    This is tough.

    Before Midnight, an indie, is my most anticipated film of the summer.

    However, most of the films I’m excited to see are blockbusters (Pacific Rim, Star Trek, Gatsby and The Conjuring). I also have several other indies (The Spectacular Now, Only God Forgives)and foreign films (The Hunt).

    I guess I’m choosing blockbusters because they’re always fun to watch in the theater and experience with the large crowd a blockbuster brings..

  • I’ll choose Indie…. Before Midnight and Frances Ha are my most anticipated movies of the summer.

  • This is easy: independents. Why? Because “Before Midnight” is an independent, and it may well be my most anticipated movie ever. Seriously, not just this year, but in my entire life as a film lover. Even if there were no other independents I was looking forward to (and there are), that alone would get it my vote.

  • I went against what I normally would choose and chose comedy. I don’t typically see many comedies in theaters, but This Is The End looks like it could be great. Something about movie spoofs entertain me endlessly, so I’m hoping it won’t disappoint.

  • Calvin

    The independents look quite good, and even though it’s received not-so-great reviews, I think I may have to see “I’m So Excited,” as it looks so much like “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,” one of my favorite films of all time.
