    my favorites this year were...

    Star Trek Into Darkness... was just one freaking fun ride... saw it in IMAX

    We're The Millers... silly high concept but hilarious and sweet and that joke at the very very end is hysterical

    Blue Jasmine - this movie freaked me out and Cate Blanchette is fucking amazing

    2 Guns was so much fun. Great action thriller and funny.

    Monsters University was terrific... not as good as Inc but a different genre as the first...a riff on college comedy and really really good


    I guess I had one of each... Scifi, Comedy, Drama, Action, Animated

    I didn't see all the ones on your list but agree with Star Trek-Into Darkness. Just frikking awesome, a masterfully made sequel to the 2009 film. Perfect casting, great special effects, one exciting ride.

    Star Trek into the Darkness is definitely up there, and We're the Millers was funny (minus the scenes with Jennifer Aniston dancing in scant clothing). Other than those two, I really enjoyed:

    - The Great Gatsby

    - Kick-Ass 2

    - This is the End

    - The Wolverine

    I only saw 4 movies this summer, and each were good in their own way.

    Star Trek Into Darkness-loved. One word=Cumberbatch

    This Is The End-Hilarious, profane.

    The World's End-see above.

    Blue Jasmine-intense and amazing. Blanchett was a marvel.

    Going to see Pacific Rim tonight with my son. He's seen it once, and raves, but then again, he's a teenage boy. We'll see . . .

    Only seen 4 American movies this year so far, none of which is like amazing to me:

    Man of Steel - fun, scifi inspired
    Identity Theft - silly fun
    Wolverine - action packed, Hugh's hairy chest steals the show, otherwise kinda dumb
    Jobs - did a good job telling the part of Steve Jobs' story (pre-2000) that people don't know much about
