I picked the Dark Knight as the top movie of the summer. I think it was a wider audience to draw from. The series has been quite popular and good, so I think it will hit some pretty large numbers. I am definitely going to see it. I saw Avengers on the weekend and really liked it. Much better than I had anticipated. Avengers might give Dark Knight some competition. Spider-Man might be interesting. Love all these comic book movies doing well.
to see them all at least once, I've already managed to see The Avengers 3 times, and would gladly go back and see it a fourth time if I didn't have so many films that I want to see this summer, let alone this year.
Dark Shadows was always going to be a yes from me, being a Tim Burton film.
Snow White looks like it could be rather epic to be quite honest.
TDKR is quite high up there for me, but I find it hard to imagine how it will top The Avengers for spectacle. It'll have to go a long way to beat Batman Begins in my view as well, which I have always seen as the better of the two Nolan Batman films.
The Amazing Spider-Man is quite high up as I was a big fan of the Sam Raimi films (the first two anyway). Those first two are probably some of the best superhero films I have ever seen, so again I'm cautiously optomistic as whether this one can hold up to those first two films. It'll be quite a feat if it does manage to do that.
Prometheus. Well, Ridley Scott. I'm a big fan after Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven. This one looks like it could be quite interesting to say the least.
Men In Black 3 looks like it will be as fun as the first two installments. My only worry was the troubles the filmmakers had with getting the script right, and I hope that doesn't show up in the final film. The time travel element looks fun, and I also look forward to see Jermaine Clement as the villain.
Brave looks like another gem from the guys at Pixar. Nice to see a film of their's set in the British Isles too.
I hope to catch the new Wes Anderson movie, Moonrise Kingdom, at the end of the month, but aren't holding my breath for a wide release :(

We've been thinking about getting a 3D TV as well - the only thing that puts me off is that the technology is pretty new and changes so quickly (like mobile phones). Have you seen which TV you are considering (sorry - don't answer if you think I'm poking my nose in to your business. Just interested on people's opinions)
I hear they're getting out of the LCD HDTV game, in favor of Samsung. I am really unsure of Samsung--their reputation for a good picture has really improved from what it was several years ago, but not enough time has elapsed since that improvement to prove their longevity for me. LGs and Sharp are out. I'm not sure what we'll get right now, but we will be getting a warranty this time. Just after my current TV went out of manufacture's warranty the motherboard went out, such that a connection of some kind is not made if the TV is not constantly "warm" enough for some wire to connect with another and part of the screen's picture jiggles. Our current solution is not to ever turn it off, and as someone who is concerned about the overuse of energy this is really bugging me.
back a year or so again, when Sony still had a local store, we looked at a set there in 3D and were totally blown away. Last year we looked at a Sony set in Best Buy, and this model was amazing, too. However, I looked at an LG and was really unimpressed. Of course, so much depends on what was being shown at the time. There are many variables.
via red baron pizza to see The Avengers. I completely loved the movie, though the cost to drive 30 minutes to see it (I live in a rural area), 4.50 for a 16 oz drink, and 5.50 for a small popcorn meant my free movie cost me about $30.00! Which is why I only usually see two or three movies a year. I was only planning on seeing The Hobbit, but now I am also excited for Snow White and The Huntsman and Brave. I hope I can budget them somehow!
