Summer movies: What’s your favorite?

Just got an email announcing Family Circle and Netflix’s list of All-Time Summer Film Favorites. Here they are:
1. “Raiders of the Lost Ark”
2. “Grease”
3. “Jaws”
4. “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”
5. “Dirty Dancing”
6. “Back to the Future”
7. “Toy Story”
8. “Jurassic Park”
9. “Iron Man”
What, no “Spider-Man”? Or “Spider-Man 2,” for that matter? Remember the summer when everyone was watching — and talking about “The Sixth Sense”? And why is “Iron Man” on this list but not “The Dark Knight”? I love the idea of “summer movies”; it’s the only season to have its own genre (nobody ever talks about spring, fall or winter movies) of popcorn-flavored entertainment. What’s your favorite?
