Guaranteed Flop: Postal – This project suffers from the double smooch of death because 1) it’s based on a video game and 2) it’s written, produced, and directed by Uwe Boll.
Rip Van Winkle Hit (sleeper): Kit Kittredge: An American Girl – Stars Abigail Breslin, which, in a summer with relatively few kiddie films, is probably enough to drag tens of thousands of young girls – with their parents in tow – to the theaters.
3 Movies I’m Looking Forward To:
Completing this exercise made me realize how little I pay attention to new films coming out because quite a few names on the soon-to-be-released movie list made my clap my hands in anticipation.
Indiana Jones 4 – Seeing Indy return is kind of like watching Michael Jordan make a comeback but since Spielberg remains at the helm I’m inclined to think Indy 4 will be more like Michael Jordan’s first comeback rather than his second.
The Dark Knight – Admittedly, some of my interest is for Heath Ledger’s final role but mostly I just want to see what kind of magic director Christopher Nolan has produced in his second Batman film.
Hellboy 2 – I liked the first Hellboy film but now that Guillermo del Toro has gone a little more serious with his follow-up, I really like where this one could go.
