Saw Pacific Rim last night. Most fun I’ve had all summer, so I don’t care what anyone else says:

1) Pacific Rim
2) Despicable Me 2
3) Grown Ups 2
4) The Heat
5) Lone Ranger

Late to the party again, hopefully not too late…

1) Despicable Me 2- As much as I want to ditto Scott & CougRon, never count out the slow drop on kids movies.

2) Pacific Rim- glad to hear CougRon’s positive feedback; wanted to go last night but didn’t make it (tonight for sure) This is the movie I’ve most anticipated all summer, and the one I get the most “What’s that?” from people outside the geek circles.

3) Grown Ups 2- I don’t care if it even does #1, I cannot, will not put this higher. I don’t have that much faith in movie-going Americans, I just simply can’t make myself type it.

4) The Heat- saw a free screening of this. If they’d gone w/ straight comedy and not tried to graft on a plot, it would have been better. The funny parts were very funny.

5) Lone Ranger- saw this last week and know why it did so poorly- it is boring. Despite attempts to put some meat on the bone w/ an unreliable narrator, it’s just dull and takes waaaaaay too long to get there.
