My Must Watch Summer Movies for 2014

without comments

Summer movie season will soon be upon us and one must make plans what to watch now, when to watch later, and what not to watch all. So I got hold of Entertainment Weekly’s Summer Move Preview issue:


105 films have been listed and I’ve chosen to watch only four on their release.

1. Jupiter Ascending A science fiction film directed by the Wachowskis. What else do you need to know?

2. A Most Wanted Man The late Philip Seymour Hoffman in a movie based on a John le Carre novel and directed by Anton Corbijn, who gave us the lush, smoldering thriller The American.

3. Frank’s Miller Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Frank Miller is back to co-direct, bringing to life the next volume of his noirish Sin City series of graphic novels.

4. Lucy Scarlett Johansson and Luc Besson in one film. Obviously, I don’t need to say more.

These are the only movies I will spend my hard-earned money, schlep down to my local movie theatre, buy overpriced, bland-tasting snacks, sit in the dark and enjoy the show. I have ignored such obvious blockbusters like Godzilla, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. They just don’t interest me except as RedBox rentals.
