Thoughts on the Summer Movie Schedule 2014 Part Three: July

Continued from Part One - May and Part Two - June

What will July bring us?

As with the last posts, the titles will link to the movie's IMDb page for more info

Opening Today:



Deliver Us From Evil

A cop/exorcism movie, because those two genres have been screaming out for a mash-up.

Earth to Echo

I'm a little intrigued.  I like the ET feel this has going for it, but I really wish that it weren't a "discovered footage" film.  Those are starting to get on my nerves.  Blair Witch Project was interesting, but it really shouldn't have started such a trend.


Melissa McCarthy causing more trouble on the big screen.



Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

A prequel sequel!  Hopes are raised after the first film.


I think it is a little strange that this film is getting a summer release date, as Richard Linklater (Before Sunset, Waking Life) movies are not your typical summer movie fare.  However, I am a big Linklater fan and am looking forward to this film.



Wish I Was Here

Zach Braff returns to writing and directing which brought us Garden State.  This might be the film I'm second most excited for this summer.

Sex Tape

Jason Segal and Cameron Diaz reteam with the director of Bad Teacher.  What might make this a little better is the script from Segal and Stollar, who also brought us Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Muppets (this is probably closer to the former...)

The Purge: Anarchy

I haven't seen the first one, so...

Planes: Fire and Rescue

The fourth (4th!) film from the Cars universe and we still are waiting on Incredibles 2.  (Thankfully, Incredibles 2 is actually, finally coming!  Now that will be worth seeing.  This?  Not so much).

I Origins

From the director of Another Earth, an interesting film a few years ago, a philosophical film about the soul.  It was at Sundance earlier this year.  Not sure how wide an opening this will get, but if its in your area it might be worth a look.




Luc Besson (Fifth Element, Leon the Professional) brings us Scarlett Johansson as a super hero.  Considering that Cap 2 has proven (to me at least) that the Black Widow is the most interesting hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, if this does well, perhaps Marvel will give us a Black Widow solo film.  But it's Luc Besson.  I'm in regardless.


The Rock stars.  I'll probably see it.  It will probably suck.

The Fluffy Movie

A comedy concert film on Gabriel Iglesias.  I figure if you wanted to see this, you probably don't need me to tell you about it.

Step Up:  All In

Yeah, no.

Until Next Time, I'll try and have August up before it's actually August!
