And Summer Commences

On Thursday, I got to go to a theatrical screening of Dazed and Confused, which isn’t just one of my favorite comedies but one of my all time favorite films.  It was great to see Richard Linklater’s ode to the 70s on the big screen but it also symbolizes something else: the start of summer.  So I’ve decided to announce that this season I plan to start a marathon of movies.

I don’t have any particular plan set up but I do have some ideas.  I’ll start watching The Three Colors Trilogy soon and watch Rashomon again and maybe write a comparison of it to Arrested Development’s fourth season.  I also have a giant stack of DVDs ready to be watched, including Notorious, The Searchers, Three Outlaw Samurai, and The Deer Hunter, plus I got a double Criterion Collection set of Yasujiro Ozu’s The Only Son and There Was A Father.

I’d like to thank all my readers and followers for supporting me along the way.  By August, Cinematic will have been up for two years and I’m trying to come up with something special planned.  In the meantime, have a great summer.


  1. Sounds like a plan 🙂

    • Thanks for the comment. Love the song “School’s Out.”

  2. Sounds like a solid summer of quality movie watching! Who could ask for anything more? 🙂

    • Thanks for the comment! I have a lot of great films in store.

  3. Excellent! Three Colours Red and The Deer Hunter are two of my all-time favourites. I’ve never quite got the hang of Ozu – but feel like I’m missing out so looking forward to seeing what you have to say…

    • Thanks! I’ve been waiting to see both Three Colors and The Deer Hunter for quite a while. It took me some time to get into Ozu. When I first saw Floating Weeds, I didn’t appreciate it at first but when I watched it again it really amazed me.

  4. Love me some Dazed and Confused.

    • I always have an annual ritual of seeing Dazed and Confused at the beginning of summer. One of the best comedies ever.

  5. Oh hell yeah. I would LOVE to see Dazed and Confused on the big screen. It’s one of my all-time favorites as well.

    • It was great to see in theaters and I went with a friend who never saw the movie and really loved it as well.
