It's labour day weekend and the summer movie season is officially over. So it's time to review how the season went.
Favourite summer movie - this was surprisingly tough, and ultimately a three way toss up between the Avengers, The Hunger Games and the Dark Knight, but in the end I really loved the darkness and depth of the Dark Knight, even though Avengers was definitely more fun.
Summer movie I wish I'd seen - Moonrise Kingdom, which by all accounts is charming and sweet and I still have time, so it's next on my list.
Biggest disappointment - I still loved it, but Prometheus. Given my love for the Alien movies, I wish the plot in this one had held together more, but that said, the acting and the atmosphere and the tension in the first half, they were all amazing, it just needed a better screenplay.
Biggest Surprise - Battleship - I'd read the terrible, terrible reviews going in, so my expectations were non-existent, and I had a really great time. Sure there were moments of dialogue that were downright awful and the blond love interest had the charisma of a wet blanket, but it was fun, and lighthearted and I left the movie in a great mood.
Movie I'm most looking forward to in the Fall - Les Miserables - seriously, if you haven't seen the trailer, look it up - it gave me goosebumps.
there are movies I missed, and I wish I'd gotten out to see more, but these are the ones that are top of mind. What was your favourite movie? Least favourite.
