      Lol it appears that Hollywood has written off August as a bankable month. Maybe it’ll swing the opposite way next year!

  2. Whoa! These all sound pretty bad. Thanks for the heads up! 🙂

  3. Hi moviebabble. Not films I would watch. Many thanks for liking “Crowded Roads! Before Him! Bunkum! and So Close!” Be Safe and Well. TheFoureyedPoet.

    This is a great post and I love your comments on the Emoji. Let’s just pretend that terrible movie never happened! Hopefully studios will learn from its mistakes.

    I disagree on Valerian. Though the lead performances weren’t strong, unlike most, I didn’t find them terrible, though Dane DeHaan was terrible casting. But as epic science fiction, this was way more original and fun than Guardian’s of the Galaxy 2. GOTG2 was a good sequel to a great film, whereas Valerian actually tried for greatness, and achieved it in visuals and original science fiction plot. Interesting that you mention it went south for you when Rhianna appeared. I felt she was the weak link as far as acting, though Besson had fun with her visually.

      I wouldn’t say the performances were bad, but it was more of a casting issue like you mentioned. I love Dane DeHaan and like Cara Delevingne, but they just didn’t work as a romantic pair.

    Where did Captain Underpants rate?

    This is where we disagree a little. As I’ve already said, I liked Valerian, and though Wish Upon does have it’s flaws, I thought it was entertaining enough. And as for the emoji movie, I understand that there are a lot of people who genuinely can’t stand the movie, such as yourself, and that’s fine, but I feel like it’s getting a bad rap, simply because it’s the emoji movie. A lot of people, it feels, seemed to be pre-determined to hate this movie, so nothing was going to change their mind, and a lot of them hate on it because it’s the thing to do on the internet. I’m not saying the Emoji Movie is great, but I didn’t feel it was as awful as a lot of people are saying. For me, the movie was just okay… a little “meh” if it were.

    Which is basically what my “worst” films of July are – just meh. They aren’t terrible films, and there are good things about each of them, but in the end, they just didn’t click with me. #3) The Emoji Movie; #2) Atomic Blonde – one terrific action sequence can’t save the film from being more style over substance; and #1) The Beguiled – a film with some terrific performances, but not much of a point and a little bland.

    Anyone want to disagree? I’m sure there are plenty! : )

    • Nick Kush says:

      I’m fairly certain that The Beguiled had a limited release in June, but I agree with your sentiment! I was very underwhelmed by that one.

    Never saw Wishing Upon, but I heard it was bad. As for the other two films, I agree with you.

    • Nick Kush says:

      Wish Upon is sooooo funny. I think it was one of the best theater experiences I’ve had this year lol
