This week, I was scheduled to review "Speed Racer." But, because I value both my sanity and my retinas, I thought it might be better for everyone to instead look ahead to better things that are in store for us in the coming weeks of the summer movie season. "Iron Man" got things off to a splendid start, and there are several titles - some highly anticipated, others not so much - that promise to keep the ball rolling on quality entertainment all season long. Here are the ones I'm most looking forward to, in order of potential awesomeness.

1. "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" (May 22, wide) - Yes, I've heard the rumors that this fourth installment in the Indy saga is a crushing disappointment that puts corny nostalgia ahead of plot and characters. But, people said the same thing about "Temple of Doom" 24 years ago, and that turned out to be a severely underrated modern classic. So, to the haters out there: You'll excuse me if I place more trust in Steven Spielberg than I do in bitter Internet nerds. As a lifelong fan of the series whose admiration often verges on giddy fanboyism, I just hope Spielberg and company don't force me to eat my words.
