Friday movie roundup – July 1

July 1, y’all. The year is half-over. If you’re scoring along at home, I’ve posted 73 reviews so far in 2016, up from 46 at the same point last year. Here are the latest ones:

“The BFG” (PG) C+
“The Legend of Tarzan” (PG-13) C
“Central Intelligence” (PG-13) B

I’m still catching up from my recent quasi-vacation, but you can also be on the lookout for: “The Purge: Election Day” (C+), “Independence Day: Resurgence” (C), “The Shallows” (B), “Free State of Jones” (C), “Tickled” (A-), “The Neon Demon” (B), and “De Palma” (B+). We discussed a few of those on Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider this week and last week.

Thanks again to the Patreon supporters who make the reviews possible. If you’re thinking of becoming a patron, $1 a month is all it costs, and Patreon charges you on the first of the month — so if you sign up now, you won’t be charged till August, by which time you’ll probably have forgotten about it and won’t even notice the missing dollar. So everybody wins.

And don’t forget In the Dark, which doesn’t cost anything and sends you my reviews and recommendations every week.

And don’t forget it’s America’s birthday on Monday. She’s super old, but she’s still got it. Send her something nice.
