Sex and the City 2:
Didn’t watch the show. (Okay, I saw some episodes, randomly chosen by happenstance, didn’t care enough to try to see more.) Haven’t seen the first movie. (I think I saw the end once on TV, and possibly caught a few scattered minutes, but not enough to understand the plot, or make me want to see more.) Won’t be seeing this one either. (I watch enough crap that it is highly possible that I will, at some point, see part of this movie, but it won’t be because I sought it out.)
Prince of Persia – The Sands of Time:
The previews look very full of action, but still I’m just not excited, not chomping at the bit, to see this film. I never played the game it is based on (though I did play the original, long ago), however that might be a good thing since I wouldn’t be able to say the game was better. I’m not going to make special plans to go see this on the big screen, but I will probably watch it when it is available on DVD.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince:
This actually opened Wednesday, and its going to be huge. Millions of people will see it, and I’ve seen quite a few good reviews of it already. I’ve seen the other ones in the theater, so it is quite likely I’ll make the trek to the local multi-plex in order to plunk down my hard earned dollars for this one as well. However, now that I’ve seen how the books end, and knowing that they’ve decided to split the last book into two movies, I’m just not as excited as I once was for these movies. Perhaps the movies will end better.
(500) Days of Summer:
Opening in very few theaters and opposite Harry Potter means that this movie will probably not be noticed by many people, and that’s a shame. (500) Days of Summer is a brilliant comedy that is not a love story. Its a film about a break up, all from the point of view of the guy. I was lucky enough to catch a free screening of this film and I absolutely loved it. I’d almost consider going and buying tickets for it even if I don’t see it again just to support the filmmakers. If this one happens to be showing at a theater near you, I highly recommend it.
