For this motive, studios often release their biggest films at the end of spring and starting of summer season, and they wind up producing thousands and thousands in ticket sales.
Inside summer of 2012, the undisputed champion in the box business office was “The Avengers.” Above the summer time, it brought in a lot more than $620 million. This was expected; the numerous Marvel superheroes acquired been getting personal films, so an ensemble cast was significantly anticipated. Joss Whedon, the author/director of “The Avengers” allow witty dialogue and extraordinary action shine by means of just about every character, specially Iron Gentleman/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). If “The Dark Knight Rises” experienced been released previously, it would have surely taken the spot. Having said that, “The Avengers” experienced a two-30 days direct.
In 2011, “Harry Potter as well as the Deathly Hallows: Element two” was the winner with more than $380 million raised for the box business office over the summer time. It absolutely was the closing installment in the “Harry Potter” series, which acquired been within the creating for more than 10 years, beginning aided by the debut of “Harry Potter and also the Sorcerer’s Stone” in 2001. Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson reprised their roles as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger. The video concluded aided by the action-packed duel in between Harry and Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) plus the 19-year-later on epilogue using the characters’ children headed to Hogwarts.
2010 saw the 3rd installment within the “Toy Story” trilogy from Pixar. “Toy Story 3″ earned $415 million. It was collection a number of several years after the prior entry and noticed the human character Andy heading away from to college, leaving his playthings with a daycare and ultimately discovering them a fresh dwelling. Tom Hanks and Tim Allen reprised their roles as the two main characters, Woody and Buzz Lightyear, respectively. “Toy Story three or more” wrapped up the trilogy, and it is really doable that foreseeable future entries could come about.
2009, meanwhile, brought “Transformers two: Revenge of your Fallen” to theaters. As a continuation of the popular cartoon-centered franchise, “Transformers two” built $402 million at the box place of work, while it’s widely regarded as to generally be the worst with the three Transformers films.

The place the primary video thorough the Caped Crusader’s origins and very first encounters with Ra’s al-Ghul and Scarecrow, “The Dark Knight” brought iconic villain The Joker into your fray. The functionality with the late Heath Ledger was 1 contributing issue from the movie’s $533 million gross. It can be arguably one with the most successful superhero films actually, equally critically and within the field place of work, mainly because it took area inside a a lot more ‘sensible’ entire world. It also does not injure that Batman is understandably by far the most common superhero ever.
2007 received however yet another superhero movie because the leading summer months performer. This time, it absolutely was Marvel’s “Spider-Person several.” The web-slinger raised $336 million in theaters. This specific film was well-liked maybe mainly because it brought one among Spider-Gentleman’s most iconic foes on screen: Venom. A lot of superhero movie franchises attempt to obtain their most iconic villains dealt with from the initially video, leaving the remainder anticlimactic. If, for instance, “Batman Starts” received featured The Joker because the principal antagonist, the draw for “The Dark Knight” would seemingly not are already as great.
The recent trend of superhero films and adaptations has not gone unnoticed. The major cause folks flock to these movies is the anticipation. Until finally recently, comic ebook-themed films have not been feasible because of a lack of unique effects technological innovation that will make them glance convincing. This specifically applies to “ The Avengers ” and “Transformers.” The Batman films showed that superhero films could possibly be worth watching in their very own suitable, featuring compelling characters and plot. “Deathly Hallows,” as the last film from the popular “Harry Potter” book series, experienced a sizable number of people eager to see how the Battle of Hogwarts and equivalent huge sequences can be presented about the huge monitor. The coming decades are sure to view even more superhero-themed blockbuster films.

Superman epitomizes humans’ loftiest ideas of a benevolent being in power. Superman is often observed putting his life on the line to protect the human race from enemies and follies alike.

In most action movies, you can expect for the hero to have some kind of “tough guy” job. He’ll probably be a cop, a bounty hunter or maybe even a Navy Seal or something else along those lines. The French film Point Blank takes a different approach and has their protagonist dreaming of a job that you wouldn’t normally associate with an action hero. This dude wants to be a nurse.
