Well, well, well. Looky here. I didn’t go see a movie this past week/weekend and as a result I have nothing to review. In order to stay on schedule I think I will go ahead and post about the newly released and to be released movies I am amped to see in theaters.
Let’s start with a movie that was just opened in theaters this past weekend:
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it hundred more times, I love Disney. I especially love Disney & Pixar together, so it is inevitable that I would want to see this movie in theaters. There hasn’t been a Disney/Pixar movie released that I haven’t seen in theaters to be 100% honest.
I’ve read recent reviews and most movie review websites have rated the film 7-1/2 stars or higher. I am super excited to see it for myself and plan on venturing out tomorrow evening with a friend. Hopefully it will live up to my exceedingly high standards since Pixar seems to nail it each and every time they produce a film.
However, if this movie makes me cry for any reason it’s an automatic loss of a star because I don’t think it’s fair to make adults or even kids for that matter shed a tear at a family friendly movie. I’ve cried at Toy Story 3, WALL•E, & Up. I’m a big softy sometimes but jeez these films really pull at my heart strings.
The next movie opened a few weeks ago, but still strikes my interest to go and see it in theater. Since it has been out so long I might just end up waiting until it hits the $3 movie theater nearby.
Men in Black 3
Men in Black has been a favorite franchise of mine because I remember watching it back in elementary school and thinking that Will Smith was the coolest man alive. Not only was he an amazing rapper (what I truly thought back then) he was kicking alien ass and looking good while doing it. The theme song that they play during the credits has been engrained in my mind ever since because I listened to that soundtrack so many times on my handheld CD player. There was a point in time where I could probably act out the entire movie for you.
When the second film of the franchise came out I was beside myself with joy. I am such a nerd reflecting back on the sheer pleasure I got watching Will Smith chat it up with bizarrely purvey worm creatures. I don’t get the hype of pugs but a talking pug was too cute to resist and the mail room seen when Biz Markie started rapping to the other aliens almost went bananas.
I can’t wait to see this film but for some reason or another other films just keep jumping the line and I haven’t viewed it yet. And lastly, the next movie won’t be out until Summer 2013 but I’ve been waiting for so long already to see this movie it seems like it’s almost here.
I have been waiting YEARS for this pre-quil to come out. It seriously feels like we are finally in the home stretch. Honestly, I wish they would have done a sequil to Monsters Inc., just because I love Boo. But, hopefully this one lives up to my expectations too.
There are a few teaser trailers floating around the internet so you should definetly check this one out for sure.
I will back on track next Monday with a review of Brave.
