Well it looks like the the summer box office may be picking up a little with the help of “Superman Returns”. I went to see the film and liked it quite a bit. Brandon Roth, Kate Bosworth, and Kevin Spacey did a fine job in my opinion. And Frank Langella did a very good Perry White for that matter. Bryan Singer did an excellent job of directing this super movie. I am not sure who the kid actor was but he was good too.

I have been meaning to see “Click” Adam Sandler’s movie along with the animation “Cars”, so now since I have a few days to myself I will end up doing so. Those movies sound like fun. There is nothing like watching a very good movie in beautiful Dobie surround sound while eating a large popcorn and a soda in one hand and holding your girls hand with the other. Nothing more Americana than that I say. I just hope that people will turn off their cellphones while in the theatre. That would be a plus!
