X-Men: Days of Future Past is the best, followed closely by Edge of Tomorrow.

Summer season now begins in April as proven with 300, Fast and Furious, Oz the Great and Powerful and once again this year with Captain America: Winter Soldier.

Which would be my 2nd choice behind Guardians.

Guardians, X-Men, and Chef. Unfortunately missed Edge of Tomorrow but I'm dying to see it.

The worst trash I saw this summer was Maleficent. The worst! UGH!!!

This was a great year for movies. I mean that. I saw so many films this Summer (and spring) that I loved.
I loved Godzilla, X-Men Days Of Future Past, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, The Amazing Spider-man 2, Lucy, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Captain America Winter Soldier. I still haven't seen Edge Of Tomorrow but I will soon.
Guardians Of The Galaxy was so fun. Captain America Winter Soldier was really wonderful.

X-Men: Days of Future Past was the best film of the summer, and Edge of Tomorrow was a close second.

Though it wasn't the best film of the summer, my favorite film is Godzilla. That film brought out the 6 year old in me. I'd follow it with X-men Days of Future Past and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes for my Top 3.

In any case, there are going to be a lot of great Blu Rays to purchase in the coming months.

How did I know the fanboys would rate films like GOTG and X-Men: DOFP at the top? Heaven forbid these goofballs ever branch out and watch a better film like A Most Wanted Man.

Edge of Tomorrow, Guardians of the Galaxy, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and X-Men: DoFP. Don't know if Cap 2 counts as a Summer movie, but I gave that the same score (9/10) as those four.

Gave Godzilla, Maleficent and Chef 8 out of 10.

Least favourite: Transformers: Age of Extinction, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, TMNT, Expendables 3, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. All 5 out of 10.

Fuck apes and xmen, overrated trash.

Xmen is one of the worst adaptation ever to be put out there. Terrible movie!

I have seen the majority on this list and liked many of them but I had the best time watching "Into the Storm." Only film this summer I went and watched twice. Entertaining all the way through it and kept my attention both times. I almost skipped on this film because of the "found footage" aspect (I despise found footage movies) but it was hardly at all. You don't even realize that's what it is while watching it. Highly recommend this film while it is in theaters!

Why bother, GOtG should walk away with this voting.
I thought it was a great film if a bit overpraised maybe.
Depressing that Transformers 4 will likely be the #! moneymaker for the season.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Followed by Guardians Of The Galaxy, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Transformers: Age Of Extinction and don't hate me but hey I really loved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

My daughter and I really enjoyed it too. I'm trying to figure out how anyone could think the old "slow guys in a bulky rubber suit" movies were any better. I did enjoy the first one with April and Jones but mostly because it told a good story.....the action completely sucked (especially Splinter vs Shredder).

Not voting because I only saw GotG. If Snowpiercer hadn't been out in my area for only one week I probably would've gone to see that one, too. But a few of these are going to definitely be on my rental list.

Godzilla for me, closely followed by gotg. The rest was rather disappointing.

I put Godzilla as my #1 because it was so much fun to see in the theater (in an IMAX). I'd say Guardians was a much better movie, but I'll probably watch Godzilla more on DVD.

Planet Of The Apes was the best "movie" out of them all, but after seeing it once I have no desire to ever see it again. Dreary and depressing, but extremely well done.

Begin Again

I love a great indie, and this one hit all the right notes.

But after Begin Again, my other favorites are Wish I Was Here, Boyhood, Guardians of the Galaxy, Edge of Tomorrow, Captain America: Winter Soldier, and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

I don't think Cap qualifies as a summer movie. There was still snow on the ground when it came out....

Snowpiercer

...it might have come out earlier, but it was still the best movie I saw this summer.

X-Men & Guardians

So many great blockbusters this year!
X-Men: Days of Future Past & Guardians of the Galaxy are both amazing movies!
How to Train Your Dragon 2, Edge of Tomorrow , Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Godzilla were all pretty great.
Amazing Spider-Man 2 was the biggest dissapointment of the summer.
