Re: Top Five Movies of Summer 2011 (Your Ranks)

I've been kind of disappointed this summer, as I've only seen one truly great film.

For the sake of not rehashing the Rank 'Em list, I'll include only "blockbuster" movies. That, and Midnight in Paris may or may not be released in Hong Kong.

Anyways:


  1. Fast Five
  2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
  3. X-Men: First Class
  4. The Hangover Part II


The "worst" summer movie I saw was Kung Fu Panda 2 which I still mildly enjoyed.

Fast Five took me by completely surprise and it was a fun caper/heist film, which is about as close as you can get to my favorite type of movie.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
X-Men: First Class
Bridesmaids
Super 8
Captain America

I haven't seen too many indie films this summer though. No major drama films either... so I suppose once I see a few of those films the list could change a little.

Also, I thoroughly enjoyed Cars 2. I know that I am in the minority on that one but it was a very entertaining and sweet-natured movie.

Still have a few weeks left, but my favorite summer movies of 2011 are:

"X-Men: First Class"
"Bridesmaids"
"Captain America"
"Rise of the Planet of the Apes"
"Crazy Stupid Love"

(Note: I still haven't seen the last "Harry Potter" or "Thor")

And "Hanna" is still my favorite movie of the year!

X-men First Class - loved it, Kevin Bacon was such a great villian

Captain America

Harry Potter

Thor

Super 8 - I liked it, but didn't love it. Too many plotholes. The movie lost all credibility for me when the kids somehow sneak into the school and just happen to find a top secret film.


Biggest Disappointment - Cowboys vs Aliens. I was excited for this one all year, but after reading the horrible reviews, I didn't bother seeing it.

This is a really hard one for me. RotPotA is easily number 1, but 2 - 6 could actually be tied. I've enjoyed them all.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Thor
Captain America
Harry Potter
X-Men: FC
Fast Five

Favorite Comedies
Bridemaids (by a mile...great movie!)
Crazy Stupid Love

Also really liked Final Destination 5.
