Wherein I frighten you with my obsessive list-making skillz and my bad taste in movies

All lists are based on the movies released in May, June, July, and August according to this list.

Wide Release Movies I Saw This Summer
rated in order of how much I liked them and since I'm not very good at deciding how much I like things this is based on whether I'll rewatch it or not:

1. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (bonus award: most anticipated summer movie)
2. Sex and the City: The Movie (second most anticipated)
3. Wall-E
4. Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
5. Get Smart
6. Mamma Mia
7. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
8. What Happens in Vegas
9. The House Bunny

Further disclaimer: I actually enjoyed all of these movies, so I felt bad ranking them. This was a good summer for movies. Also, I don't really rewatch movies so I don't know why I thought that would be a good way to rank. I HATE RANKING. IT SUCKS.

Limited Release Movies I Saw This Summer:
Henry Poole is Here
I totes feel guilty about this category because, hi, I live in the capital of limited release movies. I take it for granted.

How Much I Spent on Movies This Summer:
$75 exactly which is about $8.30 per movie
Not bad. Most I spent for a movie was $14, least was $2.

Movies I Meant to See But Fell Through the Cracks:
Iron Man
Made of Honor
Son of Rambow
Kung Fu Panda
Kit Kittridge: An American Girl
Pineapple Express

At $8.30 a movie I saved myself about $70!

No One I Know Saw These Wide Release Movies:
Speed Racer
You Don't Mess With the Zohan
The Happening
The Love Guru
Meet Dave
Swing Vote
Tropic Thunder
The Rocker
Death Race
The Longshots
Babylon AD
Disaster Movie

Wide-Release Movies I Totally Had Zero Interest in Seeing
(in addition to the above list):

The Strangers
The Incredible Hulk
Hellboy II
Journey to the Center of the Earth
The Dark Knight
Step Brothers
X-Files (sorry, Ashley)
The Mummy
Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Clearly, I don't like scary movies or comic book movies. I actually tend to enjoy comic book movies once I'm watching them, but they are never on my "must see list" which is always so long that I never stretch my comfort zone.
