August movies, here I come

Going to the movies is a summer pastime for many folks. Comedies, action-adventure flicks, snacks. They’re all good. And I don’t know about you guys, but I certainly enjoy the dark and the air conditioning at the movies after all the bright, hot, humid days. It’s definitely a bonus.

Captain America The Winter SoldierIs it just me, but are all the good movies coming out in August this year? I just haven’t been all that excited about most of the movies that have come out so far this year.

I’ve seen tons of trailers, but very few movies have interested me enough to go see them in the theater. Except for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which was awesome.

But August? It’s loaded with movies that I want to see — Guardians of the Galaxy (playing now); The Expendables 3 (releases Aug. 15); and, yes, even Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (releases Aug. 8).

So what appeals to me about these three movies in particular? They just look like fun. Guardians of the Galaxy looks like a zany superhero movie set in space. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looks like a zany superhero movie with teenage mutant ninja turtles. And The Expendables 3 stars every action hero who hasn’t already been in the first two Expendables movies.

The ExpendablesPlus, action movies are my favorite, and all three of these should have plenty of action, especially The Expendables 3. If you’ve seen the first Expendables movie, you know that the franchise features car chases, fights, and explosions galore.

Plus, it’s still summer, and I want to be entertained before we all buckle back down for fall.

What about you guys? What movies are you looking forward to? What’s the best movie you’ve seen so far this year?

    Hi Jennifer,

    I love fun action movies in the summer! Captain America was particularly satisfying. I’ve heard good things about Guardians of the Galaxy. Now I’m going to have to see the other two as well :) I also liked Expenables 2 for the way they joked about their own fame (Chuck Norris making Chuck Norris jokes. Lol). Thanks for the TMNT heads up!

    Jennifer, in my last newsletter, I asked people to tell me a favorite movie they’ve seen recently, and Captain America was one of the ones mentioned often. I’ll have to see it on DVD. We saw the Guardians on Saturday, and it kind of reminded me of the first Star War movies, though I liked the Star Wars better. This was enjoyable, though. Great ending! Groot and the Raccoon were my favorite characters. lol

  3. I don’t do theaters, and I haven’t even hooked my DVD player up since we moved last year. I wait until they come out on TV – which means I am so behind the pack on everything new. I only just saw RED last year (awesome, btw). I’ll try to keep an eye out for Expendables, since I haven’t caught that one yet either. I’m really looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy. Hooked by the gun-toting raccoon in the commercials. Gotta love kick-ass raccoons. LOL

  4. Happy August, Jennifer! I hadn’t realized until today, actually, that ALL those guys were in The Expendables 3. My hubby and I will definitely go see it. This weekend we’re planning on Guardians of the Galaxy. And I think If I Stay comes out this month. I really want to see that! Loved the book.
