Well, summer 2013 has come to an end. I cannot wait to see "World's End" and then that's it for me. But as I don't know when I will be seeing it, I can't review it.
My biggest regret of this summer has been neglecting this blog and Tarantino Month which turned into Tarantino Summer (and I botched that too), but life has been keeping me busier. Busier than it has been in a very long time. But in a good way. This has been a great summer, and a great year.
The summer's two biggest highlights for me are buying a house... becoming a property owner. It's a big step in the game of Life. New house and a new car. The other one is the release of "Gargoyles: Season Two, Volume Two." While I am not so obsessed with this show that I consider that greater than owning a home, it makes me happy; I've waited eight years for it... and now I have the complete run of my favorite show of all time (I know I put "The Daily Show" ahead of it when I made my Favorite Shows post, but who the hell was I kidding?). I also attended Connecticon and met Doug Walker and got to hang out with Marina Sirtis.
I hung out with a lot of friends this summer, met some new ones. So, overall, I can't complain. It's been good.
Now comes the part where I rank the summer movies. Well, the ones I saw, anyway.
Iron Man 3 - 4/5
Star Trek: Into Darkness - 1/5
Man of Steel - 1/5
Much Ado About Nothing - 5/5
Pacific Rim - 4/5
The Butler - 3/5
I didn't get to see everything. I had no interest in "The Wolverine" and I am waiting for "Kick Ass 2" to hit the second run theater. My opinion on "Man of Steel" has actually managed to lower since it came out and I thought about it more... don't ask why, I am finished discussing that movie. I look forward to "Thor: The Dark World" and I really am looking forward to "The Desolation of Smaug."
Great summer, I hope for more like it.
