Summer 2010 Movies

Summer ended last week so might as well put up a few quick thoughts on the films I found time to see this summer. In the order of their release dates...

Iron Man 2 (May 7) - Not as fun or as fresh as the first film. RDJ kind of sleep-walking through the role. B/B-

MacGruber (May 21) - As stupid as you expected it to be. Wish I could forget it. C-

The A-Team (June 11) - Fun, mindless action film. Sharlto Copley is best in show. B

Toy Story 3 (June 18) - Pixar's latest turned me into a blubbering mess. Wonderful, depressing, awesome. A

The Kids Are All Right (July 9) - Good family dramedy with some solid acting, but I had higher expectations. B/B+

Inception (July 16) - Totally mindblowing theatrical experience. Had me discussing it weeks after I saw the film. Great ensemble too. A

Salt (July 23) - Angelina Jolie makes it work. Great pacing, but predictable story. B

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (August 13) - Pretty much an epic of epic epicness. Loved, loved, loved it. A

Eat Pray Love (August 13) - More like Huh Boring Oh God. Pretty locales, but indulgent. B-

Reflecting on last summer, I saw two more films, which doesn't really mean anything. There's plenty of films I didn't get to see, but most of those I'll catch up on when their DVDs are released. Any particular summer movie I missed that should make sure to watch? Don't say Twilight! That's so already on the top of my queue!
