I love summer movies. Especially when I go with my mama. She always tells the box office clerk that she wants a ticket for her favorite daughter. She also tells them that I'm 7.

There are a lot of great movies coming out this summer, so I thought I'd give you a heads-up about a few of them.

'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' comes out in August, and I can't wait. The trailer looks really scary. When I was growing up I was fascinated by apes. Personally, I think a planet of apes would be great, but can you imagine the price of bananas?

I'm also excited for 'Super 8.' People are saying it's like a modern day 'E.T.' I'm glad. 'E.T.' hasn't been the same since Mary Hart left.
