DVD Recommendations for the 2009 Summer

Summer is just beginning — and with it, the slew of summer blockbusters, flops, and everything in between. However, if you don’t want to pan out $10 to go to the theater, there are still movies that you can order from Netflicks or get at the video store. Here are just a few summer recommendations.


The Action: “Die Hard”

New York cop John McClane goes against the odds to rescue a group of people held hostage by terrorist in an LA office building.

Explosions, fights, nonstop action and a Bruce Willis that’s 24 years younger—what else do you need for a great action film? It’s the kind of film that when you watch it the first time, you’re on the edge of your seat—after that you’re still cheering for Willis’s character. What’s more, the film provides you with a few laughs as well. This popcorn film is just what you need for those boring nights.


The Comedy: “Without a Paddle”

Three friends take a hilarious misadventure down the river in search of famed airliner hijacker D.B. Cooper missing $194,200.

I’m somewhat picky in my comedy, but I can say I enjoyed this. It’s entertaining and does require too much thinking, and if you’re just looking for a good laugh sometime during the summer, this fits the bill.


The Romance: “The Notebook”

In a modern-day nursing home, an elderly man named Duke reads a love story from his notebook to a female fellow patient, about two young people who met one summer, were separated, and eventually come back together again.

Call it sappy, but most females can’t resist a good love story. The tale of Noah and Allie might have been told a thousand times over a number of different ways, but it doesn’t stop the emotion you get from watching it. You’ll laugh, cry, and sigh. It’s a great movie to for ladies to watch with their girlfriends.


The Classic: “The Princess Bride”

A grandfather reads a classic fairy tale—complete with “fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chase, escapes, true love, and miracles”—to his ill grandson.

One of my all time favorite movies, this highlighted movie of the eighties can be enjoyed by both sexes. Men will like the fighting and intrigue and women will sigh over the love story. It’s the perfect movie for those nostalgic moments when you want a little of everything.

The TV Show: “Heroes”

Normal people find out they have extraordinary abilities. DC Comics meets NBC drama.

If you’ve never seen it before, summer is a great time to start. That way you can watch as many episodes as you want at your convenience (in my experience and the experience of people I know, once you start watching, you have a hard time stopping) —or if you have a responsibilities, it’s like watching a summer superhero flick all through the summer.


Have fun watching!
