Well, we've just about hit that spot in the month of August when it's time to begin assessing the summer movie season that was. What were the biggest hits and misses? Which films turned out better than you thought they would, or, alternatively, which films turned out worse? There's so much we could go over – from acting performances to best use of special effects, but for this week's Friday Five I'd like to concentrate on which five films turned out to be the most entertaining overall. Here's mine:
Up, Star Trek, The Hangover
(500) Days of Summer, Drag Me to Hell, Inglourious Basterds, The Hurt Locker and Ponyo.
I think Harry Potter was an amazing movie.
didn't realize MOON even got released! considering hwo well STAR TREK and DISTRICT 9 did and how much anticipation there is for AVATAR, you'd think Hollywood would have been pushing MOON like crazy...did it only play in NYC and LA?
never saw moon but i did see the other four, the only reason i never bothered with moon was i remeber that guy from charlies angles and his acting was bad, also the movie never got huge publicity. didn't wanna waste my time on a film that dealed with a guy by himself.
The hangover and startrek YES!
I've seen all of those films and those are probably my five so far too.
How about 500 DAYS OF SUMMER - and even with its flaws - there's no denying that INGLORIOUS BASTERDS is gruesomely entertaining
I've seen 2 of the 5 and completely agree. District 9 and Hangover were entertaining movies!
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
