If you’re like most red-blooded, explosion-lovin’ American men, you’ll probably see at least one movie this summer.

Even if you’re married with kids. A man’s gotta get out, y’know?

We y’know. That’s why we’ve compiled a Summer Movie Cheat Sheet, your data-fueled guide to getting happily seated at the theater this season.

What we provide: succinct synopsis of each film, a glowing comparison to a film you already admire and a similar summer film to avoid.

In other words: you should see Let’s Be Cops, but avoid 22 Jump Street.

Some of our other suggestions:

  • Philip Seymour Hoffman’s last great work

  • A film that took 12 years to make (and maybe a few months longer to win an Oscar)

  • And an indie sci-fi flick that’ll blow your mind a la 2001 and The Matrix

So read up.

Because this summer, the odds are in your favor.
