Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

I'm weird. The only one I've seen so far is The Fall, which I loved.

But I'll go see Wall-E soon, just to be more normal.

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

So far, this has not been a great year for movies.

Iron Man: 3.5 stars
Prince Caspian: 3 stars
Indiana Jones: 2.5 stars
Wall-E: 4.5 stars

The rest have not even interested me enough to go see in theaters.

For the remainder of the year, I've only got Dark Knight, Clone Wars, Quantum of Solace, Bolt, Half Blood Prince, and the Mexican Little League team in America movie to look forward to. Depending how those turn out, this may be an average year for movies, but certainly not stellar like 1999-2005.

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

Sporadic. Been watching plenty of movies at the theatres (rather enjoyed Mongol, looking forward to My Winnipeg and La Antena), but not much yet of the summer fare. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was a good, solid adventure film, if a little unremarkable and tired. Looking forward to Wall-E, Hellboy II, and The Dark Knight. Will probably drag myself to Clone Wars.

None of the other films interested me.

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

Wall-E's on my list. Kung Fu Panda is actually quite good, and worth seeing IMO. I haven't seen any Disney stuff in a long time, but I enjoyed it.

Anyone seen The Strangers?

Kung Fu Panda is Dreamworks, not Disney.
Personally I was bored. Most of the character were barely there, and basically the majority of the jokes weren't funny.

Iron Man: B
Indiana Jones Kingodom of the Crystal Skull: C

Haven't bothered to see anything else. I went ahead and spoiled Hancock for myself so I wouldn't bother with it. (at least one review all but said what the twist was.)

Dark Knight might be it for me as far as paying real money to see a movie, unless I get nostalgic for The X-Files.

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

So far this season has been really good. Here's the rundown for me:

Iron Man: A
Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull: B+
The Incredible Hulk: B
Get Smart: C (To clarify: I enjoyed the movie a lot, but it was not the Get Smart I know and love)
Wall-E: A+
Hancock: C (Loved the first half, hated the second)

Still looking forward to: Hellboy II, The Dark Knight, The Mummy III, Tropic Thunder, Star Wars: Clone Wars, Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince, Quantum of Solace

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

I finally saw an X-files and Mummy preview last night during Hells Kitchen. Given I barely know anything about these films, it's finale nice to see them previewed. I guess the theatrical trailers have come out but I've barely gone to the theaters so I couldn't say what movie they came out with.

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

I loved Ironman, greatly enjoyed Incredible Hulk and Sarah Marshall, and Hancock was close to being great but not quite. I'm planning on seeing Wall-E tomorrow, and after that the season is over for me except for Dark Knight. I MIGHT see the new Mummy if someone talks me into it, but probably not.

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

Been great! Have seen almost a movie a week. LOVED just about everything I saw even if it goes against popular opinion:

Iron Man
The Hulk
Indy 4
Prince Caspian
WALL-E
Kung-fu Panda
Wanted

Did see Speed Racer, and didn't really enjoy it.

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

I've seen a mix of blockbusters and indie stuff.

Iron Man: A
The Fall: B
Speed Racer: B-
Redbelt: B+
Wanted: B+
Reprise: A

I've been doing a good job skipping out on the bad movies, which is why I haven't seen The Happening or Indy 4.

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

So two people actually went out to see The Fall.

I've never even heard of it.

I'm reading up on it now and it looks interesting.

The Fall
