JUNE Viewing Recap + Movie of the Month

June2015Recap

I was contemplating about taking a blogging break as I’ve mentioned here that I’m hoping to start writing my first script [so yes I’ve decided that’s the format instead of a novel]. But I think I’d miss it too much so I’ll probably just blog less and will also reduce my time visiting people’s blogs.

Needless to say, I didn’t really have much time for movie watching either this month. I only went to four press screenings: SPY, Jurassic World, Me and Earl and The Dying Girl and Self/less. There were two scheduled screenings for Magic Mike XXL, but honestly I can’t be more disinterested in seeing that flick if I tried. Was planning on seeing Terminator Genisys but decided against it due to threat of severe weather. That movie just isn’t worth getting hail damage on my car. I am looking forward to seeing Southpaw [Jake Gyllenhall looks positively Oscar worthy just from the trailer alone!] and MI5: Rogue Nation. Oh I also signed up for Ant Man too, though I’m kind of meh about Marvel stuff these days.

Reviews

I’ve been feeling burnt out lately in review writing, so there are a slew of stuff I saw I haven’t got a chance to review yet. Interestingly enough, this weekend had been quite a prolific one as I actually did finish three reviews in a matter of 48 hours! We’ll see how long that’ll last, but so long as the passion is there, I’m gonna ride it until it’s gone 😀 Here are some that’ve been posted already:

Entourage (2015)

SPY (2015)

Jurassic World (2015)

A Coffee in Berlin (2014)

P.K. (2014)

Movie of the Month

InsideOut_poster

It’s an easy pick this month. Inside Out is truly one of Pixar’s best, entertaining as well as heartwarming and insightful. Spy Me and Earl and the Dying Girl are both VERY good though, those would make my top 3 of the month.


So that’s my June recap. What’s YOUR fave movie(s) you saw this month?
