The Weekly Rhetoric: Is Summer 2012 the Most Disappointing Summer of Film Ever?

Geek Binge: Today is Labor Day which, in Hollywood talk at least, marks the final day of the Summer Movie Season. For those who don’t really keep track, the Summer Movie Season works as such; the season opens with a big film the first week of May, continues on through June, gets HUGE in July, and starts to peter off in August. And then, once the last weekend of August is over, the Summer Movie Season is done. And the industry moves into the Fall. So I thought for the first iteration of The Weekly Rhetoric, we would dive into Summer 2012 in movies: the successes, failures, and everything in between. And then I noticed something interesting about this Summer of film: it freaking sucked.

The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spider-Man, Ted and Prometheus made this summer movie season a pretty solid least in our opinion it did.

TheCritic282294d ago

But that's the thing; I (and many others) disliked a huge majority of those movies intensely. Very divisive Summer for sure.

TheDailySuperHero2294d ago

Sounds like you need to be less of a critic then. (Get it?! Haha.)

I'm with Critic28 - Batman was one of the most disappointing films I've ever seen. Amazing Spider Man was mediocre and cut WAY too much vital content. And Prometheus was riddled with Damon Lindeloff nonsense - something many like, but not I.

I wouldn't go so far to say it's the worst Summer ever. Remember Summer 2012 with:

Sex and the City 2
Iron Man 2 (though I still kind of liked it)
Prince of Persia
Shrek Forever After
The Karate Kid
The A-Team
Jonah Hex
Grown Ups
The Last Airbender
The Other Guys
Vampires Suck

THAT was a bad Summer.

TheCritic282293d ago

Err...good point. But then again, every one of those other Summers had at least a couple stand out films...I was hard pressed to find one.

TheCritic282293d ago

Oh, and I like MacGruber. And A-Team!
