Summer Movie List 2012

It’s back! The 4th Annual PCB Summer Movie List!

With the release of The Avengers next weekend we’re officially entering summer blockbuster season. Keeping with tradition of the past three years, below are all of the summer movies I’m interested in seeing (subject to change based on buzz and reception). As this list is longer than it’s been in the past, chances are I won’t manage to see all of them. 

I do this mostly as a reference for myself, and like usual I’ll be crossing off the ones I’ve seen and linking to any reviews I write. Look for sporadic reblogs of this post throughout the summer to check in on my progress.

How many have you seen?

    Coach Taylor and Ron Swanson? Veronica Mars and Buffy? Dale Cooper and Chris Traeger? Nailed it.

    Nick Kroll provides 20 helpful tips for using the Internet.

    Note: Kroll gets a pass for being a funny, professional comedian. Otherwise this type of list would be obnoxious, holier-than-thou “social media expert” bullshit. 

    Hey look there’s my alma mater film department at 15! Right behind The Polish National Film, Television and Theater School. 

    EW ranks what it believes are the funniest musicals of all time and their choice for number one may surprise you. 

    If it were up to me switch number 2 and number 1, throw in some Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson or Title of Show, and sub in The Full Monty for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

    And when I say full I mean full. Due to the sheer magnitude of nominations there’s always much to analyze when it comes to the Emmys. Overall I’m pretty content with the nominees, save for a few snubs. You know we’re living in a television golden age when shows like Shameless, Treme, Community, and Fringe barely get recognized.
