Movie Catch Up

Summer movie season started early this year.  We've seen a bunch of movies lately, but didn't blog about them... here's a summary.

***** Life Changing Event
**** Excellent, Lots of Fun
*** Good, OK for DVD
** Not So Good, Boring
* Don't Ever See It

The images link to a NY Times overview.

Indi can still find the treasure and save the girl.
The Visitor Poster

The Visitor

****

About a man adrift who discovers new life.  Excellent acting.

It's also about immigration post-9/11.
Sex and the City Poster

***

It's a very long episode of the TV series, but fun.
Chronicles of Narnia Poster

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

**

One battle after another, without much of a story.
Iron Man Poster

Iron Man

****

Lots of fun.

Cast does an excellent job.
Under the Same Moon Poster

Under the Same Moon

***

A little too melodramatic and predictable, but still entertaining.

A little boy sneaks over the border from Mexico to the US and looks for his mother in Los Angeles.

Coming soon, and I hope they are good:  Wall-e - looks like it will be too cute for words;  and Hancock - every Summer Will Smith saves the world.  I love it.

Tomorrow is The Incredible Hulk.  It looks like my life consists of going to movies, and you might be right.
