If you haven’t checked it out click here to see the first trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. About a year out and I am already beyond excited for some new Batman. This week another comic book icon makes a jump to the big screen, Justin Timberlake unfairly gets to have sex with Mila Kunis, and the 80’s in all its glory comes home on DVD.
These are the movies that were released on Friday July 22nd, 2011
Captian America: The First Avenger – Rated PG-13
Chris Evans stars as Steve Rodgers, a guy who wants to be in the army during WWII. But he is not big enough. Enter crazy scientists who turn him into Captain America. I think this could be the best Marvel Comics movie that Marvel created them self. It looks more serious in tone then Iron Man and Thor which is a good thing. The other good thing about The First Avenger. WUGO WEAVING (Agent Smith in The Matrix Movies, Lord Elrond in the Lord Of The Rings movies) AS HYDRA LEADER THE RED SKULL. I am anxiously waiting to view Weaving as a great comic villain.
Verdict - Come hell or high water I will see the best comic book movie this year opening weekend.
Friends With Benefits – Rated R
Justin Timberlake gets to have no strings attached nookie with Mila Kunis. Life is not fair. This is the same exact deal as No Strings that came out in February. Since this is the second helping of the same premise I do not think this will do very well.
Verdict – I boycott Friends With Benefits due to the fact that I want to be friends with benefits with Mila Kunis.
Box Office Top 5 Movies In The Country
1. Harry Potter And The Deadly Hallows: Part 2 – Rated PG-13
2. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon – Rated PG-13
3. Horrible Bosses – Rated R
4. Zookeeper – Rated PG
5. Cars 2 – Rated G
Harry Potter has taken in $170 Million dollars beating several records The Dark Knight held. Harry Potter owns your money. I wonder how the box office returns will effect the minds of The Warner Brothers executives. Lets hope they stop and do not try to force more Potter.

These are the movies released on DVD Tuesday, July 19th, 2011
Limitless – Rated PG-13
Bradley Cooper takes a pill and then unlocks all of his mind. He is good at everything. That draws the evil attention of Robert De Niro. Limitless has shown Bradley Coopers ability to do something other the comedy and be good at it. Fighting Bobby De Niro doesn’t hurt either.
Take Me Home Tonight – Rated R
Topher Grace and his twin sister Anna Faris (No I don’t see the relation either) are parting on the weekend Grace graduated from MIT. While the critics where not kind to this movie I can’t look past the fact that this was written by some of the writers of That 70’s Show. It should be good for a laugh.
Next week a ton of Sci-Fi fun on DVD, Harrison Ford kicks ass in the old west, and Hollywood kills more of my childhood. At lest Neil Patrick Harris is involved. That’s a good thing. I guess. I suppose? See you next week.
