Summer Movies

New movies I want to see:

A Scanner Darkly---I am not a big PKD fan, but I have never failed to enjoy a Philip K. Dick movie adaption (Blade Runner, Minority Report, Total Recall, Paycheck).

Clerks II---Guilty pleasure. I can probably wait for this to come out on DVD, but if I get bored, I might catch it in the theater.

My Super Ex-Girlfriend---This looks bad, but it might be good.

Movies I've seen so far this summer:

X-Men 3---The new director did not do nearly as badly as he could have done.

An Inconvenient Truth---Definitely worth seeing. If you are unwilling to shell out a few dollars for a ticket, you can download the presentation itself.

A Prairie Home Companion---This was a really slow movie that didn't really go anywhere.

Superman Returns---It felt like a Superman movie. That's all I really wanted from this one.

Dead Man's Chest---In adventure stories, the coin of the realm is strangeness. Think of the Barsoom stories.
