, I went from DC to Marvel.Â Finally seeing this cluster of superheroes together after five movies.Â How can you not want to see this?Â Plus Joss Whedon direction.Â Itâ€™s a no brainier.
Now, Iâ€™ve already scene this movie and I must say it 100% deserved itâ€™s grossing and it I did live up to itâ€™s hype.Â I canâ€™t believe it took 5 movies to get here but finally itâ€™s here.Â My question is DC, where are you?Â Bring on the Justice League.
3. MEN IN BLACK 3
Now why MIB3 since MIB2 sucked a bunch of dicks and raped us for our money?Â Simple reason.Â It actually looks good.Â It looks like it can have a good story.Â Plus, time travel.Â Personally, I love a good time travel story.Â Look at the Back to the Future trilogy, Star Trek 4, Terminator.Â Fish out of water stories are fun to watch.Â Hopefully bring us to a point where we can say â€œMIB2?Â When was there a MIB2?â€
4. A CAT IN PARIS
Most of you reading this are probably going what movie is this.Â I never heard of it.Â You might not because itâ€™s an independent French film coming out on a limited release.Â It is an animation about a cat who is a simple household cat during the day and a â€œcat-burglarâ€ by night.Â The animation looks pretty cool; itâ€™s in 2-D.Â Yeap, thatâ€™s right, no 3-d here Pixar.Â But what Iâ€™m curious is how it got over looked this past year at the academy awards for best feature length animated film.
Iâ€™m not sure as my top 5 what this last one would be.Â I can say the remake Spiderman, but itâ€™s a remake after only a few years.Â Granted the Hulk remake was awesome, but I wasnâ€™t crazy about seeing that originally either.Â Will I see the new spider man, yes, but as for a top 5 this summer no.Â I can say Total Recall.Â But again, itâ€™s a remake and I donâ€™t remember much of the first one.Â As for Prometheus, It is Ridley Scott, so that is awesome, but it a prequel to Alien.Â I loved the original but Iâ€™m not the biggest of Alien fans either.Â The G.I. Joe sequal, I donâ€™t know.Â Iâ€™d be fun to see Bruce Willis and Dwayne â€œThe Rockâ€ Johnson be together on screen, however I still havenâ€™t scent he first one.Â And the same goes for Expendables 2, I still need to see the first one.
The Dictator, looks funny, but I was very disappointed in Borat and the horrible movie called Bruno that Iâ€™m actually kinda turned off from see this movie in theaters, and I can wait until DVD to see this one.Â Now, Iâ€™m actually have interest in Ted, it looks like a very funny concept, but it also looks like Peter Griffin finally able to curse on the big screen.Â Will I see it, Yes cause it does look funny, but I can also wait until DVD.Â So this makes for a bad number 5.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a close maybe for number 5.Â It looks fun and kinda original idea.Â What if he really was a Vampire Hunter???Â Hmmmmm.Â Now if it was zombies, then Iâ€™ll go see it in a heart beat.
To Rome With Love
I love Woody Allen and Midnight in Paris was amazing.Â Now I donâ€™t care for Owen Willson, and the characters he usually plays, but in that movie I thought his character was great and fun to watch and I actually cared for him.Â And Woody Allen movies have their own taste on comedy and thatâ€™s what makes each one special.Â Itâ€™s too bad this movie is only having a limited release but I canâ€™t wait to see it.
