Summer 2016 Movie Bucket List

posted in: entertainment, movie, tv | 1

One of our favorite activities is to head to the movie theater. This summer, we’re hoping to head to the local drive-in theater and catch a movie or two. My level of excitement is listed on a scale of 1 to 5 based on the description and trailer. 

The summer of 2015 had some GREAT movies! Some of my favorites are Jurassic World, Ant-Man, and Tomorrowland.
