There are so many movies coming out this summer that look amazing that I’m probably going to go broke by the end of summer just from movies. Luckily since I’m home, we have a theatre near my house that does $5 matinee movies so I still have some room in my budget for popcorn. This week I saw Finding Dory after work one night and then Now You See Me 2 Friday afternoon. I really liked both movies, especially since they were sequels to movies I love. Finding Dory was excellently done, and they did a great job at including things from the previous movie that we grew up with along with introducing fun new characters and plots. Little Dory was the cutest and I want to thank whoever came up with the idea of a near-sighted whale as a character. I also read somewhere that the reason Hank the octopus only had seven legs was that they drew his body first and realized they didn’t have enough room for all eight legs. I thought that was pretty funny. As for Now You See Me 2,I love Jesse Eisenberg and Mark Ruffalo so I’m kind of partial to this series. It was kind of slow in the beginning, but then it picked up with this really cool card/theft scene and from there it was just as exciting as the last. I definitely think I need to watch it again to fully understand everything that happened though. Now I’m looking forward to Ghostbusters and Nerve.
Have you seen any good movies lately?
