Any particular movies that anyone let slip away this summer?
« on: September 16, 2008, 01:08:52 pm »
In all of the comic-book hype this summer, I've realized I've missed or am missing opportunities to check out a really good selection of non-traditional summer flicks this year.

I missed Mongul - which I heard really good things about.

Have yet to see Traitor, which snuck by most of the big movie houses in town.

Completely forgot about The Family that Preys, which I'm hearing good buzz on...

BUT, I am clearing my calendar for Miracle at Santa Ana on the 26th. 


Anything I've missed this season, that I should look for on Netflix soon?

Good question, Moor.

I hafta get caught up on summer movies too!
When I go to my neighborhood DVD shop, I have no idea what to buy!  I've had to rely on strangers (with strange tastes) to advise me about what worthy of my time.
Hellllllllllllllllp, HEFfas!

September 30th will be a good DVD day for me.  Iron Man and Forgetting Sarah Marshall come out.  Happy day!  If you liked Superbad and/or Knocked Up, try Sarah Marshall...if not, stay away  :)

Listen to my entertaining radio show, "The Takeover: Top 20 Countdown" at www.top20takeover.VVCRadio.com.

Right on to the real and death to the fakers!  Peace out!

Didn't get to see the Mummy or Wall- E. I think I saw everything else that I wanted to see.

I missed Stepbrothers (kinda sorry about that), Don't Mess With The Zohan(not so sorry about that one), Speed Racer (have heard nothing good about it) and The Mummy(haven't seen ANY of those flicks might as well keep up the tradition).

I managed to hit everthing else tho.

Vic says he missed Step Brothers. I say lucky you. It was like a 10 min skit stretched way too thin.

I missed Traitor and I probably should've missed Death Race but I'm a sucker for Armed Automobiles and Hot Ladies ryding shotgun ;D

When does Watchmen come out?

Skeptical about Max Payne. Might turn out to be another Hitman :-[

That's what I think of most Will Ferrell stuff these days.  He needs to do more movies like Stranger Than Fiction and Melinda and Melinda.  The moron who everybody loves shtick is getting old.

Yeah, I'm with you. I liked Anchor Man and Talledega Nights just has some funny stupid stuff in it but everything else is like one simple idea made to last 90+ minutes which is way too long.
