Some Anticipated Films for April-June 2010

Aside from the obvious tent-poles, blockbusters, and sequels coming out this summer (some movies fit all three bills—Iron Man, Toy Story and Shrek) here are some movies that look interesting or worth a look.

Clash of the Titans
Haven’t gotten around to seeing The Incredible Hulk yet, but heard good things. Did see the original, loved it, and think in the right hands this could be a welcome and thought provoking remake…

Letters To God
The first of these “Church” movies that look like they could be more than Sunday School material… COULD being the key word here…

The Joneses
Could be preachy, but might actually end up being a good statement on… Oh who are we kidding? Materialism is the one evil that America loves to condemn and complain about, all the while being the most materialistic society in the history of the planet…

The Losers or The A Team?
The Losers is the real A Team movie of the year, probably. As a child of the eighties I’ll be seeing the other one too, but this one looks like it has more potential…

Nightmare on Elm Street
So far Platinum Dunes has represented everything that we loath about Hollywood, cashing in on a bunch of needless and crass horror remakes. Of all the 80s horror titles, this one has the most potential and is the most intelligent, but there is little hope for a decent film here…

Robin Hood
Do we really have to justify this one?

Jonah Hex
Its comic book movie meets cowboys. It’s the Wild Wild West meets Hellboy. At least we hope it is…

Knight and Day
I should hate this one for so many reasons, but the director and the trailer have me holding out hope…

  1. You forgot one of the most important! For every man who grew up in the 80's and early 90's watching those killer action movies with bad acting but great action scenes like rambo and such, this August we get to go back to our childhood and watch

    'The Expendables'

    Staring: Stalone, Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Randy Couture, Steve Austin and others.

    In one of the fight scenes Stalone litterally gets his kneck broken during filming by Austin.

    Im sure the acting won't be Oscar worthy but the blast to the past will well be worth it. Check the trailer out at:
