Only two more days until blockbuster season hits and I couldn't be more excited. Summer is far and away my favorite time of year and this month in particular has a lot going for it. Two of my most anticipated films of the year are set to debut in May with the release of The Great Gatsby and Star Trek: Into Darkness. But May is more than just movies. We've got all the season finales to look forward to....as well as the fact that one of my most beloved t.v. series Arrested Development, triumphantly returns to the air at the end of the month. But maybe like me you're trying to figure out how to bide your time til then. So if Iron Man 3 just doesn't do the trick, you can check out some of these movies I've recently seen. However....being that a lot of these were dollar theater films, not all of them are actually worth seeing. We'll start with the higher quality films first.
SAFE HAVEN - A year ago I wrote THIS POST about Nicholas Sparks films after seeing The Lucky One in the dollar theater. After my dollar theater trip to see Safe Haven I have to admit I'm a little saddened that the movie wasn't more awful!! Okay it was still pretty bad...but far more middle of the pack Sparks (ie Dear John, Nights in Rodanthe) than bottom of the barrel Sparks (The Last Song, The Lucky One) if you know what I mean. Still I have to admit I got a kick out of the fact that Sparks seems to have taken a few notes from Charlie St. Cloud this go 'round....so that alone might make it fit right in between the middle and bottom of Sparks' resume. 4/10
Well, that's all folks. In just two days, we've got big movies coming every single week!!! I can hardly wait! Stay tuned for lots of reviews coming your way!
