Son of Summer Movies

More favorites from the Des Moines Public Library staff:
     Jaws.  The shark scared the whillikins out of me.  Thank goodness I live in Iowa!  But repeat viewings are due to the vivid characters. I watch it every time I come across it, and hope I don't miss the scar-off. 
     Summer of ’42.  Just drenched in summer, you can get a tan watching this thoughtful film.  Enjoy a coming-of-age story with a little grace.
     One Crazy Summer. This fun, goofy 1986 release, stars John Cusack and Demi Moore.  Guess what?  Demi plays a successful singer!  Ah, the wonders of cinema.
     Transformers.  They're big, they fight and they're made out of cars.   
     The Fast and the Furious.  Did I mention cars?  These aren't from outer space but they go really really fast.  There's no stopping this franchise or Transformers. 
     Looks like automoblies rule summer!  Especially since the shark movies just aren't what they used to be.

Jaws was the ultimate "Shark" movie. There have been many others, even one in 3D right now, but none compares to the original!
