July also saw us celebrate my Father-in-law's 70th birthday, where we enjoyed a lovely meal at a local pub and surprised him with a chocolate birthday cake!
We had a few cinema trips; we saw Terminator: Genisys which was pretty good - I'm really glad Arnie was in it! Antman was a lot better than I thought it would be - I wasn't expecting much, but it had some good laughs and wasn't as cheesy as some of the other Marvel films. Inside Out was wonderful! We are huge Pixar fans, and this latest movie didn't disappoint. It was so imaginative and really funny - great for all audiences.
We watched quite a lot of films this month too; Saint Vincent was great and had some really funny moments. Song For Marion was a great watch and showed that life can go on after a great loss. We've been really into our horror films recently and watched Rec, which is a Spanish found-footage film, and I really loved it! We were so eager to continue the series, so also managed to watch Rec 2, which was good but didn't leave me as impressed as the first one did. I think there is also a third and fourth to watch. We re-watched The Woman In Black, in anticipation of watching the second one, The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death. We love the first film, but the second offering was just awful. We are also watching the Insidious films - we've watched the first and second film so far, which we really liked, and are looking forward to the third one, which we've not seen before. We watched What We Do In The Shadows which is a documentary-style film about vampires and gives a hilarious real-life take on the life of a vampire.
