What is summer for? I hate beaches, I hate getting tanned. To me, summer is about eating all the ice cream and barbecue that you can, and feeling so sluggish that you only have the energy to nap and watch movies. Well, that’s what I do all year round, but summer is when you’re allowed to, assuming you don’t have school like me. While summer has technically already started, Vancouver’s been finally hit with its first heat wave. Kids are getting out of school, and summer blockbusters are coming out in droves to make money off disgruntled parents trying to keep their kids entertained. And even though I’m still stuck in uni, you can be sure the kid in me needs to be entertained this summer too. Here is my list of top ten films I am most excited to see this summer.
NOTE: I have a thing for uncensored trailers, namely Red Band Trailers, in this case. They may contain nudity, profanity, blah blah blah. Viewer discretion is advised.
10. The To Do List
Starring Aubrey Plaza as Brandy Clark, this is a romantic comedy set in 1993 about a high school senior set on losing her virginity and gaining more sexual experience before she leaves for college. So sexually awkward that I can’t wait to see it, because awkward is
Comes out July 26, 2013.
9. The Hangover Part III
Not that I actually find the films particularly funny, but Ken Jeong as Leslie Chow is the only reason why I will watch the trilogy finale. This movie also stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, and Zach Galifianakis. In this installment, the “Wolfpack”, namely Phil, Stu, Doug, are trying to help Alan after he is off his ADHD medication and starts going out of control. Sounds like every other Hangover film to me, but heck I’ll try it.
Released May 23, 2013. In theatres now.
