What’s The Greatest Movie Summer Ever?
We’re gonna post 6 of the greatest movie summers - reblog your favourite!
Terminator 2: Judgment Day: James Cameron arguably started his habit of making groundbreaking event pictures with this sci-fi sequel. To this day, the CGI continues to impress, as does the beating heart beneath the hyperalloy combat chassis.
Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves: For the last 30 or so years, the ‘swashbuckler’ seems to be a difficult subgenre to get right, but Prince Of Thieves nails it, with action and scale to spare, and one of Alan Rickman’s many great villains, the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Thelma & Louise: This ladies-on-the-lam movie may not immediately feel like a Ridley Scott flick, but the director’s fingerprint is visible in the striking vistas, large-scale action and gutsy characterisation.
Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey: There was existential searching aplenty in this most excellent of sequels. The time-screwing plot, in which the eponymous slackers try to outdo Death, is a head-scratcher, but it’s just one facet of the movie’s goofy charm.
Point Break: In what was an annus mirabilis for Keanu Reeves-based bromances, Kathryn Bigelow’s tale of wave-riding bank robbers took action-buddy antics to a whole new level of awesome. One hell of an adrenaline rush.
