Kevin’s Monthly Ranking: July Edition

I am ranking all of the movies that I saw in July. Find out my list here!

  1. The Green Knight

The Green Knight was a visceral, visually stunning masterpiece carried by Dev Patel. While it definitely isn’t for everyone, I had a great time simply admiring the immersive cinematography.

As long as you go in knowing that this is going to be a slow-burn, then you should have a good time watching Lowery’s phenomenal work. This is currently my favorite movie of 2021 and you should definitely go check this one out in theaters if you can!

Rating: 9 out of 10 on the scale of awesomeness!

2. Black Widow

Black Widow is the newest Marvel release and it satisfied me for the most part. Florence Pugh stole the show as Yelena and made me very excited to see her in future Marvel projects. While it isn’t one of the best films in the MCU, it was a good sendoff for Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10 on the scale of awesomeness!

3. The Forever Purge

I know I’m going to get a lot of hate for putting this up so high, but just hear me out…

The Forever Purge is the fifth installment in the Purge movie franchise and I had a blast with it. Though some may have been annoyed with its constant bombardment of politics, I thought that it was necessary for the story.

I know The Forever Purge isn’t at the same level as the film’s above in terms of quality, but it is in terms of my enjoyment. I had a good time with it and I think other’s will too if they give it a chance. All I have to say is that this isn’t your typical Purge movie.

4. Stillwater

Stillwater was on its way to becoming one of my favorite films of the year, up until its third act. What was such a grounded film seemed to drastically shift into an entirely different direction that I didn’t really like.

While I did have problems with the movie, I really enjoyed seeing the chemistry between Damon, Cottin, and Siauvaud. Their dialogue was organic and they were able to effortlessly splash waves of humor onto the screen.

Rating: 7 out of 10 on the scale of awesomeness!

5. Old

Old is M. Night Shyamalan’s latest bizarre piece of work that is very divisive among moviegoers. There were several peculiar decisions made with the story direction and cinematography that impeded the likeability of this film.

While I can’t necessarily say that it was good cinema, I still did find myself enjoying the heck out of all of the craziness that was unfolding before me. It isn’t M. Night Shyamalan’s best delivery, but it also executed on giving me a pretty good time.

Rating: 6 out of 10 on the scale of awesomeness!

6. Space Jam: A New Legacy

Bugs Bunny and crew are back to playing basketball in Space Jam: A New Legacy. Instead of Michael Jordan, LeBron James takes the helm and actually delivered a fairly decent performance.

This is a film that is made for children and I am not going to bash it to pieces like a lot of people seem to be doing. I thought that LeBron James did a good job and any kid should have a blast with this movie.

I don’t want to spoil anything, but there was also an amazing cameo from an adult animated show that I absolutely loved.

Rating: 5.5 out of 10 on the scale of awesomeness!

7. The Tomorrow War

The Tomorrow War was exclusively released on Amazon Prime Video. It was action-packed, but also strangely paced at the same time. I had a good time with it, but its not anything that I am eager to re-watch anytime soon.

Rating: 5 out of 10 on the scale of awesomeness!

8. Great White

I first need to start off and say that I actually enjoyed all of the seven films that were placed above this. While the seven movies above are hovering near the surface of the ocean, Great White falls far, far below… in the depths, where hopefully nobody will find it.

Where do I start here? As a sucker for shark movies, I thoroughly enjoyed both 47 Meters Down films and The Shallows. However, Great White doesn’t even compare in quality. There is only about 3-5 minutes of shark action in the entire film and half of that is stock video footage, with the other half being subpar CGI.

Since Great White sells itself as a shark movie, with the literal name of a shark species in the title, it was absolutely disappointing to see hardly any shark action at all.

Rating: 2 out of 10 on the scale of awesomeness!

Those are all of the movies that I saw in July. Let me know what films you saw this month and how you would rank them in the comments! And as always…
