Watch | Read | Listen {July 2016}

I'm definitely a child at heart because almost all of the movies I want to see this month are kids movies. Most of the time I'd rather see something that will make me laugh than make me cry, and movies for kids are all about humor with a dash of emotion and insight about us pesky humans.

But what I'm most excited about this month is, you guessed it, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! I never thought another Harry Potter book would come out and while I'm sad it's a play instead of in narration, I'll take whatever I can get. #Potterheadforlife

P.S. -- Kristin and Megan are doing a #PotterMonth link-up, so check it out!

MOVIES

The BFG
Roald Dahl, Walt Disney, and Steven Spielberg are bringing the beloved children's classic The BFG to life. It tells the story of a young girl who encounters a Giant in Giant County and all of the wonders and perils she sees. {Watch the trailer} I never read the book, but the movie looks absolutely magical. (July 1)

The Secret Life of Pets
What exactly do our pets do when we're not around? Sleep? Eat things? Plot adventures? The Secret Life of Pets is a comedy about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day. Voiced by Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Steve Coogan, Ellie Kemper, and more. {Watch the trailer} MUST SEE THIS MOVIE!

Ghostbusters
The reboot of Ghostbusters is here! Delve back into this hilarious, supernatural world with a new cast of characters played by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. Watch them save the world and crack jokes. {Watch the trailer} Don't get me wrong, I love the original Ghostbusters, but an all-female Ghostbusters girl squad? Hell yes! I love all four of these amazing actresses and I can't wait to see them kick some ghost ass! (July 15)

As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places. (July 31)
