ScreenGreen 2007: Where are the Good movies?

Are you enjoying this year’s Screen on the Green movie line up? I’ve heard that “Annie Hall” was gay boys central and a few people walked out on “The Thing”.

My Betrothed Butterbean and I watched our first movie just this past Monday. “Wait Until Dark” was a great thriller if a little 1950’s. Robbers bent on killing wouldn’t even rough-up a blind Audrey Hepburn for a heroin stash, but her husband was a cold-ass, not even giving her a post-trauma hug.

At least we had good views. The chair people seem to have dissipated, or maybe we just got good seats upfront.

Next week is “All the Kings Men” followed by “Casablanca”, both which we’ve already seen. Hopefully next year HBO can come up with better movies, like maybe a fictional DC resident retrospective.

What would you suggest?

    I suggest they show something that is NOT in black and white and that was NOT made before the year 2000. Only then will I consider sitting on the lawn and sweating with a bunch of strangers.

    …although it would be satisfying to see EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS, for the epic destruction of the capitol, etc., with the real thing within eyeshot… Didn’t they show that one in the last year or two?

    …..and Max has a point. I end up not going, more often than not, for reasons of heat/humidity. This would be an awesome event for october.
