JULY LOVE FILMS: SEXY "STEP UP REVOLUTION", TOUCHING "FALLING OVERNIGHT", DRAMATIC "CRAZY EYES", EMOTIONAL "TAKE THIS WALTZ"

You know how love isn't always easy, sometimes it goes with the natural flow and sometimes there are obstacles. Some of the love films hitting cinemas this summer deal with such things.

STEP UP: REVO LUTION
 If you prefer love heat and stormy passion mixed with sexy dancing and sinfully hot bodies, there's the new part to the famous STEP UP saga coming out July 27th! This time, it sets the dancing against the vibrant backdrop of Miami. Emily (Kathryn McCormick) arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer and soon falls in love with Sean (Ryan Guzman), a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs, called “The Mob.” When a wealthy business man threatens to develop The Mob's historic neighborhood and displace
thousands of people, Emily must band together with Sean and The Mob to turn their performance art into protest art, and risk losing their dreams to fight for a greater cause. I must admit I'm really in love with the trailer!

FALLING OVERNIGHT
Opening in cinemas July 27th FALLING OVERNIGHT tells the story
of twenty-two year old Elliot Carson on the day before he has surgery to remove a brain tumor. Facing what could be his last night, Elliot's path intersects with Chloe Webb, a young photographer who invites him to her art show. Elliot welcomes the distraction and as the night descends, Chloe takes him on an intimate and exhilarating journey through the city. But as morning approaches, and Chloe learns of Elliot's condition, the magic of the evening unravels, and they must together face the uncertainty of Elliot's future.

CRAZY EYES
 Opening July 6th in cinemas in USA is CRAZY EYES love comedy about Zach (Lukas Haas) who, with too much money and time on his
hands, looks like he's living the dream. There's a steady stream of beautiful women and the party never ends. He meets a girl he calls Crazy Eyes (Madeline Zima), and she's unlike anyone he's ever met before. She's the one woman Zach can't have, so naturally he wants her. While Zach's hard-partying lifestyle threatens to go off the rails, family concerns begin to play a major role in Zach's life. Will the quest for love and the responsibilities of family life help this poor little rich boy become a man?
TAKE THIS WALTZ 
Love drama with a touching and disturbing twist when adultery ruins 
the family and marriage will be see in TAKE THIS WALTZ which finally comes to cinemas July 6th with Michelle Williams, Luke Kirby and Seth Rogen in the lead roles. The film centers around Margot, a 28 year old freelance writer who lives in a charming house on a leafy street in the Little Portugal section of Toronto, as she struggles with and examines her feelings for Lou, her husband of five years, while exploring a new relationship with Daniel, an artist and rickshaw driver who lives across the street. This is the second full length film directed by Sarah Polley.

  1. I have to admit, I do like the step up franchise. I watch them whenever they're on t.v. Will I go see this one in the theater? Probably not. It's not Magic Mike.

    4. but then again, you really do need your privacy while watching such a movie, so buying the whole theatre for oneself is a good choice... :)

    1. I love me STEP UP movies too. After romcoms there's no other genre that can top my mood better :)

    2. Same here! I love romcoms!!!

    5. I think you and Annzie are about ten years older than me, nothing too much if you ask me... I think people are nowadays young till they turn 50 and then from 50 to 70 they are mature, and only after 70 they are old :)

    1. there should, you've no idea how difficult it was to spot the love movies this summer :( So very few of them....

  4. Step up 4? I can't believe they are still making those. The first one was pretty cool but they are a little too over the top for me. Take this waltz sounds a little boring but the other 2 look like they should be unique and entertaining :)

    1. why not, Matt? STEP UP is deeply inspiring and promotes love, creativity and faith in yourself and what you love. What's wrong with that?

      Delete
    2. Nothing wrong with that, just not my style :)

  5. Step Up 4...The dancing looks good, but not into it, Dez and never will be. I'm a heathen, I know. ;) Why do you put up with me? LOL

    Falling Overnight looks really good as does Take this Waltz. I love Michelle.

    1. you don't even like the idea of carrying over political messages through dance like they did in the film? :)

      Delete
    2. No, because in these films these kids are always dancing to save some school/program/dancehall/park/neighborhood. I've kind of had my fill of that and I don't need to see anymore. Maybe down the road I'll be into those films again. I was once (Footloose, Breakin', Flashdance) Perhaps I should not have said never because you never really do know if your tastes will change. :)

    3. especially when there are hot sweaty naked bodies dancing all around scantily clad :)

  6. Looks like a bit of a change for Rogan

  7. You know how much I love dancing darling. Such a deeply expressive art that shows the beauty of the human body in motion so Step Up is a must see for me.

    Falling Overnight looks like a movie that can transcend cultures and history. There are some things that touch our humanity no matter where we are from and this movie is one of them.

    As for Take This Waltz, I'd like to reach through the screen and slap this ignorant woman. Movies like this do damage to us as a society by promoting loose morals. It is quite normal to find people of the opposite sex attractive and interesting after you are married, but it means absolutely nothing. Attaching emotional valence to a basic and simplistic animal response shows us just how far we haven't come as a species.

    1. Yes, darling, and I love that this installment has such a profound and deep political message! Love such inspiration.

      It's true about FALLING OVERNIGHT. Miracles happen in such situations when you see life in a different way.

      All adulterers need to be bitch slapped, darling!

  8. Pfft all this lovey dovey stuff, I don't mind such movies and actually like a few a lot. But many of the ones today just feel forced, they don't have that spark that the older ones had. And Step Up movies pffft they need to die already.

  9. I'll go to "Take This Waltz" simply because Sarah Polley is one of Canada's best young directors!

  10. Crazy Eyes sounds pretty cliche. I'm thinking it's the typical story line that's in many movies...but, I love those movies so I would definitely go see it!! lol

  12. When did love become so complicated? I watched the step up trailer and didn't think I'd like it but it was good. Probably just the dancing parts though. I do like the Tumor movie though.

    1. STEP UP films usually surprise cynics, since people think those films are shallow, but they are quite the opposite, those are some of the very few positive, inspiring films.

  13. I've got to admit I've never been interested in the Step Up films, I'm not saying they're bad, they just don't appeal to me. Seems like a lot of people love those though, or there won't be so many of those made.

    1. yep, I'm one of those people, there's nothing I love more than inspiring films with lovely messages and with young people doing something creative instead of being criminals or morbid vigilantes :)

  14. Tatum's "hotness". She's The Man had the teen and tween girl demographics aflutter with the actor's naked chest. He may not offer much in the way of a strong performance in this movie, but I give Fletcher credit for keeping Tatum's shirt on throughout the entire film.

    Watch Step up Full Movie
