Ok, this list may not accurately reflect the opinions of Day-Vuh or Bubba, but they are my opinions, and therefore the correct ones. Here’s my rankings of the summer flicks so far.
#1 Shrek 2 ‚Äì This was a thoroughly entertaining movie. Overall I’d say the first one is a better film‚Ä¶ but the second one had me laughing a lot more. You have to see it more than once to catch all the little stuff they put in the film for you to see. Some of it is just side splitting.
#2 Van Helsing ‚Äì No, this was not a great film‚Ä¶ maybe not even a good one. However, the sheer volume of decent visual effects and good action sequences at least had me enjoying myself. A decent “Turn off your brain and just enjoy the eye candy” kind of summer film.
#3 Troy ‚Äì This film should have been so much better. I was disappointed to say the least. Eric Bana (The Hulk) completely steals the show from Brad Pitt (not an easy thing to do) and Orlando Bloom. This was easily Bana’s movie. The story of Troy is a compelling one‚Ä¶ but the movie is not.
Next week I’ll update this ranking to include The Day After Tomorrow, Garfield, The Chronicles of Riddick and The Stepford Wives (they all look terrible, but who knows).
