By Tuesday Mahrle, July 2019 Issue.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

In theaters July 2 | Not Yet Rated | Action Adventure, Sci Fi, Comedy

In the 23rd installment in the Marvel Universe, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is in Europe on a class trip when Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) recruit him to fight the Elementals from another dimension. The film also stars Zendaya, Colbie Smulders, and Marisa Tomei.  With no signs of stopping, Marvel is set to run the box office again this year.


In theaters July 12 | Not Yet Rated | 105 Min | Comedy, Action

A mild-mannered Uber driver is just trying to make some money. His night is about to change when he picks up a police officer in hot pursuit of a brutal killer. Hilarity and action ensue when the unsuspecting driver gets the ride of his life. The film stars Kumail Nanjiani as Stu, the driver, and Dave Bautista as the off-beat cop, Vic.  Will he get a 5-star rating in the end?

The Lion King

In theaters July 19 | Not Yet Rated | Animation, Adventure, Drama

Disney returns with another revised animated classics from their vault. The Lion King is not quite live action as it is entirely CGI, but it is an updated take on the original. It tells the story of a young lion prince named Simba who flees his home when his uncle Scar convinces him that he killed his father Mufasa. After years away, Simba must return to his kingdom and fight Scar for the throne. Contrary to popular belief, the film is not a shot-by-shot of the original. There is a common thread between the two films — the voice of Mustafa portrayed by the incomparable James Earl Jones. And let’s be honest, nobody could live up to Mufasa like Jones.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

In theaters July 26 | Not Yet Rated | 159 Minutes | Drama, Comedy

It’s 1969 and the Golden Age of Hollywood is ending. If you’re a struggling actor and you don’t understand the new age of cinema, what would you do to make it? Our leading man grabs his long-time stunt double as they fight for the fame they deserve in their newly changing careers. This film gives us the gifts of Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Emile Hirsch, and one of Luke Perry’s final performances, all wrapped up in a Quentin Tarantino bow.

Mental Health for LGBTQ+ Aging Adults

Queer elders have made a big impact on the world. Queer folks over the age of 65 were around during the Stonewall Movement in the 1960s and may have even campaigned to improve the rights and freedoms of LGBTQ+ people around the world.

But, as queer elders enter later life, they may need to find new ways to protect and preserve their mental health.
