Terminate On Sight
Terminator Salvation is my most anticipated popcorn flick of the summer
My apologies for the lack of entries for this column, but take a look at the current crop of movies out in theaters and then ask yourselves: â€œCan we blame him?â€ The past few weeks have been the pits. I refuse to see Tyler Perry doing Madea yet again, even if heâ€™s doing his best Ernest impersonation in jail, especially when our very own John â€œJFKâ€ Kennedy warned me that itâ€™s lamer than Tiny Tim. Iâ€™m not a 13-year-old suburban girl, so seeing The Jonas Brothers in 3D sits right next to listening to 808s & Heartbreak again on my â€œthings to voluntarily doâ€ list. And Iâ€™d seen Slumdog Millionaire twice already before the Oscars, so I canâ€™t hop on that post-Academy Awards bandwagon (The Wrestler got robbed of a nomination, I tell you!).
As a new week begins, though, so does an increasingly exciting time at the cinema. Iâ€™m seeing Watchmen tonight, so Iâ€™ll have a full-on fanboy reaction tomorrow (longwinded, you can bet on), and since Watchmen hits theaters this Friday as the first quarter of â€˜09â€™s â€œevent movie,â€ a couple of big summer movie trailers will be attached to its preface. One such preview being a new, fuller Star Trek exhibition, which Iâ€™ve yet to see; the other, this new Terminator Salvation showcase, which is â€œrocking that shit like.â€ Iâ€™m just going to let director McG, star Christian Bale, newcomer-set-to-blow-up Sam Worthington, fine-eyes Bryce Dallas Howard, and only-glimpsed-here bombshell Moon Bloodgood do the explaining. I will say, however, that this has eclipsed Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen as my most anticipated popcorn flick of the summer.
See what you think:
