Top 10 Summer Movies: What Blockbuster Is Best?

by at . Comments

It is a sad time for fans of the warmer months as Labor Day arrives. But, it is a chance to look back on what was the hottest in film for the summer movie season.

Movie Fanatic has seen it all and yes, this summer was not on par with the legendary summer of exactly four decades ago. 1982 saw E.T., Blade Runner, The Road Warrior, Rocky III, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Poltergeist, The Thing and Fast Times at Ridgemont High delight audiences.

This past season was still pretty solid and possessed some serious surprises. Here are the Top 10 Summer Movies of 2012:

10. The Bourne Legacy
Jeremy Renner effortlessly stepped into a franchise made famous by Matt Damon. The Bourne Legacy was a leaner effort than the first trilogy and effectively set up the series for the Renner era. Rachel Weisz was astounding as Renner’s helper/love interest and the action continued to push the envelope as the series has always done.
