Another quiet month with just three films…
Spider-Man: Far From Home
#FF19 Spider-Man: Far From Home is the MCU film you deserve right now. Light-hearted action, funny quips, decent characters.— Gary Fleming (@garyfleming) July 8, 2019
There's nothing new here, but it's done well. The twists are obvious (I guessed most from the trailers). The film is fun. Watch it.
The Dead Don’t Die
#FF19 The Dead Don’t Die is a weird wink and nod to Romero’s movies, without saying anything fresh.— Gary Fleming (@garyfleming) July 13, 2019
A little self-knowing. Funny, with some great characters (fantastically cast). It doesn’t really go anywhere but it really doesn’t have to.

The Current War
#FF19 The Current War is a decent enough telling of the fight between Westinghouse and Edison.— Gary Fleming (@garyfleming) July 28, 2019
Performances are fine, but it could build out the characters a bit more. The editing needs to give scenes more room to breath, and the tealy/orange colour grading could use work.
The July Winner
Not a particularly strong month, so I think the winner is the fun action of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
