As you can see by the ‘bio’ in my header I’m a bit movie obsessed.  We try and get to the theater once a week.  Usually we hit most of the blockbusters.  This summer though I have a couple of movies on my “must see” list that you either may not have heard of or haven’t gotten the press that others receive.

1. The Fault in Our Stars – My Must See Love Story

Hazel and Gus are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them — and us – on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love.

In theaters this Friday June 6th, 2014.

Starring Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Willem Dafoe, Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, Mike Birbiglia, and Emily Peachey
Directed by Josh Boone
Screenplay by Scott Neustadter, based on the book by John Green
Produced by Marty Bowen, Wyck Godfrey

I’m fully prepared to carry a box of tissues in with me to The Fault in Our Stars and walk out with none left.  But from the trailer and the reviews I’ve read, this is going to be an inspiring movie that is more than just entertainment but introspective as well.

2. How to Train Your Dragon 2 – My Must See Animated Movie

3. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – My Must See Action/Adventure Movie

Set 15 years after the events of 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will focus on a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar (Andy Serkis), threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

4. Lucy – My Must See Thriller Movie

An action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

5. The Giver – My Must See Drama/Sci-Fi Movie

Based on an award winning book; at the age of sixteen, Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young boy from a seemingly utopian, futuristic world, is singled out to receive special training from The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who alone holds the memories of the true joys and pain of life.

Are you all over the map when it comes to movies?  Do you enjoy watching a love story movie?  Then you may want to go see a Fault in Our Stars.  What’s on your must see list for the summer?

  1. I lost my dad and uncle to cancer, so when I see movies with that base line I always am a little leery. I am super sensitive to that, and cry easily, but I do want to see this movie and hopefully I won't cry that much! I loved her in Secret Life of the American Teenager, so nice to see a new role for her!

  2. I have read the reviews and think that this is a very good movie to see. It is an inspiring love story! I love love stories where there are obstacles and it does not look like they will fall in love, but love wins. I have to see this movie.

  3. My 18 year old wants to see this, but I don't think I will be able to, I couldn't finish the book because it was so sad! Guardians of the Galaxy is my must see movie this summer, although the new Tom Cruise one Edge of Tomorrow sounds good too.
