Movies To Look Forward To In May

Let's be honest, April seemed to be a weak month as far as movies in the theater were concerned. We had a re-release of the 1997 blockbuster Titanic in 3D, an underwhelming action movie in Lockout, a horror movie that despite good reviews never seemed to garner much attention to average movie-goers in The Cabin In The Woods and a Three Stooges movie that seemed to leave critics with mixed reviews. Don't panic though, because it appears that May is going to be a much better month with these 5 movies coming out in a cinema near you soon! Which ones are you most looking forward to?

  1. Like I've told you before - you need to go see Cabin in the Woods. I really really enjoyed that movie. I found it more humorous than frightening, but it still is a horror film.
    I'm looking forward to seeing Men in Black 3 (I admit, it is one of those action-y movies I enjoy watching. Probably all the aliens)...), and also Dark Shadows looks crazy funny. The plot seems good too (from what trailers have given away).

    1. I will see Cabin in the Woods eventually I hope. I am looking forward to Men In Black III a lot too!
