Movies and TV Shows to Watch on Netflix This July

by

Ah, yes it’s summer (as if you already didn’t know). While it may be the perfect time to head to the beach and soak in some Vitamin D, it’s also the time to binge watch as much on Netflix while you can.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Review

by

While it does show improvement from the previous film, the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean series proves that some studios will keep beating a dead horse or, in this case, a dead pirate, for money.

This film brings back the old swashbuckling gang of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Captain Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), and their lovably dim-witted pirate crew and introduces young newcomers, Henry (Brenton Thwaites) and Carina (Kaya Scodelario) into the mix. There’s also the new mythic villain of the film, the ghostly Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem).

“Logan” Review: The Greatest End to A Hero’s Story

by

What clearly separated this film from its superhero counterparts were the characters, action, and the tone. Hugh Jackman’s version of the titular character, Logan/Wolverine stands out immensely. Throughout this film, the sadness, weariness, and mental and physical fatigue of this character was tangible with every gruesome fight and intense interaction with every character.

Reese Witherspoon Teases Possible Third Legally Blonde Film

by

Sixteen years ago, a smart, young, fashionable woman went to law school. She dealt with misogyny, sexism, jealous classmates, and a professor who expected her to sleep with him for a vital spot in his class. Still, she remained sure of herself, her beliefs and abilities, and her love for pink clothes. That’s right, I am talking about the cult classic Legally Blonde.
