I have pages and pages of notes to go through but there was one point that reminded me of something Jenika and I talk to clients about all the time – making old content new again.

Movies: "Midnight in Paris"

Movies:  "Midnight in Paris"

 

For movie lovers, here’s a charming little palate cleanser between the main courses of summer blockbusters.  No alien invaders, no explosions, no gunplay -- just a romantic trip to the Paris of today and yesterday, courtesy of writer/director Woody Allen.

 

I have to tell you that I had pretty much given up on the Woodman in recent years.  His later movies seemed too whiny, too obsessed with toffee-nosed Brits (“Match Point” looked like it was shot through the window of a Ralph Lauren boutique), too misanthropic.  And let’s face it, Woody’s private life was nothing to write home about.

Movies: "Super 8"

Movies: "Super 8"

 

It’s the summer of 1979 and strange things are happening in the small town of Lillian, Ohio.   First there’s a terrifying train derailment.  A detachment of secretive soldiers arrives to clear the wreckage.  Then all the dogs in town run away.  People start to disappear.   And who would possibly want to rip out all the engines from the vehicles sitting in the used car lot?

 

Those are the first clues to the cleverly plotted “Super 8,” my pick for the best popcorn movie of the summer.
