OK, I completely agree with you on:

Brideshead Revisited
The Children of Huang Shi
The Dark Knight
When Did You Last See Your Father?
Step Brothers

I liked the following less than you did:

Tell No One
Pineapple Express
Hellboy II
Transsiberian
The Wackness
Tropic Thunder

I liked the followwing more than you did:

Mamma Mia!

THE MUMMY I will not see, same for STAR WARS.

Still I saw eye to eye with you on enough I think.

To escape the summer movie blues, I frequented Tucson's arts house cinema, The Loft.

For serious drama and courageous, Oscar worthy acting, I took in "When Did You Last See Your Father."

For one of the most romantic relationships in a romantic comedy, I enjoyed Helen Hunts, "Then She Found Me." (Though Bette Midler is predictably over the top...)

For good hearted humor (and lots of it) check out the waste management mockumentary, "Kenny."

For life affirming beauty, there's, "Brick Lane."

To affirm the good in people, may I suggest "The Visitor."

Movie blessings!
