We know not everyone has time for every major release or big movie, so instead of featuring 10 great films a month, these are truly the ones that cannot be missed this June.  They’ll either be films coming out in theaters that week or something on Netflix I think that’s worth the watch. Also, don’t forget that you don’t necessarily have to watch whatever film I pick in that exact week. Watch it whenever you want!

We are well into the summer block buster season and June has some of the major releases! It’s going to be an amazing month of films so have your bank accounts ready to be emptied at the the movies! Check out my last post for back in May.

If you do check out anything I’ve highlighted or think I left off a crucial film, tell us about it in the comments section below!

Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.
