With the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming this month I decided I would review all of the previous Spider-Man movies. I did not include them on this list but you can see my rankings here. I was blown away by the quality of films I saw in July though with two of my favourite movies of the year being released and another one that will make my top 10 list easily. Here are my reviews for the month of July from Best to Worst.
Baby Driver – 9/10
What to say about Baby Driver, the movie is fantastic. If you haven’t seen it yet, then stop reading and go out to see it. Edgar Wright made an incredible piece of cinema with the way he combines the music and the shots, whilst creating a highly entertaining film with epic car stunts.
Dunkirk – 9/10
There was a lot of criticism of Dunkirk and I have no idea why. I was completely blown away by what Christopher Nolan did, the way he the story through so many experimental methods and was able to pull it off
Spider-Man Homecoming – 8/10
I believe this movie was equal best with Spider-Man 2. This film perfectly balanced high school Peter Parker and Spider-Man finding his way in the world. Tom Holland may be the best Spider-Man yet.
War for the Planet of the Apes – 8/10
This was a beautiful conclusion to a fantastic trilogy, and more people should see these movies. I think the title was a mistake as it was definitely not a war film; it is more an emotional journey with the character of Caesar. If you are to see it, marathon the trilogy and you can fully appreciate the improvements in technology from 2011 to now.
Ghost in the Shell (2017) – 5/10
Despite being a remake of a beloved source material the film falls flat. It is visually stunning to look at and there are some cool action set pieces but that it is. Ultimately it was style over substance.
So that is all the movies I reviewed in July. What were your favourite movies that you saw in July. Do you agree with my list? Let me know in the comments section below.
