The Movie To Do List

Barbeque, beach, sunshine and SPF; a weekend in the summer offers endless outdoor possibilities, but what about the indoor type (who prefer movie lines to tan lines?) This last weekend in July finds so many things on our movie “To Do List” as “The Conjuring” to find quality summer films continues. Wondering where to begin this mid-summer weekend? Perhaps on a train platform in Oakland’s “Fruitvale Station,” where stark reality invades our escapist world. Those looking for a more lighthearted form of entertainment can add the “To Do List” to their movie roster and relive (or experience) coming of age in the 1990’s. “The Wolverine” seems primed to hog the superhero limelight thanks to the heroic Hugh Jackman, who hopes to find more fans than the equally heroic but lonely “Lone Ranger.” The X-Man quickly learns he has more than ninjas to battle in movie land, where animation and comedy have found a sunny (not to mention profitable) home during the summer of 2013. As the X-Man takes on “The Heat,” the red-hot minions are heard shouting “Despicable Me 2”the non-animated characters sailing by at “Turbo” speed. “The Girl Most Likely” to hit on the hairy idol seems uninterested in the comedies appearing on the big screen, as her life at present feels like one big joke. The colorful “Red 2” gang finds sunburns ludicrous and sequels anything but laughable while the “Grown Ups 2” mature for animation are finding the residents at “R.I.P.D” lively and entertaining. Then there’s the oddly amusing Woody Allen, sailing on American shores where the hint of “Blue Jasmine” lingers.
All of our diverse characters agree on one thing; whichever form of entertainment you choose this weekend, your local multiplex promises a spirited time without those annoying tan lines…
