The only one I know is The Bling Ring, which I saw and hated. I might see Before Midnight or Frances Ha again. Both great films.

I saw WWZ.

Hmm... Spoilers? I promise not to give up the ending.

SPOILERZ BE HERE
Death of the plucky scientist made me sad, because he sure did sound entertaining.

Cell phones are dangerous.

Cardio. Seat belts. Cars.

Fast Zombies.

Have quiet celebrations in order to keep the zombies off your collective back. Srsly. Sound = bad.

Saw "The Bling Ring" at a preview a few months back. I didn't care for it.

The only one that's at all interesting to me is "Monsters University."

The Heat for sure. Lousy name (not that I can think of a better one) but if you have seen the previews and if you can keep up with the banter it has to be f'n funny as hell. For the votes to be so low I'm thinking too few people have seen the previews.

We all know the only reason to see the Bling Ring is for Emma Watson...

I have some interest in all of those plus those by other commenters. The wife, less so.
Probably won't see any this weekend. The local theater has $5 movies (+ free popcorn)all day on mondays.
Usually wait 'til then.

Last time I went to a movie was 2 or 3 years ago. The matinee was $8 (someone else was treating) which is ridiculous so I won't actually go to see any of these.

Iron Man 3. Yeah, haven't seen that yet. We see movies in theaters maybe twice a year. We went to the new Star Trek instead of Iron Man 3. Most likely, we will be waiting until it is available to rent...

I still haven't seen the last Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

Already seen three of them (Bling Ring, This is the End & Man of Steel) and have no interest in World War Z. Just done w/ the zombie genre. Monsters U is the winner for me.

She was the best thing about that movie. I liked it in comparison to any other Sofia Coppola film, but honestly she needs to stop making movies about the "poor rich girl." We get it. It was tough growing up in daddy's shadow on the vineyard.

Superman was a BIG disappointment. About half of it was two indestructible guys hitting each other like Rock-em-Sock-em Robots, to the point where I absolutely couldn't have cared less. And why make it dark? All the other hero movies are dark, so leave Supes light and entertaining. I felt bad fo the little kids who had to sit through all that angst and violence.

Save your dough.

TBH, this is the very first negative review I have heard or read about the new Superman flick. My sister (a Lois Lane fangirl) and best non-local buddy (a hardcore superman fanboy) both were extremely happy with it. My sister went to see it twice, my bestie said that he had "Waited over six years; was not disappointed".

So YMMV.

Also, they wanted the new superman to match the gritty, grouchy batman reboot. I only have one question: When will we see Lobo?


ALSO-ALSO... It has Morpheus from The Matrix as Perry White. AS M-F-n' Perry White!!!

Monsters U was really funny. Went with a group of 20-somethings to yesterday's matinee. Lots of good jokes for the grown-ups and a to-be-expected cute Disney story.
