Another funny movie to catch this summer might be The Internship with Wedding Crashers duo Luke Wilson and Vince Vaughn.  Or you may want to see Jen Aniston‘s new comedy where she plays a stripper, yes a stripper, in We’re the Millers.  Planes also comes out this summer, Disney‘s new movie like Cars, but planes instead!

THE ALL AMERICAN SUPERHERO | WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE?

The All American Superhero | Who is Your Favorite?

With The Wolverine getting ready to be released this summer (the second installment of the Wolverine movies), we have been thinking a lot about the All American Superhero.  Over the years comic book superheroes have been transformed into blockbusters at the box office.  So this begs the question:  Who is your favorite All American Superhero?

Through the years we have been able to watch many superheroes save their city (or the world in some cases) and usually get the girl in the end.  The list of All American Superheroes goes on and on.  As early as the 1970’s we saw one of our first Superman and Batman characters.  In the 80’s we saw Swamp Thing and Supergirl.  The Toxic Avenger came along as well as The Punisher.  The 90’s brought Captain America, The Fantastic Four, and again more Batmans!  With the new millennium we have seen the X-Men characters, more Spidermen, Elektra, the Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, The Dark Knight, Thor, and Green Lantern, just to name a few!!!  Check out some of these awesome depictions of the All American Superhero.

BOX OFFICE WAR | FAST AND FURIOUS 6 OR HANGOVER 3

Box Office War | Fast and Furious 6 or Hangover 3

Last weekend started a box office war between Fast and Furious 6 and the Hangover 3. Fast and Furious 6 is part six of the movie franchise and the Hangover 3 is part three of the movie series.  Which do you think will do better at the box office? Fast and Furious 6 or Hangover 3?

Many of you out there will see both movies, but some of you may pick Fast and Furious 6 or Hangover 3.  Those of you that are Vin Diesel and Paul Walker fans will want to see the thrilling car chases and crazy action sequences of Fast and Furious 6. Those of you who enjoy comedy, Zach Gilifianakis and Bradley Cooper will opt for the Hangover 3, probably to find out how the franchise will end.
