Ice Cream Truck 2

Click through to check out the second half of this Summer!

July 3rd

despicable_me_two_ver3“Despicable Me 2″

Directed by: Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin

Starring (the voices of): Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Russell Brand, Al Pacino, Steve Coogan, Ken Jeong

More Gru, more minions, more cute little kids, what’s not to look forward to? This time, Gru gets coerced into consulting for the good guys… let’s see how long that lasts! I’m looking forward to this, I really loved the first one, and I hope this one is just as good!

lone_ranger_ver2“The Lone Ranger”

Directed by: Gore Verbinski

Starring: Armie Hammer, Johnny Depp, Ruth Wilson, William Fichtner, Helena Bonham Carter, James Badge Dale, Barry Pepper, Tom Wilkinson, James Frain

There’s a lot of strange here, to me. It’s a little strange to launch such an old property with such a high-profile film, it’s a little strange to cast Johnny Depp as a native American, and the trailer itself is a little strange. Still, Disney + Verbinski + Depp could = a huge hit.

way_way_back“The Way, Way Back”

Directed by: Nat Faxon, Jim Rash

Starring: Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Allison Janney, AnnaSophia Robb, Sam Rockwell, Maya Rudolph, Liam James, Amanda Peet, Rob Corddry

Not a wide release, but this is one that looks really solid. Directed by the Academy Award winning screenwriters of “The Descendants”, this looks like a coming of age tale with heart and wit. Plus, Sam Rockwell, so….

grown_ups_two_ver2“Grown Ups 2″

Directed by: Dennis Dugan

Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Taylor Lautner, Nick Swardson, Cheri Oteri, Salma Hayek, Steve Buscemi

As I said on TPMP, this movie is the answer to the question “Is there a God?”

Unfortunately, the answer is “No.”

pacific_rim_ver3“Pacific Rim”

Directed by: Guillermo del Toro

Starring: Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Willem Dafoe, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Diego Klattenhoff, Ron Perlman, Robert Maillet, Burn Gorman

“It’s giant robots fighting giant monsters, what else do you need to know?” – Guillermo Del Toro

“Nothing, where do I sign?” – Fogs

turbo_ver2“Turbo”

Directed by: David Soren

Starring (the voices of): Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Dogg, Samuel L. Jackson

Not entirely sold, but I AM a fan of Dreamworks Animation, so I hope they have a winner here.

July 19th

only_god_forgives“Only God Forgives”

Directed by: Nicolas Winding Refn

Starring: Ryan Gosling, Kristin Scott Thomas, Vithaya Pansringarm

The reunion of the “Drive” pairing of Refn and Gosling. “Only God Forgives” looks to be bad-ass, stylish and intense. With Refn at the helm, you know you’ll get a gorgeously directed film. Hopefully the pedigree involved is supported by a worthy story. Early lock for the blogosphere darling of 2013.

______________________________________________________________________

red_two_ver2“RED 2″

Directed by: Dean Parisot

Starring: Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung-hun Lee, Karl Urban, Neal McDonough, Anthony Hopkins

I found the first “RED” to be a decently entertaining, if forgettable film. Of course, in today’s Hollywood, that’s all it takes to warrant a second installment. The cast is great, hopefully they can elevate the mediocre premise and provide a fun movie.

ripd“R.I.P.D.”

Directed by: Robert Schwentke

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon, Stephanie Szostak, Mary-Louise Parker, Marissa Miller, Mike O’Malley, James Hong, Robert Knepper

“Men in Black: The Undead Division”. My knee jerk reaction to this is “Can’t Jeff Bridges find better projects?” I’m sure he has to play the game just like everyone else, and that lands you in some dumb movies now and then. This just looks flat-out bad to me, though.

______________________________________________________________________

conjuring_ver2“The Conjuring”

Directed by: James Wan

Starring: Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, Shannon Kook, Mackenzie Foy, Joey King, Shanley Caswell, Hayley McFarland, Steve Coulter, John Brotherton

Scary stuff! True story: this movie was given an R rating for no other reason than it was too frightening to be released as PG13. How’s THAT for a selling point! Let’s hope it lives up to its press!

