Yesterday was the first official day of summer y’all.
Summer should bring to mind many things:
Hot girls barely wearing clothes
What was I talking about again? I got distracted..
Summer brewski’s with your broski’s
And School’s Out For Summer (Via Alice Cooper)
But perhaps one of the best things about summer are the super sexy, explosion filled, and entertaining Summer Blockbusters.
Now I’m gunna be honest y’all, outside of the summer months these movies really aren’t my thing. Ask me to watch a Michael Bay movie in the Fall and I’ll tell you that I’d rather pay a homeless person to piss in my eyes. Ask me to watch Transformers 3 in July, and sure, I’ll go cheer on Even Stevens as he takes on evil robot monsters from space.
Summer is not the time to look for ‘deep’ meanings in movies. It’s summer y’all. Chillax and ride those chillwaves. Save the intelligent stuff for the fall when we’ve got our fake glasses and pea-coats on (gotta look good y’all.)
Summer is the time for going to the movies with friends and enjoying the simple magic of CGI, Aliens, Superheroes, Jack Sparrow, and J.K. Freaking Rowling (#TeamDumbledore).
This summer offers up some pretty good “Summer Blockbusters”.
In the Superhero category we have:
X-Men First Class
Captain America: The First Avenger
In the Animation Category we have:
Kung Fu Panda 3
And the Everything Else Category:
Cowboys Vs. Aliens
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt. 2
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Quite an impressive list. Almost overwhelming. I don’t have the time or money to see all of these y’all, and you probably don’t either. So choose wisely. I can recommend Super 8, X-men, and Thor. All very solid movies. Perhaps a review to come of Super 8 later.
Feel excited/sad/scared about the final Harry Potter. Part of my childhood dying y’all.
So stop being a hipster for a little. Forget about good acting, intricate plots, and crazy lesbian ballet dancers. It’s the summer. Turn off your brain a little and enjoy some good ol’ Good Vs. Evil, ass kicking, and CGI filled cinema fun.
Quick Note- That being said, please avoid The Zookeeper. If you actually pay to see his movies, you’re letting Kevin James win. And therefore the terrorists win. Do you really want that?
