More of the movies out in July (for folks in the US, that is)...
Pixels (July 24-USA, Aug 12-UK, Aug 13-Singapore)
Another one not in July for UK & Singapore...
This science-fiction comedy flick looks to be fresh & interesting, but I do have some concerns. Firstly, Adam Sandler - he's not the most exciting comedian in recent times, and many of his films had flopped. And while the idea of the film is creatively interesting, the trailer isn't particularly selling...even some of the jokes weren't particularly good.
But the film still looks to be fun and possibly...quite action-packed. And there's Peter Dinklage, who I always love to see in films. So, yeah, I'm not very particular about this film, but I do hope it does well and prove me wrong with my concerns.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (July 31-USA, July 30-UK, July 30-Singapore)
Did you ever hear me say, "If this film is half as good as its predecessor, then it will still be good enough"? That statement remains...because Ghost Protocol was just too good - it still is my favourite action flick in the past 5 years. It was action-packed, suspenseful yet funny throughout. Not a minute of it was dull.
Now, with a change of director, there is always doubt on how good this film can be. But the trailers so far were quite exciting. The plot of taking down an anti-IMF organization is pretty intense, and it seems to bring back the tone and the team rapport like that of Ghost Protocol. With the brilliant Tom Cruise, the funny Simon Pegg, and the cool Jeremy Renner, I have nothing but pure excitement & anticipation for this film.
Though, I wouldn't come to this film expecting it to be as good as Ghost Protocol...that may yet be the real impossible mission (pun intended).
