Over at The Null Zone Cameron posted an interesting article about how uninterested he is with this summer of movies. I'm not sure I share the same level of apathy. There have been a some damn good movies this summer. Avengers was fucking incredible and I loved Brave a lot too. But there are two movies coming out that I as a comic book nerd should be excited for and both leave me cold.
The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-man. Everyone seems all amped for these. Honestly I'm more excited about the new Seth MacFarlane movie Ted then either one of these.
Will I see DKR and Amazing? Of course. Shit, I'll probably see both opening weekend. But there is just such a feeling of been there done that. I mean I just saw a mother fucking Avengers movie. A fucking great Avengers movie at that. If you would have told me even 5 years ago there would be an Avengers movie, let alone one done so well, I would have never fucking believed you. To go from that to Spider-man or Batman AGAIN just seems like a let down.
Like I said, I'll go see both these movies, and they'll probably both be damn good movies. But it's just hard to get that excited about seeing the seventh Batman movie of my lifetime.
