I like movies, but I don't like paying movie theater prices. It's hard to justify paying $16-$20 a pop for my husband and I to see ONE movie, especially since we have a hellacious satellite bill (we apparently have every movie channel known to man). In addition to waiting for movies to come out on one of the numerous movies channels we have access to, we also rent them for $2 at Redbox and view them for free on the Amazon Fire Stick my husband bought back in the winter.
I guess you could call me a Movie Cheapskate...
Occasionally, though, there are movies I get so excited about that I MUST see them in the theater. I either simply can't wait for them to come out on DVD or I want to have the full cinema experience (big screen, popcorn, surround sound) while watching them. Summer is right around the corner, so the season of big, Hollywood blockbusters is upon us. I must admit, there are a handful of movies that I have been highly anticipating seeing in the theater.
First up is Me Before You, which will be released on June 3. Me Before You is the movie adaptation of the book of the same name. I suspect when I go to see it that the audience will be comprised of 90% women.
Next, is Finding Dory, which hits theaters on June 17. I loved, loved, loved Finding Nemo, but let's be honest - Dory made the movie. How can I not get super psyched over a sequel featuring the world's most lovable and forgetful blue tang?
The third movie I'm excited to see in a theater is Independence Day: Resurgence, which comes out on June 24. In all honesty, I'm not a big action adventure type movie fan, but there's something about this movie that interests me. Perhaps it's drawing on the nostalgia I have of the prequel, Independence Day, which I saw in the theater during the summer of 1996. Perhaps it's because Independence Day is a movie that both my husband and I will stop on when channel surfing. I don't know why, but I'm very excited to see this.
The last one on my list is The Secret Life of Pets, which will be released on July 8. I have been talking about this animation since I first saw the trailer back in the winter. I'm an animal lover and I love animations, so I have HIGH expectations for this movie.
What summer movies are you looking forward to seeing this summer?
As always, thanks for stopping by. Happy movie viewing to you!
