Who will rule the summer boxoffice?

Indianajoneskingdomcrystalskull The 2008 summer movie season is going to be an embarrassment of riches for geeks everywhere. Fandango.com recently conducted a poll asking people which of the films coming out between May and August they are anticipating the most and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull topped the list by a wide margin..

Here is the complete list. Interestingly, Tropic Thunder didn't make the cut, but that trailer is so hilarious, I can't imagine the movie won't be a monster hit. 

1. INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL (82%)
2. THE DARK KNIGHT (42%)
3. IRON MAN (38%)
4. THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: PRINCE CASPIAN (37%)
5. THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR (30%)
6. GET SMART (29%)
7. THE INCREDIBLE HULK (22%)
8. THE UNTITLED X-FILES SEQUEL (20%)
9. SPEED RACER (19%)
10. SEX AND THE CITY (19%)

So how is Wall-E not on that list? That one is easily going to be a monster hit. I'd put it third behind Jones and The Dark Knight.

can't fight this feeling anymore

I'm embarrassingly excited about the untitled X-Files movie (despite the chickens--t copout in the first XF movie and one of the worst series finales EVER). My top list would look like this:

X Files
Indy
Sex and the City
Slight interest in Dark Knight (because I am not a comic book nerd) and Ironman (Robert Downey Jr. is God.)
The rest: eh.

Dont have to be a comic book dork to want to see Dark Knight. In fact, i think in my life i have only ever read ONE batman comic. Ever. But Batman Begins, to me, was a masterpiece. I absolutely loved that film, and I want to see the story continue in this new one. And Heath Ledger's take on the Joker looks nothing short of brilliant.

Forget summer, I'm waiting for fall's Quantum of Solace.

Get the facts Right

Liking Indiana Jones doesn't mean you're a geek. I can't wait to see it!

Wow. I only want to see two of those movies. I'll probably see four of them, but really, only interested in two. I could never be a movie critic. How do you do it, Rene?
