    Summer of 2005 Movie Thread

    We all love movies... (I hope) not the same movies though. This weekend the GF might to and see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I also plan to see Wedding Crashers at some point as well. I hear that this new "Wonka" movie will be closer to the book from the last one, and I hear it is a getting great reviews.

    It seems that there are a lot of movies coming out this year... Star Wars, Hitchhikers Guide, Marching with the Penguins, and more!

    What movies do you want to see, what have you watched, and what are your thoughts on some of the 2005 summer movies?

    Batman Begins, the Fantastic 4 and the Wedding Crashers are on my list. I may knock a couple of them out tomorrow with the "2 for 1 sale"

    Batman Begins, was actually suprisingly good, especailyl considering teh other "prequel" that is out now.
    A bit cheesy, but pretty good.

    Don't erally have anything I want to see, it will depend on how hot is is for teh rest of the summer.

    Now that I have a DVD player at home will probably end up watching more movies.

    Wow I'm totally out of what's on the cinemas now... last time I went to one was.... around March.... and I already forgot what I saw... well I remember I was with my girlfriend so I don't care what I "saw"

    I've seen some other older movies though... but not in a cinema... I saw The incredibles, Office Space and Goodbye Lenin! recently though....

    Not a big movie guy, but I would like to see Wedding Crashers, and maybe War of the Worlds. But I hardly ever go out to movies, and it is mostly the GF that watches them at home.

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Mr. & Mrs. Smith = pretty good and worth the money
    Batman Begins = best of the recent batman series; not all cartoonish; worth the money
    Fantastic 4 = horribly disappointing
    War of the Worlds = left a lot to be desired; hold out for a discount theater/cinema

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    I'm a movie snob, so it's no secret that I have been terribly disappointed with this summer's offerings. I am looking forward to Michael Moore's Traverse City Film Fest at the end of this month, though. If I only see one or two movies there, I will certainly feel better.

    Want to see Batman and Charlie & the Chocolate Factory.

    Only movie I've seen this summer is Star Wars (3 times).
