You can’t quite tell by the weather, but summer starts next Friday — the summer movie season, anyway, with “Iron Man 2.” (I’m looking forward to the movie, but something tells me, after reading these quotes from Robert Downey Jr. on the press-conference circuit, that just following the guy around and listening to him might make a pretty good movie too. Maybe an even better one.) Anyway, between next Friday and Labor Day, roughly a hundred movies will be showing up in the Seattle area, and some of them are likely to be pretty good. My most-anticipated: “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” (because Edgar Wright can do no wrong), “Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work” (because I think I’ve wanted to see this documentary for years), “The Kids Are All Right” (because the pairing of Julianne Moore and Annette Bening sounds perfect), “Inception” (because I loved ‘The Dark Knight’ as much as anyone), “I Am Love” (because of the Tilda Swinton-goes-to-Italy factor, and because it looks gorgeous) and “The American” (because it just isn’t summer without George Clooney). And how about you? Let’s take a poll, on which I’ve put some of the season’s major releases, but toss any other titles in the comments. Enjoy the weekend . . .
