3 months….no…4 MONTHS of gratutitous action, loud explosions, and mindblowing special FX!!
Sheeeeeit, I spend an entire years worth of movie money on just summer movies alone! From May to August -we’re talking $200-300!! And I don’t buy $10 theater popcorn – helll naw Playah! I sneaks mine in Grandpa Freeman-style. Hahaa
and here in Austin, TX lucky bastards like me have the Alamo Drafthouse!
the ULTIMATE movie theater! - trust me, its an experience like no other – the audience participation is off da chain. The staff don’t wear those corny, corporate logo polos. You get to see outrageous vignettes from classic B-Movies – AND – before the movie even starts you can get blitzed off of beer and stuffed from freshly prepared entrees! But i digress…
So this summer lacks a Will Smith – BUT - has a Will Ferrell.
And Marvel Comics makes sure to keep a blockbuster on tap every summer from now on! This summer also has mutants, gangsters, all kinds of robots, nazis, flying houses, dinosaurs, and a gay reporter!
So Friday, Dumpling, and I are gonna give our unique perspective on the ENTIRE Summer Movie schedule – of the movies that matter! So without further ado….
Here is – ’2 Comic Book Guys’
