Beginning of summer 2010 releases...bring on the unoriginal ideas!

Although I think the summer is starting off with unoriginal concepts, there are a few films I am looking forward to.  As you film aficionados know, the summer season begins in May.  Click on the title of this post; it will direct you to May 2010 releases and their trailers, if available. For June releases, go to ; it will direct you to a list of June 2010 releases and their trailers, if available.
1- Iron Man 2- I've been waiting for this since I finished watching the first one at the cinema!  I am still so impressed with Jon Favreau directing an action film of this size and calibre.  Plus, I was so happy that this was the return to leading man status for Robert Downey, Jr.
2- MacGruber-- Yes, a movie based on the SNL skit based on the action/drama from the 1980's, MacGyver.  Unoriginal? Somewhat. But the skits are funny and it looks like the movie is even funnier!  I laughed out loud just from watching the trailer.  For a trip down memory lane, watch full episodes of one of my favorite shows of the 80's/90's: MacGyver
Let's get real... SNL has not produced a good funny movie since Wayne's World.  I think this is going to actually be good!
3- Shrek Forever After-- Although the last installment, Shrek the Third , was dissapointing, I will have to give this one a try as it is slated to be the last installment of the series.  The story sounds funny but it's reminiscent of "It's A Wonderful Life"
4-  Killers- I'm still not 100% sure on this one but it seems promising, as long as Ashton Kutcher can get out of the box he has created for himself and not act like he usually does! 
5- The A-Team-- I'm a sucker for watching any movie that reminds me of the t.v shows I watched and loved as a child. BUT this one looks like it was done well and promises to be a good time, as it is directed by Joe Carnahan, the director of Smokin' Aces .
6- Knight and Day-- Interesting premise but I wonder if the producers and writers of Killers shared notes with them or vice versa. Hmm. The plot for both seems interchangeable.  Don't ya think?  But hey, this one has Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, with Cruise being an action hero again, which really works for him! :-)  He was amazing in Mission: Impossible 3.  On a sidenote: I hope J.J Abrams decided to direct the 4th installment, which is slated to be released in 2011. According to , J.J Abrams will be producing it. Josh Applebaum & Andre Nemec will write the script based on a story Abrams wrote with them.  Abrams directed the best one in the series, even though I am somewhat of a fan of John Woo.  I was in awe of the intricacies of certain scenes of that film!
