New Movie Reviews

Before I get into this week's new movie review; Due to the mind numbing success of The Avengers, Universal Studios pushed back G.I. Joe 2 from 6/29/12(summer release) to March of 2013 (late winter/early spring release). Universal wants to add 3D to the movie. While the push back is understandable. My question is why a March release? I did a little research on the movies for next summer. I was surprised to see what's coming next summer. Could next year be another block buster summer? (Editor's Note: I still believe it has to do with re-shooting anything with Chad Tatum. Since Duke was suppose to be killed at the beginning of the film.)

Men In Black 3

M.I.B 3 was released on Friday, 5/25/2012. This big budget movie that went to production without a script and the lack luster performance of M.I.B 2 did nothing for the movie. The first thing that went through my mind was that the studio was fast tracking this movie to retain the movie rights. But as I watched this movie to my surprise it was very good. The movie had the same feel and look as the first Men In Black. Josh Brolin playing a younger version of Agent K was perfect. And to my surprise Men In Black 3 has taken the number one movie spot for this weekend.