July 26th

wolverine_ver4“The Wolverine”

Directed by: James Mangold

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Brian Tee

Hugh Jackman returns to the role that made him a star. We’re due for a good Wolverine solo movie, so I have high hopes. The trailer looks good, but there’s still reason to be skeptical, too.

______________________________________________________________________

July 31st

smurfs_two_ver3“The Smurfs 2″

Directed by: Raja Gosnell

Starring (the voices of): Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofía Vergara, Hank Azaria, Tim Gunn, Brendan Gleeson, Katy Perry, Jonathan Winters, Alan Cumming, Fred Armisen, George Lopez, Anton Yelchin, John Oliver, Christina Ricci, J. B. Smoove, Frank Welker

If I thought the first “Smurfs” was shit, does that make this “Shit, too”?

______________________________________________________________________

August 2nd

two_guns“2 Guns”

Directed by: Baltasar Kormákur

Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, Edward James Olmos, James Marsden, Allie DeBerry

Bank robbery, CIA, DEA, that poster with them back to back with all the money flying around? Ok, you’ve got me… I’m in. LOL Denzel and Marky Mark team up to play cops and robbers, how can that not at least wind up interesting, right?

______________________________________________________________________

three_hundred_rise_of_an_empire“300: Rise of an Empire”

Directed by: Noam Murro

Starring: Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton, David Wenham, Lena Headey, Jack O’Connell, Andrew Tiernan, Callan Mulvey, Ygal Naor, Ashraf Barhom, Andrew Pleavin, Hans Matheson

Ohhh, boy. “300″ was decent, but that was a long time ago now it seems. Not that I was ever clamoring for a sequel prequel anyways… I guess we’re in store for more slow mo battle scenes, with lots of roaring. Only no Gerard Butler!

NO TRAILER AT THIS TIME

______________________________________________________________________

August 7th

riordan-s6-c10“Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” (no official poster yet)

Directed by: Thor Freudenthal

Starring: Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario, Douglas Smith, Mary Birdsong, Yvette Nicole Brown, Missi Pyle, Nathan Fillion, Anthony Head, Paloma Kwaitkowski, Leven Rambin, Stanley Tucci, Robert Maillet

I’m not this movie’s target audience. But doesn’t this look dumb, even if you’re 12? If I have any 12-year-old readers, could you answer that for me? Dumb, right?

______________________________________________________________________

August 9th

elysium“Elysium”

Directed by: Neill Blomkamp

Starring: Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, William Fichtner

Iron Man meets the caste themes of HG Wells’ “The Time Machine”. Big fan of  Blomkamp’s first film, “District 9″, and of course, Damon and Foster are excellent. I have high hopes that this will be this year’s late summer surprise!

______________________________________________________________________

planes“Planes”

Directed by: Klay Hall

Starring: Dane Cook, Stacy Keach, Brad Garrett, Carlos Alazraqui, Roger Craig Smith, Teri Hatcher, David Croft, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Cleese, Cedric the Entertainer, Gabriel Iglesias, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, Brent Musburger

Please just tell me there’s no Mater. I can handle anything else except seeing that bucktoothed, redneck, dumb-ass tow truck again.

______________________________________________________________________

We're the Millers“We’re the Millers” (no official poster yet)

Directed by: Rawson Thurber

Starring: Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, Ed Helms, Jason Sudeikis, Nick Offerman

I guess it’s too early for anything on this one, but it’s scheduled to open wide in mid August, so. From IMDb: “A veteran pot dealer creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico.”

So there you go.

NO TRAILER AT THIS TIME

August 16th

kickass_two“Kick-Ass 2″

Directed by: Jeff Wadlow

Starring: Aaron Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Robert Emms, Morris Chestnut, Lyndsy Fonseca, Lindy Booth, Jim Carrey, Clark Duke

Sweeeeeeeeeet. The sequel that everybody wanted, but nobody thought could happen. Kick Ass and Hit Girl are back for more! This time they’re joined by a nearly unrecognizable Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes. One of my most eagerly anticipated movies of the Summer!

