What to Watch For in May

Here's my Hype for what's coming out in May.

Thor - May 6th (pic not related)
Hype Level = INSANE

Marvel Studios has yet to let me down. I'm not even much of a Thor fan, but Chris Hemsworth looks great as the titular character. Looks like a great mix of action, drama, and fantasy/sci-fi/whatever they are calling this.

Priest - May 13th
Hype Level = Meh

I'll for sure check it out when it hits Red Box.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides - May 20th
Hype Level = Hopeful

I love the PotC movies, but it's never a good sign when Johnny Depp doesn't like it. I have faith in Disney though.

The Hangover 2 - May 26th
Hype Level = Amazing

I'm still surprised how The Hangover knocked me out laughing even after repeated viewings. I just hope they don't recycle too many jokes.

Game of Thrones - HBO
Hype Level = Epic

The first episode was an amazing TV achievement, and it's already renewed for a second season. This is truly going to become an epic series.

The Dudesons in America - MTV
Hype Level = Curious

The Dudesons were always the best Jackass wannabes. This could be good.

NHL Playoffs - NBC/Versus
Hype Level = 0_0

The playoffs went from boring to crazy fast. I may have to bandwagon Nashville.

A Ton Pitchfork Bands
Hype Level = Wow (at the release dates. Don't care much for the music)

New Fleet Foxes, The Melvins, My Morning Jacket, Death Cab for a Cutie, Boris, The Antlers, Man Man, Architecture In Helsinki, and Lil' Wayne all in May? Surely there will be a few good songs between all of those.

Lady GaGa - Born This Way
Hype Level = Falling

I do like her, but I can't stand the title track. I wouldn't even know it was her just by the song.

Against Me! - Total Clarity
Hype Level = Eh

I liked their last two albums more than most. But I still don't really know what this is.

LA Noire - PS3/X360
Hype Level - Finally

This would have been HUGE years ago. Now, Just Cause 2, Infamous, Red Dead Revolver, and the Saboteur have all surpassed this.

A Working PSN Network

I want to play Portal and Mortal Kombat Online :(
