2011 Summer Preview Part I

Time for a sneak peak at what is coming this summer and a few surprises that may be  not on your watch list but certainly on mine.  This is part one as I start with upcoming movies for Summer 2011 Yes May is only spring but as a movie goer the summer movie season is heating up.  Here are four categories I broke this list down according to my own opinion and preference but you may agree with me.

May Movies

Expected to be Good

“Thor”

I’ll Wait for it on DVD or Blue Ray

“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”

Got to see it

Two sequels that might not top the first but got to see it “Hangover Part II” & “Kung Fu Panda II” & ‘Everthing Must Go” Will Ferrell newest comedy

Under the radar as probably good movies but will get eaten by the big fishes of summer.

“Bridesmaids,””Something Borrowed.” Two chick flicks that will be good but can’t compete with the big list movies of late spring early summer.  Oh and “Tree of Life” Brad Pitt stop with serious roles you are so much better as a wittier funnier actor, stop it!

June Movies

Expected to be Good

“Green Lantern” & “X Men: First Class”


I’ll wait for it on DVD or Blue Ray

“Super 8” Yes I know it’s Steven Spielberg latest epic movie, but I feel like he is trying to capture “E.T” for a  new generation, I’ll wait.

Got to see it

“Mr Popper’s Penguins” I was a fan of the children’s book when I grew up and feel this will be a good movie for Jim Carrey this year.

“Bad Teacher”  Cameron Diaz plays a bad ass teacher, while Jason Segel and Justin Timberlake just seem like a winning duo to support this movie.

Under the radar as probably good but will get eaten by the big fishes of summer

“Cars 2” Hard to beat original “Cars” but it is Pixar studios. The movie should be fine and good and will probably be up for best animated movie of the year again for 2011In addition “Judy Moody And the Not Bummer SummerI will pass but thanks for the offer.

Look for part II ,July and August movies  down the road as Summer gets hotter.  I just wanted to make this post and talk summer because it’s 40 and rainy in Chicago right now, with snow in the northern suburbs.  Bring On Summer Now!
