(I…I don’t know how to make memes that have two pictures.)

In the past, I have put together serious considerations of which summer movies I’m going to go and see, but this year, things have been made more difficult.

Sigh. It used to be so easy.

At some point, in the distant past, movies didn’t use to cost $11, you see. Tell your grandchildren that. But it’s summer movie season in 2011, and so we’re pretty well screwed. It doesn’t matter that I’ve sworn off seeing the 3D version of things, because I know by and large that’s just a waste of $3. This time of year where you’re not just watching a movie – you’re buying snacks, too.

Art is an aggregation of imperfect efforts to achieve an unattainable ideal! So, to business.
