Northwood favorites: new summer films
The year of 2018 marked the summer of popular movies. Voted by Northwood’s very own students, here are the most loved movies of this summer.
Crazy Rich Asians:
When Rachel Chu travels to Singapore with her boyfriend, Nick Young, to meet his family, she is introduced to a whole new lifestyle. From a disapproving mother to jealous socialites, “Crazy Rich Asians” shows that being unbelievably wealthy may not always be as glamorous and exciting as most people think. Incredibles 2:
After the long-awaited sequel to the original “The Incredibles”, there’s a different character in the spotlight—Elastigirl! With his wife off on a new, top-secret job, Bob is left behind to deal with the kids and figure out a way to live a “normal” life. Filled with loads of action, suspense and humor, “Incredibles 2” is definitely one of the few movies that delivers as much adventure and joy as the original.
Ant-Man and the Wasp:
Scott Lang, the new Ant-Man, must juggle the roles of father and superhero. With elevated action, humor and heartwarming stories of the past, Lang finds himself teaming up with the Wasp, a female superhero, to fight against a dangerous new enemy.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again:
“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” continues the story of a young Donna, who travels across Europe and makes many new friends, including Sam, the man who wins and breaks her heart. Now, in the present, Donna’s daughter Sophie dreams of remaking a taverna while reuniting her mother with her old friends—and boyfriend. Once again featuring well-loved music by ABBA, fun dance moves and upbeat energy, this movie is the original story to a classic, cherished movie.
When nuclear weapons go missing, Ethan Hunt and the Impossible Missions Force (IMF) must team up with August Walker, a CIA assassin, and race against time to prevent the weapons from falling into the hands of a terrorist group. With suspenseful scenes like getting struck by lightning, a motorcycle chase and literally jumping off the side of a building, “Mission Impossible—Fallout” never fails to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
