Top summer flicks


Although most of the summers blockbusters have come and gone, its still not too late to catch some of this seasons hits. Too many to choose from? Well, dont despair. These Penn movie watchers can tell you the good from the bad. Oh, and while youre pondering which summer flick to catch, dont forget to bring extra change for the popcorn.

Planet of the Apes. It wasnt what I thought itd be. It wasnt as big. I thought it was mediocre.

Research Specialist, Wistar Institute

Rush Hour 2. I thought it was hysterical. It wasnt better than the first, but it was just as funny. I still think I can kick Jackie [Chans] booty.

American Pie 2. Awesome. It was better than the first because I could relate to it better.

Jurassic Park III. I didnt like it. It was too simplistic. Compared to the first, I thought it was worse.

Deep End. Its a thriller-mystery set on Tahoe, where the scenery is beautiful.

Rush Hour 2. I didnt like it as much as the first. When you see something the second time, its more or less the same.

The Others. That was great. You have to pay attention, dont miss anything.

Rush Hour 2. It was all right. It wasnt as good as the first. It wasnt as funny.

The Others was excellent. Its about the haunting of one particular house. Theres a surprise ending. Its very classic in a Hitchcock sort of way.

Security Guard, SpectaGuard

Rush Hour 2. I liked the part when Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan were dancing.

Ive only seen one movie this summer Planet of the Apes. I enjoyed it immensely. Ill rent the original eventually.
