Films in Order from Good to Bad, June-July 2010

Recent studies suggest that motion pictures should be rated with more precision than the classic SUPERBLOG!! Five-Keaton Scale affords. Thus, for this post at least, the "MK5" (as it is known in the business) will be retired, and replaced with the supposedly superior "MK10" scale. Just watch:
