June 2010 Movies

Okay, so Hot Tub Time Machine wasn't terrible, but it was a missed opportunity for greatness. Even The Onion agrees. The Brothers Bloom, however, was terribly disappointing, and doesn't at all help the contention that indie films are better than blockbuster ones. The sad thing is that most movies in the theaters aren't worth seeing at all, and the ones that may be worth watching aren't worth $10 or $12 per person. Let's face it, TV is better and costs less. Show me a movie that came out the last few months that's better than Breaking Bad. Also one-hour chunks are easier to digest when you got a littl'un who stays up till 8:30.

Having said that, I still love movies, especially shown on a REAL bigass IMAX screen (we've got a few of those here in our nation's capital). Here's my top 10 or so movies in/to be in theaters or on DVD to see, with movies in my collection starred:

1. Toy Story 3 IMAX (18 June)
2. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince*
3. Tron 2 (17 Dec)
4. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (13 Aug)
5. Inception IMAX (16 July)
