So early buzz isn't as ecstatic for Spider-Man 3 as it was for 2, so I guess it's okay that the Fobs aren't around to go see it with. And, although I liked 2, I did not like 1, so viewing 3 is not all that urgent.
And Pirates 2 was nothing near as good as 1, so I may be able to get through this summer blockbuster free.
Except there is this little thing called Transformers.
I've been thinking about going through all the movies slated for this summer and in one big long post talking about how sorry I will be to miss them, but it's too sad. No Shrek. No License to Wed (but thurs is still available). No Bourne. No Stardust. No No Reservations (not a double negative). No Ocean's Thirteen. (No Ocean's Thirteen?!?!) No Nancy Drew. No September Dawn (and thank goodness for that). No Paris, Je T'Aime. In fact, all I think I'm apt to see are that robot movie mentioned above and Pixar's Ratatouille (which is a sure bet and maybe if I pay him ten bucks, John Lasseter will give me a job. John?).
Boy oh boy. The summer movie season is upon us.
