Girls on Pop – Episode 6: MIA: Summer Movie Season

Logan & Veronica 4 Ever!
Logan & Veronica 4 Ever!

For the last few decades, summer movie season promised at least a dozen movies of varying degrees of awesome and featuring ridiculous plots, loads of action and maybe even a couple of end-of-the-world scenarios but this summer is proving to be a huge disappointment. Where have the summer movies gone?

This week Sarah (@iBrockely) and I (@themarina) talk Finding Dory, delve into the discussion of the missing summer movies and get a little deep with the current culture of what Marina dubs “Peter Pan Syndrome.”

SPOILER WARNING! We get spoilery with the Now You See Me 2 discussion but nobody cared about that movie and frankly, neither should you. Still, if you plan on seeing it down the road and don’t want to be spoiled on the details, you might want to skip ahead a few minutes once that discussion starts. It’s pretty short.
