The June numbers are for the 2010 Movie Project are in! We saw a ton of movies in the theater last month. Mostly due to having withdrawal on our Great South Dakota Adventure. I had a fun time, but I did learn that pop culture is a harsh mistress. I missed my movies and cable…and internet…and magazines. We saw twelve movies in the theater in June, and EIGHT of them were after we got back from our trip (basically all in a 1.5 week period at the end of the month). I say it all the time, but the average American sees eight movies in the theater a year—we did that in a little over a week. It’s like a delightful, crazy sickness. I did finish reading The Girl Who Played With Fire on the trip, and I’m so (SO!) excited to see the movie.
As always, the listing of all the movies we saw in June is at the end of the post (after the jump). Onwards!
Movies, Genres, and Ratings
June was all good times. The best theater experience was Twilight: Eclipse, hands down. I sat next to a young dude and his ladyfriend. He was both a hoot as well as a yoot. During the Bella/Jacob kiss scene, right in the middle of the whole agnsty silence, he repeatedly exclaimed the following:
Passionate Yoot: Dont do it. You bitch. You bitch. You bitch. You bitch. No. No. No!!
His girlfriend: Shhhhhhhh! Shut up, you’re embarrassing me!!!!
Passionate Yoot: I don’t care. I’m really pissed about that. WHAT ABOUT EDWARD! That is bullshit.
Here are our picks for the best and worst theatrical releases of June:
Junkie1: Toy Story 3 & Jonah Hex, respectively. Ondine was fantastic, too.
ZRose25: Knight and Day & Splice
