Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Summer Movies

I like to get out of the house, relax, and enjoy a good movie. Summer is the best time to see a movie because theaters are kept icy cold! Here is list of the proposed 10 best summer movies. If you watch them, post a comment and let me know if It is worth viewing.

  • Brüno (Opens July 10)
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Opens July 15)
  • Inglourious Basterds (Opens Aug. 21)
  • Julie & Julia (Opens Aug. 7)
  • Public Enemies (Opens July 1) –
  • Star Trek
  • Taking Woodstock (TBA)
  • Terminator Salvation
  • Up
  • Whatever Works (TBA)

Not of their list, but movies I can't wait to see are Transformers: Revenge of the fallen which opens June 23, and The Proposal with Sandra Bullock opening June 19. I hope you enjoy the summer movies, but don't forget to visit the library! Having fun is great, but School work is important too.

"The Proposal" looks like it will be good.

I really want to go see Up, the new Harry Potter movie, and Julie & Julia. Plus, Sandra Bullock's films are always an enjoyable time.

If you're not sure what movie you'd like to see and want to look up some titles, The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has a useful "Summer Movie Guide" page that comes in handy for picking movies to watch "on the big screen" in the climate-controlled coolness of a theater.

Want to rent some of the movies you haven't seen, but don't know which ones to pick? The IMDb also has a "Genre Browser" page that lets you look up movies by genre.

Features on the page include:
-- The top movies per genre (as voted by IMDb users)
-- Luminaries of the genre (popular stars and filmmakers)
-- Top level link to the genre's message boards
-- Recently searched genre titles
-- IMDb's recommendation for a film in that genre

Cathy, your comment would be a great blog entry.

Well, that's what I was trying to do in a tangential way :-)

I figured responding to the original post and adding some more ideas was a way to 1) respond and stay active as one of the blog's readers and 2) use the comment as a post, too, so I can stay active as a poster.

It would be really nice if we could get some robust threads woven into many of the posts on this blog.

There's been some really great tips, ideas, sources, etc. posted, but they seem to "disappear" in the scrolling chronology of the blog format. However, the tags have helped fix that issue tremendously.
