Damn summer. It gets us hard about hitting the multiplex, even though we know from experience that 90 percent of what we see will be supersize crap. Still, there's nothing like IMAX-big, Dolby-loud, school's-out escapism to bring out our inner geek. Hollywood's lined up more than 100 temptations: a prequel to Alien, a sequel to The Dark Knight, a remake of Spider-Man, an army of Avengers, plus stars (Downey! Sacha! Streep!), surprises (Tom Cruise sings!), Pixar dust in Brave and Oscar bait in Christopher Nolan's Knight and Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom. So here's my shortlist of summer movies (seen whole or in part) that may actually be worth getting gouged for the price of admission.
