I did mostly the old movies which I've missed over the years: Beautiful Mind, Crash, Erin Brockovich, Men of Honor,Medicine for Melancholy etc...and some real real oldies: The Graduate, Rebel without a Cause..:-) They made my summer the little fun it was...But I think I'll be seeing Inception and Salt this weekend.
I went to see "Despicable Me" over the weekend and absolutely loved it. It was absolutely hysterical, but also really sweet. And everyone in the audience (from 5 to 50-year-olds) all seemed to like it too.
Despite the fact that I have no kids and saw most of these movies at the midnight showings so I didn't have to be around children - this summer has been all about the kid films for me so far:
"Toy Story 3" was really good and a great ending for the storyline. "Karate Kid" actually surprised me with being a pretty decent film (although it was more like Kung Fu Kid, but I guess that doesn't really roll off the tongue). "The Last Airbender" was a disappointment and I'm putting M. Night Shamalyan on the list until further notice. Like Crystal said above, "Despicable Me" was very funny and very well thought out (Lehman Brothers joke). Um, and I don't want to talk about "The Sorcerer's Apprentice."
I'm going to see "Dinner for Schmucks" this weekend (because I love stupidly funny stuff like that) and I definitely want to see "Inception" and "Salt" soon, as well.
My friends and I love going to the movies...can you tell?
I've seen some good and some bad but the two best from this summer would have to be Inception and Toy Story 3.
Inception was just great...the plot had you following along so closely, even if you did't get it! And Toy Story 3 had a little bit of everything...so many different emotions from an animated movie!
