June movies

It was a busy month with twenty-four films, some of which will have to remain secret due to their possible inclusion in Slumber Party 3: Payback later this month. I took full advantage of the Netflix streamers and saw 8 of them plus a little television streaming here and there. Awesome technology that streaming is. Highlight of the month was Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen's most charming picture in a long, long time. Lately, he's been so hit and miss with only Vicky Christina Barcelona being worth much. This is old-school Woody Allen and it's a favorite of mine for 2011. I also recommend the documentary Bill Cunningham in New York as it is an inspiring and interesting look into the life and career of the fashion photographer. On the other end of the spectrum, avoid the woeful neo-western The Last Rites of Ransom Pride at all costs! I only watched it due to new crush Lizzy Caplan. Not worth it.

watching movies for crushes can be really disappointing!
