On May 2nd I posted my list of Vomit Inducing Summer Movies. The last of those films, Beerfest is released in theaters today.
Of the 17 films on the list, I saw 2 of the films. Both at the invitation of others. In both cases I enjoyed the films. Those two films were... Wordplay& Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.
Not Even a 2006 Film:
No one had a chance to see The Reaping, although I caught the trailer a few times, this Hillary Swank film about the plagues has had multiple release date changes and is now coming out March 2007.
The Box Office Speaks:
Currently The Break-up & Talladega Nights are the highest grossing films of the 17 on the list. Poseidon with it's $160 million dollar production budget only gross $60 million.
The Tomatoes Speak:
The 16 movies (The list of 17 minus The Reaping) in order of freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
95% fresh: Wordplay (read note above...saw it and loved it)
