Summer Blues

Feeling a little blue that summer is soaring by at (a box-office disappointment) “Turbo” speed?
The “Smurfs 2” are wishing these lazy, crazy, hazy days of summer would slow to a more enjoyable, as well as profitable, pace. “The Wolverine” has been knocking at their colorful door, threatening to knock them off their animated pedestal their first week out to play. His weapon of choice? Perhaps he can borrow “2 Guns” from comrades Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, who are all about taking down the drug cartel as well as anyone who stands in their movie-crime-fighting way (including innocent animated creatures).
“Turbo” notwithstanding, movie buffs have shown a great deal of love to our eclectic, animated stars this summer. The non-animated stars, meanwhile, emphatically state “Despicable Me 2” to be life-size yet lacking in such lively, computer-generated form.
We’ve seen our share of heroes and horrors, animated characters and action-oriented idols. We’ve seen movies catering to kids and “Grown Ups 2,”with comedy and “The Conjuring” finding a sweet spot during the rollercoaster summer of 2013
There’s no better time to spend in your multiplex than “The Spectacular Now,” where teen angst looks even prettier on the big screen (as do even the tiniest of starlets)…
