Movies You Don’t Want to Miss Out On
Theaters have been jam-packed this summer with the release of blockbuster after blockbuster. You’ve most likely heard the buzz circulating about these movies, and have been curious to see what all the talk is about. The rush to make it into debut screenings of these movies may be over, but it is not too late to join in on the movie-talk. So, if you and your friends are looking for something to do this weekend, consider these box-office winners:
- The Twilight Saga: Eclipse: Don’t miss out on the third film of the Twilight Saga. Despite the fairly negative reviews, Eclipse still claims the #1 spot in the box office, meaning that “Twi-hards”,“Team Jacob” and “Team Edward” are remaining faithful to the series with the hope that the film is not as bad as the reviewers claim.
- The Last Airbender: Based on the Nickelodean hit series “Avatar,” The Last Airbender is the first of a projected trilogy. The film succeeded in assuming the #2 spot in the box office, just after Eclipse, and enchants the audience with an abundance of dazzling visual effects. This film is for those who loved and could not get enough of the animated series.
- Toy Story 3: If you grew up watching Toy Story and Toy Story 2, then Toy Story 3 is a must. This film explores a topic that many refuse to consider: what happens to your childhood memories and artifacts when you can no longer live in your childhood? What happens when you must leave it all behind? This movie provides a touching remembrance of the loving relationship between Andy and his toys—a final chapter that Toy Story lovers would hate to miss!
- Grown Ups: “Boys will be boys… some longer than others.” Five friends reunite after 30 years for a Fourth of July weekend, all having moved on with their lives. The five, now adults, along with their families, gather at a lake house only to discover that nothing has really changed. This movie is hilarious and a great “friends forever” film that you and your pals can all enjoy.
- Knight and Day: The always stunning Tom Cruise and the forever beautiful Cameron Diaz join forces in this comedy about a normal woman and a seemingly normal man, who in reality is a secret agent. Their two lives become tangled as they embark on an entertaining, action-packed mission to stay alive.
- Karate Kid Jackie Chan is the new “Mr. Miyagi” (named Mr. Han in this version) and Jaden Smith is the new “Karate Kid” in this remake of the 1984 film, The Karate Kid. Chan and Smith succeed in giving a stellar performance, and provide the audience with an inspirational and touching story about passion and perseverance. Produced by Will and Jada Pickett Smith, this is a film for children and adults alike.
