It’s officially Summer! This means it’s time for barbecues, beaches, and big blockbusters in the theaters! This summer is full of some new and amazing films that I can’t wait to see.
Recently released, Star Trek is already my favorite for the summer. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and the always wonderful Leonard Nimoy make this film a must see. The story is has been touted as a re-imagining of The Original Series, but after seeing the film I think that is untrue. I believe it adds to the series as a whole. We do see a sleek retooling of the Scant, the short dress worn by females and occasionally males in the Original Series. It’s sleek and sexy withan air of authority. Kirk barely wears a uniform in the film, but that’s alright. We see plenty of uniform action in both Starfleet Academy and deep space scenes.
Another Blockbuster has been Wolverine. Wolverine stars Hugh Jackman reprising his role as the title character. This film makes the always handsome and well kept Jackman and turns him into the rough, tough, big belt buckle wearing dude we all know and love. This film has done really well in the theaters and that’s not surprising since we get to see characters like Gambit, Sabretooth, and another big buckler John Wraith, played by Will I Am from the Black Eyed Peas.
Transformers : Revenge of the Fallen came out June 24th, and I could not be more excited! This weekend I will finally see it! Transformers was one of my favorite films of 2007 and in the theater I nearly hovered out of the seat with excitement. Starring Shia LeBeouf and Megan Fox, this sequel was projected to knock the socks off of previous theater records and it definitely did that. The trailer for this film looks amazing and when I finally see it you know I’ll be hovering on the edge of my seat and rooting for my favorite character, Optimus Prime. Megan Fox is definitely foxier in this film. She’s still rocking the tight jeans and shirts, but this time we see her doing more of the mechanical work she mostly spoke of in the last film. The only thing better than Megan Fox, is Megan Fox covered in dirt and oil.
Herry Potter enters theaters on July 15th. It’s expected to outdo the other HP films and I look forward to the older Harry, Ron, and Hermione and the beginnings of future romances. In this film we see Dumbledore attempting to prepare Harry for what he knows is to come with the reemergance of Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters. If you haven’t read the book, I would suggest you do. It is not possible to capture the entire essence of the Harry Potter world without reading the books. The films are good, but the books are what captured the hearts and minds of the world.
