The DVD Critics Corner 2015 Summer Movie Wrap Up Thing!

Pixels-Movie

Hey folks. It’s Tom, your friend from DVD Critics Corner.

How are you? Is the family okay? Did that problem you had with that loan shark named Cheech work itself out?

Good. I hope you were able to keep your thumbs.

Anyhoo, The Man from U.N.C.L.E has hit the theaters, which means the 2015 summer movie season is pretty much over.

It was a great summer for movies as far as I’m concerned. It was not a great summer for my curbside lemonade stand. Not only did I loose money, but received three visits from the health department and sixty unfavorable reviews from Yelp. Who reads Yelp anyway? I’m just a simple man trying to run a business…

But I digest.

This summer the movie going audience was treated to a wonderous cornucopia of movies; some of which were not sequels, reboots or remakes! There were Avengers avenging, Terminators terminating, and Minions minioning. We laughed, we cried, and we learned once again that combining amusement parks and carnivorous dinosaurs is about as smart as putting the Entourage cast in a major motion picture.

No. Please no.

No. Please no.

Enough frivolity, lets get to the summer movie reviewin’.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Synopsis: Hijinks abound as Iron Man and his pals take on a sentient robot who’s not very up with people!

What The Fans Said: Woo Hoo! Joss Whedon must have read my blog because he fixed everything I hated about the first Avengers movie!

What Tom Says: Avengers 2 kicked butt. James Spader must play the villain in every movie from now on. I’m serious James. Do it.

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD

Synopsis: Post Apocalyptic Australia’s favorite Police Officer is back and way beyond Thunderdome!

What The Fans Said: What a lovely day!

What Tom Says: Three decades later and George Miller hasn’t lost his ability to stage an exciting chase scene. I loved every sand covered minute of it!

JURASSIC WORLD

Synopsis: Real life CG dinosaurs run amok in an amusement park and only Star Lord and Ron Howard’s daughter can stop them!

What The Fans Said: Is Jeff Goldblum in this one?

What Tom Says: Didn’t see it. I don’t like dinosaurs. A raptor stole my lunch money in fifth grade, okay?

ANT-MAN

Synopsis: The guy from Anchorman is now an Ant-Man! I know! Weird, huh?

What People Said: Edgar Wright isn’t directing this? This is gonna suck! I mean I’ll see it, but I am going to hate it!

What Tom Says: Holy crap, how did they make Michael Douglas look 30? It’s sorcery, I tell ya!

Seriously, Ant-Man was tons of fun.

PIXELS

Synopsis: Adam Sandler plays a guy blah blah blah and video games come to life and oh look, Kevin James is in this too! Big freakin surprise.

What People Said: Yeah, we took a poll and we decided that Adam Sandler should stop making movies.

What Tom Says: Didn’t see it. Apparently I wasn’t the only one.

And the rest….

Mission Impossible Rogue Nation – Didn’t see it. Sorry Tom. Loved the trailer when you hung off the plane. Very cool.

Minions – Didn’t see it. If there’s no Gru, then nuts to you!

San Andreas – Didn’t see it. From what I heard final score was The Rock 1, San Andreas 0.

Terminator: Genysis  – Sorry, I missyd thys movye.

Inside Out – Didn’t see it.

Vacation: Wasn’t crazy about the original.

Trainwreck – Noooooooooo.

Fantastic Four – You know what? I’m gonna leave this one alone. It’s been through enough.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
