2018 Summer Movies

It’s that time of year, dear reader! In just a month, Hollywood is going to hit us with summer movies. These are the ones they anticipate will break all box office records, excluding Black Panther, because I’m seriously not sure how anything can even come close to its impressive milestones. When you’re in Harry Potter and Star Wars territory, you know you’ve done something right.

Well done, Disney. This should help you pay for the hefty salaries from the ninety-seven people on the cast roster list for the new Avengers.

Before you scroll through the amazing list of summer movies I’m dying to see, just remember that I’m the girl who likes a love story, a dance flick, anything animated, and superheroes. If you are looking for something a little more cerebral than Chris Pratt saving dinosaurs or Chris Pratt saving the universe, may I suggest you listen to my summer movie podcast with my good friend Todd.

Todd’s tastes are a little different than mine, and although I love John Krasinski with my whole heart and I think his wife Emily Blunt is as adorable as they come, I will not sit in a silent darkened room waiting for things to jump out at me. You’re my boy, Jim Halpert, but I just can’t.

Okay, maybe I can just to see that manly beard on the big screen. But it’s a scary movie and I read ninety-percent of it is completely SILENT. How am I supposed to hide my face for the scary parts when I don’t have verbal context clues that they are coming? In short, SHOULD I GO TO THIS MOVIE?

It’s John. It’s Jim. What would Pam Beasley do?

Decisions are the worst.

But sometimes they are pretty easy. Just take a look at the 2018 summer movies that have LINCEE RAY written all over them!

The Avengers: Infinity War

The gang’s all here! Seriously. Every single member of the gang is literally here. All my boys named Chris, all my boys from Wakanda, sweet Spidey, RDJ, and the big green guy are my favs. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, but Dr. Strange just doesn’t do it for me. I prefer my Cumberbatch with a trench coat and shaggy hair.

Solo

His name is Alden Ehrenreich and things are going to go really well for him in 2018 or he will only work on independent films from here on out. I love this casting and fully support Han. Always.

Ocean’s 8

Sandra, Cate, Mindy, Rhianna…I’m there.

Incredibles 2

I had a weird infatuation with the original Incredibles when it came out fourteen years ago. I don’t plan on that changing with this one.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Will this movie be horrible? I’m not sure. Saving dinosaurs is a noble cause. And my quest to meet Chris Pratt so he can go ahead and start falling in love with me is equally noble. I can’t see that happening if I don’t watch everything he’s doing. I call this networking for future endeavors.

Ant-Man and The Wasp

Ant-Man was hilarious. I completely point the finger at Paul Rudd for making it one of my favorite under-rated Marvel movies. I think it’s because Paul speaks my love language: sarcasm.

July 27
Mission Impossible: Fallout

Oh you didn’t know Tom Cruise was still making Mission Impossible movies? Well he is and I adore every single one of them. I’ll never quit you Ethan Hunt!!!

July 20
Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again

It will be horrible. Like the first one. And I will love every second. Like the first one.

Definitely go see a Quiet Place! I DO NOT like scary movies, but made an exception for this since, well John Krasinski :), and I don’t regret it! I would say the movie is more suspenseful than scary and the over feeling/message is kind of beautiful! Definitely plays will all emotions! You’ll have to watch for yourself to understand what I’m saying because otherwise I’ll give away the story. I hope you go see it and let us know what you think!
