1.Batman Begins-Cant turn down a Batman movie, and it looks like they are going back to the beginning. Christian Bale should be a hit.

2.Fantastic Four-Previews looked amazing, and the Marvel comic movies have been outstanding.

3.Devils Rejects(House of 1000 Corpses 2)-The first movie really didnt have a plot, just blood and guts. This one looks like its going to be good, and Lions Gate rarely disappoints, see the Punisher.

4.Dukes of Hazzard-Has anyone seen Jessica Simpson in that bikini yet?

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith - I have a hunch this is going to put the other two "prequel" movies to shame.

That's the summer for me...everything else is completely secondary to Star Wars, as far as I'm concerned.

To round out my top 4: War of the Worlds, Batman Begins, and Wedding Crashers

Whatever my kids want to see. I'd guess Star Wars, Fantastic Four and Batman Begins are probabilities.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Doug Liman has made 3 great movies already in Swingers, Go, and The Bourne Identity)

Batman Begins (I'm a sucker for Batman stuff. Dates back to childhood)

Star Wars (see above)

Wedding Crashers is a possibilty. The trailer is darn funny.

The two movies I'm really looking forward to are:

Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
Kicking and Screaming (Will Ferrell)...looks absolutely, right up my alley, hilarious.

I resent the remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory -- the original was so cool.

I saw Hitchhiker's Guide and will definitely see Star Wars. Other than that....

I'd kinda hoped the men-in-tights genre had run its course.

Lords of Dogtown

I thought "Dogtown's Z-Boys" was extremely cool, and I detest skate culture. That loathing is probably what will keep me from seeing "Lords of Dogtown." The trailer makes the movie look like a skater version of "You Got Served."

I liked the docmentary and this movie was written by one of the skaters (I am too old for skate culture myself) but I love the time frame of mid 70's california, since I lived there for a bit then and then moved back in the early 80's.

Therefore I'll go... but I haven't seen any previews to sour me yet.

From the previews, it looks like Burton is sticking more closely to the book. As an example, notice the great glass elevator?

Revenge of the Sith
Madagascar (For our little guy)

Maybe one or two more w/o our little man.

Parenting question .... Feedback suggested.

Our little one is a little over two years old. We plan to take him to see Madagascar which would be his first movie at the movies. Is that too young?

I'm not a parent, but I have taken two year olds that I babysat to movies. They were well behaved during the movie. Understand that it is an animated film, the crowd will be full of children, and as a rule, children in theaters are noisy to begin with. Shouldn't be a problem.

It isn't a summer flick, but Kingdom of Heaven looks great.

Kingdom of Heaven was very good, I thought it was well done. (Note: It wouldn't hurt to have some background knowledge of the time, might appreciate it more that way) Is it better the Gladiator? No. Better then Troy? I don't think so, I really liked Troy even though it was inaccurate to Homer's Iliad. While Kingdom of Heaven I would say stayed fairly accurate to the time and events, it is a good movie and I would have to say Orlando Bloom did an excellent job. So I would have to go give it :thumbup: :thumbup: , and it is worth seeing in theatre.

My movies I would like to see..
War of the Worlds
Star Wars
New World
Batman
Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith -- It promises to be the darkest Star Wars yet, but remember that Aniken/Vader is the one who brings balance to the force by killing the emperor and squashing the Dark Side...eventually. And I get to see it two nights before everyone else :thumbup:

War of the Worlds -- classic big budget summer disaster movie...I love those. And the special fx look awesome.

Dukes of Hazzard -- Saw the preview. Burt Reynolds as Boss Hogg is ridiculous and doesn't work at all. Bo and Luke look more like jokesters than they ever were. Rosco doesn't look as clumsy as the TV version. But Jessica Simpson more than makes up for it as Daisy :thumbup:

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Fall 2005) -- I love the Harry Potter series. Goblet of Fire was the best book of the five so far (IMO).

I saw House of Wax over the weekend. I wasn't expecting to like it but I did. Plenty of suspense and a very interesting plot. Paris Hilton wasn't THAT bad either. She was bad, just not THAT bad.

Somehow I picture the "Dukes of Hazzard" movie as being like the "movie within a movie" segment of "Pee Wee's Big Adventure." (Steve Brolin portrayed a James-Bondian version of Pee Wee, Morgan Fairchild portrayed Pee Wee's girlfriend.) Everyone will be more handsome/beautiful/erudite than their real, or in the Dukes' case, TV personas. All of which will serve to drain the charm out of the original concept.

In my own biased crystal ball, I don't see the "Bewitched" movie as having the same issue. ;)
