Logan’s Home Video Update returns with summer ...
Logan’s Home Video Update is back! With summer movie season in full swing, I have decided to revamp the series with movies to watch alongside this summer’s biggest hits.
How to Train Your Dragon (PG, 98 minutes- starring the voices of Jay Baruchel and Gerard Butler)
One of the best (non-Pixar) animated films of the past decade, this smash hit was loved by children, adults and critics. The sequel, How to Train Your Dragon 2, is out in theaters right now, so you can make it a day with an afternoon viewing of the first movie at home and a nighttime showing of the sequel in theaters.
Sleeping Beauty (G, 75 minutes- starring the voices of Mary Costa and Eleanor Audley)
With the alternate take on Sleeping Beauty’s chief antagonist (Maleficent) currently in theaters, now is the perfect time to go back and visit one of Disney’s most beloved classic animated films.
Transformers (PG-13, 144 minutes- starring Shia LaBeouf)
Before the rebooted phase of this lucrative franchise kicks off this weekend with Transformers: Age of Extinction, go back and watch the movie that started it all. Say what you will about the sequels (I think the third movie is worth defending), but the first film filled audience members with wonder thanks to unbelievable visual effects and robot fighting action.
The X-Men Film Series (X-Men, X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, X-Men: First Class, The Wolverine)
X-Men: Days of Future Past has been the biggest hit and one of the best reviewed films of the summer season so far. Before seeing it, make sure to catch up on the previous six movies in the franchise to be completely prepared for the globe-hopping, time-travel comic book adventure. In my opinion, it is the best film of 2014 so far. Make sure to stay for the post-credits sequence.
I hope you enjoy my recommendations and see some movies this weekend!
