Times have changed, but nothing will ever beat taking in a movie for the first time while the temperature is high. And this summer, well, let’s just say there’s something for everyone. Here’s the ultimate AUGUST MUST-SEE MOVIES. Hold onto summer just a little bit longer…

10. The Battered Bastards of Baseball


Starring: Kurt Russell and His Dad

Baseball, Bonanza Bing and batboys… oh my! An inspirational story about independent spirit made independently. Plus, it’s set in Portland, which, I believe, is still cool to like.

The tagline is “The one team that had a pair.” I think that’s a reference to something! Maybe balls. Must see.

9. Terminator 2: Judgment Day


Starring: A robot

It’s rare that a sequel outshines its predecessor, but summer is just the time to test out that theory! And this one’s a doozy. It’s got action, a cyborg and a teenage son. So head to theaters and catch it while it’s hot!

8. Hairspray


Starring: John Travolta and a Wig

This movie is an inspiration, and we’ve all been waiting for a John Travolta comeback. This is it! We are big, blond and beautiful. Welcome to the 60s.

7. Orange is the New Black: Season 2


Starring: A bunch of girls; some are not white

Finally, a reason to leave our bed! I don’t want to give anything away, but let me just say this: the title is a reference to prison uniforms. This movie is about prison. It’s pretty long; it’s The Ring cycle of summer movies. Buuut must see.

6. The Ocean and Your Skin in the Sun


Starring: Sun, You, Cancer

I love a good double feature. This summer, you can’t help but watch the ocean, quickly followed by your skin in the sun. It glistens, it glows… it’s perched for a sequel.

5. Korean War Veterans Memorial Highway


Introducing: The Open Road!

This one took me a while to get into, honestly. Slow to start, but once you get into it, it’s a smooth ride with lots of layers. Must see.

4. Inside of a Starbucks 


Strong characters, moving soundtrack. It’s like a movie version of Seinfeld. MUST-SEE.

3. Bicycle 


See. Must. See.

2. Dirty Cars


This is a rip-off of Korean War Veterans Memorial Highway, but it’s GOOD. Only playing in select theaters. MUST SEE!!!!

1. Cheetos


The “other” orange food. Perfect from start to finish. MuuUSTSeEEEeeE!!!!!
