This month we’re going all low brow and ordering a kilogram of buttered popcorn and a tankard of Coca-Cola to do our now annual summer blockbuster discussion. Up for discussion are reviews and reaction to X-Men: Days of Future Past, Edge of Tomorrow and Godzilla and a look ahead to Transformers: Age of Extinction, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Guardians of the Galaxy. We also briefly put the blockbusters to one side to highlight two great films from May – A Touch of Sin and Blue Ruin.
With Tom Cruise in cinemas with Edge of Tomorrow we’re also travelling back in time to consider some of the big blockbusters that pulled us into our local multiplex ten years ago including his film Collateral, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Spider-Man 2, The Village, DodgeBall, AnchorMan, The Passion of the Christ and Fahrenheit 9/11. The full “Scene It” segment from Collateral is embedded below.
And lastly, as always, we look ahead to the next 30 days to see the delights in store for us, which this month include 22 Jump Street, Fruitvale Station and Mrs. Brown’s Boys.
