One of my favorite things about the Summer…is movies. Well to be honest, one of my favorite things just in general is movies. But studios pull out all the stops for the Summer Blockbusters and I look forward to it every year. The Action, the Thriller, the Suspense and Drama. Movies for me have always been a great escape. An hour and a half or so to get lost in the concerns, problems, and hijinks of the leading lady or man and be transported somewhere else. I also enjoy a good sequel. It’s like running into an old friend in the city and deciding to grab coffee so you can see what they’ve been up to. Having them share the highs and lows of life since the last time you saw them.
Movies are an excellent way to retreat from the day to day and get lost in the music, scenery, and story. They make us laugh and cry, and if they are really good they can make us think. Connect to our fellow man or woman in a way we didn’t know possible. Now don’t get me wrong, most people are not going to the movies to be reminded of the faults and worries of the world. But sometimes it’s nice to watch something that makes you reconsider or just consider some things around you. To see others in a new way or be reminded of what makes all of us the same instead of different.
These are a few movies I’m really looking forward to seeing. Are there any you can’t wait to see this summer??
