Summer Movie MVPs


This is straight out of the archives. At the end of every summer I usually recap it with my "Summer movie Report Card". I thought it would be fun to post past winners of the "A" grade. Which is basically my own opinion of what were the best of the best. Summer is usually lacking in quality for film but these films defied logic and aimed for the sky. I usually bitch and bitch about the countless atrocities I watch every summer but, truth be told, there diamonds in the ruff. Take not, i didn't make one for 2011 but I'm tempted to try and sort the titles out and come up with a few titles.
