Summer is just a few weeks away.  With it comes the summer movies that inspires to be blockbusters.  The films, the studios expect everyone to go see in troves during their summer break.  Which ones are you anticipating most?

Among the films listed below I would have say that Man of Steel would be my first choice, followed by in no particular order, Monsters University, Despicable Me 2, The Wolverine and White House Down.  If you can't tell, I have a preference toward cute animations and super hero movies.  But any of the nineteen movies below I wouldn't mind seeing.  The movie list is not all inclusive of what's coming out this summer, but a really impressive list nonetheless!
