Watch | Read | Listen {August 2015}

I have a list of ten or so books that I'm trying to stick to reading before I pick up anything else because the books on this list have gone unread for too long, BUT I love Felicia Day and I think listening to her new book, especially if she's reading it herself, would be awesome. I don't think I'll be in the movie theater too much this month. My brothers and I want to see either Fantastic 4 or The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and I think the latter will win. 


Fantastic 4
A group of young outsiders (Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell) teleport to an alternate universe, which alters their physical forms in unexpected ways. Not only must the team learn to harness their new abilities, but they must work together to save the world from a friend turned enemy. {Watch the trailer.} I have to say, this one looks really good and I like the casting. Seeing this for sure. (August 7)

The Man from U.N.C.L.E
In the 1960s during the Cold War, a CIA agent Napolean Solo (Henry Cavill) and KGB agent Illya Kyrajin (Armie Hammer) are forced to work together on a mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization and their only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist. {Watch the trailer.} Doesn't this movie look so awesome?! (August 14)

Straight Outta Compton 
When five young men in the 1980s translated their experiences into a brutally honest music that rebelled against authority, they gave a voice to a silenced generation. This movie tells the story of how these men revolutionized music and pop culture forever by telling the truth about life in the hood. {Watch the trailer.} Wow, this movie looks so intense and amazing. (August 14)

Learning to Drive
Wendy (Patricia Clarkson) is a Manhattan author whose husband left her for a younger woman. Darwan (Ben Kingsley) is soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage. As Darwan begins teaching Wendy how to drive, she learns to take control of her life and she teaches him how to impress a woman. {Watch the trailer.} Who doesn't love a feel-food movie? (August 21)

Z for Zachariah 
In the wake of a nuclear war, a woman (Margo Robbie) has learned to survive on her own, but then she finds another human, a scientist (Chiwetel Ejiofor). Just as they begin to trust each other, a stranger (Chris Pine) shows up and things begin to unravel. {Watch the trailer.} Do yourself a favor and watch the trailer. All I can say is: Whoa. (Augst 28)
