On Friday, Erin from the blog Still Life, with Cracker Crumbs… shared her top 10 summer movies. It got me thinking about what mine would be. I also looked at two articles, one from Town and Country Magazine and Pure Wow, to trigger some ideas.
I share two with Erin with Stand By Me and The Parent Trap, sort of, except it’s the 1998 version with Lindsay Lohan. My other eight are, in alphabetical order:
- 500 Days of Summer
- Breaking Away
- Crazy Rich Asians
- Do The Right Thing
- Field of Dreams
- Forgetting Sarah Marshall
- Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
- Moonrise Kingdom
My wife Kim shares five with me, Do The Right Thing, Field of Dreams, Moonrise Kingdom, and Stand By Me. Her other five are: Jaws, A League of Their Own Own, Mystic Pizza, Rear Window, and…one other to be determined, that I’ll add here later. She didn’t want to be pressured into a decision.
Instead of sharing the trailers from all of them, I think I’ll just share one of my favorite parts of Do The Right Thing, which probably is my favorite summer movie:
How about you? What are some of your favorite movies set during the summer?
