July movies

As I wrote earlier--July was the month of old or foreign films. Of the nineteen I saw in July, fifteen would qualify as one of the two (I'm counting the films I saw from the 1980s--heck, that's twenty years old!). Five ***** star films might be a record for a month--it's the old films that I've seen and loved and was rewatching. For the Irene Dunne update--Theodora Goes Wild was the 6th film of hers I've seen this year. I heart Irene Dunne!

Please tell me you were forced to watch Employee of the Month at gunpoint.

I love Steve Zahn so that's why I watched it. I also like Christina Applegate and Matt Dillon...this move wasn't very good though. But, if Zahn is in it, I'll watch it.
