Although the unofficial start of the summer blockbuster movie season kicked of with the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie, June hits us with franchise installments and tent-pole films, week after week. And what better way to start off the month of June than with Captain Underpants and a Latino remake of the 3 Idiots.
DC’s answer to Captain America: The First Avenger, Wonder Woman seeks to do what DC and Warner Brother’s have yet to do since Christopher Nolan left the fold: make a good movie. Buzz on this film, its lead and its director are setting up quite nicely for a critical and commercial win for the beleaguered DCU but I really wish they could’ve kept all of the showing of this movie Women Only for a whole week just to see people’s heads explode.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
I think I missed the Captain Underpants fandom by a couple of years like Yugi-Oh or whatever happened to people that make them think rompers are a solid fashion choice, but since the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise is on it’s fourth movie, why not capitalize on the wave of never ending adaptations. At least this movie addresses the dangers of hypnotism.
Hey! Remember Demetri Martin? The walking embodiment of every indie film to come out of New Zealand since 2004? Well he’s back with another movie project that in no way seeks to stroke his ego. This one better have Liev Schreiber in it as well or I’m gonna be pissed.
There haven’t been nearly as many Latino remakes of forgettable films but if this is the start of a new trend I have some suggestions. Boondock Saints comes to mind, or maybe Sliding Doors… oh SPEED can you imagine Speed but with an mostly Latino cast? Or any Keanu Reeves movie for that matter. What were we talking about again?
This movie seeks to take the “these two siblings are so different” genre and mash it head first into a WWII mystery thriller. I guess this is something that could be exciting but… I’m gonna say it: just go see Wonder Woman.
At first, I thought this was going to be a mockumentary about groupies, like if Almost Famous was just about Kate Hudson and her friends. When I realized that this is like a comedy musical about a couple trying to save their marriage through the therapeutic healing powers of song, I was even less interested. But the cast seems awesome and Fred Armisen is involved so why not give it a go!
Vincent N Roxxy
Another indie movie where beautiful people are in trouble and suddenly thrust into a world of violence that they are surprisingly adept at navigating. You know, the usual.
