I never used to go to the movies too much, but since movie-watching is one of Kyle's all-time favorite things and something we like to do together, it seems like we've been going almost non-stop this summer. I've really enjoyed our movie-watching experience and am very, very sad that our day trips to an empty theater has to end! With coupons for free popcorn and drinks and reduced matinee prices, it made seeing all of the summer movies fairly affordable!
So, in a nutshell, here are our summer movie-watching stats:
Movies we saw so far this summer: 11 (Thor, The Conspirator, X-Men: First Class, Green Lantern, Super 8, Harry Potter 7 Part 1 (combo deal), Harry Potter 7 Part 2 (twice), Captain America, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Cowboys and Aliens)
Movies we still need to see this summer: 2 (The Help, Crazy Stupid Love...and we're trying hard to find time to fit them in!)
Movie we should have watched this summer (but didn't): 1 (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides)
Favorite movie of the summer: Super 8 (no questions about it!)
Movies we still want to see this year: 8 (Contagion, The Three Musketeers, New Year's Eve, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, The Adventures of Tintin, We Bought a Zoo, and War Horse)
Next summer is supposed to be good, too! We're looking forward to The Avengers, Men in Black 3, The Amazing Spiderman, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Bourne Legacy as well as James Bond 23 in November...
Hurray for summer movies!
