For the first time in months the temperature outside actually feels a little like Fall. If you’re like me you anticipate the arrival of the autumnal equinox with great enthusiasm. Fall means cooler temperatures, football season, sweaters, and more adult-targeted movies in theatres. I know there are others who lament the end of Summer more than me, movies being not the least of their reasons. For this week’s poll we want to force you to pretend that Summer is over already.
Summer of 2012 was one of the most financially successful of all-time thanks in large part to The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises, both among the top 15 highest grossing movies of all-time. Six movies from the Summer of 2012 have made more than $200 million at the Box Office which just adds to the dynamite year we have had. However, money is great for Hollywood, but we want to know about the quality of Summer movies. Are they better than average? Worse?
We want to hear your responses and your reasoning. Vote in the poll below and share your thoughts in the comments section! Be sure to name a few specific movies to support your claim. Phil and Alex will share their opinions on next week’s podcast. Your answer may be read on the Film Misery Podcast next week!
