This month was the BIGGEST BLOCKBUSTER EVER edition. We pulled 3 of the top summer blockbusters of all time. BIG NAMES, BIG BUDGET, BIG EFFECTS- movies that served as the blueprint for the movies we still flock to theaters to see today. All 3 movies were helmed by director Steven Spielberg and have made their indelible mark on our popular culture.

OUR FAVORITE ALIEN FRIEND…

Kayla: My favorite scene was when the Chief overcame his fear of the water.
Marge: My favorite scene was when Quint dies because his arrogance has caught up with karma.
Emma: When Hooper tried to convince the mayor to close . the beaches because it shows you that the good guys don’t always wn and that sometimes good chocies take convincing,
Would you recommend this to a friend? Why or why not?
Madison: Yes! Of Course, it is a classic and the direction and acting is totally on point! It is a timeless movie too because people will always be kind of scared of sharks!
