Trailer Trash: The July 22nd Quickie

Hey stargazers. Gotta make this one extremely quick and dirty because my ass is running hella late! IMDb says we have two major releases this week and here they is:

Captain America: The First Avenger This is my most anticipated superhero film of the summer! I expect this to be Batman Begins and/or Spider-Man level of huge. I'm worried being a period film may hurt the box office, but I'm telling you all this is the movie not to miss!

Verdict: Moist With Antici...Pation!

Friends with Benefits I could make all kinds of No Strings Attached jokes here, but they've all been done. I've got mad love for Mila, but not even her smiling face can overshadow a big-screen Timberlake mug. Besdies, if I wait on the DVD, I can truly enjoy Mila in the privacy of my own home.

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

That's all she wrote, folks! Have a great weekend and try to stay cool!

  1. Those are some high expectations for Captain America - did it live up to 'em for ya?

    I saw it Friday, and my answer would be "no." It's an enjoyable flick, to be sure, but I find it too by-the-numbers and bland to stand alongside the best comic book flicks. Not a whole heck of a lot of character exploration to be found here, and just not enough "cool" shit. Weaving was fantastic, but his character was too one-note (and I found the climactic battle to be a downer, too).

  2. I was out of town for a family reunion and haven't seen Cap in action yet. I figured it wouldn't live up to my expectations b/c very little has this summer. The plan is to double up on Capn America & Cowboys/Aliens this weekend. Should make for a fun day.

  3. Agreed with Dylan: those are some high expectations. CAPTAIN AMERICA anticipated to be in the same league of BATMAN BEGINS? Not quite there on the 'huge' factor, but a decent enough film.

    I think you'll like it, though. I had no flippin' idea how they were gonna write/direct a CAPTAIN AMERICA movie and NOT make it come off as a Mega Cheesefest, but lo and behold, Johnston & Co. pulled it off. There's some genuine coolness and cleverness in the film. Anyway, when you get the chance to see it, hope you dig it!

  4. Maybe Batman Begins is a bit unrealistic, but it should at least be up there with Iron Man. I expected CAP would being a Cheesefest until the trailers came out. I was surprised it actually might have some gravitas. Can't wait to see it this weekend.

  5. Captain America is one superhero film I am actually looking forward to. These posters look awesome!
