Summer. Movies. Barbeques. Insane amounts of work.
Actually I wish I could actually participate in the first two events. That said however, there are four – no – five movies that I’m extremely interested in watching. “Serenity” and “Star Wars III” – both because I’ve always been a fan of sci-fi themed spectacles. And if there’s one thing I can count on, it’s that Star Wars III will be a visual spectacle without peer.
Disclaimer: I have yet to watch the second episode, and couldn’t care less.
Sci-fi aside, I’ll turn to the urban dramas – for lack of a better descriptor. “Crash” and “Heights” both look interesting.
I think I’d watch Heights for the night-time cityscapes. I love drinking in the experience of a large city at night. Even an act as simple as driving into a large skyscraper studded downtown at night is…wonderful.
But, this post is about movies, so I’ll save my fascination with cities for later.
The last movie I’m interested in watching is “Layer Cake”, largely on the strength of “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” and “Snatch”. Gotta admit that the UK site is spiffier than the US/International one.
