Fast & Furious 6 – This release is very bittersweet now on the heels of star Paul Walker’s tragic death. After the stellar “Fast 5,” it didn’t seem like the franchise could find a way to top it, but this is a series where the filmmakers fully understand the pulse of their audience and completely delivers. Of all the summer blockbusters, this was the one that left me the most satisfied and happy to pay to see again. And there’s the added bonus of being able to contribute to Walker’s charity when you buy it for home video.

Despicable Me 2 – Another fun adventure with Gru and the girls as he tries to track down a ruthless villain. The sequel misses a bit of the edge with Gru no longer being a despicable villain, but it’s still fun and I can seriously never get enough of the Minions so I loved it.

Battle of the Year – Chris Brown dancing and “Lost’s” Josh Holloway suave good looks weren’t enough to get anyone jumping for this doomed dance movie.  This is a “huh, this is on cable right now and I can’t be bothered to grab the remote since I’m about to fall out 10 minutes from now” kind of movie. Otherwise, don’t waste your money … or your time.
