Time to say good-bye to summer. If you’re a movie lover like me, it’s also a time to look back at the second most important time of the year – summer movies.
My favorite was Ricki and The Flash. For me, this was a story about the incredibly high price you pay when you try to lead an authentic life. It’s hard and most people won’t understand you.
On the bottom of my list was Entourage. It was so bad I couldn’t get up and leave. Not clever, and even the bathroom humor was bad bathroom humor. Tomorrowland, however, I did leave in the middle of.
Among the action movies, I loved Mission Impossible, Rogue Nation. This franchise does what it does really well. Another fun movie was Man From U.N.C.L.E., which was part action movie, part period piece. Speaking of period pieces, Mr. Holmes was beautiful to watch but slooooow as molasses. The Gift had a classic scary movie vibe. Loved it, too. No Escape was exciting. Owen Wilson was seen as an unusual choice for the lead, but he pulled it off. Aloha starred Bradley Cooper, who never ceases to amaze me. I also saw Minions. Don’t judge me – I took pity on a friend whose wife was hosting her book club, leaving him with the two little girls. Sandra Bullock is such a good actress, even when she is only using her voice. Speaking of good actresses, Melissa McCarthy was wonderful in Spy.
Time to rest up for the Christmas movies!
Do let me know your favorite summer 2015 flick.
