i saved some of my steps for that first one. so if anyone’s interested in seeing those, let me know and i’ll see if i can’t find some time this weekend to post them. and that’s all i really have to say about that. time for more important matters:
2008 SUMMER MOVIE RANKINGS!
i feel it’s important for me to keep my list updated for this, the most entertaining summer movie summer in recent history. hopefully it helps hollywood out. anyhoo, saw wall-e and it was really, really good. not my favorite pixar film (cough*incredibles*) but it still held to the high quality standards we’ve come to expect from each new pixar offering. the first thirty minutes or so is fantastic. some of the best thirty minutes i’ve seen in an animated feature. and, being the romantic that i am, i’m always a sucker for a good love story. and robots. my only complaint is that the movie sorta switched gears half way through. not necessarily in a bad way, but in a way that kinda made me have to reinsert my brain a little bit. the wall-e and eve centric love story just kinda became less wall-e and eve centric which, to me, kept the film being really awesome and just being really good instead. but that first thirty minutes is probably my favorite thirty minutes of the summer. and a beautiful score as usual by thomas newman definitely contributed to this.
and so my 2008 summer movie ranking is as follows:
- speed racer
- iron man
- kung-fu panda
- incredible hulk
- narnia: prince caspian
- get smart
- indiana jones: kotcs
still gotta see wanted. and can’t wait to see how hellboy 2 and dark knight place!
