It's still all mainly about the Melo (look whose picture is prominently placed at the top of this page!), and what we're in to, up to, and trying to do, and all of the other good bits in between.

Hot, Hot, Hot

Thank goodness - the killer heat wave 2006 seems to be over, or at least on its last gasp. Good thing too, there are not too many more movies I particularly want to spend full fare on this summer. Except maybe Miami Vice, although the original Crockett and Tubbs probably can't be topped. For keeping straight faces during all that bad 80s' fashion alone they deserved Emmys.

After the air conditioned oasis of the McLaughlins Saturday night (cup-a-cakes and Arizona mister) and recovering from all the laughing, we escaped to Cinetopia to enjoy Clerks II followed by Lady in the Water. Cinetopia - it rocks. I am now totally spoiled and it is the only way to watch movies. Clerks II - loved it. Not as biting as the original, but Kevin Smith still writes the best dialog and he just gets it man, he just gets it. Lady in the Water - eh? Me thinks M. Night believes his own hype a wee tad too much. And hey, those scary grass things look an awful lot like the Nothing in Neverending Story - good special effects, but a little bit close for copyright comfort.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope the heat is starting to subside over there! And cinetopia -- I never heard of it, but I will have to check it out once I get there! Going to the movies is one of my favorite things. Hope to meet you!
