a midsummers recap

we've seen superheros, pirates, vice presidents and models, has this summers slew of blockbusters lived up to the hype? no. i'm pretty disapointed with the selection from the first half of this summer (especially with the blockbusters). They definitely delivered with CGI and time in the seats (all three blockbusters were over 200 minutes!) but they were short on plot, acting, and a few other things. here are my winners and losers from the first half of the summer:

(based on movies that came out from 6/1 to 7/20)

Best actor: William Hurt (The King)
Best actress: Meryl Streep (The Devil Wears Prada)
Best Drama: The King
Best comedy: Nacho Libre (what a surprise)
Best documentary: An Inconvenient truth
Best action movie: Superman 3
Worst actor: a tie. Matt Dillon (You me and Dupree) and Orlando Bloom (pirates of the Carribean)
Worst actress: Kate Bosworth (Superman 3)
Worst comedy: You Me and Dupree

What we have to look forword to:
1) little miss sunshine 2) talladega nights, 3) lady in the water 4) scoop, 5) world trade center, 6) miami vice
many of these are very iffy, im guessing that three out of these six will dissapoint!
