Star Wars - Episode II: Attack of the Clones - I pulled this DVD from my movie library and watched it last week. Seeing it again after being burned and burned out after Lucas's prequels, without the thrill of excitement that there's a new Star Wars film to watch that went with this film's debut, I can see so clearly now that it was written and squarely aimed for six year olds. I just never saw as clearly before than I can today. Kinda sad, but very enlightening.
Green Lantern - I told my friends last night I'd give it 3 out of 4, but since we tore it apart after the movie, I'd agree it probably only deserves 2.5 out of 4. Love the recent comic book stories, and this film pulled a lot from them and also changed some details too, for the better. The cast was great (Blake Lively was much, much better than I expected) and the effects were great too! (We chose not to see it in 3D.) As a huge DC Comics fan, I wish I could say it's the best superhero film I saw this summer, but that honor goes to X-Men: First Class for now. But my friends and I were thoroughly entertained, and a couple of us are thinking we'll see it again in theatres. We definitely felt it was much better than what critics are saying about it.
