Bullz-Eye Summer Movie Preview
Here are the lessons we learned after slushing through what might have been the three worst months in movie history:
- Harrison Ford and Bruce Willis don’t have a tenth of the box office muscle of Scrat the saber-toothed squirrel. “Firewall,” “16 Blocks” and “Lucky Number Slevin” all came and went with little more than a whimper. “Ice Age: The Meltdown,” meanwhile, is a smash.
- “Final Destination” is the best, horror franchise, ever.
Luckily, we’re past all that, and now the fun starts. The summer movie season starts out with a bang this year, with a big-time movie hitting the screens each weekend in May. But unlike most top-heavy summer schedules, the 2006 slate wraps up in August with what will surely be the Greatest Movie Ever Made, “Snakes on a Plane” (we already have our tickets, not to mention bootleg T-shirts).
Bullz-Eye takes a gander at the summer schedule – subject to change any minute now – and offers our take on all movies big, small, and filled with snakes.
