10 films i’m looking forward to this summer
posted by soe 1:34 am

Today was my final Tuesday volleyball game for a while, which means I’m likely able to take advantage of $5 movie night again. This turned my thoughts to what might be playing this summer that I’d like to see:

  1. Spiderman: Far From Home (I didn’t love Avengers: End Game, but I do love this iteration of Peter Parker.)
  2. Rocketman (obviously the soundtrack will be great)
  3. Late Night (Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson? Yes, please!)
  4. Men in Black International (aka Asgardians in Suits)
  5. Yesterday (What if you were suddenly the only person who knew The Beatles’ repertoire?)
  6. The Farewell (I’ve loved Awkwafina in everything I’ve seen her in thus far, including that phone/pedicure commercial currently on tv, and will definitely want to see this — with a box of tissues.)
  7. Blinded by the Light (Rudi and I just saw a trailer for this film — about a 1980s British Indian teen boy who falls in love with the music of The Boss — last week, and it looks awesome!)
  8. Booksmart (Because I probably should have had a couple wild adventures back in the day…)
  9. Shaft (I have never seen any of the previous iterations, but this could be fun.)
  10. The Spy Behind Home Plate (I missed The Catcher Is Also a Spy last year, so I might do a double-header of this documentary with that biopic.)

Between these and the free outdoor film screenings that started up tonight, I should catch up on a ton of movies this summer. How about you? What would you like to catch at the theater this summer?
