The 2012 Geek Movie Lineup

Wow, what a potentially great year it is for movies that fall into the category of “geek”.  I say potentially because many, if not most of these, may stink.  On the surface, they sound like fun.

 

Dark Knight Rises – Chris Nolan’s final episode of his Batman movies, this will not stink (July 20)

The Avengers – Marvel gets their heroes in a room, they bicker, they save the world (May 4)

The Amazing Spider Man – Not sure why, but this is getting a re-boot, promising it to be “darker, more serious” (July 3)

The Hunger Games – Based on the very popular books, kids fight to the death ( March 23)
