Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts honed his chops with short films and Funny or Die comedy videos, before taking his debut feature, The Kings of Summer to Sundance. The film made him a festival darling with its sun-kissed, coming-of-age comedy: three boys leave their families behind and build a house in the woods. (He calls it, lovingly, “the dumbest Terrence Malick movie ever made.”) Since the film is all about the sense of freedom the summer evokes, so Jordan offers up a few other things that evoke that seasonal sensation.
– Thin Lizzie, “Jailbreak”
– Bad Boys II
– The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
