Reality’s hot summer must list

MOVIES

While everyone gushes over wanting to see “The Fault In Our Stars” (June 6), I continue to harbor a quiet, somewhat childish and mostly shameful desire to see “How To Train Your Dragon 2” (June 13). I know, I’m a 16-year-old girl, and I should know better. But the sequels these days, especially for animated movies, have gotten better. And the dragons in the first one were just so cute! — Claire Conte

I want to go to Shankweiler’s Drive-in Theater in Allentown to see “How to Train Your Dragon 2” — Stacey Keba

22 Jump Street,” the sequel to the hit comedy “21 Jump Street,” comes out June 13. “21 Jump Street” is one of the most iconic comedies of the past decade, and the sequel promises to be as laugh-out-loud funny as the first. — Elizabeth Yardley

Hopefully now that I have a car and a job, I can see all the summer movies I want. “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which came out last week, looks really good. Both “22 Jump Street” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” (July 11) are sequels I am excited for. But the movie I am anticipating the most is “Guardians of the Galaxy” (Aug. 1). Although I never read the comics it’s based on, the trailer is fantastic. Marvel’s recent superhero movies have been some of my favorites, so I am really looking forward to seeing what they can do with this. — Nick Troise

Like Nick, “Guardians of the Galaxy” is No. 1 on my summer hit list, featuring a sort of alternate universe in the Marvel franchise with five brand-new characters. These former criminals must band together to save the world in this space adventure. Marvel films have kicked some serious butt lately, especially with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” so “Guardians of the Galaxy” should be nothing short of awesome. I also can’t wait for “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (Aug. 8). Do not let the title throw you off, nor the fact that Michael Bay (a man notorious for his emphasis on special effects at the expense of plot and character development) is producing. Judging from the trailer, there might possibly be some well-placed plot elements. I’m also excited because a lot of things in the trailer remind me of the old TV show, one of my favorites when I was younger. — David Walker
