As I started to put this post together, I realized this might be the last summer where my top priority will be catching the best and biggest spectacles Hollywood has to offer. This will be the last time going to the movies won’t involve babysitters or telling my child “Shh”. I swore to myself a long time ago that I would never be that person who brings their child into the movie theater until they understand the concept of sitting quietly for two hours. If that means missing The Avengers 2 in 2015, so be it. Sigh.
I’m getting ahead of myself. We’re not there yet.
5. Pacific Rim (July 12)
It was between this and The Wolverine for the number five spot but I picked Pacific Rim. The Wolverine, while promising, still has the potential to suck. I’ve already been burned once by a Wolverine movie. Besides I’ve enjoyed every Guillermo del Toro I’ve ever seen and let’s be honest. This is a film about gigantic man-controlled robots facing giant monsters in battle.. That may sound silly or stupid to you but to 13 year old Sean, it sounds like a dream come true.
