Geek Summer

Category: Opinions

So, I’m looking forward to a bunch of geektastic movies this summer.  There are just so many, and I really hope that at least a few won’t suck.  I’m almost certain the X-Files sequal will be awesome, because, well, Mulder and Scully rule at everything. Dark Knight should be great, I just hope they cut back on the “shaky camera” during fight sequences.  I mean, Christian Bale’s not unskilled, a fact that could have been used better in Batman Begins.  I loved Hellboy, Guillermo del Toro totally knows his stuff, so I’m pretty sure Hellboy II will rock.

I really hope Ed Norton’s Incredible Hulk doesn’t suck.  The cast is solid, I just hope they tell a good story without going crazy.  Aside from The Italian Job, Edward Norton hasn’t done a bad movie.

I’m not sure why Indiana Jones is coming back.  Harrison Ford is like, 80 by now.  Is Indy going to have to save time for regular meals so he can take his medications?

I love Robert Downey Jr. and all, but I just don’t know about Iron Man.  I just… don’t… know…

    I ran into a lot of nerds today who told me that Iron Man was awesome. Let’s go see it when I get back.

    Hi. I figure that there’s no non-awkward way to say that after viewing TAL, I did some google-ing and came across your blog. So that’s kind of out of the way now and I hope this isn’t too weird or intrusive. I just thought you were pretty cool, wanted to say “Hi” and nerd out over movies a little. 🙂

    Anyway, I’m also a part of the throng of nerds who think that Iron Man is awesome; so I hope by now you’ve had a chance to see it. Robert Downey Jr. makes the movie. He simply is Tony Stark. The only downside to going to see Iron Man was the Indy trailer that preceded it. It somehow managed to make Harrison Ford look older than he actually is. I want that movie to be amazing, but between Grandpa Ford and the track record for George Lucas revisiting classic characters — chances are it’s going to be painful.

    I’m with you on Hellboy II, by the way. Between del Toro, Mignola and Ron Pearlman as HB, I can’t imagine it being a let down.

    “Aside from The Italian Job, Edward Norton hasn’t done a bad movie.”

    Have you seen “The Illusionist” ?
    In my opinion that was pretty bad or at least I don’t think he wasn’t playing what he’s normally good at. I have high hopes for HULK!

    I think you should give Iron Man a chance, if you haven’t already, tho.

    AND, I just recently saw TAL episode. So, Hello!
