With advances in video cameras, movie theaters and sound technology it would be unwise of you to not attend an action packed blockbuster in the summer of 2014. The July and August lineup at the cinematic box office is better than ever and with Summer coming to an end you’re going to want to make sure and head to a theater before it’s too late.
There may come a day when mighty Marvel starts to fall, but it seems we’re not there yet. The first wave of reactions to Guardians of the Galaxy have just hit the web, and they’re nothing short of stunning. Critics are positively fawning over Guardians‘ action, humor, heart, and cinematography; some have even declared it Marvel’s finest film yet. Any fears that audiences won’t be able to connect to a superhero team that includes a gun-toting raccoon and a talking tree can officially be put to rest.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is out in theaters this weekend and it’s definitely a must see. It’s a tense, action-packed meditation on the intractability of tribalism, a summer blockbuster that actually has characters you care about and a story that will make you think. Beyond this, there were countless epic, transcendent moments throughout. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes may have been my favorite film of 2014 thus far.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is not only the latest chapter in the cinematic life of the X-Men. It is an attempt to rectify some mistakes made in previous films, particularly X-Men: The Last Stand. It is a Charles Xavier origin story of sorts, and also a Wolverine movie; no matter how many mutants Fox splashes on the posters, this is the continuation of Wolverine’s evolution from animal to man. And for a film that ranges from 1973 to future decades hence, it is also a rather contained, character-oriented story.
The Purge: Anarchy is one of those rare sequels that’s superior to the original film. It holds together better than the original Purge did, which became an exercise in histrionics during its homestretch. The sequel’s characters are more compelling than the protagonists of the first film, and the viewer gets a much better sense of the effect The Purge has on the community as a whole than in the housebound original film.
