The July 4th weekend is on its way, and that means it's time to think about big-budget sf movies. Last year at this time, I found myself watching a muddled, incoherent, overly loud mishmash called Transformers, and judging from the reviews, I have the opportunity for a similar annoying experience this year with Hancock.
On the other hand, with everything that's been going on, I somehow missed the release of WALL-E, a movie I could probably convince Snuffles to see with me. Its reviews are quite positive, though the claims that it's super-serious sf sound far fetched; I'll believe it when I see it.
What I'm really impatient for, however, is Hellboy II. I may need to prep for that in the near future by watching some of those animated Hellboy films. Anyway, the reviews for that one are so far quite positive.
