I'm going to see Rush tonight, so I'm going to get my final June tally in now in case I don't get around to it after my ears have been pummeled with the power of a 50 piece drumkit.

Road House (Rifftrax edition)
12 Monkeys
J.C.V.D.
The Mighty Ducks
Horrible Bosses
Man of Steel
The Running Man
Man of Steel Some More
Strangers on a Train

That's a very advanced screening. Rush is definitely one of my most anticipated movies of the year, and I'm hoping that it ends up being a return to form for Ron Howard, in the same way that Flight got Robert Zemeckis back on track last year.

*sigh* I doubt that I'll watch anything today, so...

JUNE 2013

6/29 - The Third Man = A

*rewatches


That's it. Caught it last night, so if it hadn't been for it, I would've gone blank on June. At least I made it with something worthwhile, even if it was a rewatch.

Finished my listings for the month (on previous page). The 20th and last, Kings of Pastry, also turned out to be the weakest. Unimaginative and cheap-looking direction, and a pastry competition is not that exciting anyway. I think it gets shown occasionally on the Food Network.

Looks like this is my final tally. Not a bad month. Still need to catch some July releases sometime in August, and I would have liked to get around to Enter The Dragon, but I think I'm officially Jim Kelly'd out for a while. Fortunately, Black Belt Jones was a satisfactory note to close with.

I'm watching season 3 of Louie, plus Breaking Bad's coming back, so it looks like I'm getting derailed by TV for a little while. Have to marathon the last several BB episodes to get ready for the final run.

Unke, have you seen The Spanish Main? its a pirate movie.
