In order to avoid bucking tradition, I present the latest edition of "The Summer So Far"!! "X-Men: The Last Stand": A lot of cool action and some cool new characters overcome a weak script and uninspired acting. Plus the fact that the production went through so much crap (i.e. new director, new writers, Halle Berry)and the movie turned out pretty good means that the film-makers deserve a little tip of the hat. B. "Over The Hedge": Nothing new. It's the same nature vs. humanity-type conflict you've seen depicted in the movies over and over again. The characters are well-rendered and the voice actors do a good job. It's a fun film to look at. Not a bad way to kill two hours if you get bored. Real bored. B-. "Cars": These cars talk so much, KITT would be jealous. "Cars" is a funny, colorful, visually arresting flick that actually meanders along at a fairly leisurely pace. It's a nice change from hyper-fast plotted flicks that normally dominate the summer. The characters are likable, the voice acting is good, and it's really just a lot of fun. A-. "Nacho Libre": Holy crap! This is such a silly flick. Jack Black stars as a friar in an orphanage who wants to be a wrestler. Black is hilarious, as usual, and the guy who plays Esqueleto is a hoot, too. There are some seriosly funny wrestling sequences (Look out for Satan's Cavemen!!). And there's a pretty good message there, too, if you're looking for that sort of thing... A-. Upcoming: Click, Superman Return, and some other stuff too.
