— You may remember that during the spring, we didn’t have much of a theater season.
For many of us, it was a year of bad weather, a year in which the snow and the freezing rain turned into an unending monsoon of mud and rain.
For some, it felt like it was just the start of the year.
But with that being said, we’re back in August.
And what better way to celebrate than with a look at some of the best movies and theater events that will take place over the next few months?
And the best part is, you can watch them all at the same time!
It’s like we were all in the theater, enjoying a magical summer vacation in the middle of nowhere!
So let’s break down some of our favorite summer movies to keep you entertained this summer and get you ready for what’s to come in 2019.
Here are our picks for the best summer movie season so far.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (December 15) In the year of the hobbits, a little town in the woods is the best place to visit.
We know, this isn’t exactly a true story but you won’t be disappointed by the performances and story telling.
The film takes place in a fantasy world called Middle-earth and stars Tom Holland as Bilbo Baggins, Bilbo’s father.
The story is told through the eyes of a Hobbit, Bilka Baggins (Charlize Theron), who is the youngest of his three sons and the son of Bilbo and Gollum (Martin Freeman).
The Hobbit follows Bilbo, his brother, Gimli, and the rest of the dwarves and the hobbit race across Middle-Earth in search of the legendary Ring of Power.
The Lego Movie (November 15) The Lego movies are always one of our top summer movies and this one certainly qualifies.
This is a Lego film where every minute of every day counts.
We’re not talking about a simple building set here, as the film follows the construction of a Lego set and the entire Lego universe, from the very beginning, is constructed from Lego.
The characters are built to play Lego’s most famous creatures and there’s a Lego theme to every scene.
The first Lego movie has been nominated for three Academy Awards and the cast is so diverse that there are many different ethnicities and races in this movie.
The Jungle Book (December 12) The second film in the series is a story about a group of kids, the Jungle Book, who are transported into a world of animals that look like their own.
In this movie, the kids have to save their friends from an evil, jungle-based villain.
The LEGO Movie 2: Build It (December 13) We love this movie and it will be so much fun watching it again in 2019, even if it’s just for a few days at a time.
The kids are in trouble again, this time when the evil villain is threatening to destroy the world.
This time, the evil wizard is a boy named Luke Skywalker (voiced by Adam Driver), who just happens to be a member of a special construction group known as the Brickbots.
The Brickbots are building their own castle that is the ultimate fortress to protect the planet from the evil evil.
The movie takes place about 80 years after the first movie, when Luke Skywalker has been promoted to the rank of Jedi Knight.
A Bigger Splash (December 14) This is the movie that really took us by surprise and it’s also one of the top movies of the summer.
The water has come back to the coast and the kids are getting really into swimming.
The only problem?
The kids’ teacher, Debbie (Ruth Wilson), is not the nicest person in the world and she doesn’t want to teach the kids to swim.
But the water just doesn’t like Debbie, so Debbie decides to teach them to swim with a friend of hers (Mia Wasikowska) who is also a great swimmer.
The two girls are able to do it and the movie has a lot of heart and charm.
The Incredibles 2 (December 16) The Inc. franchise has never really been a movie franchise that resonates with audiences.
That changed when the third film in this series came out and it had all the promise of a Pixar movie.
But it was even more of a disappointment than the first film, in which a family of superheroes was a staple of the plot.
This one is the sequel to the first two films, with the heroines, the Incrediks, finding a family, a school and a dinosaur in the same year.
It also has a cameo from Kevin Costner as the villain, the Muppet Man.
The Incredible Hulk (December 17) Marvel Studios was never the
