Who's ready to watch some movies this summer??

                I have a secret to tell you all…..I work for one of the largest movie theatre chains in the U.S, and I don’t watch movies.  Customers ask me all the time “Oh, how was (insert movie title here)?”  And sometimes I can come up with a vague answer based on what I’ve heard from other customers and employees, but a lot of times they just get a blank stare.  This summer I am determined to eliminate the blank stare and see some of the awesome movies coming out this summer!  This year is shaping up to be one of THE biggest years for the movie industry ever. I recently had the opportunity to watch several advanced trailers for the upcoming movies of this year and I’m pretty excited to see some of these movies.    So without further ado, I am going to give you my top 10 (in order of release date) must see movies for this Summer:

( on the title to go to a synopsis of the movie)

                I’ll admit this looks totally cheesy, but who doesn’t enjoy a cheesy PG-13 suspense movie?? This is definitely not going to be the sleeper hit of the world, but hey I don’t pay for movies anyways ;)

                I had ZERO interest in this movie based off of the poster. I love Blake Lively, but I just wasn’t feeling this one.  Then I had the opportunity to see an extended trailer.  I think this movie is going to be great.  It’s definitely a “chick flick” so grab your girls and some tissues and go see this! No, seriously, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

                Captain America and Iron Man. Do I *really* need to say more?? I think right now this whole series is untouchable.  Every movie just gets better and better and I don’t think this is going to be an exception. The cast is incredible and this is a movie everyone can enjoy. Because ladies, even if we don’t care about the action….Captain American and Iron Man.

                Do I really need to even explain this one??  After seeing an extended trailer I have no doubt this will be just as great as the first, if not better.  So go see it, pitches!

                This was one of the first scary movies I saw as a kid, and I’m really interested to see what they do with a remake.  I was obsessed with the little blonde girl and wanted to be her. I mean she got to be inside a tv, that’s super cool stuff to a kid.  It may end up being a total bomb, but I’ll see it anyways!

                So now that I know this isn’t a movie about Grand Theft Auto, I’m kind of excited about it.  National disaster movies always end up being really great, or really horrible and I’m hoping this one is really great.

                I watched this show religiously, so I have to go see the movie!  I absolutely love Ari, and I can’t wait to see him on the big screen.  I really hope they don’t screw this up, because I have high hopes.  And if you’ve never seen the series, go watch it. Right now.  You won’t regret it!

3. Spy
                I adore Melissa McCarthy but after seeing two extended scenes from this, I think Jason Statham is going to steal the spotlight.  I’m not sure I’ve ever seen him in a comedy, and he had me dying laughing.  And did I mention he’s not bad to look at either??

2. Max
                I really super duper hope this is the sleeper hit on the summer.  I had not heard of this movie until it played in one of the trailer reel’s we watched, and the trailer almost made me cry. This movie looks amazing, and you should really go check out the trailer!

1.  Ted
                I really enjoyed the first one, and while the first few trailer were very “meh” I still have high hopes for Ted. And Mark Wahlberg is hot.

                So it turns out my top 10 list only goes through June! That’s how many amazing movies are coming out this summer!  Which movie are you most excited to see this summer??  Leave a comment below and one lucky winner will receive a prize from me!