______________________________________________________________________

PARANOIA“Paranoia” (no official poster yet)

Directed by: Robert Luketic

Starring: Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman, Lucas Till, Embeth Davidtz, Josh Holloway, Domenick Lombardozzi, Amber Heard, Julian McMahon, Richard Dreyfuss

Worth watching just for the pairing of Oldman and Ford, alone. Apparently too early for any marketing materials, though. From IMDb: “An entry-level employee at a powerful corporation finds himself occupying a corner office, but at a dangerous price: he must spy on his boss’s old mentor to secure for him a multi-billion dollar advantage.”

NO TRAILER AT THIS TIME

______________________________________________________________________

to-do-list-movie-poster“The To Do List”

Directed by: Maggie Carey

Starring: Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Bilson, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Scott Porter, Connie Britton, Clark Gregg, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Donald Glover

Aubrey Plaza stars in what seems to be a sex comedy, revolving around some kind of sexual “To Do List”. It’s not a good sign that this movie got bumped from Valentine’s Day. Maybe they thought the competition from “Safe Haven” would be too much!

______________________________________________________________________

August 23rd

mortal_instruments_city_of_bones“The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”

Directed by: Harald Zwart

Starring: Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, Jemima West, Kevin Durand, Robert Maillet, Lena Headey, Jared Harris, Godfrey Gao, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Aidan Turner

The latest entry in the battle to be Twilight’s successor, “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” is the first adaptation to come out of “The Mortal Instruments” series of Young Adult novels. Judging by the trailers, it has a certain Twilight quality to it, alright.

______________________________________________________________________

youre_next“You’re Next”

Directed by: Adam Wingard

Starring: Sharni Vinson, Joe Swanberg, AJ Bowen, Nicholas Tucci, Barbara Crampton

As if “The Purge” weren’t enough home invasion for one summer, here comes “You’re Next”! I give the edge to “You’re Next” though, because they have the scarier masks. And we all know that scary masks are the key to a good home invasion movie!

______________________________________________________________________

worlds_end_ver2“The World’s End”

Directed by: Edgar Wright

Starring: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman

The acclaimed team of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite. In “The World’s End”, a group of friends gets together to relive an epic night of drinking they had decades ago, only to find themselves as humanity’s last hope. Given the track record of this trio, I’ll be eagerly awaiting this one.

NO TRAILER AT THIS TIME

Well, there you have it folks! The second half of the 2013 Summer slate! There’s one other week left in August, but they’re not very high-profile releases. It’s always been my contention that the Summer Season stops mid August, so this is where I’m wrapping it up. We’ll cover that last leftover week when we get to the fall.

So what did you think of these? Any here that you can’t wait for? Any that look like total dreck? What do you think of the second half of this Summer as a whole? Loaded? Barren?

Let’s hear it! What do YOU think?

  1. Quite a few there interest me, but nothing getting me hugely excited yet. Elysium, Only God Forgives and You’re Next are probably the ones I’m most expecting to enjoy. Decent summer though, certainly better offerings than last year.

    • Hmm. You know? I think I might agree with that on the average… the average movie this summer is probably better than last. Last year DID have the Avengers though, and unless Man of Steel winds up being the Superman movie I’ve always wanted, I cant see anything topping that.

      Meanwhile, Elysium, Only God Forgives and You’re Next all look decent. I have high hopes for “Forgives”, “Drive” was awesome! :D

  2. Pingback: Maniacs, Zombies & Billionaire Playboys | filmhipster

  3. Kick Ass 2, The Way Way Before and Elysium look great. Not sold on Pacific Rim although I have a feeling my husband is going to force me. RIPD is just WTF?? And The Conjuring has Tyson from Head in a Vice written all over it :)

  4. Theater: Iron Man 2, Star Trek 12, Man Of Steel, Despicable Me 2
    Maybe Theater: Monsters U., Pacific Rim, Red 2, Elysium
    Netflix: Now You See Me, Wolverine 2, 2 Guns, Kick-Ass 2

    • Sounds about right. I’m hoping Pacific Rim kicks so much ass you have to bump it up to the definitely theater category, but I can see where you’re coming from across the board…

      • It’s more of an indication of release date complications than movie expectation. By mid-July it’s harder to get to a theater on the weekend. August is almost impossible for me.

