What I’m going to do with my summer

Lots of movies are coming out this year that I would love to see in a theater, rather than waiting for DVD.

Here’s the list, in order of release, with release date. Boldface indicates movies I will not miss in the theaters – the others I will be disappointed if I have to miss for one reason or another:

  1. Iron Man – May 2
  2. Speed Racer – May 9
  3. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian – May 16
  4. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – May 22
  5. The Incredible Hulk – June 13
  6. Get Smart – June 20
  7. Wall-E – June 27
  8. Hancock – July 2
  9. The Dark Knight – July 18
  10. The X-Files: I want to believe – July 25
  11. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emporer – August 1
  12. Star Wars: The Clone Wars – August 15
  13. Quantum of Solace (James Bond) – November 7

Hmmm… 13 nights of babysitting to line up, plus approximately $234 in movie tickets (assuming $9 per ticket, and that my wife will accompany me). That’s gonna screw up my budget a bit. If I keep it to the essentials, that’s still $90. At least it’s double digits.

Okay, let’s say I get discount tickets for $6 through work and go after the restrictions are lifted (which may be too difficult a wait for some of these, but let’s just assume I can hack it): cost for all = $156; cost for the essentials = $60.

Of course, that doesn’t include the concession stand….

Sometimes I hate loving movies.
