Decent summer so far but nothing truly great yet. Waiting for Dark Knight which was the only movie I was anticipating for this summer season.

So two people actually went out to see The Fall.

I've never even heard of it.

I'm reading up on it now and it looks interesting.

The Fall
I'm sure it's gone from the theaters by now. It must have lasted about a week...I got my butt to the local fancy schmancy "Sundance" movie theater the same week it opened, knowing how fast it would vanish. Very visually stunning but oddly enough, I liked the real-world story with Lee Pace and the little girl in the hosptial more. The rest was just window dressing.

PS, Barbados Slim is the reason I even knew that movie existed. Thanks! :andorian:
Thanks for the shout-out. I agree with you, that the real-world stuff with Lee and the little girl who must've been only four or five was better than the fantasy. It looked amazing though.

Well, I saw Speed Racer today at my local dollar theatre. Not a bad movie, actually. From the previews the film looked like it would really be terrible, but I felt like it wasn't. Now maybe if I saw the movie at full-price, I may think twice about the film. The movie had a lot of potential, and it was entertaining. It was a bit cartoonish-- and slow moving at times. But the characters really brought out the movie-- especially Speed's kid brother and the chimp. (I forget the names ) And the chick who played Trixie was eye-candy, also...
I, too, saw SPEED RACER at the dollar theater and mostly agree. It was pretty entertaining.

I hope people who had an interest don't forget about Hellboy 2 just because TDK is out. It suffered a mind numbing 70% in its second weekend, for obvious reasons--TDK, and not because it was bad and had horrid WOM.

Its going to have that monkey on its neck as a worse drop than '03 HULK and it doesn't deserve it.

Agreed. But I think it's going to quickly get buried, with X-Files coming out next week which will likely take the second spot under Batman.

Honestly, whomever decided to release Hellboy the week before the biggest movie of the Summer needs to be thumped. HARD.

There was a week a while back, I think the week after Indy 4 where it seemed like nothing "major" came out.

But, heck, a week or two earlier for Hellboy and would've stood a better chance. But it was completely set-up to fail this week. Any movie was.

Oh well.