        Definite interest also in Paranoia and The Conjuring. Almost certainly Netflix watches, but I just don’t know enough about them yet.

  5. Gatsby, Star Trek, Man Of Steel and Elysium are at the top of my list. Must see. No excuses. No exceptions.

    Second tier goes to Iron Man, Only God Forgives, Now You See Me, & After Earth.

    Then there’s the ones that will depend heavily on the reviews. If they’re great I’ll go for it, if not I can see myself missing them. Also largely depends on what my movie partner feels like on a given week: Lone Ranger, Pacific Rim, World War Z, White House Down, The Way Way Back, Hangover 333, Fast Six Hundred And Twelve, etc.

    There are several indie films that are scheduled to come out this summer (at least in some locations) that will probably end up taking precedence over many in that last group though, like Fruitvale, Frances Ha, Shadow Dancer, and whatever’s hot from Cannes this year.

    Hadn’t even heard of 2 Guns before, but I can possibly see pulling a weekday matinee for that one. One of those guilty pleasure type things.

    • Yeah, 2 Guns does look like that sort of flick, let’s hope its enjoyable. Gatsby, Star Trek, Man Of Steel and Elysium are all worthy of top tier. I’m not sure if Gatsby would get me out to the theatre if I wasnt blogging, but I am looking forward to it.

      Sad to say, I just saw Iron Man, and it kind of is a second tier film. :( Very disappointing.

      I dont have an easy access Indie theatre, so those movies are usually catch at home candidates. Blog or no. Wish it was different, but that’s where I wind up!

      • Yeah, I kind of started worrying about Iron Man when Paltrow was named “most beautiful” a little while ago. It got me wondering whether the publicity machines might be over-compensating for the film.

        I can see how Gatsby might not be your cup of tea, but Anna Karenina made my top ten last year, so I’m thinking that I might be closer to its target demographic. LOL!

        Finally, there ought to be some way that we can use your lammy nominations as leverage to get an indie theater built near your house!

  6. “As I said on TPMP, this movie is the answer to the question “Is there a God?” Unfortunately, the answer is “No.” LOL

    Looking forward to many of thsese, especially Only God Forgives, The Conjuring and Elysium. Watched an extended sneak preview of Turbo last week and it was really fun. Oh, and I hate Mater too. IT SUCKS.

    • Yeahhh, sucks that Adam Sandler keeps making movies :roll:

      Mater is my least favorite animated character ever. How bad a cartoon character do you have to be to be hated? It’s a CARTOON!! LOL Terrible, terrible character. LOL

      Glad to hear Trubo has promise. ;)

  7. Alrighty Fogs, here we go. 1) First Lone Ranger, hit or flop? I’m thinking flop. It’ll be more John Carter than Pirates.
    2)Grown-ups 2 , man… I know you feel the need to watch anything and everything for your blog, but we readers will forgive you if you pass on this one.
    3) Only God Forgive. Will this just be Drive 2? And if it is, will that mean people will go nuts for it again, or deride it?
    4) R.i.p.d. = w.t.f.???
    5) Planes; you know you’re excited.
    6) Kick Ass 2. This is one of your most eagerly awaited films? What if I told you that the first one sucked? You probably thought it was good, but you were holding off until you heard my opinion on it to formulate your own better. So I am here to tell you that the majority of people are wrong and that kick ass is terrible, so you no longer need to be excited about this one!

    • 1) Lone Ranger = mid sized hit. Disney invested too much and has too much influence not to be able to at least resonably fill seats. That said, at this point I dont see it catching on and becoming some huge, runaway success, so… mid sized hit. 2) I’m going in, Ian. Its what I do. LOL. That said, I will NOT be watching the first one. ;) 3) At this point, the blogosphere seems ready to embrace it. So as long as Refn delivers, this looks to be that movie of 2013 that audiences dont go to, but bloggers worship. LOL 4) RIPD DOES = WTF, yes. :) 5) Planes. Not. 6) You’re off on that one, Ian, the first Kick-Ass was a ton of fun and a great slant on the superhero craze. ;) I still eagerly anticipate it!

