There are a few good films coming out in August, starting with Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, a comic book movie I have been waiting about a year to see. The premise is simple; if it is really love, you will be willing to fight for it. The style is anything but simple; full blown comic book reality mode for this one.

Also in August, Tales from Earthsea is the US release of a Miyazaki animation of an Ursula K. Le Guin classic story. Except this time it is Goro Miyazaki, son of genius filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, in the directors chair. It took this Anime four years to make it to this country, but the wait is worth it.

I am somewhat curious as to just who thought a remake in 3D would salvage this film? I am referring to Piranha 3D, of course, also due out this month. I hold out a bit more hope for Vampires Suck, but only a bit. It is, after all, a spoof of the Twilight franchise, which was pretty bad before anyone decided to poke fun at it on film.
