For a long time, I had an objective standard for rating the quality of a movie. If the soundtrack is in waltz time (3/4), it's a good movie. Otherwise, it isn't.

Unfortunately, this objective standard turned out to be stupid.


If you have seen these movies, please help me to rate them.

(Note: I may have misunderstood the term "2006 Summer Blockbuster." In case it's not obvious, Peter Lorre counts as a snake.)
