Diane (Yippy)

How do you all remember WHEN you saw something? The only movie I remember seeing in the summer was JAWS and that's only because I was crammed in a car at the old Drive In Theatre and got attacked by screaming girls when JAWS surfaced. I know I've seen a bazillion since then, but I wouldn't know what I saw when (except Lord of the Rings, because of the anticipation, & all Disney movies that came out in December in time for my son's birthday).


I don't remember which movies I've seen are summr ones or not, but here are some horrible ones and some great ones

Great: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; Transformers; Enchanted(I know this one's not a summer blockbuster, but it was awesome); Shrek

Horrible: Nacho Libre (GAG!!!! The worst movie I ever saw, literally. I didn't even atch the end); The Ring (ver scary, but boring otherwise); any of the Scary Movies


Best: Star Wars
Worst: can't recall


Worst: Snakes on a Plane *but I did have a good laugh*

Best: I'd have to say either Transformers *released on my birthday, 2007* or Talladega Nights *released my sister's birthday 2006*


For this summer, I'd say... Iron Man is the best so far and the worst... The Strangers, as far as movies I've seen this summer.

Best: Spiderman
Worst: The Bad News Bears Go to Japan


Best: Star Wars (I was eight and it changed everything)
Worst: Matrix Reloaded (So bad that I have never bothered to see
the third one)

David Huey

thanks for the credit for the ajc story!

Best: Braveheart
Worst: Alexander

Joe Tolley

Best: Jurassic Park

Worst: I'm still seeing counseling about Armageddon.

Out of category, but check out "King of Kong," if you haven't already. Painfully hilarious.


Best: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (the first two prequels might not have been that great, but for me, Revenge of the Sith delivered)
Worst: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

DeWayne Hamby

Best: Die Hard
Worst: Speed 2: Cruise Control


Wow... I don't go to to many movies (the last one was The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe) so I don't even recall what was a summer blockbuster, vs. any other time of year. I did really like Batman Begins, though. I saw a really bad dragon movie last year (I'll have to find the title) but I don't think it was a blockbuster. LOL

Someone mentioned Raiders of the Lost Ark, and that was definitely a great summer blockbuster.


Best: E.T.

Worst: The Day After Tomorrow


best: die hard 4
worst: wedding crashers - does this count as a summer blockbuster? it was all hyped up and then was too long and not that funny.


Mark, Batman Begins has the distinction of a summer flick with a big budget and things getting blown up, but it does have a good plot. It is also one of my all-time favorite summer time flicks.

Also on my list:

Shrek (the original)
Raiders of the Lost Ark (also the original)

jarrod morris

Best: Iron Man

Worst: Indiana Jones 4

Tom Soto

Best: Jaws (Dating myself, but really got us thinking about the water especially here in California)

Worst: Wild, Wild West (Horrible, enough said!)


Can't decide on 'Best' yet - but the first 'Worst' that comes to mind is the new 'Zohan' movie.

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
