Christian Bale gives a tour-de-force performance as Patrick Bateman, the main focus of Bret Easton Ellis' novel that looks at a shallow investment banker with a psychotic alter ego.

"Back to the Future" (July 1)

Back to the Future
(L-R) Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox in "Back to the Future."Universal Pictures

It's one of the greatest adventure movies of all time.

Michael J. Fox plays a kid who accidentally gets sent back in time and must help his parents fall in love or he has no future to go back to.

The visionary direction by Robert Zemeckis, the fantastic chemistry between Fox and Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown, the amazing score by Alan Silvestri — this is the closest thing to a perfect blockbuster movie.

And make a night of it and watch the sequels, which are also available.

"Big Daddy" (July 1)

A year after his hugely successful comedy "The Waterboy," Adam Sandler returned with this movie in which he plays a guy who, after being dumped by his girlfriend for being unmotivated, tries to prove her wrong by becoming the guardian of a boy who is left on his doorstep.

Let's just say he's not the best influence for the kid.

"Call Me by Your Name" (July 1)

"Easy A" (July 1)

This just keeps climbing the charts for us as one of the best high school movies in recent memory. Emma Stone plays a clean-cut student who suddenly finds herself the center of attention after rumors spread about her being a floozy. But in reality, all she's doing is allowing guys to pay her to say they have hooked up with her.

"Magic Mike XXL" (July 1)

Marking the second movie in this trilogy, you could argue that it's the best of the three.

Most of the original cast returns, as Mike (Channing Tatum) takes the gang on a road trip to Myrtle Beach for one final performance for the ladies.

"The Sweetest Thing" (July 1)

In one of the most unappreciated rom-coms of the early 2000s, Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate, and Selma Blair play three friends who are all in search of love in different ways.

Diaz's character, Christina, thinks she's found the one, played by Thomas Jane. But when she discovers he's left town, she and her friends set out to track him down.

It leads to a wild trip filled with laughs and self-discovery.

"Uncle Buck" (July 1)

This wholesome John Hughes classic stars John Candy as a laid-back bachelor who spends his days at the races or bowling. Suddenly, his brother reluctantly asks him to babysit his rebellious kids, forcing him to become more responsible.

With a premise that could easily have gone down the wacky comedy road, Hughes's genius is that he kept the movie grounded and layered, leading to laughs but also a movie with a lot of heart that stays with you.

"Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F" (July 3)

Decades after the third movie, the "Beverly Hills Cop" franchise gets a "Top Gun: Maverick"-like relaunch with hat tips to the first two movies and a lot of R-rated laughs from Eddie Murphy.

"Bad Boys" (July 8)

If you are looking for some more Will Smith and Martin Lawrence comedy after watching "Bad Boys: Ride or Die" in theaters, revisit the original movie. The 1995 movie introduces the duo as the wackiest detectives in The Magic City. Along with the comedy/action talents of Smith and Lawrence, there's also Michael Bay coming into his own as an action director. "Bad Boys II" is also available.
