2014 Summer Movie Roundup, High School Superlatives Edition
This weekend sees the release of the last of the big summer movies, THe Expendables 3 and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. After that it’s a bunch of dull shit until awards season kicks into gear (for the most part—can’t forget about Dolphin Tale 2!).
But September being a pit of despair, film-wise, does have the upside of giving our wallets time to recover from the summer movie season. There was good. There was bad. Let’s relive it all with HIGH SCHOOL SUPERLATIVES.

Most Wasted Potential
Luc Besson made “Scarlett Johansson Kicking Ass: The Movie,” and somehow it still sucked.
Most Likely to Succeed
In general. At all things.
Fucked up, Dreamworks.
“Wait, they went to school here?”
Worst Person In the World
Most Likely to Become An Axe Murderer
Disagree with my choices? Take a hike! Or tell me what you’d have picked instead. I am a kind, reasonable person. *eyedart*
