I’d like to complain about the 100-plus degree heat today just a little bit more, but cannot now because it prompted an idea for a blog while I was driving home and anxiously watching in case the road buckled in front of me.
Reports of “pavement failure” and even “concrete explosions” had me a little on edge in addition to a day of making journalistic decisions I am still analyzing. So, no pun intended, I’m a little fried and could go for escaping with a flick right now.
How about something summer related? Or better yet how about something with the word summer in the title? I only came up with two while driving, like Summer Rental
with some classic John Candy or the 1987 release of Summer School
. Both would be good ways to kill some time when it’s hot outside and to revisit the good ol’ days of the 1980s.
I checked my blog history once at home and perched at my computer, only to be reminded that I have already posted about two films mentioning the season: Wet Hot American Summer
and 500 Days of Summer
. I am sure it’s still too hot to take a step out the door or open a window, so why not take the rest of the evening and pay homage to the perfect movie-watching weather?
If you have recommendations of titles using “summer” let me know!
