Every film I saw in July and August 2019- two month summer double bash

So, you were probably wondering where my July film list was. Here it is. At the end of August. Due to multiple issues, including holidays, a university application and losing track of time in this endless summer, I decided to skip July and have a big film extravaganza at the end of August, with the idea that I would have seen countless films to discuss. A noble plan in theory, but due to those aforementioned issues plus other pastimes such as reading and League of Legends my combined film total for two whole months is not quite as much as perhaps you may think. Regardless, here are the films I saw this month, and from next month we should be getting some interesting ones as that’s when I start Film Studies at university.

Spider-Man: Far From Home review

July will be Ben’s Month of Reviews. Whilst I am currently on holiday (in York en route to Edinburgh to be precise), thanks to the magic of the Internet I am still able to write a whole bunch of reviews for recent fandom properties I’ve seen recently. First up, the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe film, Spider-Man: Far From Home, the second solo Tom Holland film and a film that features the big screen debut of one of Marvel’s coolest villains, Mysterio. How does it stack up? One of the best sequel’s Marvel’s ever done.

No I refuse to use the actual US poster because that is duller than dishwater.

Every film I saw in June 2019

At last, summer is here. I’ve spent most of this month relishing in the freedom I now have following my exams, which means a lot of films were burnt through. This is in part to make up for next month, which will be lacking in the film front due to my long holiday coming up. With that said, how did I mark the halfway point of the year? Let’s find out.

Post-Endgame Marvel Cinematic Universe speculation: Where will Phase 4 go?

It’s been a few months since the Infinity Saga came to an end with Endgame. Whilst it isn’t the end of Marvel Studios, it is the end of what we know so far and the film has set up lots of exciting possible futures for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With the Fox acquisition and other heroes being established, I’m going to guess where Marvel may take their universe now that the primary heroes are dead. And with Far From Home just around the corner, let’s look to the future of Marvel. Unlike my Endgame review this will be spoiler filled as I think enough time has passed now for everyone to have seen Endgame. With that said, let’s look to the future. For this list, I will be looking at properties that either already exist in the MCU or have been announced/heavily speculated to happen-

What I’m looking forward to in 2019

Another year done and dusted- and what a year it’s been for nerdom. A new Doctor arrived, Thanos killed half the universe (SPOILER ALERT for the three people who don’t know), the Skeleton Detective got political and del Toro won his Oscar. 2019 promises to be huge, so without further ado it’s time to reveal what I am looking forward this year in terms of films, television shows and books. We are returning to Hawkins, visiting our favourite drunk reality jumping cynical genius once again, travelling to a galaxy far far away and the most underrated comic book hero of all time is getting a new coat of red. 2019 is going to be huge.

Whilst the Doctor takes yet another hiatus for no reason other than the fact that the BBC cannot schedule their own programmes correctly let’s see what else the year has to offer.
