Movie Previews: 2nd Half of July 2011

The summer movie madness continues as all the major studios vie for our entertainment dollars and the Internet is awash with trailers attempting to whet our appetites for the up-coming cinematic offerings. ComingSoon.Net offers a nifty breakdown by month of all the soon to be released films so we can all get a fairly good idea of how to schedule our time and manage our money. After all, we can’t see everything. Heck who’s got the time and who’s got the money? As a consequence, I, for one, plan on being prudent in making my selection. – Geesh, can you live on a diet of popcorn? Lots of fibre, I guess. – I’m repeating myself, but I think the rating handed out by Rotten Tomatoes is a good indication of the quality of a film. We only have so much time so why not spend it with something we’re going to hopefully enjoy. Who likes to walk out of a movie theatre saying that they would like two hours of their life back. Ha! Not exactly a ringing endorsement of the film but more importantly, in case you haven’t guessed, you can’t get those two hours back. They’re gone, up in smoke, sayonara, kiss’em good-bye.

The following is a random sampling of a few, just a few, ah, four exactly, films coming up in the next couple of weeks. This is odd seeing me include Harry Potter as I have not seen one of the films or read any of the books. Go figure. The others? Two romantic comedies which I hope turn out to be good as who doesn’t like a good romantic comedy. And finally, double oh seven Daniel Craig in a truly weird marriage: science fiction and a western. Go figure again.

After the trailers, I’ve provided links to Wikipedia articles for all four films plus links to the official movie sites. Enjoy!
