Ultimate Summer '08 Movie Guide

This summer, over 50 movies are slated to be released - and keeping track of them all is a big chore. Fortunately, the good folks at Always Watching have put out a guide on which movies to watch and which to skip.

I'm looking forward to this one (oh, do I love silly comedy) : Tropic Thunder, Directed by Ben Stiller, Starring: Ben Stiller, Jack Black, and Robert Downey, Jr.

Synopsis: A group of actors shooting a big-budget war movie are captured by enemy forces and find themselves needing to become the soldiers they're portraying.

What to Expect: Robert Downey Jr. as a black man. That alone has guaranteed my ticket bought. The fact that the rest of the film looks great as well is just a bonus. It really seems like they've worked out the perfect combination of action, comedy, parody, and shit blowing up. And I gotta admit, it's nice to see Ben Stiller taking another temporary break from playing the whiny, awkward dork we always see him as.

And why, here's the trailer, of course:

@ Parker: In the trailer it says he underwent a controversial procedure... I'd guess the type of actor that would do that would be method, living as the character until the movie is finished shooting.
