Movies Of 2018 - July Recapped!

July, the month of heatwaves and extortionately high electricity bills that we thought we were over now the heating was off. But on the plus side... those cinema screens are air conditioned! The listings felt a little light this month but I still managed to get more than my fair share of films in.

The First Purge ★★★★☆
After the rise of a third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America, an experiment is conducted, no laws for 12 hours on Staten Island. No one must stay during the experiment yet there is $5,000 for anyone who does.

Colour me pleasantly surprised by this one. I'd never really fancied the others, and honestly, still not bothered with them. But I wouldn't mind seeing this one again. I think it's mainly the idea of the origin story that interested me more, and it doesn't disappoint on that for me.

It showed something more than just a horror action flick. There were moments of community and loyalty, and it showed that even a bad guy can see the d…

Shark Week 🦈 Movie Marathon

With Shark Awareness day passing me by I was mortified that I'd missed my chance to have a good old fashioned shark infested movie marathon. But those sharks never let me down.

IT'S SHARK WEEK!

So with that fact, as well as The Meg and Sharknado 6 being on the horizon, it really is a great time to be alive... so that you can watch people get chomped on my our little shark buddies.

Quite honestly I'd watch anything if you put a shark in it... on that note... if any of you are aware of a musical with an actual shark in it please let me know.

I'd also quite like to see a shark movie from the shark's point of view...

"My name is Bruce. You killed my father with a chainsaw! Prepare to die!"

These aren't really reviews of the movies, rather a dissection of…

Movies Of 2018 - June Recapped!

Looking at this month I can tell that it's going to very back end heavy. But everyone like a big booty so I'm sure it's going to be fine!

I'm already calling a no show on Hereditary this month. Everything in the trailer screamed nope very loudly, and I'm going to take it as a sign. (People have since told me that it really wasn't that bad, but I've decided life is too short for that nonsense.)

Let's talk about over scheduling shall we? The end of this month is pretty jam packed with new films. Six of them to be precise. All coming out on Friday 29th. This is also the day that starts my five day weekend. Doctor's orders. Take a break. So those six films aren't so much of a problem. In fact, it's happened very handily as under normal circumstances I wouldn't have been able to see one of them if I was at my own cinema.

Bring on the movies!
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ★★★★☆
When the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Ow…
