Pop Cultured Summer 2015 – August

Summer is upon us! Which means its that special time of year where a lot of things happen, but also don’t happen. The movie blockbusters are coming in at full force, while TV takes it easy (sorta). There will also be plenty of concerts and events to fill up those wonderful summer days and nights. So here are some of the things I’m looking forward to!


After a jam-packed July (so much so that I didn’t have a chance to go see ANY movies I wanted to see), August slows down considerably. Once I actually get around to seeing my July (and honestly, some of the June movies), the one movie coming out this month I want to see is Fantastic 4 (Aug. 7). I know a lot of people have their doubts about it and I’m still not entirely sure about it, but I’m trying to be optimistic! Plus, how could I say no to this cast? Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, and Jaime Bell! That’s an awesome young cast and I want the best for them.

I’ve been spending my summer catching up on shows I hadn’t gotten around to watching. Among those shows was Playing House (Aug. 4), which is going into its second season. If you haven’t seen the show, it’s a comedy about two childhood best friends, who now face a new challenge in their lives. In season 1, with Maggie pregnant and her marriage ending, Emma decides to uproot her entire life and move back to their hometown to help Maggie. Season 2 will see more of the awesome friendship and what happens now that Maggie and Emma are taking care of baby Charlotte.

And what’s summer without concerts? Some of my One Tree Hill faves, Tyler Hilton and Kate Voegele, are taking their joint European tour to Canada for a few dates! They’ll be hitting Toronto on August 24th, and I’m just SO excited about it!
