I love movies. I mean I really, really love movies. I spent my childhood watching offbeat comedies with my siblings, all the John Wayne classics with my dad, Masterpiece Theater productions and every Doris Day movie ever with my mom. Movies, I’m all about that business. Summer movies especially. There’s nothing like sitting inside a freezing air-conditioned movie theater with good friends, all hopped up on sugary candy and buttery over-salted popcorn sipping a cold bubbly drink while being transported by the latest Summer blockbuster. I’m not the only one with a lifetime of those blissful summer memories, am I?
I want my kids to have their own Summer movie memories so I’m currently compiling a huge list of movies for my children to see before I leave the nest (*SOB*). It’s unbelievable to me sometimes the stuff they haven’t seen (shut up, I know they’re still little). I’ve got an arsenal of amazing movies up my sleeve for them, and while this list isn’t for kids, it is for you. (Unless you’re a kid, in which case ask your parents before you go getting me in trouble.) Now that it’s almost Summer I want to share my 5 top summer movies to see. This list is far from comprehensive. Think of this as a jumping off point in your cinematic Summer education.
5 Top Summer Movies to See (ASAP)
1. Top Gun
3. Stand By Me
4. The Sandlot
5. The Endless Summer
(I couldn’t stop, so here are a bonus 5 movies!)
8. Field of Dreams
9. What About Bob
10. Dirty Dancing
(Okay, okay, just 3 more. And then I’m done. Pinky promise!)
11. Tommy Boy
12. Point Break
13. The Graduate
Now that I’ve got you all excited for movie season, I have a giveaway for you! A movie giveaway! Because movies! Are! Awesome!
Have you seen the lineup for the Summer 2013 movie season? You guys! I’ll be in the theater all summer if you need me. The Great Gatsby comes out in two days, then the new Star Trek (it looks so good!), Man of Steel (Henry Cavill, swoon), Monsters University, Despicable Me 2 … I could go on an on. So many good movies coming out this season.
