How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?
 
My signature outlines my "grades" for the Summer movies. I agree many of them may seem generous but I'm pretty forgiving in my grading scale which is something only I can understand. To put it one way, a movie has to be pretty damn disapointing and medicore to get a "C" in my grading, let alone a D or an F.

Shit, I think I gave Transformers a C or C-.

There's still a few "big" Summer movies yet to come around: Hellboy 2, Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Dark Knight, X-Files, The Mummy 3, Tropic Thunder just to name a few off the top my head that are going to be the "bigger" movies of this season.

But how do you think it is going?

So far I think it's been a pretty damn good movie season. Almost completely 100% winners. Haven't had a disapointment yet in the theater this Summer.

So how is it going for you?

:)

Pretty decent. I've only been interested in a few films.

Iron Man - A

Indy Jones - B

I'm seeing Dark Knight next week, and then Clone Wars, and then Mummy.

I've seen 6 of them so far and that would be Indy,Hulk,Iron Man,Speed Racer,Sarah Marshall and Hancock and liked them all though Hulk is the worst of the lot. I felt Indy had the best action scenes,Iron Man had the best character in Tony Stark and Hancock actually had the best humor.

Movies I enjoyed but don't think of as really great: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, The Incredible Hulk, Get Smart. Why? These movies were the usual formulaic summer fare that in my opinion got by because they were part of franchises that are popular or well known. Though I had a good time, I don't feel that these movies by themselves they are anything spectacular or groundbreaking.

Movies I liked the most: Iron Man, The Happening, Wanted, Hancock. Why? Iron Man was great fantasy fulfillment and the rest were different from your usual summer fare.

Movies I enjoyed but don't consider summer favorites: Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, Sex and the City. Why? No reason in particular. They just didn't quite make the "movies I liked the most" cut. Is Harold and Kumar even a summer movie? Who cares. I'm putting it in anyway. I saw it a week before Iron Man.

Movies I plan to see: The Dark Knight, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and possibly one or two others.

I've become really cynical this summer movie season in that I've only seen 3 movies and anxiously waiting for the last movie I might see this summer, The Dark Knight. Sorry but I can't even bring myself to see some of the movies that have come out because the trailers just don't look interesting, and I think Hancock and Incredible Hulk were the best examples. Nothing really stood out and I've been kind of watching more movies on DVD than in the theater. Based on the only three movies I've seen so far:

Iron Man - A
Wall-E - A+ (My favorite movie of the summer)
Indiana Jones - C- (The biggest disappointment so far for me)

Pretty good movie season so far.
In order of viewing.

Iron Man: A
Prince Caspian: B-
Indiana Jones: B+
The Incredible Hulk: B+
Get Smart: B
Wanted: C
Wall*E: B
Journey to Center of Earth: B+

Obviously my least favorite has been Wanted. Yes, I liked Journey to the Center of the Earth over Wall*E. It has actual dialoge and engaging characters for the whole movie and is much more a general audience movie, aka adults, than Wall*E and his beeps, whirls and hums.

The only summer movies I've had interest in but have yet to catch are Kung Fu Panda and The Happening.

Remaining on my list are Hellboy 2: The Golden Army(seeing it tonight actually), The Dark Knight, X-Files 2, The Rocker and Mummy 3.

Passively I have interest in Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder and SW:Clone Wars. Meaning if I obtain a free pass I'm there. I turned down free passes for Meet Dave for example...ZERO interest.
