Happy July Guys!!!

I sincerely apologize for taking this long to post this month’s guide. Despite being my birth month, July hasn’t exactly gone as planned. However, I’m back now, and to make it up to my faithful readers, I thought I’d try out a new format for our monthly Movie and TV guide.  

Please let me know in the comments if you prefer this format to the old one. And without further delay here are What Movies, Animations, and Series to Watch in July 2021 (Enjoy).

A. Netflix

1. Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness (July 8th)

Where to Watch:

Watch On Netflix (Subscription) Watch On Netflix (Subscription)

Synopsis: Based on the popular video game series, Resident Evil: Infinite darkness sees Federal agent Leon S. Kennedy team up with Claire Redfield to investigate a zombie outbreak.

Review: Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness starts strong with brilliant characters, excellent animation, and a decent zombie conspiracy in the US government. However, by the time the series gets to the heart of its story, its plot falls apart and this leads to a ridiculous and confusing ending.  

Why You Should Watch: Pays Homage to Resident Evil Four, Decent Action scenes, Good Animation.

Why You Should Skip: Overall Bad Story,  Bad Main Villain, 

2. Gunpowder Milkshake (July 14th)

Where to Watch:

Synopsis:  To protect an 8-year-old girl, a dangerous assassin reunites with her mother and her lethal associates to take down a ruthless crime syndicate and its army of henchmen.

Review: While Gunpowder Milkshake lacks a captivating story, it makes up for it with an excellent cast of actors and brutal action.

Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Carla Gugino, Michelle Yeoh, and Angela Bassett, were all in their element (especially in the film’s final act). And together they create the entertaining action-comedy that is Gunpowder Milkshake.

Why You Should Watch: Excellent Acting, Good Action Scenes, Occasionally Funny

Why You Should Skip: Poorly Executed Story

3. The Last Letter From Your Lover (July 23rd)

Where to Watch:

Synopsis:  After discovering a trove of love letters from the 1960s,  an ambitious journalist sets out to solve the mystery of a secret affair. 

4. Masters of the Universe: Revelation (July 23rd)

Where to Watch:

Synopsis:  Masters of the Universe: Revelation sees the war for Eternia begins again in what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor.

B. Disney Plus 

5. Black Widow (July 9th)

Synopsis: Black widow sees Natasha Romanoff confront the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy, and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.

Review: Was Black Widow Perfect? No. The main villain was boring, the Taskmaster storyline was a letdown, and for some reason, Marvel decided to take action scene pointers from The Fast and Furious Franchise.

But even with these issues, Black Widow was still a decent spy thriller. The movie’s opening was fantastic. And the overall story does a brilliant job of introducing several interesting characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  

Why You Should Watch: Decent Story, Strong Opening, Great Acting

Why You Should Skip: Ridiculous Action, Bad Villian Adaptation

5. Jungle Cruise  (July 30th)

Synopsis: Based on the popular Disney theme park ride, Jungle Cruise sees Dr. Lily Houghton enlists the aid of wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff to take her down the Amazon. Together, they search for an ancient tree that holds the power to heal — a discovery that will change the future of medicine.

Review: Coming soon

C. HBO Max 

6. No Sudden Moves (July 1st)

Synopsis: Set in 1954 Detroit, NO SUDDEN MOVE sees a group of small-time criminals go to steal what they think is a simple document. But when their plan goes horribly wrong, the criminals have no choice but to work together to uncover who really hired them and why.

Review: The best part of No Sudden Moves is how the movie conceals its true plot behind a racial gang war. However, the worst part, is that the movie fails to properly carry the audience through the many twists, turns, side-deals, and betrayals of its story.

Luckily, the film’s amazing cast mostly negates this issue. And so even when you’re not entirely sure what’s going on, you’ll still be invested in No Sudden Move’s compelling story.

Why You Should Watch: Excellent Acting, Compelling Story

Why You Should Skip: Difficult to Follow, Slow Burn Movie

7. Space Jam 2 (July 16th)

Synopsis: When LeBron James and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny, and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court.

Review: For me, Space Jam 2 was a decent episode of classic Looney Tunes. It was hilarious, fun, and it had all the ridiculous moments you would expect from a movie like this. Bottom line, If you liked the Tom & Jerry movie, then you’ll love Space Jam 2. If not, then you might want to skip this one.

Why You Should Watch: Nostalgic, Entertaining, Perfect Kids Movie

Why You Should Skip: Ridiculous Story,


8. Werewolves Within (July 2nd)

Watch On Prime Video (Rentl) Watch On Prime Video (Rentl) | Watch On Apple TV (Rent) Watch On Apple TV (Rent)

Synopsis: After a proposed pipeline creates divisions within the small town of Beaverfield, and a snowstorm traps its residents together inside the local inn, newly arrived forest ranger FINN (Sam Richardson) and postal worker CECILY (Milana Vayntrub) must try to keep the peace and uncover the truth behind a mysterious creature that has begun terrorizing the community.

Review: Werewolves Within is a clever movie that uses a literal and metaphorical monster to show how greed and selfishness can ruin a community. Despite its low budget, the movie is well-made, incredibly funny, and brings out the best of its great cast of actors. Definitely a must-watch.

Why You Should Watch: Hilarious, Awesome Story, Great characters

Why You Should Skip: No Reason to Skip
