DescriptionThe summer of 2011 is shaping up to be a pretty grim one for curmudgeonly film blogger Jeffrey Wells. Wells who opines daily on film and the movie industry on his website Hollywood Elsewhere hates the special effects-packed event flicks that Joe Popcorns as he calls them seem to love. And this summer has offered Joe P. more than his usual share of just such treats: The Green Lantern Captain America Thor another Transformers an eighth Harry Potter a fourth Pirates a new Conan a return to the Planet of the Apes and a youthed-up X-Men. Wells actually liked that last one but in general he says “Comic-Con culture is one of the worst things to happen to movies. It’s catering to fanboys who want the same stories told over again.” Then he takes it one step further: “I’ve used the metaphor that I’d like to strafe the Comic-Con faithful in an F4 Phantom Jet.”
