Summer 2011 Movie Wrap-Up

Summer '11 In Review

Erica's comments will be appearing in green.

Mike's rundown:

Midnight in Paris-I agree. Great, charming little movie.
The Tree of Life
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Beginners-One of the best of the summer.
Super 8-Great action, adventure film
Bad Teacher-Huge Jason Segel fan, Diaz is even tolerable
Horrible Bosses-Very funny
Cowboys & Aliens-Not my favorite of the summer, but not the worst by far.

Everything Must Go-Not a huge Ferrell fan, but was good in this.
Project Nim-Gripping, real, makes me want to not own a pet monkey
A Better Life- Surprisingly good movie, a bit slow at times
Our Idiot Brother- Very funny.
Attack the Block-Edgar Wright, enough said.

Surprisingly Decent?
Cars 2-Much better than the first. Still a bit Nascar-y though

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides-Not a huge fan
The Hangover Part II- I liked it. It was funny, not as good as the first
Transformers: Dark of the Moon-Fine for what it is (not that great or intellectual)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II
30 Minutes or Less-Disappointing

Overrated (but still very worth my time)
Bridesmaids- Why Paul Feig? Why?
X-Men: First Class-Not that great....
Thor- I think i fell aslepp for part of this movie. Boring.
Captain America-Zzzz

Ugh! (worst movie I saw all Summer)
Green Lantern-Definitely the worst of the summer (Mike and I agree on this!)

Huh? (why did we subject ourselves to this?)
Mr. Popper's Penguins-Not sure why we subjected ourselves to this. Poor penguins
The Smurfs-I subjected myself to this for NPH.

Regrettably Missed
Fast Five
Crazy, Stupid, Love
Winnie the Pooh
The Devil's Double
The Guard
The Help-We saw to follow
Fright Night

Thankfully Missed
Kung Fu Panda II
Larry Crowne
One Day
Friends with Benefits
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
The Change-Up
