    The Croupier, 6/10; Stars Clive Owen as a struggling writer who is manipulated into taking a job as a croupier in a Casino. It's a rather convoluted and lengthy story with some interesting plot lines. The twist at the end was a bit of a surprise and there are a couple of loose ends that could have been cleared up.

    Summer of '84, 7/10; A mystery/horror movie set in a smallish town back in 1984. The plot revolves around a young kid that has a lively imagination and a number of kids in the area that have disappeared. He convinces his friends that his neighbor, a highly respected cop, is somehow involved in these disappearances. The kids try to gather evidence to support the theory and things start to get weird.

    Star Wars, A New Hope. 9/10

    just watched this with my 9 year old. I hadn’t watched it in years and it was her first viewing. It really holds up well after all these years. Only a few additions by Lucas seemed a little out of place, but some actually helped with the story telling. The relatively tight story telling just points out how far the recent movies have strayed. It’s hard to point to any major flaws and the minor ones don’t take away from the experience. My kid is eager to watch Empire now. It’ll be interesting to see how she views that one, considering the substantial change in tone.

    The 7 Year Itch with Marylin Monroe. Ran on a regular TV channel.

    Whatever 'it' was, she had it.

    I just looked through Zack Snyder's filmography. It's not impressive. That guy seems able to fuck up anything. He didn't fuck up Watchmen too bad. Because he stuck to the original story and didn't get creative. But it's still a pretty flat movie.

    But I need to see how Snyder manages to fuck up a zombie movie. I didn't think that was possible.
    I thought 300 and Dawn Of The Dead were pretty good.
    Yes, I agree 300 is great. I will amend my earlier appraisal of him. He does have talent. But is hit'n'miss. Mostly miss.

    I hadn't heard of the 2004 Dawn of the Dead before. I want to see this! I cannot get enough of zombies.

    Summer of '42, 6/10; Released in 1971 this movie is a "coming of age' story set in 1942 on the island of Nantucket. Stars Jennifer O'Neill, Gary Grimes and Jerry Houser. Three teenage boys are vacationing on Nantucket and are determined to "get laid". One of the boys becomes smitten by an older woman and awkwardly tries to befriend her. The woman's husband is in the military and is sent to fight abroad so he does start to make some headway in striking up a friendship with her. There are some good parts to the movie but I think it is overrated. Although the scene where the main character "Hermie" is in the drugstore trying to buy condoms is very good.

    I feel the same. It was considered a heart-catching coming of age story when it was released. To me, now, it seems less substantial, and it plays off the plot of Tea and Sympathy too much for comfort. Drugstore scene is good, and in the same way, the evocation of the war years.

    I saw this movie years ago and I seem to remember really enjoying it so I thought I would watch it again. Alas, my memory must have been playing tricks as I didn't think it was particularly good. The drugstore scene stands out and there are a couple of other scenes that are memorable but overall the movie is pretty bland. I don't think I have seen the sequel, Summer of '44.

    This movie came out when I was 10 years old, so I was too young to watch it in the theater. However, Mad Magazine (my older brother subscribed) had its satirical take on it that I remember pretty well, especially the drugstore scene. Hermie is in the drugstore saying to the clerk, "I'd like to buy some whisper, whisper, whisper. From then on out, Hermie and the clerk described his request as a whisper, whisper, whisper. I remember thinking that was kind of funny and interesting, but I had know idea what the whisper, whisper, whisper meant. It was not until I was in my 30's that I rented the video and did the old forehead slap and realized it was about condoms. Duh. I guess I never figured it out at age 10, because I didn't even know what a condom was back then. I probably didn't even knew what sex was.
