August 28th, 2008 · 18 Comments

August 5th, 2008 · 26 Comments

The year in movies got off to a pretty tepid start, but I’d say it’s heated up considerably in the past couple months. Whoda thunk that the same year that brought us Superhero Movie, Uwe Boll’s Postal and What Happens in Vegas… would end up being one of the best summer movie seasons I can […]
