Super 8

With the two cinematic heavy hitters backing this film prominently displayed at the top of the poster (I’m talking about JJ Abrams and Steven Speilberg of course), Super 8 looks to be an instant summer blockbuster. According to the film’s tagline, on June 10 “It” arrives. I have no clue what “It” is, but I’m pretty sure the mysterious aura surrounding this PG-13 action/thriller is just what these two masters of suspense want.

As with any film featuring Speilberg and Abrams, I’m expecting two hours of pure geek euphoria. I am guaranteeing a few shout-outs to various cult pop-culture classics, a sufficient amount of on screen government secrecy, as well as at least one nerd (probably that kid in the center of the poster) who learns to be an ass-kicker instead of an ass-kickey. Yeah, I’m not sure if “kickey” is a word either, but don’t let that deter you from going to see this extremely anticipated film.

Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer

Disregarding whatever is means to be “Supermegatotally thrilladelic”, the upcoming family film Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer looks like it will be filled with (hmm what’s the opposite of bummer)…awesomeness? Based on only a thorough analysis of its poster, of course, it looks like Judy Moody will be overflowing with amusement park fun, adventures with Aunt Opal and Stink, as well as a heaping portion of preteen girl power!

While Judy and her innocent, childish antics may fool the average child and his/her parents, I can totally see around all of Miss Moody’s purposefully deceptive lies. With only the quickest look at her t-shirt, I realized that Judy is not so innocent after all. She’s a full on carnivorous shark killer! If you’re okay with watching the zany antics of a shark murderer, then by all means go see Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer this weekend. It opens in theaters June 10.
