The Avengers

The long awaited climax to Marvel Comic's movie machine, The Avengers is now playing in theatres throughout Bangkok. There are enough reasons to go see this one, especially if you've watched any of the previous Marvel flicks that introduced one of the main characters, but if not then don't fret, there's still dozens of things to keep you entertained. For example: explosions, Thor's hair, Scarlett Johansson and explosions happening behind Thor's hair and Scarlett Johansson. If that's not enough keep in mind that if you don't go to watch this one you'll be left out of half the chatter on the internet. 

 

 

Battleship

While comic books and video games easily made the transition into the big screen, board games have had much less luck. In fact, we tried to think of another board game movie, and since Jumanji didn't exist before Robin Williams took it to screen we're going to say that Battleship is taking the brave move of floating into uncharted territories. The movie takes on an action-adventure route, adding aliens and peppering the screen with the usual summer-film cast of Hollywood actor (Liam Neeson), television rising star (Alexander Skarsgård of True Blood) and singer (Rihanna.) Perhaps not the most plot heavy thing out there, but keep expectations low and you won’t be disappointed. 

 

 

Lockout/MS One: Maximum Security

We have to admit we seriously believed this to be a B-movie at first glance. A wrongfully convicted man sent on a mission to a high security prison in space? Oh and he's saving the president's inexplicably beautiful daughter? Oh and he's the" best there is" but also a "loose cannon"? The clichés role on, and yet it's hard to not want to watch this movie because it brings flashbacks of Halo, Doom and Condemned: Criminal Origins… and if you've ever played one of these games you realize that you are the hero, and this movie is a parody of your life.  

 

 

Safe

Jason Statham hasn't made many mistakes in his movie career so we have bets that Safe will be a good spy/crime movie. Statham takes on the role of a former elite agent who finds himself protecting a Chinese girl from the Russian Mafia, the Triads (Asian underground society) and corrupt NYC officers. It's the typical super agent vs. the world with a few clever tricks of modern cinema. With the creators of Kill Bill and Inglorious Basterds behind this, audiences might find hidden enlightenment between the sequential fist fights, shoot outs and car chases. 

 

 

Wrath of the Titans

Taking place about 10 years after the first movie, Wrath of the Titans adds a bigger budget to the story of Perseus. Due to the somewhat disappointing reviews from Clash of the Titans—and even more disappointing  "3D" version—we hope this much anticipated revamp brings the glory days of Greek mythology back to Hollywood. And if not, it's still a good excuse to watch an epic battle. We love epic battles.
