Summer of Good Movies

Has anyone else thought that this summer has been a great one for movies? Here are my reviews of the movies I've seen this summer:

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

While there were some parts in the movie that I think they tried a little too hard to be funny, the good things ended up outweighing the bad. Good movie and, of course, great music!

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Cheesiness is to be expected in any movie that George Lucas has a hand in and this movie is no exception. However, the movie kept me entertained so I didn't go home disappointed. The story line is interesting and I thought it was just as good as the old ones. Dad, of course, disagrees.

Kung Fu Panda

I have to admit that I wasn't a huge fan of this movie. While the little kids surrounding us in the theater were laughing out loud, I found myself laughing maybe once or twice. It's a cute movie and worth seeing once though.

The Incredible Hulk

I wasn't as excited about this movie as I was about the other movies based on comic books that have come out this summer, but I did like the movie. And from the way the movie ended, it looks like we'll be seeing more of him in the future, perhaps with a few more superheroes at his side ; ) .

Iron Man

When this movie came out, I was really only familiar with Superman, Spiderman, and Batman. They're the ones that everyone knows about, so I didn't expect this movie to become one of my favorite movies. I liked this movie so much, I saw it twice! Great movie!


I like Pixar movies. They are pretty much the only animated Disney movies now days that aren't dripping with cheese. But I do have to say that this was probably my least favorite of all the Pixar movies. I like the song from Hello Dolly but I heard it way too many times throughout the movie. But it's cute and worth seeing.

Journey to the Center of the Earth

This movie is definitely not my favorite one of the summer. There was some cheesy acting (after all, it's Brendan Fraser) but it's entertaining, has some cool special effects, and presents some unbelievable but interesting views on what the center of the earth is like.

The Dark Knight

This movie is amazing! Heath Ledger did a fantastic job playing the Joker. Even though it's not a particularly happy movie, I really liked the storyline and the development of the characters. Hands down, this is the best movie of the summer.

You're lucky that you've been able to go see so many movies lol. I haven't been near a theater in about a year. Tyler went and saw The Dark Knight last night though and said it ROCKED!! And that's what I've been hearing from everyone, that Heath was definitely in his element on this one. Fun post sis!
