So since summer is officially over I got to see every film on my Summer Preview list except for Lawless, The Watch, and The Amazing Spider-Man. I think that’s pretty good considering those were at the bottom of my list and my summer involved a lot of life changes for me.
After careful thought, my list of most anticipated films matched up well with how I would rank them, with some minor changes. Brave impressed me more than I was expecting. The Bourne Legacy disappointed more than the first trailer led me to believe. TDKR was very impressive but nothing I saw this summer was as good as Prometheus and Moonrise Kingdom.
For a recap here’s the Preview List:
10: The Amazing Spider-Man | 9: Lawless | 8: The Watch | 7: Brave | 6: The Bourne Legacy | 5: The Expendables 2 | 4: The Avengers | 3: Moonrise Kingdom | 2: Prometheus | 1: The Dark Knight Rises
And here’s how I would rank those movies after seeing them:
So I know my ties may seem like a cop-out but because Prometheus and Moonrise Kingdom are vastly different from each other, I equally enjoyed them in completely different ways. Same with TDKR and Avengers.
Were there any other surprise films this summer that I should catch? What ended up being your favorite movie of the summer? So many good ones to choose from.
