A quick rundown of the summer movies I’ve seen, but have been too lazy to review on my blog

ClooneyKnocked Up
Meh. It has its funny moments, but I didn’t knock my socks off. Of course, I didn’t like The 40-Year-Old Virgin either. (The verdict: B-)

Ocean’s Thirteen
The perfect throwaway sequel. Two weeks after seeing it, I can barely remember anything about the movie other than the fact that I had fun watching it. Definitely an improvement over the dismal Ocean’s Twelve. (The verdict: B+)

1408
This was a halfway decent movie — literally. The tense build-up in the first half of the film was outstanding. I was fully prepared for Room 1408 to chew John Cusack up and spit him out. The second half, however, couldn’t deliver on the promise of the first. A psychological horror flick really shouldn’t get less compelling as it develops. (The verdict: C)

    I’ve wondered about all 3 of these movies. I think I’ll have to check them out for sure now, just because. :)

    Yeah, after Anchorman I kind of expected 40-year-old-virgin to be a riot, but it underperformed unexpectedly.

    And most heist movies are ultimately forgettable, along with stuff like Mission Impossible.

    *gasp* you didn’t like the 40 year old virgin? My ears!
