The Most Highly Anticipated Summer 2019 Movies
Start writing a post

Pretty much everyone likes movies, and for many, summer is the time of year where most of the movies that they want to see are released. With the release of "Avengers: Endgame" last month, the summer movie season is in full swing, for better and for worse. Now, most summer movie lists found online simply outline the most highly anticipated movies of the summer, and are probably influenced by which movies the article's author most wants to see. This is not that list. The only movie that I am honestly, legitimately excited for this summer is Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," and I guess, to a much lesser extent, "Spider-Man: Far From Home." Yep, that's about it. Now that I have covered the movies I am excited for, here is a list of movies coming out this summer that I am not excited for at all whatsoever.

1. "Aladdin"

Director Guy Ritchie's take on the classic Disney tale will add one more entry to Disney's list of unnecessary live-action remakes. My prediction: it won't be bad, but it probably won't be that good, and thus, will be largely unnecessary.

2. "Godzilla: King of the Monsters"

Even though the 2014 Godzilla movie that preceded this one was pretty decent, my hopes for this new movie are pretty low. It appears to have an almost entirely new cast, which generally never goes well. There will be monsters, there will be fighting, and... yeah, that's probably about it.

3. "Dark Phoenix"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRPqdconwO8

We'll see about this one. Even though many films in the X-Men series are fantastic, 2016's "X-Men: Apocalypse" was simply awful. So, this new one has some making up to do. Will it return to the elements that made the earlier films so good, or will it succumb to Apocalypse's terrible qualities? I suppose we shall find out soon.

4. "The Secret Life of Pets 2"

I never had any interest in seeing the first "Secret Life of Pets" and now that the second one is coming out, I have decided that I do not want to see that one either.

5. "Men in Black: International"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXP0rUi9U7U

Some franchises just need to stop. "Men in Black" is one of them. This fourth film in the series has a new cast including Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, and by the looks of the trailer, will make a convincing argument for why "Men in Black 3" should have been the last film in the franchise.

6. "Child's Play"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5l6tdZook9A

The classic horror series will return for another remake that will probably prove unnecessary. Hopefully Chucky the Doll's last murder victim will be the "Child's Play" franchise, making this the last movie in it.

7. "Toy Story 4"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDIUNqfshjk

When it comes to franchises that need to end, here is another great example. I don't know what on earth is going on in the trailer for "Toy Story 4" or who the hell "Forky" is, but I do know that these movies need to stop.

8. "Annabelle Comes Home"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3JJgH1lZyE&app=desktop

If "Child's Play" still does not satisfy your thirst for movies about murderous dolls, then hopefully this new Annabelle movie will suffice. I wonder how long it will take for a Chucky/Annabelle crossover movie. I'm sure they would make quite the duo.

9. "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-cl9_jPxIk

The trailer for this Fast & Furious spin-off literally makes me want to cringe. But, at least it's not trying to be something that it's not. It is a loud, obnoxious movie about Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham smashing things. It does not appeal to me, but it might be enough for some fans.

Not that you should really care that much about what movies I do or do not want to see, but there you have it. There is the list unless I was lying and I actually do want to see most of these, in which case you definitely just wasted all of your time reading this article. But, I won't tell you whether or not this is the case. So, I guess you will never know whether or not this was a huge waste of time.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

It will be okay, eventually.

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
