Well the spring/summer movie season has officially ended for me. I have seen thirteen movies, and I shall provide you with the final all inclusive movie rankings, from best to worst.
- Battle Los Angeles– This movie fulfilled ever expectation that I had for a summer film.
- Rise of the Planet of the Apes– This was an unexpected movie that cries for
sequels! This movie was a pleasant surprise.
- Harry Potter– The final movie of the franchise hit all of the right notes
and had a satisfying conclusion.
- X-Men: First Class– This movie had me thinking weeks after it was over, which
has given it the edge over the other superhero films of the summer.
- Thor- This was a fun superhero film that I enjoyed immensely despite my initial
- Captain America– Another solid superhero film that exceeded expectations.
- Cowboys & Aliens– From what I hear, many people didn’t buy into the film.
I completely disagree. I loved the concept and serious tone of the movie.
- Hanna– A remarkable action film that had a unique story idea even if somewhat
- Transformers: Darkside of the Moon– Many people hate the Transformers movies, but I
love’em! Action, Robot Mayhem and Robotic Transformations. Enough said!
- Super 8– A wonderful nostalgia film that brought back memories of my
childhood, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, ET & Poltergeist.
- Green Lantern– Not as bad as I thought it would be, but they really missed
some opportunity with this film.
- I AM NUMBER 4– This should have
been reserved for Saturday morning teen shows.
- Sucker Punch– The most disappointing film of the summer that should win one
of those Razzy awards. Some much potential wasted.
