Paige Tyler | My Top 3 Favorite Summer Blockbuster Movies
June 9, 2016
Hubby (who is my writing partner) and I spend a lot of our time writing,
especially on the weekends. In fact, we probably get about 80 percent of our
actual writing done on the weekends. So we do everything we can to protect that
time for writing. All that being said, sometimes you just have to get off the
couch and out of the house every now and then just to keep from going crazy. One
of the things we love to do when we go out is catch a movie. And of course,
summer is absolutely the best time to do this with all the big summer releases
hitting the theaters literally one weekend after the next.
So for this blog post, I dug through the Coming Soon pages and found three big
summer blockbusters that are sure to drag hubby and me away from our laptops and
down to the theater.
Warcraft. Okay, I have
to admit, neither hubby nor I play WOW, but we did a bit of research for it when
we were writing the third SWAT Book, IN THE COMPANY OF WOLVES.
You know the part where the hero Becker talks about loving the game and naming
all his fish after female characters in the WOW game? (Pretty sure heâ€™s going to
be dragging his mate and the Pack to see this movie too!). Well, all that
research got us psyched to see the movie. We absolutely love paranormal and
fantasy stuff anyway, so this movie looks right up our alley. And Iâ€™m glad that
it seems like theyâ€™ve taken the source material seriously instead of making a
joke out of all of it like so many other movies based off video games have done.
The CGI for the orcs looks amazing, especially the way they were able to make
the males all big and powerful looking, yet create women who look very feminine
even though they have tusks that are really crazy. And did you see that little
baby orc in the trailer? He is just cute as a button!
Teenage Mutant Ninja
Turtles â€“ Out of the Shadows. First off, I love the TMNTs. I have
since the cartoon came out in the 80â€™s. Some people thought the first movie in
this new run at the series was goofy, but I totally loved it and Iâ€™m not
embarrassed to admit it. I even think I have a thing for Leonardo, whom I can
definitely see as the alpha hero type. Maybe I can get the Turtles to do a
crossover with the SWAT Wolf Pack? That would be fun!
Tarzan. Now hereâ€™s a silly question. Who wouldnâ€™t want to race to
the theaters to see an attractive, well-built man run around the jungles in
nothing but a loin cloth? Okay, thatâ€™s not why hubby is eager to see it, but I
am! Hubby read the books as a kid and is way more interested in the action and
CGI sequences. They do look amazing. And I canâ€™t wait to see how they integrate
Tarzan in with the animals (especially just having seen The Jungle Book). Canâ€™t
wait to hear that Tarzan yell for the first time too!
Captain America â€“ Civil
War. Okay, Iâ€™m cheating now. But I couldnâ€™t limit myself to three
movies. Iâ€™ve been keeping an eye on this Captain America movie too. Iâ€™m
definitely on Captain Americaâ€™s side in this one (sorry, but Iâ€™ve never liked
Iron Man, so Iâ€™m hoping Stark gets his butt stomped). Iâ€™m also stoked over all
the new characters theyâ€™ll be bringing into the storyline too. Black Panther

HEâ€™S FOUND THE ONEâ€¦
SWAT officer Landry Cooper is certain Everly Danu is The One. The
problem is, she has no idea what Cooper really is. And as much as he wants to
trust her, heâ€™s not sure he can share his deepest secretâ€¦
When Everlyâ€™s family discovers Cooperâ€™s a werewolf, her brothers will do
anything to keep them apartâ€”theyâ€™ll kill him if they have to. Everly is falling
hard for the ridiculously handsome SWAT officer, and sheâ€™s not about to let her
brothers tell her who she can loveâ€¦ Until Cooperâ€™s secret is exposed and she
discovers the man she thought she knew is a monster in disguise.
BUT CAN HE KEEP HER?

I very seldom go see a movie , I'd much rather read a great book staying home . The last time I went to a movie ( several years ago ) I froze ( in July it was so cold inside the theater ) and the sound was so loud . SOOOOO give me a good book to read and enjoy in the comfort of my home . Thanks for the chance to win this book , it sounds like it will be a thriller page turning book .

We will probably see WoW - though it'll probably be at home. We are on a really, really tight budget, so we'll save money and rent it via Amazon (if it comes on there). We don't even have "real" TV anymore, just Netflix and Amazon.

The good part: I'm actually going to see a movie tomorrow morning - "Norm of the North" (Yeah, well. What can I say? The TV commercials were just too cute for words!). The bad part: It's a special price, targeting kiddies newly out of school for the summer.
Oh, well. Grin and bear it!! (Sorry! Couldn't resist!!)
