Top 20 Most Anticipated Films of the Summer

 

The Summer movie season is on the horizon. It’s the season where the big budget blockbuster productions come into play, and this year is no different. Once again, the Summer season offers a fair share of winning choices among a backdrop of sequels and remakes. One thing I noticed was that a majority of my favorites seem to be taking place during the earlier months, leaving the later part of Summer with a hangover from all of the money-making explosions that surround the season. Below is my list of twenty films that I am dying to see, in number of importance. While the official first day of Summer is June 20th, the Summer movie season to me has always been May-August. Four big months of knock-down, drag out mayhem that usually offers its fair share of yearly favorites when I do my countdown in December.

Top 40 Films of 2011

40.Sherlock Holmes : A Game of Shadows – Nowhere near as good as the first movie, but some of the better things was the way they ended this movie and made you wonder about a 3rd movie. This one also had alot of action, but something was missing with the fights. Rating – 6.5/10

39.Red State – I am still not sure whether to call this a horror movie or an action movie. Neither genre really fits this movie and for that i give Kevin Smith credit. Not only for sticking his neck out there and making a movie that he isn’t known for, but for also creating what might be a new genre. Rating – 6.5/10

38.Bag of bones – Stephen King’s adaptation of the book by the same name has alot of similarities mixed in with some minor differences. The only thing i didn’t like about this adaptation is the fact that the ending was totally changed around. With that aside, it’s a pretty good mini series to watch on a rainy day. Rating – 7/10

37. Children of the Corn : Genesis – Definitely the best “Children of the Corn” movie since the original. This movie sent the saga into a totally different direction and breathed new life into the franchise. I particularly like how we finally get to see the infamous “Man who walks behind the rows”. Rating – 7/10

36. Tower Heist – This movie was supposed to be Eddie Murphy’s comeback into R rated comedies. Instead, it showed us that the supporting characters like Matthew Broderick and Casey Affleck stole the movie. I found this movie very surprisingly good despite a drawn out ending. 7/10

35. Scream 4 – I seem to be one of the only people who actually liked this movie. Sure, it wasn’t good enough to make it into my top 20, but it was good enough to be the 2nd best of the series. It also started a new trilogy that i am looking forward to seeing where it goes. My only advice – Kill one of the main three characters. Rating – 7/10

34. 30 Minutes or less – Jesse Eisenburg showed us once again that he is a comedic force to be reckoned with. Throw in Aziz Ansari and Danny Mcbride and you have a non stop comedic action film that kicks so much ass. Rating – 7/10

33. The Thing – The Thing definitely should’ve been made these days with the CGI technology that they did. I believe that this is even better than the original and it sets up as a great prequel heading into the original. Rating – 7/10

32. Harold and Kumar 3D – In my opinion, it’s the greatest 3D movie ever made. This film utilized everything that 3D film is about. I do hope that they make a 4th and final film to close out this great series. Rating – 7/10

31. Hall Pass – Very unrealistic, but very funny at the same time. Owen Wilson stars in a comedy about taking a week off from marriage to do whatever he wants. Only in a Farelly Brothers movie could you come up with an idea this unbelievable. Rating – 7/10

30. Fast five – Best action film of the year. Bringing The Rock on to be the FBI agent chasing Vin Diesel and Paul Walker was a genius move. This was the 2nd best film of the series in my opinion and i think it shows alot of promise for the upcoming 6th film. Rating – 7/10

29. The Mechanic – Lots of action packed thrills in this edge of your seat film starring Jason Statham. Jason stars as a contract killer who goes through all of the methods of killing a person and getting away with it. Great for you action lovers. Rating – 7/10

28. Drive Angry – I don’t usually like many Nicolas Cage movies, but this flick definitely restored pride to his film list. This is an even deeper story than the trailer lets on. Rating – 7/10

27. Horrible Bosses – Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day made such an amazing comedic trio in this film about getting revenge on the people who make our lives a living hell. Colin Ferrell is particularly funny as a douchebag who has no ill will about firing people for personal reasons. Rating – 7/10

26. Hangover 2 – I admit, not as good as the original but funny none the less. They took alot of things from the first movie and made them even better. Early rumor is that a 3rd and final film is coming and i for one welcome it. Rating – 7/10

25. Wrecked – A great film that not too many people know about. Adrian Brody is a man involved in a car crash who wakes up to find that he can’t remember a thing about it. The story started off slow and then picked up. It’s pretty impressive that 90% of the acting in this movie is done by one guy. Rating – 7.5/10

24. Rise of the planet of the apes – This movie was surprisingly done well and shows us how the apes took over. The CGI alone, makes for some of the greatest effects ever seen on film. Great prequel done to the top of the limits. Rating – 7.5/10

23. The change up – I remember seeing this before it even came out to theatres and i have never regretted it since. Ryan Reynolds has shown us that he can do everything, but i wish he would stick to comedy. Jason Bateman is probably the most underrated actor that there is. Rating – 7.5/10

22. The Dilemma – The very first movie that i saw this year and it didn’t disappoint. This shows you how important it is to tell the truth in every facet of life. Vince Vaughn, Winona Ryder, Kevin James and Jennifer Connelly star in this film about a lie gone too far. Rating – 7.5/10

