It has been an honor serving as your co-co-entertainment blogger this semester alongside Brandon Smith and Ryley Murphy, and although this may be my final blog of the semester, you still get to put up with me for one more.
No, I do not have those graduation goggles (fast forward to 3:48) going on in full force right now, for I will be pulling a Van Wilder and am going beyond the traditional four years.
Am I upset? No. Because it allows me to continue doing what I love.
And now for something completely different.
This is the summer of the blockbuster. Although Mr. December is not attached to any of these, there are still so many movies coming out that will clear out my bank account. I’ll only preview a few, but for the rest, go here.
Release Date: May 26, 2011
Directed by Todd Phillips
Starring: Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifinakis
The boys are back…but this time in Thailand (or thigh-land, as Alan so lovingly says in the trailer) and pretty much following the same concept. Yes, unoriginal, but I know it will be packed with laughs.
Release Date: July 15, 2011
Directed by David Yates
Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint
The final chapter in the movies and books that have defined our generation. Although the trailer is nothing spectacular, since it is the same footage we have seen since they started to tease the first part, I am looking forward to this. The first one ended on a cliffhanger and although it contained no action, I know the second will be bombarded with it.
Release Date: July 22, 2011
Directed by Joe Johnston
Starring: Hugo Weaving, Chris Evans, Tommy Lee Jones
The final movie before the much-anticipated “Avengers” movie comes out…in 2012. Chris Evans is already known in the Marvel Universe as Johnny Storm, but from the footage I’ve seen, I think he’ll make a convincing Steve Rogers.
Release Date: July 29, 2011
Directed by Raja Gosnell
Starring: Neil Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria, Jayma Mays
Yes, this looks dumb and yes, it probably will be exactly like the live action version of Alvin and the Chipmunks, but it’s Neil Patrick Harris. I know he’ll make it good. I still probably won’t see it, though.
