    I don't know what they're talking about, this summer has been great to me. Every film I've been excited to see this summer, (John Wick: Chapter 3, Rocketman, Aladdin, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Dark Phoenix, Men In Black: International, Toy Story 4, Yesterday & Spider-Man: Far From Home) has been good to amazing. The one's I was on the fence about, (Long Shot, Pokemon, The Hustle, Brightburn, Ma, Late Night, Shaft, Annabelle Comes Home & Child's Play) were ok to a waste of time, with the exception of Booksmart which was amazing. So yeah, it's been a great summer to me.

    I saw John Wick 3 last night. The theather was full and it was a hot hot summer night. The movie delivered for me and it was pretty damn great

    Worked with a guy once with crazy nostril hairs...didnt want to make him cry, he was cool apart from that, got a cute girl from work that owed me a favour to subletly mention something on his face, made him aware of it.. It made him very conscious of it and he never had them again, he seemed happier!...do the same thing with the bio thing, it could work if done right!!

    Roxxy, September is Autumn, early fall Season... Summer Movie Season has always been May to August right! It has not been a great summer of films, ur right! Endgame was a spring film...Hobbs, Spiderman, Tarantino...thats it really!!

    Roxy, the 70’s version of I Spit On Your Grave is a little rough so you been warned. Lol.

    The lack of original content is catching up with Hollywood. Lion King & Aladdin - the live action versions, Toy Story 4, Secret Life of Pets 2, Fast & Furious Part 8, the 17th iteration of Godzilla, Child's Play (rebooted again), Spiderman (the 3rd iteration since 2002), Men in Black Part 5 another Pokemon film. When is Hollywood going to get it in its head that people's enthusiasm for films diminishes with constantly recycled material.

    A majority of the toxicity surrounding Collider comes specifically from the comments and "fan base". You guys don't like anyone on the show, ever. Today it's Roxy, tomorrow it's someone else.

    Endgame was such an event and such a good movie, that afterwards people just came down from that high and were not excited about the rest of the movie season. Its like reading the last page of the book first. You dont care about the rest of the book anymore

    Pluse I think these movies come out too close to each other.

  • Jay Marshall
    Jay Marshall 2 months ago

    I think at best some of these movies are mediocre and they're sequels no new material. Except for John Wick his movies keeps getting better and better.

  • Aussie Legend
    Aussie Legend 2 months ago

    Really seems like it was a summer of disappointing sequels/tentpoles mostly, not disappointing movies. Plenty of enjoyable stuff (even taking my own subjective opinion out of it, generally, they even list quite a few in the video lol)

    If marvel had not push up end game and kept it in May it would have helped Pokémon & Aladdin it would have stretched the
    Time until Spider-Man and lion king comes out so that to me is why the season is so dull because endgame should have energized the summer market instead of being a phenomenon in April

  • Stuntman Mike
    Stuntman Mike 2 months ago

    The biggest difference is that nowadays we don’t experience movies as a collective anymore.. the year Independence Day came out (like 97ish right?) you HAD to go to the theater to see it, and if you loved it you went back to the theater and saw it multiple times.. everyone was experiencing the movies at the same time and in the same way, nowadays there is so much tv and movies to watch 24/7, on your phone, ur laptop, ur tv, ur iPad, and lastly the movie theater.. so we all experience these movies differently now and at different times.. back in 97 when a huge blockbuster movie like Independence Day came out, EVERYONE in your community went to see it at the same theater, because what else was there to watch?? Nothing besides citcoms and even those only aired at a specific day and time... the internet has literally changed the fucking world and changed the way we do everything.. in some good ways and also in some really bad ways, but for better or worse it has changed the world we live in so much that if you brought someone back from the dead that died in 1998, it would be unrecognizable to them

    well for Godzilla 2 most American audiences and critics stink unless ur a fan or like kaiju films to normal fans who don't like it their opinions are null void imo that's y directors producers are afraid to commit to longer monster battles but critics and some audience said we need more humans better story news flash Godzilla films were never known for their story as for rest movies holly wood is lazy agenda pushing nowadays and less original ideas they rehash movies

    Reboots of reboots tends to get old really fast. There is no original thought with Hollywood writers and hasn't been for 10+ years now. Plus the social bubble they live in does not resonate with normal people.

    I think it's over saturation. Not saying it's the most movies ever, but so many that should the thing of the summer, but doesn't get chance before the next one

  • Nikunj Dixit
    Nikunj Dixit 2 months ago +1

    I think it’s because a bunch of these movies have bombed with the critics and audiences really hasn’t cared enough to watch them. KOTM disappointed me the most because it looked so awesome and it fell so flat. Dark Phoenix and MIB never looked good so not surprised they have done poorly. Aladdin was a big pleasant surprise. Wasn’t expecting it to be as fun as it was.

  • AP
    AP 2 months ago

    Nearly all of the noteworthy movies this year that have lined up around the summer are more exciting than the summer lineup itself. Especially when you count Endgame as a pre-summer film for its release date. The Lion King and Hobbs & Shaw will probably be the films that carry the summer experience out of its dry spell. John Wick was amazing, but too small-scale to match the kind of vibe the summer movie runs are known for.

  • Dinesh Rashid

    I feel like this question is being asked for movies that have only come out in the last 2 or 3 weeks rather than the entire season. And we’re not even half way through the summer yet so what gives?

    It hasn’t been a very good summer season at all, greedy studios and clueless executive producers interfering with the director/writers vision. People can tell in the previews if they are going to see a movie in the theaters or wait for it On Demand or Redbox, movie tickets are too expensive. The only movies I’ve seen this summer was Avengers, Rocketman and John Wick.

  • Rafael Miranda
    Rafael Miranda 2 months ago

    The answer to your question is because your expectations are too high. Godzilla is a great movie. John Wick is awesome, Aladdin is hitting $800 million. Endgame nuff said, pikachu is so far one of the best videogame movies ever if not the best. So I don’t know what you are talking about

    • ryan smith

      The summer of 1989 became the benchmark for summer movie seasons (and was like a sequel to 1984), and everything since has been compared to it.

    ugh Roxy is so damn dumb. she derails the conversation (as usual) by asking them try a piece of food, Kristian says not now to keep the show going, and she points out that he got mad for hot second.... shut up....
