Rewind Repost: Top Summer 2014 Must-See Movies 12 comments

If you read this blog on the regular, you know how I love movies and am constantly trying to find time to watch them. While doing tasks to earn Swag Bucks last week, I watched some awesome movie trailers for upcoming movies. Here are a few for you to enjoy.

 Top Summer 2014 Must-See Movies by


The Dropone of James ‘Tony Soprano’ Gandolfini’s last films


Who doesn’t love James Gandolfini? Brilliant as Tony Soprano on HBO‘s The Sopranos, he’s a talent gone too soon. The Drop is a drama about two guys, Marv (Gandolfini) and Bob (Tom Hardy) who work in a Brooklyn bar used as a money drop for local criminals. The bar is robbed of all the seedy cash and the action ensues. The script is based on Dennis Lehane’s (author of the novels “Mystic River,” “Gone Baby Gone,” and “Shutter Island”) short story, “Animal Rescue”. Release date: September 19, 2014


TammyStarring Melissa McCarthy who is one of THE funniest character actresses on the planet



I actually saw a different movie trailer for the hilarious new comedy, Tammy, which only shows McCarthy robbing a fast food place. To the theme of Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise”. I couldn’t stop laughing! Then I saw this trailer with Kathy Bates and Susan Sarandon. Hysterical. The movie was written by McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone, who is also the director. Release date: July 2, 2014


Let’s Be Cops–Starring Damon Wayans Jr. Enough said! Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson, who also co-star together on the FOX comedy New Girl, play pals who dress up as cops for a costume party. After being treated as real cops while out on the street, they decide to have a little fun with it. But they can’t seem to stop and take it way too far. Release date: August 13, 2014


Sex Tape–a stunning title for hilarious hijinks. Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel play a married couple who want to reignite their lackluster love life. They decide to make a sex tape that they plan to delete afterwards. But the video syncs to their cloud account and is distributed to friends and family members. Diaz and Segel, who are great comedic actors, take drastic measures as they race to stop their loved ones from seeing it. “Nobody understands the cloud, it’s a #$%&*!@ mystery!” Release date: July 25, 2014


The Fault in Our Stars–a beautiful teen love story that transcends age



I read about lots of anticipation on Facebook for this movie, based on the best-selling book by John Green. Then I saw the trailer and fell in love. A young cancer patient who doesn’t know how long she will live meets a boy who shows her how to live. I can’t wait to see this romantic comedy/drama. It stars up-and-comers Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. Release date: June 6, 2014


Which one of these movies are you anxious to see?

Will you be spending more time in the movie theaters this Summer? Less?

Do you go to see movies on their opening weekend? Or prefer to wait until the weeks following?

    My husband and I used to go see a movie once a week, but then there were so many duds that we stopped. Looks like some good ones coming out this summer – fingers crossed. Thanks for sharing.

    And we usually wait until they’ve been out a week or so when we do go to a movie.

      If I go see a movie on opening weekend, I will go to the matinee showing. Thanks Alli!

    I love this lost since I am a big movie buff! I still can’t believe Tony is gone as in James Gandolfini. The movie sounds great. I have also heard great things about the fault in our stars and Shailene Woodley is such a great actress! The other comedies look like a hot mess! Perfect for summer! Lol

      Hopefully I will get to see all of these movies this summer. Thanks Nadeen!

      We are NetFlix fans and I just won 3 months free in a giveaway!

      It’s going to be a two tissue box kind of movie, Kate! I just know it.

    I prefer to wait, don’t like crowds.

    The only movie I really want to see is “When the Game Stands Tall.” It more of less about one of our local high school football teams-De La Salle of Concord and their remarkable journey from being an after thought to winning a national record of 151 straight games. It focuses on their coach and how they conducted business-the right way.

      Movies about events and people you have insight on are the best. Thanks, Patrick!
