Summer Movie Guide 2021

Movies have finally returned to theaters! As of this writing, I’ve seen A Quiet Place Part II and In The Heights in theaters, and both were so much better than they would have been on my couch (note: I’m vaxxed).

Now we can actually start talking about movies again, and I can’t wait! Let’s see what’s coming up this summer!

June 25

F9: The Fast Saga

Cipher enlists the help of Jakob, Dom’s younger brother to take revenge on Dom and his team.

Step 1: Steal VCRs

Step 2: Become Superheroes who care about family

Step 3: ???

Step 4: Profit

July 2

The Forever Purge

All the rules are broken as a sect of lawless marauders decides that the annual Purge does not stop at daybreak and instead should never end.

The second Purge movie was really good. Everything else has been either decent, or disappointing. This seems to fall under the second category.

July 9

Black Widow

A film about Natasha Romanoff in her quests between the films Civil War and Infinity War.

Listen, this should have come out a long time ago. Preferably before Wonder Woman, but even if it came out WHEN IT’S ACTUALLY SET. Either way, I’m glad we’re getting a post mortem solo story, and I hope that ScarJo feels like she was able to send off the character in a satisfying way.

Space Jam: A New Legacy

NBA superstar LeBron James teams up with Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes for this long-awaited sequel.

Listen, I understand that since I was a kid when the first Space Jam came out, I thought it was better than it was…but what in the fever dream IP nonsense is this? Didn’t WB already mash all their properties together in Lego Movie, Lego Batman, AND Ready Player One?? How many times are we going to see Iron Giant and King Kong running around in the wrong movies?

July 23

Snake Eyes

A G.I. Joe spin-off centered around the character of Snake Eyes.

I mean, it LOOKS cool. I feel like the Snake Eyes/Shang-Chi confusion, or memes, is going to be insane though.

July 30

Jungle Cruise

Based on Disneyland’s theme park ride where a small riverboat takes a group of travelers through a jungle filled with dangerous animals and reptiles but with a supernatural element.

Disney struck gold when they made Pirates of the Caribbean, and they’ve been chasing that high ever since.

The Green Knight

A fantasy re-telling of the medieval story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

Arthurian Cinematic Universe LETS GOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

August 6

The Suicide Squad

Supervillains Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, Peacemaker and a collection of nutty cons at Belle Reve prison join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X as they are dropped off at the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.

NSFW

So that’s it? What, we some kinda…THE Suicide Squad?

August 13

Free Guy

A bank teller discovers that he’s actually an NPC inside a brutal, open world video game.

I can’t tell where this is on a scale of Detective Pikachu to Deadpool. Is this for the adults that Grand Theft Auto is made for, or is this for the kids that actually play Grand Theft Auto?

August 20

Reminiscence

A scientist discovers a way to relive your past and uses the technology to search for his long lost love.

I gotta say, this has all of the ingredients to make this movie amazing. So why does the trailer do nothing for me?

August 27

Candyman

A “spiritual sequel” to the horror film Candyman (1992) that returns to the now-gentrified Chicago neighborhood where the legend began.

For the horror fans.

September 3

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

The movie, based on Marvel Comics, will focus on Shang-Chi; ‘The Master of Kung-Fu’.

Is this everything that Iron Fist was supposed to be?
