The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters Ever
Over a month ago, perhaps feeling daunted by the seemingly endless summer season stretching out in front of us and the sheer volume of popcorn we were going to have to eat, we brought you our list of The 20 Worst Summer Blockbusters Of All Time. But now that we’re in the thick of it, and we’ve had a few more decent big titles open (“22 Jump Street,” “Edge of Tomorrow” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” all had their charms) we’re turning that frown upside down, and bringing you our rundown of the 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of all time. But that “hooray for everything!” vibe is a little misleading. As we’ve proven to ourselves so many times before, stable, long-term professional relationships of mutual respect and admiration tend not to be shaken by debates over whether “Jonah Hex” is empirically worse than “Battlefield Earth,” but are much more likely likely to be rocked to their very foundations by arguments over whether X treasured childhood classic is better than Y worldwide box-office hit. Let’s have a moment’s silence for the old friendships this list has torn asunder.

Jaws
We are just under two weeks away from the new “Godzilla” movie coming out in theaters worldwide and, despite being released in the same month as “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” this seems to be the movie people are most excited about. A big reason for that has been the film’s buzzworthy trailers. But, as you might expect, it was only a matter of time before someone on the Internet made some sort of “Godzilla” parody. One fan, in particular, had the nifty idea of mashing up sounds from the “Godzilla” trailer with images from the blockbuster classic “Jaws”—and the results are pretty entertaining.

On the off chance you haven't literally tripped over a pumpkin in the last five minutes, we're here to remind you that tonight we celebrate the single greatest excuse ever invented to get trashed and wear skimpy clothing: Halloween. But of course, in addition to its status for some as a nationwide night of consequence-free hedonistic abandon, for others, Halloween has a deeper, more rarefied spiritual function: as a time to discover the limits of rationality; to test the boundaries of your relationship with the unknown and unknowable; in short, to scare yourself shitless.

Largely credited with kicking off the idea of the seasonal blockbuster and still one of the most iconic summer cinematic thrill-rides of all time, even as it's closing in on 40 years since it was first released, Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" has raised the pulse of more than one generation of movie fan. And it speaks to the ongoing power of the movie that last month at the Cannes Film Festival, many critics carved out time in their already packed schedule to try and make outdoor screening of the movie, presented by Richard Dreyfuss.

You know what’s a fun task? Trying to convince anyone that Steven Spielberg’s 1975 “Jaws” is not an American classic and a nearly flawless film. It’s kind of impossible, and if you were to somehow take this position, you would either be painfully foolhardy, Armond White, or both.