Samuel Pierret (Gilles Lellouche) is an aspiring nurse who has a pregnant wife (Elena Anaya) at home and about to give birth soon. After returning home on a night where he saved someone’s life at the hospital, he finds himself in a state of desperation and fear when his wife gets kidnapped. He learns that a criminal named Sartet (Roschdy Zem) may be involved in the kidnapping when he gets a mysterious phone call. The person on the other line tells Samuel that he has to do what he’s directed to do in order to see his wife alive again. Samuel agrees and suddenly finds himself in the middle of illegal activities with cops and criminals on both sides coming after him.
I didn’t know what I was going to get by watching this movie and I put off seeing it for a long time. My faith in the French action genre had taken a hit after viewing some of the movies from this genre. I’m being nice when I say the one’s that I had seen before this were rather boring and uneventful. I finally chose to take a look at Point Blank one night when I didn’t have much to do, and I felt like taking in an a short action that I had never seen before.
Giving it a chance turned out to be good for me, because I got exactly what I was hoping for and a little bit more than that. This is certainly an action packed flick, but it largely depends on the suspense that the movie includes. The film’s energy and personality is created by the frantic pace that is set early on and it consist of constant movement, relentless levels of angst and the overall point of not knowing everything from the outset.
The actual action scenes take a back seat to all of the other aspects of this suspenseful thriller. The shootouts, fights and other acts of violence are certainly good, but none of it ever really stacks up to the rest of the action and anticipation that go along with the twists and turns that the viewers will experience here. Those elements are so important to Point Blank that I even forgot about the guy’s future aspirations and all of that stuff, because I was completely focused on the actual story that’s being told.
Like the rest of the movie, the end of Point Blank is filled with suspense. It does however suffer from a flaw. The ending isn’t as good as I had hoped and it didn’t stand up to the rest of the film. I took issue with the film’s climax, because it’s simply implausible. That hurt the movie a bit for me and I didn’t score it as high as I wanted to because of it. I will say that the ending isn’t bad and it’s even better if you suspend your use of common sense and you just ignore the fact that you know that what happens is almost impossible.
I also feel the need to point out the fact that this is another recent movie that uses the shaky camera technique. This technique has numerous appearances in several movies since it was popularized by The Bourne Identity back in 2002. You can say that it’s overdone and overused these and that may be true to some degree. With that being said, I do believe that the shaky cam can still be utilized and put to good use if done correctly and under the right circumstances.
Point Blank uses the shaky cam the way that it should be used. It’s done in a couple of scenes and they’re into service properly and are barely noticeable. If directors are going to continue to use things like this to add more intensity to their scenes in film, this would be the way to do it. In this movie you can always tell what’s going on when everything is shaking and it never gets in the way for the simple fact that it’s not being abused or used in excess.
Despite me having some issues with the ending, I loved Point Blank as a whole. Having a fast paced action movie filled with suspense, conspiracies and mystery will always be something that I’d be willing to pay attention to. This is a movie that I foolishly underestimated going in. I gave it a chance and I’d say that I was actually rewarded with a quality action thriller that I wish was a little longer than it is.

As summer approaches, moviegoers’ thoughts wander to up-and-coming blockbusters, action movies with big-name stars and even bigger explosions, and high-budget animated family fare. In all the splashy excitement and heavy advertising, however, it can sometimes be easy to overlook classic films in a related yet different genre: movies that celebrate the summer season itself.
During the summer, the sun is still out even after an hour when many kids would have to go to bed during the school year. Sleepovers, late-night dates, and travel become more the norm than the exception. Summer has a kind of anarchy to it; rules that apply throughout the rest of the year are suspended, and anything can happen. Great summer movies reflect that freedom from the rules-along with the excitement, the romance, the horror, or the absurdity it can cause.
Summer takes on different meanings as people age. For kids, it’s a break from school; for teenagers, it might include dates and part-time jobs; and for adults, it’s often just the same old same old. Few things bring that as starkly to light as teenagers’ last summer before graduating from high school-often the last chance they’ll have to enjoy everything life has to offer without being burdened by responsibility. The George Lucas classic “American Graffiti” takes that concept a step farther, focusing on the final night of one group of teens’ last childhood summer.
