 So far the summer movie season has been pretty underwhelming. Iron Man 3 was a box office success but didn’t resonate with certain fans (read: Adam). The Great Gatsby carried huge expectations based on its star power, but ultimately fell flat of achieving anything beyond trippy visual imagery. Will Smith’s ode to scientology was historically poorly received by both critics and fans, failing to earn back even half of the reported $130 million budget. Hell, if it wasn’t for Dom Torretto and the Fast gang, this blockbuster season may be a dud to this point.
But most the blockbuster season can’t be fully judged until July 4th weekend. Historically, it’s one of the most successful weekends of the year for big budget crowd pleasers. Carrying the torch this year is the Gore Verbinski-helmed Disney flick The Long Ranger.
In Episode 50, Adam and Anthony break down The Lone Ranger and all the other cinematic offerings of the month. The fellas are bullish on Pacific Rim (you know, in case you couldn’t tell from the photo above) and meh-ish on the plethora of sequels. But they are hopeful that a few movies may surprise this month and make up for the duds of the previous month. As always, trailers for all the movies discussed are below (and a few have bad words).
