Sci-Fi: Everyone loves a little sci-fi here and there and this year is the most epic year for a Sci-Fi marathon that includes all of the Star Wars movies! With Star Wars The Force Awakens coming out this Fall, it’s the best time to have a fun summer movie marathon with your friends! You have to make sure you watch them in the order they were made. 4-6, then 1-3 – at least that is how a true Geek will watch it!
Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope
Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars Episode 6: The Return Of The Jedi
Get the entire trilogy together on Blu-Ray/DVD on Amazon for $34.96
Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace
Star Wars Episode 2: Attack Of The Clones
Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge Of The Sith
Grab the trilogy on Blu-Ray/DVD on Amazon, also for $34.96
Suspense: One of those fun classic movies that every kids watches is Jurassic Park. With the release of the new Jurassic World in June this year it is a great one to watch together. It was one of the best movies of it’s time with new computer graphics, and it is tons of fun to see how much has improved since then. Mostly though, it’s totally cool watching all the real animatronic dinosaurs!
Get them all in one digitally remastered, Blu-Ray + Digital Copy collection for $38.99

Horror: This is only good for those who aren’t afraid of scary movies. With the recent remake of the classic horror movie Poltergeist you’ll find people screaming and hiding their eyes in theaters everywhere. These are some of my favorite horror movies, but they can be seriously spooky, so if you are a scaredy cat like me – you may want to avoid them or at least not watch them right before bedtime.
The first one is sold alone for about $9 on DVD or $14 on Blu-Ray. Grab II and III together on Blu-Ray for just $13.39
Movie marathons are tons of fun to have with your friends in the summer! Plan a date, cue up the movies and pop the popcorn. All of these movies are rated PG-13 or lower so your parents are sure to be okay with you watching them. Since all are coming to theaters this year, you can set up a great movie day that ends in a special night out to see the latest release!

I love all 3 of these series and I cannot wait to see the new ones. My favorite series are Lord of the Rings, Twilight and Harry Potter.
I would definitely choose Jurassic Park but the kids like Star Wars best.

What a great choice of movies! My son is not quite a teen, yet, but I know other moms will appreciate your teen summer movies marathon post and info!
Great list! I have seen them all but Poltergeist. We will probably have a Star Wars marathon sometime this summer and will definitely watch the Jurassic Park trilogy before the new movie comes out.
