Before we head into the rest of the summer biggies next week, let me just take this entry as a chance to bring us all up to speed on how this summer has been shaping out for me. With my ADD acting up, I offer no witty banter or old-school style BergViews. Instead, I will simply use my “dot” system that i have used since 1985 when i first started keeping lists of every film i have seen.
No dots = Waste of my life and I’ll never watch it again.
* (dot) = Glad i saw it. Good.
* (bold dot) = Awesome. Will own it on DVD. (the amount of bold dots indicates how many times i have seen it)
In order of Summer ’06 release:
M:i III = * *
An American Haunting = (no dot)
Poseidon = (no dot despite being technically cool)
The Di Vinci Code = (no dot)
Over the Hedge = (no dot, walked out!)
CARS = * * * * *
X-men: The Last Stand = (no dot, wanted to walk out!)
A Prairie Home Companion = (no dot, although glad i saw this oddity)
The Break Up = (no dot)
Nacho Libre = * (never have been so unsure weather i liked or hated a movie. Characters = awesome. Movie itself = as if Hess didin’t even try to make a decent film).
Click = (no dot, frustratingly bad considering awesome potential)
So far not such a hot summer despite all my fun and ever-growing love of Cars.
Maybe Supes and his 3Dness & Cap’n Jack and his Kieraness will shake things up a bit…
