I'm back! I ended up skipping last month's edition of "Movies Coming Soon" because procrastination got in the way. :S This is late too, but there are some really great movies coming out this month that I want to talk about, so I'm getting this out before it makes no more sense to publish it.
This post is so late that some of the movies have came and gone, but I didn't want to skip a month, so it'll partially be a review post too. I have only watched two movies so far this month, so that won't be hard.
September looks like a really boring month. I'm looking at the whole list of films that are coming out and feeling a sense of profound disinterest in almost everything being shown. It is slightly better than August, in that there are three movies I am sort of interested in, whereas I only had two last month, but the movie lineup just looks so unappealing to me. And the trend continues for the rest of the year.
August has arrived, and plenty of movies soon will too. There are only two that I want to watch this month though -- the rest just don't interest me for one reason or another.
The 2017 San Diego Comic-Con, the biggest and most popular fan convention in the world, mecca to pop culture geeks everywhere, happened this past weekend, and film and TV studios have been busy dropping new footage and peeks at their upcoming shows. There's actually still one more day to go, but the major film and TV panels are done with, so I'll get down to the news that I'm most excited about.
Disney held its D23 Expo this past weekend. For the uninitiated, it is their biennial fan event in Anaheim showcasing exclusive sneak peeks at what's happening in the entertainment brands under Disney, including star-studded presentations for their animation and live-action series and films, parks and resorts, and more.
I haven't done this in a while, so I figure out it's a good time to start again. But instead of doing it in three-month chunks, which can be very daunting because there are so many movies to talk about, I'll do it monthly so it'll be more manageable. Besides, release dates change all the time, especially for smaller movies, so doing it monthly will make it more accurate.
This post is more than a month late, because I'm a procrastinator of the highest order. I'm the archbishop of the priesthood of procrastinators. My inertia got so bad that I finally decided if I wanted to get it out at all, I should just buckle down and do it, so here it is.
Having posted my "must-see" movies of this summer a few weeks ago, here's the long-delayed Part 2 where I list down the movies I'm less enthusiastic about. I started this post in April, so a few of these movies are already in cinemas, or have finished their run. But I feel the same about them as I did before, so I've let them remain.
We're now in the summer blockbuster season! I've been waiting for this since 2012, after The Avengers came out and they announced the sequel for May 1, 2015. :')
