What’s The Greatest Movie Summer Ever?
We’re gonna post 6 of the greatest movie summers - reblog your favourite!
Star Trek: Practically the underdog in the sci-fi franchise stakes that summer (going up against Transformers 2 and Terminator Salvation), JJ Abrams’ fresh, character-driven take on Trek satisfied fans and newbies alike, leaving cinema-goers ravenous for more.
Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince: The franchise is more frequently associated with the winter months, but Harry Potter is still a monster success in the summer. Ever-dependable, the series continued the dark march towards the finale with considerable style in this (almost) penultimate entry.
The Hangover: With all the hype surrounding this bromantic mega-hit (and the sequel which is currently doing the rounds), it’s easy to forget why it was so popular. Which is basically because the ‘What the hell happened?’ mystery augments a movie that is, frankly, mercilessly funny.
Up: You might be weeping a mere five minutes into this charming Pixar animation, but keep your chin up, as you’re watching one of the most artful adventures of recent years. Unashamedly heartfelt, and all the better for it.
Public Enemies: Michael Mann’s Depression-era Heat pits Johnny Depp’s rakish John Dillinger against Christian Bale’s unswerving lawman. The period details are precise, the gunfights authentically loud, but it’s the characters that’ll get you by the throat here.
