Put 'Em High

Well, it's that time again--summer time! That means I get to start bombarding all blog readers with endless movie news. Kingdom of Heaven was the #1 movie this weekend, with 20 million. People actually saw House of Wax, but only enough to get 11 million and second place. Even that paltry sum will probably lead to sequel, which is the bad news.

I hope everyone's managed to see the Narnia teaser. I saw it on a kind of fuzzy screen, but it looked awesome. I think the scene at the Stone Table could be really intense. A ridiculous nitpick--the wardrobe is shown covered with a sheet. As I recall, there was no sheet involved in the book. Pshaw!

I just watched the Goblet of Fire teaser tonight. I think they were taking up valuable GOF time with character reminiscing, but the second half showed some great stuff. I really like the sound of Dumbledore in this one, and I'm glad that they went with a more active Dumbledore after Richard Harris's death. I do think Fleur looks about thirteen years old but...who cares about Fleur besides Ron anyway? I'm still waiting for a look at Moody, but I guess he'll probably require some intense post-production work for his eye.

In other news, I saw Hotel Rwanda, which was very good. I also spent a lot of the last week with two hilarious little boys and had a blast. I had some ice cream tonight too. So, life is good. (And Episode III is less than two weeks away!)
