Last week was all about summer vacation movies which I cleverly avoided because I needed two of those movies into this list! Turns out I know how to plan ahead, who knew!? Anyway, here are three amusement park related recommendations, and even though two of them are really obvious, I feel like I cheated a little with the third one – but I don’t really care!
On Sunday, one of the most loved actors Tom Hanks celebrated his 61st birthday and I thought I’d include a Tom Hanks classic in this week’s list. Hanks, who provided me with so many of my childhood favourites, has had a very long career and though I haven’t seen most of his latest movies, I have only fond memories of most of his 90’s films. And Big is no different. Our main character wakes up after a visit to an amusement park as a new man and everything builds from there. Big has heart, it has soul, and it has a great message!
I bet this pick will be all over this week’s post because it’s pretty much the first movie that comes to mind when one thinks of amusement parks. It’s a really good summer-esque movie and it features my favourite performance by Kristen Stewart – which is also the only performance by her I’ve enjoyed. It is quirky, it is different and it’s quite memorable even though I saw this ages ago!
Water park is an amusement park, right? Let’s say it’s the same thing because I really want to recommend this Sam Rockwell movie! It was also the movie I thought about last week, and I saw it mentioned as well but I was holding myself back, because it would have been a shame not to mention it this time around. I love this movie! I just watched it again (today) because I got that feeling of pure joy revisiting the trailer for it. It’s the perfect movie for the summer, and man, Sam Rockwell needs to be cast in every indie comedy!
