…that Inception is the only movie worth looking forward to this summer.
I look out across the summer slate, and I see an endless array of sequels, retreads, adaptations from other media, grossout comedies, etc. Among the wide releases, that is. There are always potentially interesting foreign films and indies on offer, at least for someone lucky enough to live in New York or Los Angeles or London.
It makes me want to hibernate till October. Not that the awards season is looking much more promising, though…
I’d be looking forward to Despicable Me, too, except I’ve already seen it and I’m not allowed to tell you about it. I will say that if I were, hypothetically, going to be psyched for Despicable Me, I would not be disappointed when I did finally see it. But I didn’t say that — don’t tell anyone I said that.
I think I’m gonna spend a lot of time hugging my DVD player and my Roku box.
