* Films we've watched so far this summer
** Films I've seen before but will watch again this summer
*** Film we're watching right now

We've got Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil from the library & four or five others scheduled to record. We didn't have Netflix last year for Arnold which made the hunt part of the fun (just like in Predator). Getting the movies will be easier this year; I hope that doesn't take away from the fantasticness of the process. We're about half way through Swimming w/ Sharks right now. It's a really dated mid-90s thing about a Hollywood lackey getting revenge on his mean boss. A bit 1 dimensional, but a fun black comedy. I don't expect many surprises by the end though.

Absolutely. It's insane. I loved it... I'll write reviews of these in chunks. Maybe I'll start soon.
