Summer Blockbusters...

So, I used to have this addiction of going to the movies, a lot... when I lived in DC 2 summers ago I think I averaged 5 movies, in the movie theatre, every month. Needless to say, upon moving to NYC I decided I should probably take it easy, save some money, etc., so I joined NetFlix which per month cost the same as going to the movies once, and I could get about 8 movies instead. Well, The addiction has sort of returned, and at the perfect time, too, because there are a lot of great movies coming out this summer! In the past two weeks I've seen 3...

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspiancute and interesting... a little different from the book, but it was always my least favorite of the Narnia books so I think they did a good job. I especially liked the flying Griffon's and the costumes... the animation was okay... I'm totally over the two oldest Pevensie children, at the perfect time too since the next movie should only feature Lucy and Edmund.

Iron Man
uh-mazing... loved it. I want to go see it again in the theatre... and if you saw the American Idol finale, I think we can all agree that Robert Downey Jr. is awesome. A+ animation, it was cast perfectly, and the story line was unique. It's a must see.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skullcrazy good, and really funny. I think Shia LaBeouf did a great job as "Mutt". It walked the sci-fi line quite a bit, but all those Indy movies are crazy, right? And besides, I love sci-fi. Cate Blanchett did a great job as the bad guy.. girl.

Steven Spielberg is SO good at what he does, I love all his movies. Some of my top fave's...

Jurassic Park (no brainer)
War of the Worlds (out of this world AMAZING)
Minority Report


If you haven't you should should see all of these. :)

Ok so I LOVED Iron Man - Robert Downy Jr has been a hottie since 'Chances Are' with Cybil Sheppard (80's or 90's?) but I was not so into the Indiana Jones movie - Bor-ing! Maybe cause I can't remember the earlier ones so I didn't really get it. Kinda silly - and the sci fi part was so wierd, like out of nowhere there's aliens!? (I thought they were african tribal sculls or something). But you do LOVE the sci fi Ash! I'm glad you enjoyed them all! An R.D. Jr. was so cute on AI with the dancing with jack black and stiller - loved it!