21. Just go with it – The best film that Adam Sandler has done since “Click”. It makes it even easier to forget about “Jack and Jill” when you have a great family comedy like this. I also love the comedic team of Adam with Jennifer Anniston. Rating – 7.5/10

20. Sucker Punch – A virtual mindgame of fun. This movie really made you think about how real everything is that you see. It showed us that we all have a world inside of us that we escape to when things get rough. Plus i am a personal fan of the female costume (wink wink). Rating – 7.5/10

19. Bad Teacher – This film had alot of crude humor that honestly surprised me. Cameron Diaz stars as an immature teacher who does her job all for the paycheck and changes her attitude when she meets a new teacher (Justin Timberlake). Rating – 7.5/10

18. X men first class – I had alot of fears about seeing this film because of how bad they screwed up “Wolverine”. I am glad i saw it however because they did a pretty good job of telling origin of each of the X-Men. They even added a couple of things that were pretty cool. The only thing i didn’t like was “Angel” being a female. Rating – 7.5/10

17. Kill The Irishman – A very good story of a mob-run Cleveland in the 70’s. Danny Greene lives through quite a tale of his rags to riches story. The is one of my highest recommendations for the year as i feel everyone should see it. Rating – 7.5/10

16. Contagion – This movie was probably the biggest scare of the year for me. It shows you just how easily diseases are spread among human contact. This also has one of the biggest all star casts that i have ever seen like Matt Damon, Laurence Fishbourne and Jude Law to name a few. Rating – 8/10

15. 50/50 – I love the characters so much in this movie. From Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a cancer patient who always lived with zero risks to Seth Rogen as the caring but brash best friend. A great flick for anyone who wants to be lifted. Rating – 8/10

14. Insidious – The best horror/suspense movie of the year. This movie had alot of things that messed me up on the inside. It is scary to think that a couple’s child is being suspended in a coma by a demon that wants to take his soul. When you finally see the demon it doesn’t disappoint. Rating – 8/10

13. Limitless – Possibly the most original movie of the year. Bradley Cooper takes a serious turn as a man who takes a pill that lets us use 100% of our mind. The possibilities are endless until he runs into a little trouble with the pills. Rating – 8/10

12. The Muppets – When i heard that The Muppets were making another movie i was psyched. This film totally delivered and brought back that nostalgic feeling that we all had as children. I teared up during the singing of “Rainbow Connection”. Rating – 8/10

11. The Lincoln Lawyer – One of my early favorites for film of the year. The book is a little better because it adds more to the amazing character of Mickey Haller, but the movie did a good representation of making the words come to life. I definitely recommend it for any courtroom thriller fans. Rating – 8/10

10. Take me home tonight – This is one of my favorite comedies of the year. I always love when they come out with an 80’s nostalgic flick like “The Wedding Singer”. Topher Grace has been great in anything he has done (except Venom) and i look forward to see where his career goes from here. Rating – 8/10

9. Thor – This was always one comic movie that i never thought they would make. It was done very impressively and i have to say that it is Tom Hiddleston that is the driving force in this movie as Loki. Rating 8/10

8. Pirates of the Carribean : On Stranger tides – I had little faith in this movie originally because i thought “At worlds End” was the perfect way to end it. However, when i watched this film i quickly fell in love with Jack Sparrow again as he tried to locate The fountain of youth. Rating – 8/10

7. In Time – This was probably one of my biggest surprises of the year. Justin Timberlake is really making a name for himself when it comes to good films. This movie showed us that he can do action just as well as he did comedy. Rating – 8/10

6. Bridesmaids – One of my favorite comedies of the year showed us that girls can rule in comedy. It makes me wonder how much longer Kristen Wiig can last on SNL with great performances like this one as the jealous friend who feels like her best friend is being taken over by another. Rating – 8/10

5. Friends with benefits – A cute little flick that had the same premise as that horrible Natalie Portman/Ashton Kutcher flick. This film does it so much better with great performances by Justin Timberlake and the always sexy Mila Kunis. However, it is an amazing performance by Woody Harrelson that totally steals this movie. Rating 8.5/10

4. Straw Dogs – It’s funny how many people never gave this movie a chance. I seem to be the only person who saw it and loved it. The thing that was the biggest shock to me was how much gore there was in it. Very well acted with a great story told. Rating – 8.5/10

3. Captain America – The 2nd best comic movie of all time (in my opinion). I had my doubts about Chris Evans playing “The Captain” but i have to admit that i was wrong. This movie is full of action and has one of the biggest shocking endings of the year. CANNOT WAIT for The Avengers. Rating – 9/10

2. Moneyball – I LOVED this film so much. Brad Pitt gives the performance of a lifetime as Oakland A’s manager Billy Beame. A man who is risking everything to create a new system on how baseball prospects are judged. This was easily one of my ten favorite films of the year. Rating – 9/10

1.Warrior – The perfect film in my opinion. Two brothers who come from different sides of the tracks enter an MMA tournament and each have their own reasons for winning the one million dollar purse. Tom Hardy is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors. Rating – 10/10
