Summer 2007 Movies

I normally don’t watch many summer movies because most of them are usually stupid, or bad. This year under the influence of the husband I went out and saw quite a few. It was no doubt one of the better summers. Along with other films I saw earlier and later this year, here are my rankings, from best to worst (some are really hard to compare with each other but):

  • Atonement
  • Lust, Caution
  • The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
  • Ratatouille
  • Waitress
  • The Bourne Ultimatum
  • Live Free or Die Hard
  • Juno
  • Once
  • I Am Legend
  • Sicko
  • Transformers
  • Knocked Up
  • Ocean’s Thirteen
  • Shrek 3

Wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I also got an unexpected “souvenir” from a kayak-hiking-river-crossing trip: mosquito bites! A whopping 40 of them!! All within one hour of walking in the woods! My legs and arms looked like, well, I can’t think of anything that looks quite like them. It’s quite a sight.