  8. And my thoughts on the second half of summer:

    The Lone Ranger: Even putting aside Johnny Depp, this hasn’t looked good to me.

    Pacific Rim: I’m thinking pure popcorn flick. Probably not any smarter than Transformers, but probably just as much fun as a spectacle.

    Turbo: Looks terrible to me.

    R.I.P.D.: There’s some wit in the trailer, but I don’t reallly expect it to be enough to sustain the actual film.

    The Wolverine: Looks all right. Hopefully it’s better than the previous one (which admittedly I haven’t seen yet, but I’ve certainly heard about it).

    300: Rise of an Empire: I thought the first one was laughable.

    Elysium: Has some big potential. Great high concept, a director who has shown he has talent, and talented stars.

    Planes: Haven’t seen the Cars films, so I’m sure to just wait on this (though I’m certain that the Cars films won’t be essential knowledge for this). Still think it’s weird that this is officially Disney, not Pixar.

    Paranoia: Sounds interesting, and like you say, good cast. Hope to see some promotional material for it soon.

    The To-Do List: I think it’s worse that they haven’t come up with a trailer that doesn’t emphasize Valentine’s Day so strongly. Looks like marketing is in free-fall.

    The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones: I’m not expecting greatness, but at least it looks like it has a bit more potential than Twillight — if nothing else, like I told Terrence, it doesn’t look like the girl is falling in love with the demons.

    • I think Pacific Rim will be smarter than Transformers if for no other reason than its hard to be as dumb as Transformers. :lol:

      Wolverine Origins was pretty bad, but I got a decent cable watch out of it. Of course I was expecting it to be the worst movie of all time, so… Anyways, not to be mistaken as an endorsement, its still bad.

      If you thought the first 300 was laughable, you’ll have no chance with this one.

      The first Cars is fairly good. Stay away from Cars 2 at all costs though. LOL

      In “The To Do List” ‘s defense, a lot of late summer movies havent released promotional materials yet (See Paranoia, above), so what I was able to grab was essentially pre-bumped from Valentines Day material. If they were a NEW movie coming out in August, I wouldnt hold not having a trailer yet against them ;) So…

      • Yeah, I’ll catch “Origins” eventually, just to not have a comic-book movie as a gap in my viewing resume, but I’m not expecting anything good. :)

        Cars 2… noted, definitely. But if I don’t watch it, I’ll never be able to give a fully informed Top 10 on Pixar. :D

        And yeah, I don’t intend to even try to watch “before 300″. One of these days I’ll probably watch The 300 Spartans, though, just to see what can be done with the story when it’s not Miller/Snyder.

  9. I’m glad somebody mentioned 2 Guns! Yeah Sure, I will agree on one thing: The plot might be, in fact, it is predictable, repetitive, and generic, but call me crazy, but I think the main casting between Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg is fantastic and admittedly spot-on! Plus Mark Wahlberg giving us more of his humorous side as he know he’s going for a buddy-comedy-action-thriller-mixed-combo, and especially with these two main stars, who DOESN’T want or like THAT?!?!? I am very excited for this movie! So excited that it’s #1 on my Anticipated Summer Movies To See! Can’t Wait!
    I did see the last 30-45 minutes of the original Kick A** on TV so I know what I’m getting:Strong Strong Redundant Cursing Language(some even said by HitGirl) and Bloody Violence(some acts of violence done by HitGirl as well)!! So maybe I’ll just RENT the film instead! Not high on my list, but not low on my list either!!
    Oh By The Way: I like to grade that movies based on what I see in the previews! I guess you could say I am grading the previews, and, honestly, I guess that’s what I’m doing!! So that’s why you I’m putting grades!!!

