    I'll second Grindhouse if no one else is going to do it.

    I feel like there are movies we are forgetting but I'm on the beach so I can't really dig into it right now.

    I don't know why people seem to hate on it. I thought it was a pretty creative idea and probably some of the most fun I've had in the theater.

    I'm just going to leave this here. Apparently no one has seen this movie, which makes me sad because I know a lot of you would enjoy it. It's such a great film and I encourage you all to seek it out at some point.

    Voting will probably begin on Monday, July 29, so I would urge everyone who's not seen some of the movies that will be taking part, to take the week to see if they could catch them streaming or on demand from your TV provider. Your local library should have lots of movies to stream via Kanopy and Hoopla for free if you can't find the movie on Netflix and other services. I usually use https://www.justwatch.com/ to look up where something is streaming.

    What's funny is that I prefer the remake to the original, and it's the exact same movie, shot for shot. Even the sets are nearly identical. But I think it's shot better and they speak English... but that never bothers me since I watch lots of international cinema. Is it the actors? Weird. Am I weird?

    Criterion really messed it up when the released the original on Blu-ray recently and didn't include the remake as a second disc. They used to do stuff like that all the time back in the day.
