Every summer it is same old drama but with new storylines, i.e. summer comes, and thus sequels of movies come.. Since 2007 summer, I have tried to make up a list of movies I have to watch and try my best to follow the list. Last year, I posted a list of movies and my personal critic on each (well most of them)… Trying to do the same this year. Hope you get to watch all these movies and have a perfect summer
1. Fast Five (*****) The second best (the first one being the best for me) in this series. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker (love his crooked smile), Sung Kang (the cute Korean mentor from Tokyo drift) and the Rock! There is the muscle and beauty right there and add to the mix – fast cars, good one-liners, and crazy action and you have the perfect movie to watch. Eventhough there are some unrealistic scenes, it is still totally worth a watch!
2.Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (5/20) – fourth in the series ! Johhny Depp as the cool pirate with his kohl-lined eyes.. will miss Keira Knightley but then Penelope is hot too!
Update on PotC 4 (***) – good one and a definite watch for the series fans .. some good one liners and comic timings ( a trade mark of Captn Jack Sparrow) – cud hav bn a lil shorter .. Johnny Depp rocks again! P.S. – wait until after the end credits!
3. Kung-fu Panda 2 (5/26) – “I’m not a big fat panda. I’m THE big fat panda.” love the fat yet cute panda with no skills in kung-fu and lots of luck!
4. The Hangover II – (5/26) – havn’t watched the first one yet but may b will catch up both of them .. am thinking perfecr for laughs with a group of buddies!
5. Cars 2 – (6/24) – Ka-chow! McQueen and Mater are back..the first part was the right amount of drama, romance and action … of course the animation was grt too!
6. Transformers: Dark of the Moon (7/1) – cars turning into machines; cool graphics – loved the first 2 parts (alas, not everyone seems to share these sentiments) and have watched it numerous times and never gotten bored.. so excitedly looking forward to this part! will not really miss Megan Fox but not really keen on the new Rosie Huntington-Whitely either.
7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (7/15) – Def need to watch this one! 7 book and 6.5 movies later, this is going to be the perfect final ending to Potter mania! HP7.1 was very good with dialogues from the book and containing all the important scenes…Hoping HP7.2 is even better!
Couple of other movies (not a sequel) to check out –
- Green Lantern (6/17)
- Captain America: The First Avenger (7/22)
I might have missed out some movies which might you might think is a good watch. Feel free to let me know! A closing thought on this “A perfect summer is when there is a sequel releasing every fri and you watching it!”
