Hello, and welcome to the “better later than never” edition of the monthly checklist. How busy have I been the last several weeks? Here’s how: I honestly thought I posted this already. Seriously. That’s how scatterbrain I am right now.

Before I begin, I wanted to wish my fellow Canucks a happy Canada Day, and my Yankee friends a happy Independence Day. Hope everyone had a great day off.

Anyway, let’s get this one out quick, I don’t have too much to say this month.

  • First, what will be the last update of Weight Gate 2012. Overall, after six whole months, I have lost a grand total of 43 pounds. I have joined a gym within walking distance of my house, and I have paid for the personal trainer. There will be more weight training, so the amount of weight will be up and down, because muscle weighs more than fat. I still am very motivated to keep going with this, and become a physically better person.
  • For those that you are interested, my freelance work is taking over a big chunk of my free time. My video game consumption is pathetically short, and my writing had to take a back seat. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t write. Just nothing that I feel right to post. I have two movie reviews that I really should post soon.
  • Since a certain third instalment of a certain caped crusader is coming out to theatres this month, the website Retro Critic and his Twitter feed is celebrating with BatMonth. Go forth, and enjoy
  • Next month should be huge. I hit my birthday, there will be Review a Bad Game day, and it will be my one year anniversary. I need to think of something good to do. It’ll more than likely be nothing spectacular or legendary, but it will still be a great milestone to hit.

See? I told you this will be short. Sorry guys. But at least I can still tell you the movies I will be checking out. There’s not a lot of movies out this month, which shocks me, because it’s the summer, and that’s when the blockbusters are supposed to come out. Anyway, here’s what’s coming out.

Yes, I would like to see:

The Amazing Spider-Man – July 3
Even if I didn’t have any interest, there’s a guarantee I will be seeing it multiple times in theatres. I have way too many Spiderman fan friends. It’s a good thing I think it’s going to be good.

Savages – July 6
Oliver Stone usually just has to say hello, for me to be interested. It looks like it’s going to be a gritty version of Scar face. Can’t wait.

The Dark Knight Rises – July 20
Similar to Spiderman, I have way too many Batman fan friends, and more than likely be seeing it in theatres more than once in theatres. I have more interest in Batman than Spiderman, so seeing this will be a lock.

No, I have no interest in seeing:

Katy Perry: Part of Me – July 5
I doubt I am part of the target audience, because I’d rather get a dental drill in my ear, than listen to one Katy Perry song. But the biggest question I have? Is making this movie in 3D supposed to make me interested, in just watching the huge, um, tracks of land coming to me in the third dimension?

Ice Age: Continental Drift – July 12
The first one, was a pretty good movie. But they really shouldn’t have made this many sequels. Hmm, that sounds similar to the Madagascar series. You’d think they’d learn, but, oh well.

The Watch – July 27
Usually, Ben Stiller comedies are hit and miss. With the exception of Tropic Thunder, my motivation to see his movies in theatres is very minimal. The cast doesn’t look that bad, it does have Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and … Wait, is that Moss from IT crowd? Wow, I may have to see it when it comes out on DVD.
