2009 Summer Movie Showdown!

Ahhhh…..summer movies!

3 months….no…4 MONTHS of gratutitous action, loud explosions, and mindblowing special FX!!

PLOT??? Feh!

Sheeeeeit, I spend an entire years worth of movie money on just summer movies alone! From May to August -we’re talking $200-300!! And I don’t buy $10 theater popcorn – helll naw Playah! I sneaks mine in Grandpa Freeman-style. Hahaa

and here in Austin, TX lucky bastards like me have the Alamo Drafthouse!

the ULTIMATE movie theater! –  trust me, its an experience like no other – the audience participation is off da chain. The staff don’t wear those corny, corporate logo polos. You get to see  outrageous vignettes from classic B-Movies – AND – before the movie even starts you can get blitzed off of beer and stuffed from freshly prepared entrees!  But i digress…

So this summer lacks a Will Smith  – BUT –  has a Will Ferrell.

And Marvel Comics makes sure to keep a blockbuster on tap every summer from now on! This summer also has mutants, gangsters, all kinds of robots, nazis, flying houses, dinosaurs, and a gay reporter!

So Friday, Dumpling, and I are gonna give our unique perspective on the ENTIRE Summer Movie schedule – of the movies that matter! So without further ado….


Here is – ‘2 Comic Book Guys’

    Transformers is definitely going to take the win for the best movie of the summer…. but I could be a little biased considering Optimus and I have a little thing going on……. You guys did a good job putting the list together though I will admit… and Wolverine is going to be fantastic….
