It's Summertime 2009!

Every summer is a big deal for movie goers. There are always a few I look forward to seeing, but this year seems exceptional. Thank goodness I’m having a yard sale this weekend because I will be spending oodles of money on movies during the next few months. So, if you’re interested, here’s what is on my personal must-see list, by release date, and keep in mind that May is considered part of the summer movie season.

ANGELS AND DEMONS – May 15 – Loved the Davinci Code so on to the next big story, right?
THE BROTHERS BLOOM – May 29 – Looks creatively hilarious.
UP – May 29 – The kids and I never miss the summer Disney/Pixar.
MY LIFE IN RUINS – June 5 – It’s set in Greece, any questions?
AWAY WE GO – June 5 – One of my most anticipated…John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph…looks beyond fabulous.
500 DAYS OF SUMMER – July 17 – Looks different than anything else I’ve seen, and I love that.
MY SISTER’S KEEPER – June 26 – Will be sobbing from start to finish but I don’t want to miss it.
HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE – July 15 – Yaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!
G.I.JOE: RISE OF THE COBRA – Aug 7 – Because I was a kid in the 80’s and watched this cartoon daily.
JULIE AND JULIA – Aug 7 – Amy Adams blogging about cooking and Meryl Streep as Julia Child…I’ll be first in line at the first showing. =)
TAKING WOODSTOCK – Aug 14 – Most people who have known me well call me a hippie at heart…nuff said!
POST GRAD SURVIVAL GUIDE – Aug 14 – Being a fan of Gilmore Girls it’s nice to see Alexis Bledel get a shot in her own leading role.
THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE – Aug 14 – I haven’t found a trailer for this yet, but just the story alone looks amazing…based on a novel, which is usually a good sign.
THE BOAT THAT ROCKED – Aug 28 – Radio dj’s introducing rock to Britain in the 60’s…AWE(wait for it)SOME!

Of course my most anticipated movie of the year isn’t until November 20, but that’s another post for another time!

Sometimes I wonder how we are friends since I have only heard of one of these movies and could never spend oodles of money at the movie theatre....Happy viewing--and maybe save a good chic flick for your visit to MN! :)
