My Summer Movie Picks
Who doesn’t love a good movie? I have my Top 5 Summer Movie Picks and I am pretty sure your favorites too. Whether it is a comedy, action, sci-fi or a thriller, you’ve got a go-to movie list you never tire of watching over and over again. And here’s a little something you many not know, the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan with unlimited talk, text, and data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE data is the ticket for lots of movie watching family nights, keep reading for details. At my local Walmart I was able to pick up the Cool Pad Rogue. This sleek Android-powdered cell phone offers complete 4G LTE network connectivity with rock solid talking, texting, and ample data connectivity. And at only $19.88 (Rollback from $39.83) it is a great value, in addition, when paired with the Walmart Family Mobile Starter Kit I had my new phone activated in no time. But, here’s the good part, right now you also get a free movie on VUDU. This means, once a month you get to enjoy an additional family movie night with a FREE MOVIE viewed on our Smart T.V. or other compatible device. Can someone say, “Hot-buttered popcorn?!”
Starter Kit details include:
- $19.88 (Rollback from $25)
- Start your service on ANY plan today for just $19.88
- The Family Mobile bills you later, you only have to pay $19.88 when you sign up
I had my new phone activated in no time. And the free movie on VUDU (new release rental $7 value) every month per line for $49.88, gives you the movies you love for the low low of $free.99, in hipster parlance that translates to zero, zilch and nada.
And just because you didn’t ask I am going to share my Top 5 Summer Movie Picks. And also, just because I am NOT your typical guy (whatever that means) my top movie selections are not surprisingly steeped in sports, sports or sports. You’ve been warned! Alright, here we go.
Number 5 is the Ridley Scott-directed film, Gladiator. This epic period film is set in Rome and contains the makings of an above par action film: there’s betrayal, fighting, and revenge. And did I mention there’s fighting? Russel Crowe puts in a solid performance at playing Maximus. He’s stripped of his honor and left for dead. If you like films set in ancient Rome with a good revenge plot this one is for you.
Number 4 is the Alice Walker film adaptation (directed by Steven Spielberg) of her novel The Color Purple. This film is set in the post-reconstruction south and features great performances from Whoopi Goldberg and Danny Glover. As Celie (Whoopi Goldberg), she lives a life of incredible hardship and both physical and mental abuse. Eventually she perverseness and is reunited with her long lost sister. It’s a tear-jerker.
Number 3 is one of those films I keep returning to time and time again. Each time I watch Fight Club I discover something new. In my humble opinion one of best performances from both Ken Norton and Mr. Brad Pitt. It’s a quirky film exploring the what it means to find worth and value in materialism and social normalcy.
Number 2 and 1 is a cheat because I’ve chosen the Lord of Rings Trilogy, which is really three films but whateva’. Many moons, suns, and stars ago I read the J.R.R. Tolkien books and so these Peter Jackson directed films adapted from the books hold a special place in the kid-at-heart heart that beats strongly inside my grown up man chest. And these are just my favorites, the wife and our young boys love them too. I mean there are hobbits, dwarves, elves, and wizards! Plus magic rings, adventure aplenty and Smog! These films speak of the value of friends who will see it through with you to the very end (Yay Sam!). All of my favorite movie picks are available on Vudu. For more details visit your local Walmart. Also, what are your favorite summer time movie favorites? And what summer movies you are excited about?
