Summer movie must-sees

What I'm reading: Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.

I nabbed this blog idea from Mimi.

10 summer movies I’d like to see:

1) The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Saw it. Loved it. Very true to the book. Very dark. And hopeful.

2) Iron Man. I’ve always liked Robert Downey, Jr. I’m excited to his him in this flick. Plus, I love the excitement of comic books turned into movies – when they’re done well.

3) Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I loved all the other Indy movies. I can’t not see this one.

4) The Happening. I’m an M. Night Shamalan fan. I’m a bigger Mark Wahlberg fan.

5) The Incredible Hulk. I didn’t want to see it at first, but Edward Norton is in it. I’m incredibly curious to see how he pulls off Bruce Banner. I’m a Norton fan so I’m rooting for greatness.

6) WALL-E. That cute little robot has already endeared himself to me in just the few previews I’ve seen.

7) Hancock. The ds has already declared this as a must see. He sold the rest of the family by reminding us that Will Smith generally pulls off some very funny, very good movies.

8) Journey to the Center of the Earth. I’m sure it will barely resemble Jules Verne’s classic book, but since I’m a huge fan of his science fiction and read most of it as a teen, I’ll venture out to see Brenden Fraser and this version.

9) The Dark Knight. Batman is my favorite comic book hero. I love a regular guy (a very sexy regular guy) turned justice mercenary. And Christian Bale is just hot.

10) The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Ok, call me campy, but I loved the other ones so I'm hoping this one is good, too.
