Mark your calendars - Geek Movies & TV

Edit: Not enough sleep last night. I completely forgot the movie that was the INSPIRATION for this post. I have added it now.

Lots of awesome stuff coming up this summer. Here are some of my favorites (to be followed by more posts in different categories).

May 20th - Pirates 4 comes out (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides). I can't not watch it, though I wasn't thrilled with the third movie. It's hard to make sequels that live up to the original. It seems like we aren't hashing the same old story over again, which will be a nice change. I might not see it in 3D, though, the trailer indicates that there will be a lot of swords thrust out at the audience and someone might lose an eye.

June 17th - Green Lantern premieres, and as a Ryan Reynolds fan, I have faith. After they aired the extra footage at Wondercon, I've been even more positive about it. I'm not sure who OK'd that first teaser trailer.

July 8th - Torchwood: Miracle Day makes its debut on Starz. I'm so thankful for this reboot, I can't even tell you. I'm so glad the series didn't end with Children of Earth. That would have been just terrible. Jack, I've missed you!!

July 11th - Eureka and Warehouse 13 premiere on Syfy. I read a couple of articles that said Warehouse 13 was the most popular Syfy original show of all time. Don't get me wrong, I like the show, but that surprised me. It has stiff competition, like my beloved Eureka. (sorry for the old pictures, I couldn't find new promos)

July 15th - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II. This was the original inspiration for this post and I totally forgot it the first time around. I'm very excited for this one, obviously, especially considering that Part I was so good, and that was the camping, low-action part.

July 22nd - Captain America premieres during Comic-Con. I can't decide whether that's the best idea ever or the worst. I sure know a theater in the gaslamp district where every show will be sold out. I have been skeptical about the Avengers movies (aside from Iron Man, of course), but after Thor ended up being pretty gosh darn great, I have a much more upbeat attitude going in.

July 29th - Right after Comic-Con, we finally get to see Cowboys & Aliens. I have my free promo shirt from the last convention! Come on, cowboys fighting aliens, James Bond and Indian Jones? There is no way this movie could be terrible. In Harrison Ford I trust.

What are you looking forward to this summer? 


  1. Yes to ALL of the above. I really think we're pop-culture twins.

    To add: HP7, Part 2; and X-Men: First Class (I have hopes for the saving of a franchise ...).

  2. I can't believe I forgot Harry Potter. It was the original inspiration for this post. I have added it now!!

    I think X-Men: First Class has potential too. I have my fingers crossed.


Comment nicely and with tolerance or be deleted!
