What to Look Forward to in June

Also what NOT to look forward to in June.

Here's are some of the better upcoming movies, games, TV shows, and music coming out next month. All dates are for the United States. I'm sorry we don't live on Pangaea anymore.

June 3rd
X-Men: First Class -- aka Mad (X) Men. I'm still somewhat torn on this. It has looked much better with the newer previews. However, it is missing the strongest suit of the other X-men movies: a good cast. And thats dealing with both actors and characters.

June 7th
White Collar (USA Network)
Covert Affairs (USA Network) -- aka USA's two weaker spy and odd-ball cop shows.

Breaking Bad  (Season 3 DVD)
Burn Notice (Season 4 DVD) -- aka the two best shows on TV right now. Well, not right now. That's why the DVD sets are coming out.

Frank Turner -England Keep My Bones -- aka the best songwriter today. Theres alot of good albums coming this month, but this folk-punk singer gets my top pick. He just barely beat out the new Limp Bizkit.

Infamous 2 (PS3) -- aka the follow-up to one of Sony's best games for the PS3. I think any good film buff would appreciate the twist ending to the original. Especially when you replay it, and you see it was all right in front of you the whole time. I just hope the PSN doesn't go down again.

June 10th
Super 8 -- aka ET meets the Goonies. This looks very good, despite there still being few details about it. J.J. Abrams has yet to let me down, but Steven Spielberg as of late is a different story. I just hope this isn't too big of a love letter to his 80s works.

Trollhunter -- aka Blair Witch/Cloverfield but with giant trolls.Here's one from Norway, the most popular non-US country on this blog (Thanks Rumiko!).  It looks great. I just hope it comes to a theater near me.

June 14th
Duke Nukem Forever (PC, PS3, 360) -- aka I'll believe it when I see it. Talk about development hell. This has been delayed and restarted and what not since 1997! So sad, because Duke Nukem 3D may be the best video game ever.

June 17th
Green Lantern -- aka Ryan Reynolds and the Great Green Acid Trip. I'm feeling better about this, but I can not see this getting wide-stream appeal at all. Ryan Reynolds is in a non-Ryan Reynolds role and there's hardly any other star power. However, there are no shortage of CGI fish people.

Mr Popper's Penguins -- aka Hasn't Jim Carrey ruined enough children's classics already? I'm pessimistically optimistic about this. It looks ok and it is a great story, but JC hasn't had an un-cringeworthy film in seven years.

June 19th
Falling Skies (TNT) -- aka Walking Dead but with aliens. This is getting alot of hate ever since it was announced, but I would love to see a solid alien invasion drama. Not like we've had any good alien invasion movies in the past ten years.

June 21st
F.3.A.R. (PC, PS3, 360) -- aka C.R.4.P. Any title that does that is instantly bad, but it is even worse when it does it to an acronym. It's a stupid title anyway: First Encounter Assault Recon? Aren't assaults and recons polar opposites?

June 24th
Cars 2 -- aka the sequel to Pixar's worst movie. Dare I say only bad movie? Everyone used to love Pixar because of how original they were. Before this, we had Toy Story 2.5 and next we have a Monsters Inc. prequel. What happened?

June 26th
True Blood (HBO) -- aka Twlight with sex. Seriously, how can anyone hate Twlight and turn around and like this. Same crap, with an even worse author. Atleast these vampires actually die in the sun.

June 28th
Lord of the Rings: Complete Extended Edition (Blu-Ray) -- aka one 13 hour movie.


  1. Falling Skies just looks so bad. Everyone i know wants to watch it, i just think it looks like a bad syfy show.

  2. Looking forward to First Class and Super 8, and definitely can't wait for Breaking Bad Season 3 to finally come out on Blu-Ray. And as always, looking forward to new season of True Blood.

  3. What is that thing in the picture?

  13. Oh god I hate insects! The Trollhunter is a great movie, but the original Norwegian version has some cameo actors and all that you may not recognize. I know they are planning to make a "Hollywood-version" of it, but is that the one they are showing?

  21. Ahhhh I can't wait for inFAMOUS 2!

  22. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I
    know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
