End of July Report

It’s the end of July, which closes out our prompt on Summer Blockbusters. Thanks to all our contributors. I know for myself I didn’t complete my post or even watch the two I picked for myself, which was “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” and “War for the Planet of the Apes.”  While I didn’t get to see these, I did get to see a current summer blockbuster, that will most likely be a future Cinema Shame contender for those unlucky few who decide to miss out: “Mission: Impossible Fallout.”
