YouTube Thursday: Movies I'm Looking Forward To

As you might have figured out at some point, I love movies. Sheryl and I used to go and see a movie almost every weekend back when we dated and first got married. Now? Not so much. A movie has to look really good for us to go see it. But here are two that I'm really looking forward to this summer.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Of course I'm looking forward to this one. I BEGGED my parents to let me see Raiders when it first came out. It had Han Solo in it and ALL my friends had seen it. They finally relented and I got to see it in all its face-melting gory... er, glory.

Things that make me excited for this one:
  • Karen Allen back as Marion Ravenwood.
  • The action
  • Harrison Ford
  • That music
Things that make me leery:
  • The title. I mean seriously, what does that even mean?
  • The humor. I liked some of the humor in the Last Crusade, but some of it got too slapstick. And I thought the way that Marcus Brody was so different from his character in the first one was the worst example of it.
  • Roswell?!?
Iron Man

I also love superhero movies. Loved Spider-Man. Loved Batman Begins. Loved the original Superman, but I had a lot of experience with those characters going in. I knew their origins and their alter-egos. With this one, I know almost nothing that I haven't seen in the trailers and what I've seen makes me really look forward to it. Plus with The Dark Knight coming out as well, it's going to be a great summer.

Now all we need is a babysitter...

I can't wait for Indiana Jones. Interesting enough, I never saw the others in a theater.

Yes, we should all go see the new Indiana Jones movie as a group. That'd be fab!

I am an all Marvel kind of guy, and have liked Iron Man since I was a kid. That said, this movie looks better than the source material. I especially liked the in-theater teaser trailer. Rock on.

And I'm excited about Indy, but also nervous. Just because it is an Indy film, doesn't mean it's going to be good (Temple of Doom)
