Words: Laura Lardner, on work experience from Loreto on the Green
We all may be wishing for a glorious summer this year, but let's face the fact that it's really probably not going to happen in Ireland anyway. So instead we should enjoy the few moments of sun we have and remember there will always be the cinema to fall back to on those cold, rainy, miserable days. This summer we are lucky to have so many good movies coming out and as a young adult I'd say it's really important to take time out of our busy schedules and watch at least these four movies.
Starting with Mrs Browns Boys, which sounds like a hilarious movie. Starring Brendan O Carroll and his clan, she/he never seems to let us down during the TV episodes so hopefully the movie will be just as good and not too cheesy. If the episodes rate up to 8 stars I'd say the movie won't be too far behind anyway. (Release date: 27th June)
The Maze Runner is an adaptation from an incredible book. This futuristic sci-fi stars Dylan O'Brien and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and I would imagine the movie will be able to deliver in all aspects. It looks to be a must-see movie from the trailer and hype so far. (Release date: 24th October)
Next, The Riot Club is described as a thriller and it's really about rich kids in an extremely exclusive club in college, which can make and ruin reputations within one night. The club members get a taste of power which they ultimately abuse because they don't know their own limits. The trailer however is filled with action and is really intriguing with some brilliant young actors including Sam Claflin and Max Irons, which makes it a must see movie by me. (Release date: 19th September)
On a bit more of a sad note The Fault in our Stars is a bittersweet book, by John Green which is on its way to becoming a movie. John Green is an inspirational writer who writes for young adults about tragic times for teens. He has written many books over the years including Looking for Alaska but The Fault in our Stars is rated as his best written so I'm hoping that the movie will be just as good as the book. This film has a great cast too with the Shailene Woodley from Divergent and Ansel Elgort. (Release Date: 20th June)
