2011 Summer Flicks

Summer movie season is soon upon us!

Here's my list of films I'd like to see this summer:

Fast Five (April 29)
Yes, the 5th installment in The Fast & The Furious franchise. What can I say, I like Vin Diesel!

Thor (May 6)
We see most superhero movies, so seeing this one is kind of a given.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (May 20)
Since this one isn't part of the original trilogy and only has Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush returning I'm not sure how good it'll be, but hey, Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow again? I'll take it!

The Hangover, part 2 (May 26)
While we saw the 1st one a month after it came out, we thought it was hilarious and is one we've actually watched multiple times since. Hopefully part 2 is just as good, rather than the disappointment that was Due Date.

X-Men: First Class (June 3)
I'm up in the air about this one, but I'm pretty sure the hubby will want to see it. We'll probably catch it on Netflix though like we did with Wolverine.

Super 8 (June 10)
A JJ Abrams, Steven Spielberg young adult sci-fi adventure. It looks like it aims for the same type of audience that Goonies was suited towards, and Goonies is a classic! Plus it looks fun!

Green Lantern (June 17)
Again, superhero movie. 'Nuff said.

Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon (July 1)
I really don't want to see this one as the 2nd one was sooooo bad, although they did film parts of it in Chicago so I guess I would be neat to see familiar places in the movie. I'm pretty sure hubby will drag me to this one though, lol...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 2 (July 15)
The final Harry Potter movie, and it opens on my old roomie's birthday too! Unfortunately she lives in Dallas now though so I won't get to see it with her. This is a MUST SEE on my list though, which means we'll definitely have someone watch Jay so we can go see it in theaters.

Captain America: The First Avenger (July 22)
Another superhero movie!

Cowboys & Aliens (July 29)
Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig star in this Western Sci-Fi tale. It definitely looks interesting and has 2 great actors starring in it!

What movies are you excited to see or are planning on seeing this summer?

  1. So many good movies coming out!! I'm actually looking forward to pirates. I think it's a prequel to the trilogy. Not sure how i felt about the trailor for Thor, yet we also always see super hero movies so we'll most likely be there. Pretty sure we'll be seeing most of the movies on your list! summer movie season has arrived!
