The summer movie train wreck has begun.

In other news…

I went and saw X-Men 3 tonight.

It was nearly as bad as I expected it to be.

Even the action scenes are kind of a sad affair, the one thing this movie was supposed to have going for it. You don’t end up really caring about the characters by the end of it, and the story is pretty damn weak all in all.

So in other words, it’s a summer blockbuster through and through.

Millions will go see it simply because they’ve invested so much into the previous movies… and the comics and characters themselves. I worry that it will simply mean more formulaic trash coming out in the future until they truly kill the fans off.

Not that I have room to speak, really. My comic collection is a sad affair of a couple Sandman anthologies and Lenore.

It didn’t stop me from giggling upon seeing the trailer for the upcoming Ghost Rider movie though. I mean… c’mon. Nicolas Cage?

I may go see it just for the absurdity of it all.

So basically… the short-list of movies I’m actually looking forward to at this point:

Cars we’re going to go see for Danie’s graduation. That should be fun. Pirates of the Caribbean… I have some reservations about it. The trailers I’ve seen so far haven’t dissuaded my fears that it will be another crappy sequel. But it has Johnny Depp. And pirates. I figure you can’t butcher something like that too badly.

And I’ll probably be eating crow in a month when it comes out.
