I just finished reading The Great Gatsby, for the the first time! I know, I know why didn’t I read it in High School? Well, it was never assigned and I wasn’t really big on reading the classics for fun back then. So that brings us to now.
I’m a big believer in reading the books before you see the movies. (Ex: Harry Potter, Twilight saga, The Hunger Games series, Perks of Being a Wallflower etc.) That’s why I decided to read up on Gatsby because who can pass on an opportunity to see Leo on the Big Screen 😉 But speaking of the big screen, it’s almost summer time (Thank God) and that means Summer Blockbusters! Here’s my Top 10!
Iron Man 3 came out yesterday and it’s already blown up the box offices overseas so I practically jumpin’ out of my skin to see it.
Fast and Furious 6 Now I know someone should have cut them off after #2 because #3 was awful, and I don’t even remember #4 but after #5 I’m really excited to #6. What can say? I like fast cars, hott guys and things blowing up. & a ton of people must like the same things otherwise we wouldn’t be on number 6.
Honestly, I didn’t love the first Hangover. It was insanely funny yes. But I think by time I saw it, it was hyped up wayyy too much. No bueno. The second one, was again funny, but it just seemed like they were trying too hard. So as the trilogy comes to end, I’m still really excited to see the last installment because I’m a college girl, and I’ve lived “the hangover” at least once or twice.
What’s not to be excited about when it comes to Now You See Me? There’s magic, theft, Vegas, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman and the guy from The Social Network doing something besides The Social Network (and he kind of looks like a badass doing it).
The Purge looks scary. But it in realistic way. I was never a fan for the gory, chopped up bodies, sort-of-thing. It seems cheap and its not scary just disgusting. I like to be scared. I
want to be scared. So bring on the happy families that get to do whatever they want one night of the year. We all have that one person we’d get “even” with in the worst way possible, if it was legal. Don’t we?
If you’re not obsessed with Emma Watson shame on you! I’m so freaking proud of her for not just being Hermione Granger (although Hermione would’ve never dropped out of Brown.) The Bling Ring just seems so out of character for her, so I’m excited to see her really act and be a party girl/hollywood train wreck. Bonus! The girl from the first season of AHS is in this.
I will jump at any opportunity I get to be a kid again and Monsters University is my chance this summer. It will be much needed after graduating college and having to be a real adult. Now I just have to find a kid to take with me so I don’t look like a complete creep.Real Life Question: Why does Hugh Jackman look better as The Wolverine then he does in real life? Whatever the reason, as I birthday present to myself, I will watch him kick ass in his wolf-like badass ways. Plus this can hold me over until the new EPIC X-Men movie where practically EVERYONE (Halle, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Magneto, Professor X, Jennifer Lawrence etc) is back. Please tell me you’re as excited as I am?
Denzel, Denzel, Denzel.<3 Do I need to say more? Oh! Mark Wahlberg! That is all.And last but not least The Great Gatsby. I’m a sucker for Leo DiCaprio. Always have been, always will be. The 20s seemed epic and it’s not just your typical love story. I’m a girl who loves her happy endings but stories that don’t end the way you think they will are my fav. SPOILER: Seriously, when Daisy “accidentally” killed her husbands mistress while in the car with her lover and then the mistress’ husband killed Gatsby I was
So that’s my list. I’m a baby move buff if you haven’t picked up on that yet. I’m a firm believe that if you can’t get to a beach there’s no better way to escape the summer heat then hitting up a movie theater.
What movies are you dying to see this summer?
