Ron Porter’s Movie Spring/Summer Movie Round Up of 2011

Posted by

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.

  1. Battle Los Angeles– This movie fulfilled ever expectation that I had for a summer film.
  2. Rise of the Planet of the Apes– This was an unexpected movie that cries for
    sequels! This movie was a pleasant surprise.
  3. Harry Potter– The final movie of the franchise hit all of the right notes
    and had a satisfying conclusion.
  4. 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.
  5. Thor- This was a fun superhero film that I enjoyed immensely despite my initial
    misgivings.
  6. Captain America– Another solid superhero film that exceeded expectations.
  7. 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.
  8. Hanna– A remarkable action film that had a unique story idea even if somewhat
    flawed.
  9. Transformers: Darkside of the Moon– Many people hate the Transformers movies, but I
    love’em! Action, Robot Mayhem and Robotic Transformations. Enough said!
  10. Super 8– A wonderful nostalgia film that brought back memories of my
    childhood, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, ET & Poltergeist.
  11. Green Lantern– Not as bad as I thought it would be, but they really missed
    some opportunity with this film.
  12. I AM NUMBER  4– This should have
    been reserved for Saturday morning teen shows.
  13. Sucker Punch– The most disappointing film of the summer that should win one
    of those Razzy awards. Some much potential wasted.
