Big, Amazing Movies
It was a big summer for big, important movies. The Harry Potter series officially came to a heartbreaking, but hopeful end. Steve Rogers won us over and made us clamoring for more (and then The Avengers started shooting and we got it). We’ll even give Thor credit for just being Thor (despite having a pointless romance in it, as much as we enjoy Natalie Portman). And The Muppets made us remember why we love the Muppets, and why they remain relevant in every way (thanks to Jason Segel, who treated the script with loving kid gloves). X-Men: First Class helped us forget X-Men: The Last Stand just enough. And Rise of the Planet of the Apes even impressed us. (I’ll even cast votes for Scream 4 and Fright Night.) It sure felt like a good time at the movies this year, even if there were some duds. (See our next list for those.)
