Harry Styles' Film Debut, the New Spider-Man, and More Movies to Watch in July
- Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 6)
We got a sneak peek of Spider-Man teaming up with the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War last year—now it’s time to explore a new ship, specifically that of Peter Parker and his new father figure-slash-mentor, Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man. It’s something we’ve never seen onscreen before, not in the first two Spider-Man franchises. Peter Holland, the adorable actor who plays Peter Parker, says, “Peter’s trying to prove himself to Tony that he is old and wise enough to take on bigger tasks, but Tony keeps putting him down and telling him he isn’t ready yet. I think that’s what really drives Peter to possibly go down the wrong path, before he figures it out, and we see why Peter Parker is the most beloved and powerful superhero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
- Bloody Crayons (July 12)
This isn't your regular feel-good teen movie: What is supposed to be a fun, out-of-town barkada trip takes a turn for the worse when they play the game Bloody Crayons. (This is why we should stick to board games, people!) It stars your favorite actors such as Sofia Andres, Diego Loyzaga, Janella Salvador, Elmo Magalona, Jane Oineza, Maris Racal, Yves Flores, and Ronnie Alonte.
- War for the Planet of the Apes (July 12)
How does a war last for years, decades, generations even? As we saw in the previous films in the Planet of the Apes series, the fighting begins with a lack of communication and compromise, and is sustained by betrayals, pride on both sides, and a kill-or-be-killed mentality. War for the Planet of the Apes finds Caesar, leader of the apes, on a quest to avenge their losses and win the war once and for all.
- Kita Kita (July 19)
They say love is blind, but we bet you haven’t seen a movie quite like this. Starring Alessandra de Rossi and Empoy (in his first leading role!), Kita Kita is a sweet, funny, unconventional love story with a twist too cute to spoil.
- Dunkirk (July 20)
If it's wrong to be excited for Dunkirk because of Harry Styles, then we don't want to be right. No but seriously, Hazza's film debut couldn’t be any more prestigious: The war drama is directed and written by no other than Christopher Nolan and stars members of the Nolan A-team such as Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy. We'll have to watch the movie to find out how big Harry's part is, but we do know that he booked the role because he's got skills. The director tells LA Times, "For the guys on the beach, we really wanted young unknowns. (Harry) is not that unknown, but he'd never done anything as an actor before. So he auditioned. I auditioned literally thousands of young men with different combinations of young men. And he had it."
- Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (July 21)
Cara Delevingne returns to the big screen in this sci-fi adventure based on the French comic series Valérian and Laureline. She plays Laureline, one-half of the space-and-time-traveling tandem who are tasked to find the dark force causing trouble in Alpha, the home of species from a thousand planets. Cara shares the screen with familiar faces such as Dane DeHaan, who plays her partner in (solving) crime, and Rihanna, a shape-shifting entertainer (but of course!).
- Cars 3 (July 26)
Can an old car be taught new tricks? That’s the dilemma of Lightning McQueen, who must keep up with a new generation of sleek, aerodynamic, record-setting racers. After being in the game for more than a decade, he must learn not to race faster, but race smarter.

Hi everyone! I just want to share my first collaboration with my father. I converted two of my digital arts, Oneness and We Got Each Other's Back, into a vase and a bookend. I designed it and he made it into a reality. The Oneness Metal Vase is perfect for dried flowers and or artificial flowers. The We Got Each Other's Back Bookend is made from solid metal in which the cubes can be arranged to the user's liking. Both metal sculptures work as an accent piece that can liven up one's space.

Imagine you are holding a photograph. There, there you are. A 5-year-old you is being carried by her momma and papa while holding your rag dolls. That innocent, charming little girl is looking at you and said, "Where are you now?"
Life is filled with several U-turns and unexpected twists of events and during these times in which silver spoons are nowhere to be found: Our families ensure we still get and experience the best as we survive this pandemic. Here's my song, I wrote back 2 years ago entitled: "Won't Let You Cry" and take time to honor and appreciate our parents as they are the biggest front liners in our lives throughout the years.
If you're still single now, there are probably a a lot of questions running in your head. But being on your own for a long time helps you discover more about yourself. It's more than just freedom or independence. It's facing the world with so much courage. It's trying to make the most of your life without having to depend on someone. It's being happy on your own and loving yourself with all that you are.
We've been chasing love only to realize that it's not gonna work out that way. The right time will come that you will be blessed with the one you deserve. The one who also prayed to be with you. The one who will make you believe in love again. Let life surprise you. Hang in there.
The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.
Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.
Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.
For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?
Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
Literally to begin with, I am writing with little shaky hands because this is the last time I went for a vacation like most of us must have and can’t plan any for now. The coronavirus outbreak has compelled us to stay at home for our safety and others in the vicinity.
I remember how I penned down my year 2020 to be the most remarkable year of my life in the hope of doing everything I desired for a long time and overcoming few obstacles. Whilst planning things ahead, I forgot to truly value all of things in the present.
I remember being chipper and grateful for my last summer vacation but now I feel I should’ve valued each and every moment. Considering the current gnarly situation, I want each one us to motivate ourselves to look for a positive side and to make the most of our time no matter the situation.
Make a promise to yourself that you won’t give up in these circumstances and reckon that there are a lot of good things for us in the store. We’ll have the most amazing season of our life post pandemic. Let’s accept for the change and become the change. Propagate love and only love.
