ARCHIVE Day 76: Summer Blockbusters

Original Release: May 22nd, 2018

Summer is basically here already, and with it comes movies!

In terms of summer blockbusters, we’ve already got the two biggest hitters out of the way: Infinity War and Deadpool 2, and both knocked it straight out of the park. The only one that still stands a chance is Solo: A Star Wars Story, and after Last Jedi people are more than skeptical.

Aside from those, let’s look at what else we’ve got coming. Courtesy of the release calendar on Rotten Tomatoes (link here), we know we have (among the ones I give even a small shit about):

-Won’t You Be My Neighbor, a documentary about Mr. Rogers which looks pretty good
-Hotel Artemis, which looks kinda neat I guess
-Jurassic World 2, which I’m only kind of looking forward to (and also premiers on my birthday, so ya)
-Ant-Man and the Wasp (which if you’ve seen my post on the Aftermath of Infinity War, you’ll know why I don’t care a whole lot)
-Mission Impossible: Fallout, but I’m biased because that’s my favorite secret-agent/spy franchise
-Christopher Robin, a cute looking Disney film starring the original voice actor for Pooh and Obi-Wan Kenobi

And that’s it. I know there are a ton more movies on that list that I straight up ignored, but that’s because either A) they aren’t my kind of movie or B) I just think they look bad.

These include:

-Slender-Man, which was only six years too late
-The Spy Who Dumped Me, which looks like another trash comedy
-The First Purge, because I’m sick to death of the Purge franchise
-Hotel Transylvania 3, because Adam Sandler and Sony Pictures
-Skyscraper, which just looks like another trash Rock movie
-Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, which reduces my will to live to 0% (aside from the fact that Nicholas Cage is Superman, that’s awesome)

Overall, this summer is looking to be pretty up and down. Some of these movies look really good. Some of them look like complete trash. Hopefully I’ll be proven wrong with many of these, but it’d take a lot to do that.

Oh well. Nothing can be worse than Truth or Dare. And nothing can be as funny as Truth or Dare.
