5 Perfect Summer Blockbusters

Sabienna is a freelance writer, pop culture junkie and unabashed fangirl. She blames an early exposure to The X-Files and the Must See TV era of NBC for her twin life-long loves of sci-fi and sitcoms. She's not sure where her all-consuming love for all things British came from, but it led her to Doctor Who so she doesn't complain.

  • Great list and I am happy there was a shout-out to Jaws in the opening paragraph!

      Thank you! I had to give a shout-out to the original blockbuster; if not for my love of Jack Sparrow, it would have made it onto the list.

  • Such a great list Sabienna. It really put a smile on my face remember all these great movies. And you’re absolutely right, Jurassic Park continues to hold up even for today’s standards. I continue to be mesmerized by it every time we see the dinosaurs for the first time. Or maybe it just reminds me of how I felt the first time I saw it. Whatever it is, it’s one of the reasons I love movies.

    And E.T.!!! Let’s just say that even 30 years later, I still cry at the end of it every time I see it. Hell I cry while they’re riding their bikes.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Thanks, Sandie! I’m a sucker for a good blockbuster. I think when done right there is really nothing else quite like them. My niece recently watched Jurassic Park for the first time and listening to her excitement over it was so touching, I remember feeling the same way when I first saw it.
