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
. 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.
