Between now and the end of the year, we’ll see some of the biggest films on the 2012 docket get released, including the conclusion to the “Twilight” Saga, “The Hobbit”, and “Django Unchained”!

“Hope Springs” is a sexagenarian romance/sex comedy starring Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones as an elderly couple who seek counseling in order to resurrect their stagnant marriage. They travel across the country to visit a renowned author and counselor (played by Steve Carell), and begin the arduous process of working out their intimacy issues.
It’s as awkward as it sounds, but it’s also very comical. In the hands of these three talented individuals, “Hope Springs” winds up a very funny, romantic and well done movie.
The Men in Black are back, and they’re up to their old tricks. Battling aliens, zapping people’s memories, and having witty exchanges between one another. The Earth is imperiled, and this time in order to save it, Agent J (Will Smith) has to travel back in time to work with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin).
For people who are fans of the first two, this movie should deliver what you’re expecting – it’s pretty much a healthy dose of “More of the Same”.
It sets the bar for itself low, jumps over it easily, and then happily accepts the “Hey, ok,” that most audiences are bound to give it.
I didn’t have high expectations for this movie, I have to confess. The marketing campaign seemed completely focused on the Steve Rogers / Captain America origin story. How many times did I have to see that weird, CGI skinny Chris Evans getting beat up in an alley before I began to wonder what they were hiding from the rest of the movie? I truly began to suspect there was something wrong with the post-Captain America-transformation part of the film.
Nah. Nope. Not really.
“Captain America: The First Avenger” is a really solid, fun Superhero movie. It won’t crack my top ten in the genre, but there’s nothing for Marvel/Disney to be ashamed of here. It’s a fun summer movie, does justice by the comic book character, and serves to further set up the upcoming “Avengers” movie (as if it needed it.)
