3 summer movies I want to see

I plan on taking the nephews to a bunch of movies this summer.  Here are 3 summer movies that aren’t targeted to me but I secretly want to see.  Raise your hand if you’ll never out grow Disney movies and big thanks to the nephews for giving me an excuse to see them in theaters 🙂




Cars 2

Cars 2.  I love everything Pixar (but who doesn’t?).  Unfortunately rotten tomatoes reports this one fell a little short.  Personally I enjoyed the movie but I can see why people would say this was sub par.  I don’t want to pick apart the movie (because I enjoyed it) but I would like to make a few small observations:

  1. Adult-ish themes – The whole secret agent / spy /James Bond thing kind of went over the kids head.
  2. Adult-ish jokes – There seemed to be more jokes aimed at the older audience members.  Not dirty jokes, but jokes that kids wouldn’t get.  Like one car thought another car was attractive and said “she needed to go get some coolant”.  I laughed but my nephew leaned over and asked me “What’s coolant”.
  3. I didn’t cry – Ok fine, I’ll admit it.  I’ve teared up at least once during all the other Pixar movies.  I didn’t even come close here.
In theaters: June 24, 2011
