7 Things: My Favorite Summer Movies (2014)

Summer is a big season for blockbuster movies, and here in the Jones' household we love going to the theater. I saw 9 films in theaters this summer (for the purposes of this list, the summer movie season began in April with Captain America 2. Will and I both agree on this, so it must be true!) and really enjoyed 7 of them. So here, in order, are my Top 7 Movies of the summer of 2014. As always, dissenting opinions are welcome!

  1. Guardians of the Galaxy
  2. Begin Again
  3. Captain America, Winter Soldier
  4. X-Men: Days of Future Past
  5. Jersey Boys
  6. Godzilla
  7. Sex Tape
To be honest, you could put numbers 1-4 in any order and I would still be happy about the list. Those were all tremendous films. If you didn't see Begin Again, see it when it comes out on blu ray. Mark Ruffalo should get (but won't) an Oscar nod for his performance and the music is awesome. Guardians was hilarious and exciting, plus it was just so NEW and featured music from my childhood! I didn't have any idea what was coming next in the plot. Cap 2 may be my favorite of the Avengers series so far, and Days of Future Past was nearly perfect as superhero movie. Jersey Boys had all that great music, Godzilla was a wonderful surprise and Sex Tape was just flat-out funny. So that's my list. I'd love to hear your thoughts- unless you liked Transformers 4. That makes me question your judgement on everything!  Have a great Thursday!

  1. I realized after posting this that I forgot "Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which was also a fine film. This is why old men should write things down... LOL
