Bring out the Popcorns!

By Sharanya

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!”

  1. @renu
    i am sure that Bridesmaids is a better movie than 1,2,4,5,6 and it is a ‘version of hangover for girls’
    ‘Midnight in Paris’ is a great movie,
    ‘submarine’ seems to be a great movie.
    list ll the great movies remove junks.

    out of all these kunfupanda will be the best. i am goin to watch it on the releasing day 😉

    PS. it is not PotC4, it is PoC 4

    1. @Slacker: Sharanya’s list was mostly sequels to look to for, as she mentioned! Although, from your list, I am waiting for submarine – looks very interesting. Trees of life is also interesting – hope thats good!

      Enjoy your kung fu panda! 🙂

  2. @Slacker 9 – As Renu has already mentioned, my post is about sequels (mentioned in the very first line) .. plus most of movies are for anyone (not a particular crowd)… I hadnt watched Bridesmaid and wasnt interested in watching it when I saw the trailer.. it is one of those movies I would go and check out if some one actually recommends it to me …and it is PotC as it is called Pirates of ‘the’ Caribbean !! google both PoC and PotC to see which yields the right ans!

    P.S. These are the movies I AM excited about and am pretty sure this list differs for everyone based on their movie taste!! No one is being forced to watch the movies from the list .. So please refrain from using words such as ‘junk’.

  3. @Renu – hadnt watched the X-men series .. so only didnt include it here ! Also, i have decided not to go based on trailers coz trailer seem to mislead me a lot !

  4. @renu the comment was for you, i just wanted you to list few more movies and add ur suggestion. yes i agree that this list is not intended for a ‘particular group’,
    i just suggested a few more.. that is it,
    even ‘thor’ is a watchable movie..
    @sharanya a die hard PoC fan always refers it as PoC, and dont like any other names.
    then i suggest bridesmaids
    we can surely expect that hangII wont be good, and i thought ladies prefer bridesmaids over hangoverII. sorry

    ps: the poc4 is waste, but watchable, but i am sure that kunfu-panda wil b goooooooooood
