summer cinema blockbusters = winter home entertainment


It took me a few years to realize it, but that tends to be how summer movies work. I say this only because I just came home from Hollywood Video with my new Tuesday releases Wall-e and Tropic Thunder. I also picked up Kung Fu Panda, a movie that came out a week or so ago but I forgot about. I managed to miss all of these (and a few others) when they were in theaters. Shame on me, I know. But I got to see the mega hits like Iron Man, Indiana Jones, Wanted and The Dark Knight, so that’s all that matters (not really).

As the weather starts to turn into it’s typical New Englandy cool-down (and lately it’s been struggling to get there with stubborn spring-like temps every other day), I once again reminisce about my Purchase days and the theory–or philosophy–my buddy Ryder shared with me about the opposite sex that lived on campus. This actually could translate to other places besides college, like maybe the mall, but basically once it gets cold, all the pretty girls tend to stay inside. (This doesn’t mean they never come out, since we still need to get to class. And it doesn’t mean we are excluding less attractive women either. We weren’t that shallow. But we had our preferences.) The trick is to get friendly with these hibernating ladies before the snow falls so they are snuggling up with you somewhere warm in a dorm room or house or something. Even though I was at Purchase for a year, this theory seemed to be true. There really weren’t as many girls roaming the courts when it was cold and snowy unless it was necessary. The dorms were all connected with underground tunnels that also went to the dining hall, so that was a popular option for everyone, even if the food was… blah? But ’twas another chance to find more cuddle buddies.

And what better way to pass the snuggle time than with a warm summer blockbuster now on DVD? Well, actually watching old classics or TV shows on DVD worked just fine, sometimes better. What else may go on during these cuddly snuggly times I don’t think I need to discuss, this is a college atmosphere I’m describing. As eccentric as the Purchase is, it’s still college. But the great thing about that place is how movies of all kinds, old and new, domestic and foreign, would bring people together. Well, until Christmas break.

Reviews of the movies above will be (or have been) posted on my MySpace, per usual once the film has been viewed and I feel like writing about it.

    You think that’s bad? I haven’t been to a movie theater since The DaVinci Code. I’m all about DVD and OnDemand đŸ˜‰ Heheh.
