July movies

Obviously the high point of the month of July was the all-night, five film marathon that was Slumber Party. Wow, that was a lot of fun! If you were in the Tulsa area and didn't go--you missed a night of unhinged horror film related glee. I also really enjoyed the music documentary Anvil and thought Bruno was funny (and very filthy) but not the electric charge that was Borat. Two five star films: Metropolitan and Sullivan's Travels (Preston Sturges I am in awe of you!). Here's the rundown for the month.

Three foreign films in a month is kind of a low total. I don't know what happened there, ha.

I think I overscored Funny People...the more I thought about it the more I realized it goes really downhill in the second half of the film. It gets pretty ponderous actually, dragging on and on. *** instead of ***1/2!
