I'm not a huge movie guy. 
I grew up in a small town [34° 24' 12.42" N, 99° 0' 29.12" W] where the closest movie theater was an hour drive away. For me, movies are truly social things that I do because I want to share a social ritual with friends or something along those lines. All of that being said, I really like a lot of the movies coming out this summer. I went to go see WANTED last night at the Studio Movie Grill with my upstairs neighbor and his girl friend. It's a very satisfying blow-em-up movie, so I left the theater with a happy macho-glow on my face due to the slow motion blood splatters and car chases.
I also want to see Hancock with Will Smith. But Wall-E is the movie that I've been looking forward to the most for about a year. There's something very appealing about characters that don't talk but still tell a story. Besides, it's a cartoon, and I really am a kid (still).

I saw it last Friday. It's obviously a cartoon aimed at children, but Pixar usually makes movies that have social commentary and sarcasm built in making it also entertaining for adults. Not only is it visually stunning, it is quite funny. One of the best movies I've seen this year.

I think that MIGHT make you more gay than me.

I was scarred by ABBA and the Bee Gees in the 70's. I've never recovered.
