The summer movie season is now in full swing with a few big releases set for this month.
Feature Film July 2009
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – July 15
Not only was this film purposely delayed by six months, but thanks to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the IMAX release of the film will be delayed by two weeks (meaning people that like to see films opening weekend — like me — would probably opt out). Still, this will probably be one of the biggest films of the summer and I am looking forward to seeing it (no matter what the size of the screen).
Other Picks for the Month
Public Enemies – July 1
I’m really looking forward to checking out this Johnny Depp gangster flick this weekend.
Brüno – July 10
Hopefully this film will at least be just as funny as Borat.
(500) Days of Summer – July 17
This is probably my indie pick of the month.
Funny People – July 31
If all goes right, this film will be the comedy to beat this summer.
May Check Out
Orphan – July 24
The middle of summer is probably not the best time to go see a horror film, but there is nothing else that interests me opening that week.
The Ugly Truth – July 24
While the film’s R rating may suggest that the film is trying to play-up the success of Katherine Heigl’s earlier film Knocked Up, I can say that even with all the foul-mouthed lines from Gerard Butler you can fit, this is still going to be a chick flick.
