Summer Blockbusters …

Posted by austinburns on April 25, 2006

So, Entertainment Weekly has put their predictive powers to the test to rank the top 10 blockbusters of the summer. Here is their list:

  1. Superman Returns
  2. Mission: Impossible III
  3. X-Men: The Last Stand
  4. Cars
  5. The Da Vinci Code
  6. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
  7. Over the Hedge
  8. Poseidon
  9. The Break-Up
  10. Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Good job, EW, but not a great job. You made some pretty brash decisions there. Here’s what you should have predicted:

  1. Cars (no doubt about it)
  2. Superman Returns (Cars will just edge it out)
  3. The Da Vinci Code (Not much will beat this)
  4. X-Men: The Last Stand (I want to see this)
  5. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (My sister alone will push up this movie’s numbers)
  6. Over the Hedge (I’m betting kids will love this)
  7. The Break-Up (Ashley says this will gross more than …)
  8. Mission: Impossible III (Tom Cruise has been WAY overexposed)
  9. Miami Vice (Poseidon will be a BOMB, Miami Vice takes their spot)
  10. Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (Nothing can stop Will Ferrell)

The movies that I am looking forward to are Cars, Superman, Da Vinci, X-Men, A Scanner Darkly, The Break-Up, Wordplay, Lady in the Water, Little Miss Sunshine, Clerks II. Wow. EW previews 114 summer movies and I really only want to see 10 of them. Movies are sucking these days. We’ll see how my predicitons come true in a few months.
