So the summer movie season in the States has wrapped-up... my quick rundown of what I saw:

Favorites:
INCREDIBLES 2 - Perfect blend of visuals, humor & score
2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (IMAX re-release) - A personal favorite, finally seen on the big screen

Enjoyable:
AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - Fun but exhausting
DEADPOOL 2 - Not as funny as Part 1
ANT-MAN & THE WASP - About as good as Part 1
TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES - Most laughs I had in the theater this summer

Mediocre:
SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY - Shockingly dull
JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM - Just really stupid
HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3: SUMMER VACATION - Not as funny as the first two, but typically great visuals

Pleasantly surprised:
THE MEG - Thought it would be crap--a solidly enjoyable time!

The worst:
CHRISTOPHER ROBIN - Can't even begin to list all the things that were wrong with this ill-conceived mess

What I ended up seeing:

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
DEADPOOL 2
SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY 
INCREDIBLES 2
JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM
ANT-MAN AND THE WASP
TEEN TITANS GO TO THE MOVIES
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT
CRAZY RICH ASIANS
SEARCHING (just saw this last night! Somehow got through half the movie before recognizing Debra Messing as the police detective.)

I generally liked everything I watched, the exceptions being:

JURASSIC WORLD - I had low expectations, and it somehow still managed to be dumber.
MI - FALLOUT - I didnít dislike it, but I was disappointed that the action took a step back to a Bourne-style Ethan Hunt making decisions in the spur of the moment, rather than the heist-oriented teamwork that they got right in MI3 and GHOST PROTOCOL.

I'll see Avengers and Ant-Man eventually. Everything else is a "maybe".

Only saw Ant Man & The Wasp in the movie theater this month. Nothing else so far.

Saw Avengers, MI Fallout, and Ant-Man and the Wasp.  Favorite was MI.  Still want to see Incredibles 2.

What I'll see on Netflix/DVD
  • JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM
  • THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME - I had planned to see this but I got busy with other things
  • OCEAN'S 8
  • SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO
  • THE MEG
  • MILE 22
  • CRAZY RICH ASIANS (might still see in the theatre)

What I won't bother seeing:
