Summer has yielded some of the best movies of the year. Granted, it’s mostly action movies, but Summer tends to be the premier time to show any movie. I always like to make a list of some movies that I would like to see. It rare that I actually get to see all the movies on my list, but I’m a list maker. That’s what I like to do.
So, here are my Summer movie line up (July-Auguest 2012).
The Dark Knight Rises
No surprise here. This movie has to be the most anticipated movie of the year. From the beginning of Michael Keaton as Batman, I’ve always been a fan. I can’t wait for the latest installment of Batman. I’ve heard rumors that this won’t be the last Batman, but we’ll see.
At first, I wasn’t interested in watching a movie about a Neighborhood watch group, but when I found out aliens were involved. Well, that’s a movie I want to see. Aliens taking people’s skin and these guys are going to protect us…oh boy.
Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry
During my trip, I kept on seeing this one poster all over Europe. Ai WeiWei is dubbed as the “Beijing’s Andy Warhol”. He is an artist who is controversial and motivated to share the truth. In a country where freedom of speech is not part of their laws proves to be a little dangerous and violent. This documentary shares Ai WeiWei as an artist, a man, and a government renegade.
The Bourne Legacy
I’m a huge fan of Jeremy Renner. I just find him to be very believable as a spy. There really not much I can say.
Finally, a movie starring these two fools. It’s perfect time for this movie to come out, since it is campaign season.
Red Hook Summer
I first saw this movie on 3 Guys, 1 Movie. This movie is about a middle class grandson is forced to live with his super religious grandfather. They have a somewhat unconnected rocky relationship.
Yum, yum! In this movie, fixed gear is not over (Portlandia joke). Basically, a mysterious letter wanted my the police (probably dirty cops, if you ask me) makes this one courier the most wanted man alive.
Lawless is “based on a true story” of the notorious Bondurant Brothers. During the prohibition era, the Bondurant brothers are in the bootlegging business in Virginia. This movie is dubbed as a “gangster movie” and I just love gangster movies.
