Although its still summer, this is a horrible time of year for films. As I look down the list of movies being released soon, almost nothing excites me. Dickie Roberts looks pathetic. The Order is a joke. Cabin Fever, maybe. Cold Creek Manor looks like it might surprise us, but the marketing isn’t doing a good enough job to get me in line for it. Matchstick Men like many of Nick Cage’s film is hit or miss. The list of yawners goes on and on. Yet, in the midst of the mediocrity 3 films have grabbed my attention. Once Upon a Time in Mexico has one of the best trailers I’ve seen for a film in a long time. For Antonio’s sake, I hope the actual film is at least half as good, his career needs a boost. Underworld has me drooling at the mouth! Vampires vs. Werewolves! This is going to make Freddy vs. Jason (which was boring) look like the Cabbage Patch Kids vs. My Pretty Pony. The third on my list is Jeepers Creepers 2. The origional Jeepers Creepers was a gem that most people missed out on. To this day it is still my favorite 80’s style horror film of all time.
So what films are you looking forward to in the next couple of months?
