May Movie Flowers
Iron Man 2-5/7
In this sequel to 2008’s Iron Man Tony Stark fights some other people who also wear metal outfits. Or some jazz like that. As big budget blockbusters go this looks pretty cool. I love the cast: Robert Downey Jr. (of course), Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Mickey Rourke, Saumel L. Jackson, Paul Bettany & Garry Shandling. However I had to watch the 1st movie about 3 times before I got through it because I kept falling asleep. So I think I’ll wait for the Blu-ray. The posters are awesome though. P.S. This is already out and making bank in the UK.
Bonus: Follow director Jon Favreau on twitter.
Robin Hood is an action retelling of the story by director Ridley Scott starring Russell Crowe. Scott has directed Crowe in a lot of movies including Gladiator so many expect this to be very good. I’ve loved Crowe for years & it looks interesting so I’ll be at the theater opening weekend for this one.
Letters to Juliet-5/14
From IMDB: A physical therapist (Queen Latifah) falls for the basketball player (Common) she is helping recover from a career-threatening injury. I’m not sure on this one. The plot makes me want to watch Love & Basketball again.
As a huge SNL fan, you’re probably not surprised that I’ve been flipping out over awesome this movie looks. Plus Val Kilmer (with pony tail) is playing the villain. Just awesome. Go here to watch the SNL sketches.
Sex and the City 2-5/27 (Thursday)
I love, love, love Sex and the City. Many complained that the first film was depressing but I thought it was great. This one looks like over the top fun.
Bonus: Go buy Carrie and Samantha’s dresses now.
Survival of the Dead-5/28
This is the new George Romero film which is a sequel to Diary of the Dead. I liked DOTD & thought that it was cool that Romero was trying something different. Reviews of this have been very bad but IMHO even bad zombie movies are fun. You can already watch it streaming on Amazon.
Bonus: Follow Romero on twitter.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time-5/28
I’m not gonna lie and act like I know or care what this movie is about. I mean just look at Jake Gyllenhaal. He is super hot in this. Go here for more pics of Jake.