Steve (Ron Howard) and Laurie (Cindy Williams) break up and get back together. Curt (Richard Dreyfuss) meets a mysterious blonde who may or may not have a seedy past and goes to great lengths to pursue her. Toad (Charles Martin Smith) and John (Paul Le Mat) go cruising, and John later races Bob (Harrison Ford) and Laurie (Cindy Williams), who barely walk away after Bob flips his car.
Romance, fast cars, minor mysteries, rock-and roll music, and brushes with death-anything can happen on the last day of summer, and in “American Graffiti,” it does.
“Dirty Dancing” (1987)
Sheltered, wealthy Baby (Jennifer Grey) spends her summer vacation in the Catskills with her physician father (Jerry Orbach). Hard-bodied dance instructor Johnny (Patrick Swayze) quickly captures Baby’s attention, and she develops a crush that only grows after she’s invited to a clandestine after-hours staff dance party, where Johnny teaches her some of the finer points of the mambo.
After a serious of unpleasant events, Baby’s father forbids her from seeing Johnny. Discovering her own independence for the first time, Baby sneaks around with Johnny anyway and only reveals their relationship when Johnny is falsely accused of theft.
“Dirty Dancing” combines one part coming of age, one part summer camp, one part dance, and one part romance. These elements are underscored with a sweeping soundtrack and garnished with a dollop of high drama to make “Dirty Dancing” a classic summer story.
“Stand by Me” (1986)
Gordie (Wil Wheaton), Chris (River Phoenix), Teddy (Corey Feldman), and Vern (Jerry O’Connell) are four misfit young friends. After Vern overhears his brother discussing a body he found while he was disposing of a stolen car, he convinces his buddies they should go searching for it. The body is that of a high-profile missing child, and the boys are sure that if they locate it, they’ll be rewarded with fame.
“Stand by Me” has a simple and straightforward plot, but it’s an adventure kids could only take over the summer, when they’re free to explore, camp out, and disappear for a weekend. The friends bond over the journey, and this moment in time becomes pivotal in their understanding of each other-and of themselves. It’s a coming-of-age story largely centered on character development, but it calls to mind those young teenage moments of self discovery that only seem to occur on summer adventures with friends.
When Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Murray, and Chevy Chase team up, plot becomes almost irrelevant. “Caddyshack” has been widely hailed as one of the funniest movies of all time, and it’s also a great example of lighthearted, uproarious summer fun.
Danny (Michael O’Keefe) is working at the country club, often caddying for golfing sensation Ty Webb (Chase). Danny ends up involved in a feud between the club’s cofounder, Judge Smails (Ted Knight), and wealthy jerk Al Czervik (Dangerfield). Meanwhile, bumbling assistant groundskeeper Carl (Murray) has been tasked with the surprisingly difficult job of eliminating a pesky gopher.
Carl eventually resorts to the nuclear option to deal with the gopher. Danny puts his job and a scholarship on the line to golf for Czervik in his duel with Smails. Naturally, these events coincide, leading to hilarious hijinks. “Caddyshack” requires suspension of disbelief and a strong sense of humor, and it’s perfect summertime popcorn fare.
The first entry in National Lampoon’s “Vacation” series sees the Griswold family embarking on a cross-country road trip to visit Walley World. Clark ( Chevy Chase ) attempts to trade in the family car for a sporty new wagon, but at the dealership, he winds up with an unappealing vehicle: “The Family Truckster.”
His wife Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo) and kids, Rusty (Anthony Michael Hall) and Audrey (Dana Barron), are less than enthused about hitting the road in the Truckster, but Clark talks them around. What follows is a road trip of epic comedy and abject failure-from getting stranded in the desert to the unexpected on-the-road death of Aunt Edna (Imogene Coca), everything that can go wrong does. Unflinchingly hilarious, the movie includes something for everyone who’s ever taken a summer family vacation, and it serves as a cautionary tale for those who haven’t.
