Movies I Will Not See in Theaters

Another movie season, another look at all the movies I, in reality, will see on video.

Iron Man
Sigh. I really do want to see this in the theater, as nothing I've seen so far has hinted at anything but a very well-done Iron Man movie. Here's hoping.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
This I might see, given that the wife is an Indy fan as well - might be worth one of our mi-annual movie nights. Also looking good from all early indications - although the much more secretive marketing plan means it could have deep flaws yet to be exposed.

The Incredible Hulk
The promise of lots of scenes of the Hulk going nuts and fighting are very promising, and Norton is always good.

Probably over the twins' heads at this stage, so this might have to wait. The look and feel seem different than other Pixar, which intrigues. And the notion of it being largely dialogue-free is fascinating for me.

Will Smith as a rumpled, anti-hero superhero? Honestly, I have no idea if this sounds good to me or not. My judgement sense will not click on for it.

Hellboy 2
Saw the first on DVD and liked it didn't love it. Rinse, repeat.

The Dark Knight
Saw the first on DVD and loved it, wished I had caught it in the theater. Rinse, repeat?

Pineapple Express
I've liked each of the Apatow-driven flicks so far, but have never been a stoner comedy fan. DVD!

Tropic Thunder
Will rent for Downey Jr alone.

Until Whenever

"one of our mi-annual movie nights" mi-annual? is that supposed to be biannual, triannual, or did you just drop the first two letters of semiannual? inquiring minds DO want to know!

We'll see Wall-E. The wife isn't a big movie person, so I'll slip out after The Child is asleep and see Iron Man and maybe The Dark Night.

Hated the 2nd and 3rd Indiana Jones movies, so may watch it when it appears on free cable.

The K is also invisible.
