Hero Worship

This summer, we’ve witnessed what a bit of hero worship can accomplish, as the “Transformers: Age of Extinction” crew did their power-driven best to transform the Hollywood landscape, as good (i.e. phenomenal ticket sales) battled evil (i.e. empty theater seats). This weekend, we’re invited to once again partake in a conqueror’s tale, as “Hercules” makes his heroic appearance, seeking vengeance and box-office success. Hot on his mythological heels, “Lucy” will be doing her warrior best to level the playing field, rising in time to battle the baddies and greet (and, at least in her own, superpower mind, beat) the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.”
After barely surviving the less-than-sensational release of the “Sex Tape,” our happy, R-rated couple is ready for just about anything (cinematically speaking). Of course, sensitive movie-going eyes exposed to the aforementioned video may require “The Purge: Anarchy,” where chaos and horrors of a less-personal nature are experienced. On the PG-rated front, the “Planes: Fire & Rescue” team continue to soar above the colorful crowd, promising to save audiences of all ages from a horrifying fate (a.k.a. uninspiring entertainment).
Luckily, there’s “Magic in the Moonlight,” with an enchanting time promised to all who attend.
“And So It Goes,” the Summer of 2014, spent happily in the coolest neighborhood movie theater, where the dawn of a new movie day promises endless entertainment and the ultimate vacation from reality (and the scent of buttered popcorn is guaranteed to prevail over the smell of suntan lotion).
Are you ready for a reality break?
