Now here’s that long-awaited list featuring some of the current good movies on Cinemax:

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief – Teenage Percy Jackson learns that he’s the son of the Greek god Poseidon, and he’s quickly drawn into a dangerous web of intrigue and adventure alongside a number of other demi-gods. Kids will get a kick out of this one, and the presence of numerous established actors (Sean Bean, Kevin McKidd, Rosario Dawson) will keep adults from nodding off.

Jennifer’s Body – When a Satanic sacrifice goes wrong, a teenage girl (Megan Fox) is inhabited by a demon and goes on a boy-killing rampage. It’s up to her best friend (Amanda Seyfried) to stop her. Written by Oscar winner Diablo Cody.

Get Him to the Greek – Drugged-out rocker Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) is due to give a concert in Los Angeles, and it’s up to an ambitious talent agent (Jonah Hill) to get him there in one piece. An outrageous comedy that serves as a sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Sean “Diddy” Combs is surprisingly funny in this one.

The Kids Are All Right – A lesbian couple (Annette Bening and Julianne Moore) is thrown into turmoil when their adopted kids want to meet their sperm donor father (Mark Ruffalo). An endearing comedy-drama about the importance of family.

Repo Men – In a dark future, those needing organ transplants receive them from a cold-blooded corporation that doesn’t hesitate to forcefully take them back when the recipient falls behind on payments. Jude Law plays a repo man who carries out these forced surgeries, while Forest Whitaker is his longtime friend and partner. But when the hero needs a transplant of his own, he soon finds himself on the run from his former co-workers.

Up in the Air – George Clooney stars as a man who specializes in personally visiting companies and laying off their employees. As he racks up the frequent flyer miles, he shows a clinical co-worker (Anna Kendrick) the human side of his business while romancing a fellow traveler (Vera Farmiga). Nominated for six Academy Awards.

The Book of Eli – Years after a nuclear war, a lone warrior (Denzel Washington) roams a desolate America with the last remaining copy of the King James Bible. When a local warlord (Gary Oldman) recognizes the power the book has over people, he seeks to take it for himself. Co-starring Mila Kunis, Jennifer Beals, and Ray Stevenson.

Public Enemies – The tale of John Dillinger (Johnny Depp), the man who was once branded as “Public Enemy #1” by the U.S. government. Christian Bale co-stars as Melvin Purvis, the ambitious FBI agent dedicated to bringing Dillinger’s crime spree to an end.

Shallow Hal – After a meeting with motivational speaker Tony Robbins goes awry, the usually shallow Hal (Jack Black) can only see the inner beauty in women. Before long, he falls for a morbidly obese woman played by none other than Gwyneth Paltrow, much to the amazement of his equally shallow buddy (Jason Alexander).

X-Men Origins: Wolverine – Before he joined the X-Men, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) went through a number of adventures on his own. This is one of them, pitting him against his superhuman brother (Liev Schreiber), the smart-assed Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds), and an assortment of government agents and superhuman freaks.

Wow just saw the new promo ads for Cinemax’s summer lineup and they have a bunch of good stuff!

All those movies are good that I’ve seen (haven’t seen The American or My Soul To Take) and I also thought it was awesome that they used the song “Cut Me Out” by MNDR as background music for this cut up of movies.
