Wonder Woman// My absolute favorite summer move this year! I have to admit, I'm a WW snob. I grew up watching the television series in the 70's and 80's and Linda Carter will always be my favorite. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the acting of Gal Gadot. I'm also not a comic fan, so I was a little skeptical about seeing it and although the ending got a little far fetched for me, I loved how it lead you into the upcoming Justice League movie.
The Mummy// As I've said in a previous post, do not waste your time with this one. Even Alise said about three quarters into the movie, "Mama, this is so stupid!" We blamed it on daddy because it was his pick.
Rough Night// I saw this movie with my girlfriends and it was funny, but not overly hilarious. Most of the funny parts were in the previews. I think I was expecting it to be more along the lines of Bad Moms. I know that sounds absolutely horrible, but as this stage of my life, that's just the movie I identified with more.
Transformers// Wayne and Alise actually saw this one. I am not a Transformers fan. They didn't care for it too much.
Despicable Me 3// Everyone is shocked when I tell them that I didn't care for this one. I know right?? I mean, the movie soundtrack is awesome, but I enjoyed the first and second movies better. Still, I say that it's a summer must-see.
Snatched// I took Stephanie and Alise to see this before Stephanie left to go over seas. We loved it. Goldie Hawn is still so funny!
Book of Henry// Alise had been wanting to see this movie ever since we saw the previews, but it was rated PG-13, and although I have "ventured out" a little in monitoring what she watches, I just wasn't sure this was the movie for her. When she wasn't able to go to basketball camp with her teammates, I decided to cheer her up and she and I had a mama/daughter date night. I must say that I thought this was one of the cleanest PG-13 movies I've seen in a while! It was a sad movie, though, with a good ending.
Atomic Blonde// Wayne loves Charlize Theron, so this was a no brainer that we would see this. Think a female version of Jason Bourne. Loved the twist at the end, too. AND! Another killer soundtrack!
Spiderman// Definitely not my favorite Spiderman movie. I know the audience was probably intended for the younger crowd, but the role of Peter was just too quirky to me. I guess I like a more "serious" Spiderman. What can I say?
Still On The List// Of all the summer movie hits, we STILL have not seen Dunkirk. I'm thinking of taking Alise with me to see The Glass Castle. I read the book a few years ago for book club and it was good and I'm thinking she might like it.
What movies have you seen this summer?
