    The summer movie season got an early start with films like The Day after Tomorrow, Shrek 2 and Troy..but lets just say the Summer Movie Season really starts this friday.

    This is the thread for talking films, love em, hate em.

    What are you looking forward to? whcih film would you throw in the trash without a second thought?

    Lets take it two weeks at a time...so we don't get to far ahead.

    First opening up this week:

    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

    Perhaps you've heard of this Harry Potter Kid?

    This is one of the handful of films I'm really looking forward to. The trailers look beyond crazy cool. I think this film will lead the Potter Posse into dark and deep places.

    also out now is:

    The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi.

    KR "aka Undercover Beener" and I talked about this one.

    Good luck finding a place to see it around here but if the chance finds you...take it.

    Next Week Films Opening June 11, 2004

    This is a big week in terms of sheer volume of film hitting screens.

    The Chronicles of Riddick (Aka Pitch Black 2)
    Vin Diesel returns as Riddick, the escaped convict who can see in the dark, this time caught up in a war between planets.
    *yes I'll be seeing this. I like bad sci fi action flcks. Plus Judi Dench's nude scene is worth the cover price (kidding....or am I?)


    Garfield (Aka The Parent Money Trap)
    The comic strip comes to the big screen with Bill Murray providing the voice of the famous flabby feline, Garfield.
    *The sad part is I just depise Garfield and Jennifer Love Hugetits....but Henry wants to see it and I'll take him and then have my mind wiped later.

    The Stepford Wives (Aka The Dream I had last night)
    Nicole Kidman stars as a woman who moves to the suburbs with her husband and discovers the secret that's turning the town's wives into compliant robots.
    *Uhhhh no real interest for me here, did like the original...it's a rental.


    Napoleon Dynamite

    In a small town in Iowa, it?s not easy to be a dance-loving, leisure suit-wearing, ninja-worshipping outsider like Napoleon Dynamite.
    *sounds like a good flick. But I doubt I'll get the chance. so it'll be a future rental I look forward to.



    Thoughts?

    (oh and I finally saw Kill Bill Vol 2 yesterday...very good very dialog heavy film...but I love that so it was great)

    The only one on that list I'm seeing is Harry Potter 3. With the rising cost of seeing a movie, you have to pick your entertainment very carefully. Though I really enjoyed The Day After Tomorrow. That may be one I eventually buy on DVD.

    Harry Potter is what I want to see from that list.

    Don't foget Incredibles later on this year.

    Never saw Pitch Black (waits for Deadpool to flames him again for not seeing another movie on his 'list to see') so it doesn't matter if I see Chronicles of Riddick. I am still pissed off at Vin for not doing XXX II.

    I didn't see Pitch Black until just a few months before my hospitalization, and I"m not a horror fan but I loved that movie. I am anxiously awaiting the Chronicles of Riddick.


    PoA, as you all know is high on my list since I will be seeeing it 3 times Friday (reference to Hawkie's talk about rising ticket prices....like that effects my moviegoing. Further Debt, here i come!)

    My anniversary (three years! OMG!) with the ladyfriend is Friday, the day POA premieres. We're both big fans so we'll be attending the first showing in Roseville (I love Fandango!).

    Spider-Man 2 also looks sweet. I remember battle lines being drawn summer of '02 over Spider-Man being better than AOTC or vice versa.

    Chronicles of Riddick looks awesome, and so does the video game, so I'm going to rent Pitch Black to get the story.

    I didn't forget any movies. only two weeks at a time. lots of movies...must pace selves.

    Congrats to Joe first. Like LDV said...She's put up with you this long?...give that girl a medal.

    I wont blast ya for not seeing Pitch Black Dev...I know lots of people that haven't seen it. and not all liked it.

    It's not a great movie, but I like it's style. The first was Sci Fi horror. This one's suppose to be just Sci Fi...and the third (if they make one) is suppose to be...something else so the director/writer says.

    Potter 3 is going to be huge. I'm not sure if I'll even get to see it friday. I hope so.

    Sounds cool Dead.

    Maybe Pitch Black should be a movie for viewing for the Film Club meeting

    Nah don't hate the player hate the game. I'm happy for the lucky bugger.

    he could make it up to me by getting some mouse ears (not nads) with Deadpool on them though.

    Yeah, I am just josh'n KR, just ENVY I guess. ;) Besides Dead's "nad's hat" with Deadpool on it, KR, can you take some pics of the theater and other stuff down there? If you do get a chance to go to mouse land, it would be cool if you could get some pics of Star Tours. Particularly of C-3PO and R2.

    Y'know I honestly can't remember the last time I saw Artoo and Threepio in Star Tours. With Cathy I always backdoored all the rides with her disability.

    I'm hearing they've gotten alot more strict about it now, but I think I should still qualify for the Special Assistance pass and will give it a whirl.

    I'm hoping to go directly after work, hoping it's not sold out.

    in an odd note I got asked to see harry potter on a date....which I had to decline. (with a very nice girl...which makes me wonder why would a nice girl ask out Deadpool?....oh yeah worlds coming to an end)been a strange day.

    oh well I'm kickin it old school watching my borowed ROTK dvd extras.

    Now if only I had a naughty nurse to come take care of me....NO LDV PUT THE COSTUME AWAY!!

    I just got back from seeing Harry Potter.
    It was really good. Of course there were a few scenes they left out that I would of like to seen.
    But it was still great. What made it better.... I went while the kids were in school... :D

    Going at 1 made a difference.. it wasn't packed.. there was no line waiting to get in.
    But there was a line at 3:30 when I left.
