    Summer Movie Grades

    How do you rank the new releases you've seen this summer? Let's see everyone's opinions while some of these movies are still in theaters.

    A-: Finding Nemo
    B+: Seabiscuit, X2:X-Men United
    B: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
    B-: 28 Days Later, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
    C+: The Italian Job
    C:
    C-: The Matrix Reloaded*, Bruce Almighty
    D+:
    D: Hollywood Homicide, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

    *Matrix Reloaded really deserves an Incomplete until I see Revolutions.
    Tugboats and arson. That's all I ever get from you guys.

    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- = Finding Nemo (Maybe a little too scary for kids under 7)
    C+ = Kangaroo Jack (Don't remember too much about it, but it was funny)
    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)
    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)

    Still want to see: X2 & Spy Kids 3D.

    Of course these are just my opinions, YMMV!

    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- =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+ =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)

    I haven't made it to the movies even to see ONE Blockbuster... Is that a felony?

    Yes. Everyone is Required to put as much money out to the MPAA as they can. This is the law.
