I know, I know. It’s been a long time since I’ve done this. So before we get back in the routine, let’s sum up this summer’s blockbuster releases. As these are blockbusters we’re talking about, we’ll keep with the spirit of excess by citing two sentences instead of just one. Enjoy!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: Umbrige showed up and it turned into a portal of death! she changed the school with 100 laws (litterally!). — Star Point Mansion

Live Free or Die Hard: What could be better then totally ripped shirtless men in capes killing hordes of men and monsters alike using only their spears and the sheer power of movie slow-motion magic, you ask? A severely bald man and the Mac is what! — Scott’s Digital Blog

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End: At one point Jack is having a discussion with himself, and out of nowhere a “good Jack” and “bad Jack” come out to offer advice to the real Jack Sparrow. Personally, I thought it was pretty gay and didn’t fit in with anything they had done in these movies previously. — I’m Bringing Ugly Back

The Simpsons: Interestingly, Xiaxue and her ang moh boyfriend just so happen to sit in front of us. They look really loving by the way – doesn’t seem like a crappy Sarong Party Girl relationship a lot of people are accusing her of. — Alvinology

Transformers: And really the decision of making them the same as the 1980’s models would have doomed the movie because no one wants to see a couple of blocks of metal put together in a block shape moving and fighting, those shapes were good for the 80’s but we are in the 21st century and the models managed to mature nicely. Jazz and Bumble Bee were the coolest of the bunch but no one can deny that Optimus Prime and Megatron’s battle was by all means “Epic”. —  Diaries
