Interesting when looking back. I think I'd give either 1991 or 1993 the nod for my favorite summer. Summer 2005 gets a bad rap, I think it was a pretty good summer season. 1997 was really a bad period for Hollywood "event films" ... no wonder there was an opening for Titanic to move in, I think at that point a lot of people were fed up with what Hollywood had churned out that summer, especailly women.
