What a coincidence that not only can I pick movies suitable for a summer vacation but that I myself am currently on my summer vacation? It feels like it’s meant to be, and that this list should be epic because of this situation. It’s not epic but it’s pretty good! Also, as you’ve noticed, I’ve looked passed the idea of picking movies that feature people on their summer vacation, and set my sights on adventures and thrilling movies that I love to enjoy during my summer vacation!
There’s something about summer vacation that sort of screams for big adventures and there’s nothing bigger in terms of an adventure than a journey to space. We follow our main character Captain Kirk, portrayed by my favourite Chris, Chris Pine, as he begins his journey towards that important title. It’s fun, it’s funny, and even though so many of you will probably don’t approve, I like it more than I like Star Wars universe (based on movies). There, I said it, roll your eyes, puff out some air, and be okay with it. Star Trek has since then gotten two follow up movies but none of them have really captured the feel of the first one, yet, they are all great adventure movies and worth one’s time.
PS: I think I’ve seen this movie more than 10 times.
A hit and miss depending on who you talk to but for me, The Island was great. I liked the element of sci-fi in the movie but I also enjoyed the performances by Ewan McGregor – he played two people! The film is thrilling and enjoyable, it doesn’t try to over complicate the science fiction, and although there are clones involved, the majority of the movie focuses on the human aspect. I haven’t seen the movie in a while but I used to watch it a lot and summer would be the best time to revisit it.
The newest movie for this week’s post is last summer’s release Nerve with Emma Roberts and Dave Franco. Now, I’m not a fan of Roberts what so ever, I find her very one dimensional but I did like her in this, and I also liked the younger Franco brother (honestly, I like both Francos a lot). Nerve is a movie with a fast running plot that takes place during a single night. There is also a scene that made me anxious in the best way possible and I was surprised how much I was rooting for the main characters. It also delivers a few laughs as well and it’s just a fun movie to enjoy during a rainy summer day or a late night movie night!
