The summer sun is bringing the heat, and sometimes it can be a little too much. Where better to find sweet release than in the air-conditioned escape of a dark movie theater?

Between Godzilla, Transformers: Age of Extinction and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, this year is stacked with action-packed, big-money movies. Whether they’re about space wars or gigantic robots, a summer blockbuster needs destruction. The more havoc you can wreak, some say, the better.
