    A: Pirates of the Caribbean

    It's the only one I've seen this summer.

    A- = Bad Boys 2 (Much better than I thought)
    B+ = 2 Fast 2 Furious (Better than I thought)
    B+ = The Italian Job (Very good, must see again on DVD)
    B = Pirates of the Caribbean (Johnny Depp stole the show)
    B = American Wedding (Much better than the 2nd one)
    B = Bruce Almighty (The scene with Bruce mimicing the newscaster had me in tears)
    B = Once Upon a Time in Mexico (Wasn't as good as Desperado and Robert seemed to be piling up the too fantastic to be believable scenes)
    B- = Finding Nemo (Maybe a little too scary for kids under 7)
    C+ = S.W.A.T. (Nice action, but they wrote it as campy and that's fine for Charlie's Angels, but this should be serious).
    C+ = Kangaroo Jack (Don't remember too much about it, but it was funny)
    C = Freddy vs. Jason - (It was okay, but it was missing much of the Freddy humor from the 80's - lots of gore)
    C- =Terminator 3 : Rise of the Machines (Disappointed, but T2 is my favorite movie of all time)
    C- = Charlies Angels : Full Throttle (Too over the top, the first one is better)
    C- = Spy Kids 3D : Game Over (3D effects were pretty good, but the story was not).
    D+ = Underworld (Pretty ridiculous movie and boring in parts)
    D+ =The Matrix Reloaded (Give the director's too much money and they go and screw things up)
    D+ = Lara Croft Tomb Raider (She's too cold a character to care about)
    D = 28 Days Later (Heard good reviews, boy were they wrong. Reminds me of Blair Witch Project, low budget, a lot of hype, good reviews, piece of crap)

    Updated to add Once Upon a Time in Mexico & Underworld

    I liked "The Matrix: Reloaded" and "28 Days Later".

    You rated "Bad Boys 2" and "2 Fast 2 Furious" at the top of your list just because it was "better than [you] thought"? So if you were disappointed in a movie you had higher expectations for, you'd stick it at the bottom of the list? I dunno - doesn't seem very objective to me.

    But I agree w/ you about both "Once Upon a Time in Mexico" and "Underworld".

    No actually the grades for each movie and the thoughts about them, are separate thoughts. Just because they were better than I thought, didn't mean that they got the much higher grades. Case in point Bad Boys 2. I didn't have much expectations that the movie would be good, because I really didn't like the original Bad Boys. Same with 2 Fast 2 Furious. I didn't think it would be that good without Vin Deisel, so I was expecting a 'C' movie. Since it actually held its own without Vin Deisel and I thoroughly enjoyed the outrageousness of the movie, I gave it an 'B+'. It's nowhere near one of my favorite movies of all time, but as a graded movie, I thought it was excellent entertainment.

    But that was a good question. Thanx!
