Summer 2007 Movies!

Yikes! Last year I pretty much could totally have cared less about any summer movies. I saw two, as a matter of fact - Pirates 2 and The Devil Wears Prada. Both were enjoyable, but those were the only 2 times that I made it to the theatres last year. This year is shaping up to be a big summer because there are lots of movies I'm excited about...
  • May 4: Spider-Man 3 I'm less excited about this one. I can probably wait for video, I wasn't that impressed with Spider-Man 2.
  • May 18: Shrek the Third OOO!
  • May 25: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End I know I'll definitely see this one.
  • June 8: Ocean's Thirteen I dont' know how I feel about this one. I was a little disappointed with Ocean's Twelve at first, until I watched it 1500 times on HBO. Now, I kind of like it. I especially like Scott Caan's line, "I will eat your whole head!" I think that was Scott Caan. Anyway, I'll probably see Ocean's Thirteen.
  • June 15: Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer Fantastic Four was awful, except for the fire guy. So, likely this is a "wait for HBO" movie.
  • July 13: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plus, this comes out like a WEEK before the new book comes out.
  • July 27: The Simpsons Movie I have to hear about this one first, but I do love the Simpsons.
Plus before May, there is The Nanny Diaries (I read the book, loved it, but it sounds like Scarlett Johansson isn't going to be enough to get Todd out to see this with me. Maybe she has a nude scene?? I doubt it) and Blades of Glory (can you get a better combo than Will Ferrell and Napoleon Dynamite??).

Anyway. Discuss.

Definitely geeked up about Spider-Man 3. Much more interested in Fantasic Four 2 - I thoroughly disliked the first one, but this looks better.

Maybe no anticipated movie release has left me more conflicted than The Simpsons Movie. I love The Simpsons, can quote them ad nauseum, have watched all of the good years and a lot of the not-so-good years ... So there's a part of me that can't wait to see the movie. (Much like Bart with the Itchy and Scratchy movie.) But there's another part of me that can't shake 2 questions:

1. Can they really make a Simpsons episode that last for 2 hours (as opposed to the standard 22 minutes)? That's 5-6 episodes in length and a much different deal, especially since The Simpsons is such an episodic show.

2. Is it going to suck? The show has been well below its peak and bordered on unwatchable for several seasons. Are they out of ideas? Do the new writers suck this bad? Have they taken every good idea for the last 3 years and saved it for the movie? I don't know.

Other movies piquing my interest: Evan Almighty, Transformers, The Bourne Ultimatum, and Balls of Fury.
