August’s Unmissable Movies!

500 Days Of Film Reviews The Must-See Movies In August.

While the hot weather in the UK kept some audiences away from cinemas (but not us, of course!) there were still a number of brilliant films to watch. 

 

For me, the month started poorly with the misjudged Sicario 2: Soldado. However, things soon picked up with one of my favourite films of the year so far, Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace.

 

Thought-provoking and unsettling horror thriller, The Endless, came next followed by powerful true life story, Adrift, and Kevin McDonald’s documentary film about what happened to Whitney Houston - Whitney

 

By the middle of the month, we had landed firmly in blockbuster territory with Dwayne Johnson’s entertaining Skyscraper and the welcome return of our favourite superhero family in Incredibles 2

 

Following a much needed vacation on a stunning Greek island with the endearing cast of Mama Mia! Here We Go Again, adrenalin-fuelled action ensued with the phenomenal

Mission: Impossible Fallout

 

Not too shabby, July, not too shabby. Feeling the pressure August? Let’s see what you have in store…
