“Blue is the Warmest Color” returns August 26th

I’m not usually one for the romance thing, but this movie really captured me with its honest portrayal of two women in love in modern-day Paris. Bond girl Léa Seydoux (“Spectre”) plays opposite Adèle Exarchopoulos in a story based on a French graphic novel.

Yes, Mathilda, there are more comic book movies than the Marvel/ DC Comics universes. And not all of them have people in tights leveling cities. And they’re just as good, if not better.

Better than “The Killing Joke” if you want to see fully developed female characters, anyway.

Other highlights for August

“Fast and Furious” fans get the first and third entries to the saga. I don’t know if that’s good or bad. I do know that “Tokyo Drift,” the third entry,is not liked by many fans.

Lots of Netflix original content, but nothing from Marvel so how exciting can any of it be (snark)? And no, the movie “Black Widow” is NOT about Scarlett Johansson’s character from the Avengers movies.

We get some decent comedy with a Louis CK special premiering August 15th and Funny or Die making an adaptation of Republican race-baiter-in-chief-wanna-be — er, presidential nominee Donald Drumpf’s classic guide to being a sociopath, “The Art of the Deal.”

“Star Trek: Nemesis” returns so you can see the Next Generation’s attempt to do “Wrath of Khan” before J.J. Abrams butchered it in “Into Darkness.” Early role for Tom Hardy, too.

Now let’s get to that list!