    Here is my list of my “Top 10 Anticipated Summer Flicks:
    10). After Earth-B- I’m very skeptical with this film, but it could be entertaining or poorly developed and boring!
    9). R.I.P.D.- B- This looks like Men In Black Meets Ghostbusters! I liked them both! Especially Men In Black! I think the humor that Jeff Bridges gives to his role is spot-on and very funny! He could, the humor he brings to the film, and maybe even the bizarre story could elevate the film to make it a strangely goofy entertaining film! But, like always, Ryan Reynolds looks bored! In. Every movie he plays this unexciting, unoriginal, bored-out-of-his-mind character with these tired looks and weak personalities! And again..he seems to be doing it again…it seems like he doesn’t even WANT to be in the film and even worse, it looks like he’s NOT even having ANY FUN filming these movies that he’s in, even in THIS film! He probably IS having fun, it’s just his looks make it seem like he’s not enjoying his time, the filming of this film, and even himself!!! The role he plays is something that any other actor could play-besides Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe.
    Oh well..anyway…hopefully it’s still strange goofy, fun

    8). Pacific Rim-B- I’m very skeptical about this! but the end of the preview with the robot using the submarine as a baseball bat to kill another robot! Now that was AWESOME…VERY VERY AWESOME!!!!
    7). Now You See Me-B- A magician-heist-mystery-action-thriller???!? That would be really cool too see! I like seeing magic and I like action thrillers!
    6). The Hangover Part III-B- I haven’t seen the original Hangover yet! Okay, so I’m 16 and my parents haven’t let see it just yet, but now my dad is willing to see it AGAIN, this time with ME! Hopefully I’ll be able to see today or tomorrow! I can’t wait! Do you have any advice for me about the first film? If you could share some advice on what I should expect from seeing The Hangover that would be great! Thanks!
    5). Monsters University-B Let me clear something up first! I though that Monsters Inc. was silly and too childish for me! Based on the first three(or how many other previews we’ve seen from the movie) it also looked more silly and almost are-you-kidding-me-eye-rollingly-childish as well! But now after the new preview came out, it changed my views on this film and actually(I am laughing right now as I am typing is out!) makes me excited to see this film! Look, I am one of the few people who actually liked Brave, sure it’s NOT AS great as the Toy Story Trilogy or The Incredibles and it DID get really silly/childish in the middle(I mean, come on, a girl turns her mother into a bear..A BEAR!!! Really?!? C’mon Pixar? You can do better than that can’t you?!?)
    So, in the end, let’s hope this Pixar adventure is what we hope for it to be: A fun wild entertaining ride!
    4). Despicable Me 2-A solid B grade- Minions And More! If they’re was only a new film trailer were they don’t show just one specific clip from the clip and call it a trailer that’s 2 1/2 minutes long!
    3). White House Down-B+
    I know! I know! I actually thought Olympus Has Fallen was what it seemed to be: A Completely Predictable Cliched Generic Disappointing Mess! I hope this White-House-Down-takes-hostage-with-military-weapons-and-explosives is better than Olympus Has Fallen! Yep. Olympus Has Fallen alright! Fallen down to a predictable cliched disappointing mess!
    2). Fast & Furious 6- A
    The fifth film is the only one I’ve seen in the Fast & Furious series and I loved it a lot! It’s a dumb, fun, cheesy, preposterous film that’s actually really entertaining!!! I hope that is what the new and sixth one offers!!!
    1) 2 Guns- A
    See my comments above!

    There is my list of all of the films I am looked forward to and anticipating to see this summer! I saw the original Percy Jackson film when I was 12 and I liked it and I still do, it’s just after seeing the film a second time, the film dragged on a little but..so yeah…AS exciting and entertaining as I had though of when I when I experienced it the first time in the theater, but this one I’m very skeptical about! I will admit this, the new one DOES look pretty dumb and silly, but it might be an entertaining film for me, but who knows!!!

  10. I didn’t necessarily HATE Grown Ups! I laughedmore than a few times and it really did look like the main cast WAS ACTAULLY having REAL fun filming the film and THIS FILM too as well as having fun hanging out together and enjoying their time, if only we could enjoy our time seeing the movie, that would be better! Not a total dud, but not great! I would have to give Grown Ups a C+ or a C-! So I would give it a C-
    Although, Grown Ups 2 DOES look like a BAD DUD!!! Besed on what I see and what I’ve heard, I will give Grown Ups 2 a D+ for now!!
