TV & MoviesWhat to Watch

July: what to watch in the Cinema and on Netflix


There is an abundance of great TV shows and Movies being released on Netflix and in the cinema this month.

With Golden oldies like Titanic, The Land Before Time and Free Willy all available on Netflix in July. There will be lots to watch on those rainy days


7th July – Spiderman: Homecoming

The Spiderman we saw in Avengers: Civil War is back with his own movie. This movie was a good origin story however it seemed to be propped up a lot by cameos from Iron Man. It is not my favourite Marvel movie but it is not the worst either.

11th July – War for planet of the Apes

This movie is the third installment in the new Planet of the Apes franchise. It has some top quality actors such as Judy Greer, Woody Harrelson and Andy Serkis. Even if you have not seen the other previous movies it is easy to slot into the story line and the CGI alone in this movie is fantastic.

 14th July – Cars 3

Lightening McQueen is back and he’s out to prove himself against the newer, younger racers. This is not getting as good a review as the first Cars movie but with 67% on rotten tomatoes, your kids will probably still enjoy it.

14th July – Pilgrimage

This movie is based on a group of Monks in 13th century Ireland where they travel with a relic across Ireland. Starring Tom Holland this movie has gotten good reviews from critics and should be watched for the beautiful views of Ireland alone.

21st July- Dunkirk

I have been looking forward to this movie for months. This film is set during World War II where British, French, Belgium and Canadian soldiers fight against the Germans in a battle at Dunkirk. The trailer looks fantastic and stars a number of great actors such as Tom Hardy, Killian Murphy, and Kenneth Branagh. If you are planning on going to the cinema this month go to see this movie.


The Big Sick – 28th July

Based on a true story of an American with Indian heritage as he deals with the struggles of dating a woman outside of his culture.



14th July- Friends from College

This is a new TV Show airing on Netflix following the lives of college friends who are all grown up and living in the real world. I didn’t know if this was going to be great or really bad from the trailer, unfortunately this is not getting great reviews and is at 27% rating on rotten tomatoes.

21st July- Ozark

Starring Jason Bateman in this serious drama about drug cartels, money laundering and murder. It is Breaking Bad, Lillehammer and Narcos combined and is getting great reviews. I think this TV show has binge worthy material and the one everyone will be talking about in the next few weeks.

28th July- The Incredible Jessica James

This Netflix Original starring Jessica Williams and Chris O’Dowd is about a playwright in New York who after a breakup begins a relationship with a divorced man. It is getting great reviews and it seems like the perfect blend of comedy with touching moments rolled together.

Special Mention:

Game of Thrones is back this month on Sky Atlantic.  Check out a full recap on last season and my predictions for season 7 here.
