Trailer Trash: The May 27th Quickie

How can you tell it's the summer movie season? When the new releases are nothing but sequels. Such is the case this weekend according to IMDb. One new release was so anxious to make huge box office strides that it opened yesterday. For those of us not headed out of town for the Memorial Day weekend or not celebrating it, here's what the theaters will have to offer:

The Hangover Part II  The trailers are brief, hitting us with quick comedy jabs. They only reveal is the wolfpack is at it again; but this time the bride-to-be's brother is MIA. Will this be as funny as the first? Unlikely. Do I, or anyone else, care? Hell no. If this is a stinker, we can only blame ourselves for the huge opening box office that'll solidify the 2013 release of The Hangover Part III: The Hangovering. 

Verdict: Moist With Antici...Pation!

Kung Fu Panda 2  I'm in the minority of people who felt Kung Fu Panda was far more enjoyable than it's summer rival, Wall-E. That doesn't mean I wanted a sequel and, like The Hangover Part II, I doubt this will spark the fuzzy, childlike glee like the first did. Unlike HO2, I can wait to find out. My reason? Next time skip the promos showcasing the voice actors, no one cares.

Verdict:  It's Friday, I Don't Want to be Alone.

Whether you're at the beach or the movies, I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend.
