Recently in the theaters I've seen:
Disturbia - Better than I had anticipated, but a straight rip off of Rear Window
Grindhouse - Planet Terror pwnd, Death Proof was meh with a few great moments
Spiderman 3 - Total and absolute crap, an abortion on film
Pirates 3 - Barely above crap
Knocked Up - Best movie of the summer
Live Free or Die Hard - Decent, didn't "feel" like a Die Hard movie though
Transformers - The more I think about this movie the more I dislike it
I really liked Grindhouse but wasn't a big fan of Planet Terror. I thought it was a decent zombie movie. Death Proof, however, was f**king great, IMO. Kurt Russell was terrific in it and the car chases were fantastic. The only thing I didn't like was the long scenes with all the dialogue between the women. The first group of women weren't too bad but the second group of women were annoying. I thought Tarantino did a great job as usual.
I was extremely disappointed in Spider-Man 3. Definitely the weakest of the 3, IMO. Sam Raimi could have done a much better job with Venom.
I liked Pirates and didn't think it was crap like Spider-Man 3 but again it was the weakest of the trilogy.
I really enjoyed Disturbia even though like you said it was based on Rear Window.
I loved Live Free or Die Hard though. Definitely the best of the sequels, IMO. The action was great, the story was decent, Bruce Willis was terrific once again.
I still need to see Knocked Up and Transformers. I'll probably rent both of DVD later since I have little interest in seeing either of them at the show.
There are still quite a few movies I want to see this year.
