Did Not Like
The Hangover Part II

I really want to see Horrible Bosses, Fright Night, and Attack the Block. I forgot to talk about Super 8. I absolutely loved it and think the over-analytical criticisms got kind of out of control. Most movies start to crumble when put through the scrutiny folks give them these days. I think that takes the fun out of them. If I was the same age when I saw Super 8 as I was when I first saw The Goonies, it would have made my head explode twice. It would have inspired me just as Goonies did to have wild and crazy adventures with my friends, to explore the unknown. Those kids were fantastic and I don't want to live in a world where the idea that a bunch of kids having a totally amazing adventure in the summer isn't awesome and is picked apart until there is nothing left. You can have that if that's what you want. I'll be over here having fun and letting my imagination run free.

/end rant

So anyways, there are some movies I didn't see because I find these days that about half way through the summer I kind of burn out on going to the movies and have no patience to see something I am pretty sure I will not like and pay way too much money to have to deal with people being jerks in public. That's just me though.

Re: Horrible Bosses, it has its moments, especially what’s his name… I think it’s Charlie Day. But just see It at the cheap theater.
