SUMMER BLOCKBUSTERS, RATED

@alien and I love hitting summer movies on the big screen. We're suckers for a scifi or action flick in IMAX. Some wonders, for sure, but disappointments, too.
  1. 1.
    Mad Max: Fury Road
    Without question, a true achievement - technically, in storytelling, in making us care about the characters, and in pure adrenaline awesomeness. Batshit crazy brilliance, with a warm, mushy heart.
  2. 2.
    Inside Out
    So much emotional depth. So many tears.
  3. 3.
    Ant Man
    Paul Rudd kills it, and the story clips along so well. That perfect balance of action and humor. I have serious feelings for Evangeline Lilly. Damn.
  4. 4.
    Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
    Not quite up to Ghost Protocol's flawless storytelling, but compelling and fun, with a team you root for (Simon Pegg steals it again).
  5. 5.
    Avengers: Age of Ultron
    Awesome to have the band back together, and some marvelous set pieces. People complained about too much action - fuck that, bring it on! Sadly, the whole thing did feel bloated by the end.
  6. 6.
    The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
    Felt like a first generation Bond movie, and we loved the style and grace. Fun story, too. The leads didn't have a ton of charisma, sadly.
  7. 7.
    Jurassic World
    A fun and exciting retread. @alien LOVED the dino-a-dino action, especially the mosasaur. And we'd watch Chris Pratt eating Cheerios.
  8. 8.
    Terminator Genisys
    Fuck. What a disappointment. We left feeling angry. They messed with the timeline, the movie didn't make sense, and everyone except Ahnold (who was the only good thing about the movie) kind of sucked.
  9. 9.
    Fantastic Four
    (Didn't bother seeing it, actually.)
