Liz's Summer Movie Report Card (so far):
mark out of 10
Iron Man expected: 6.5, actual: 8 (difference +1.5)
Prince Caspian expected: 8, actual: 5.5 (difference -2.5)
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull expected: 7, actual: 7 (difference 0*)
Kung Fu Panda expected: 6, actual: 7 (difference +1)
Get Smart expected: 9, actual: 8 (difference -1)
Wall-E expected: 7.5, actual: 9 (difference +1.5)
Wall-E has definitely been the highlight this summer, though I was pleasantly surprised by both Iron Man and Kung Fu Panda. Don't get me wrong, Get Smart was awesome, but I had very high expectations for it too. There might be a lot of that going on this summer. Not that there are any other movies (possibly opening this week) that have unbelievably high expectations...
The Dark Knight expected: 9
Also have some "want to see"s with medium to low expectations. Yes I go see movies that I think will suck. Nothing lower than a 3, unless I'm dragged kicking and screaming by friends who insist that "Dude Where's My Car?" looks "funny"
Clone Wars expected: 6
Hamlet 2 expected: 4 (maybe?)
Also kind of want to see Towelhead if it makes it to a theatre-near-me.
*Oh and yes. I got EXACTLY what I expected from Indiana Jones. No more, no less.
