Summer Not!

Summer Movies!  Some are ... not?   Ha ha?  Well I thought it was funny.  I know the calendar says summer doesn't end until September 22 but Labor Day is over folks.  We ought to move on, but let's not give up on summer movies!  Here are some staff favorites:

Independence Day - seen in a theater that consisted of folding chairs and a screen on a stand.
Breakin' and Breakin'2 Electric Boogaloo.  When only Hammer pants will do.
Shag.  It's 1963; Phoebe Cates, Bridget Fonda and Iowa's own Annabeth Gish go in search of pre-wedding mayhem.  Shag is a dance by the way. 
Sandlot.  Big Scary Dog but the kids triumph!  Sandlot baseball kind of screams summer, doesn't it?
Grease.  The movie may span a school year, but it starts out with Summer Nights. 

More to come!
