Among the innumerable benefits of updating your television package to include a greater range of shows and programming is the fact that your family viewing experiences will be greatly improved. You are not far from reaching this point. With a simple visit to a website such as Satellite TV Family or DirecTV, you can be just a few quick steps away from setting up one of the premiere programming packages offered by such companies. One example of the ways in which your television experience will improve can be seen in the number of new movies that you will have access to. Expansive cable packages are bringing movies from the big screen to your living room faster than ever. Here are a few words on some of the hottest movies of the summer, which you and your family could soon be enjoying right at home.
Undoubtedly, the “biggest” movie of the 2011 summer was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II. While each and every book and movie release of the Harry Potter franchise brought with it a certain amount of intrigue and anticipation, this film seemed to bring a bit extra, as it was, finally, the last piece of J.K. Rowling’s world phenomenon story. Just as fans of the franchise expected, the movie did not disappoint, as it seamlessly managed the difficult task of translating Rowling’s vivid and expansive final pages to the screen. Harry Potter fans, and indeed even average moviegoers, had trouble keeping their eyes dry throughout this fantastic summer hit.
On the opposite end of the spectrum in terms of hype and box office noise was the surprising feel-good movie of the summer, Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris. This film crept almost unnoticed from smaller, lower-budget theaters into the main stream, as more and more people realized and became captivated by its undeniable charm. The film features Owen Wilson in a still-goofy but more serious than usual role as a young American writer obsessed with the history and majesty of Paris, and the city’s role in 20th century arts. Wilson’s character ends up finding a way to spend late evenings in 1920’s Paris alongside his literary idols, which changes his life with regard to everything from his marriage to his writing. Ultimately, the film is almost shockingly charming, and is a fresh break from the 3D action movies and superhero sequels dominating Hollywood these days.
These are just a couple of examples of some of the freshest and best movies from this summer. In the past, it would be perhaps six months before these movies were available to watch again in the living room. However, with the right home entertainment network, you can now access new movies more quickly than ever, which means you could be enjoying these movies in the near future.
