HBO in August



I recently re-upped my HBO subscription and have been scrolling through several L&D reviews of some of their upcoming marquee movie offerings.

The Favourite, August 3  (An L&D favourite.)

Aquaman, August 10 (Horrible, even by DC standards.)

The Mule, August 17

Can You Ever Forgive Me, August 31 (An even bigger L&D favourite.)

And if I had done this for July it would have looked like this:

Bohemian Rhapsody, July 6  (“Nice pants!”)

First Man, July 20  (“Is she still mad at him?”)

Widows, July 27  (“Even Liam Neeson does some acting, in a film where remarkably no one gets kidnapped.”)

Aside from Aquaman, these are all solid fare or better.

If I get around to it, I might weigh in on the five-part Chernobyl series, which was pretty good, though ultimately too action movie-ie to characterize the real thing.   I can’t decide if I’m looking forward to The Watchmen or not.
