You don't? Well, it's the summer heat and it's here to torture us for the next few months. We're feelin' it, that's fo' sho. All the kids and teens are coming in earlier now that school is done. Maybe you should come by too.
So grab you lady or man, a glass of lemonade, a pair of trunks or a bikini and a beach chair and chill out in our perfectly air conditioned store. Rent something while your at it too!
Confessions of the Shopaholic: I was a really bad shopaholic, but just had to go cold turkey. After some heavy withdrawals and minor freaking out, I was cured. Still... everytime I step into a shopping mall, I get really bad shakes. I just have to be strong and take it one day at a time. Be strong. Be strong.
Last Year at Marienbad: I wish I could say what this film was about, but I'm not sure if I completely understood it. You should rent it and pretend you knew what it was all about just to impress me. Then again, I'm a nobody. Why would you want to impress li'l ol' me?
My Dinner with Andre: It's strange to think a movie that's totally dependent on dialougue could've existed. Anyways, while watching this, I kept remembering the MDWA action figues from "Waiting for Guffman" and the MDWA video game from The Simpsons where the options are "Bon Mot", "Trenchant Insight", and "Tell Me More" (all phrases never uttered in the film).
Pink Panther 2: Wait? Peter Sellers isn't doing these anymore? Wait!? He's dead!?
Tom and Jerry: The Chuck Jones Collection: I don't like the cat's face (is he Tom or Jerry?). It prevents me from being able to enjoy this DVD.
Waltz with Bashir: I was ready to get down and boogie with this film. Turned out it had nothing to do with dancing. It's about war in the middle east! You can't dance to that (and lord knows I've tried). What a jib!

So, the signs aren't up yet, but the clerks couldn't wait and decided to put their sections up early. They were promptly terminated.
Mark A's "Celebrate the Independence of American with Explosions!": Mark A. loves this country so much, he's blowing up a small portion of it (with fireworks I hope). Before the feds arrest him at his country cabin and confiscate this section as evidence, you should rent some of the films with big explosions here including "The Rock", "The Bridge on the River Kwai", and the always appropriate "Independence Day".
Martina M.'s "Deep Blue I want to Give it All to You": Do you like blue movies (the non-pornographic kind) like "Blue", "Deep Blue", "I Am Curious: Blue", and "La Blue Girl"? Okay. Some of those have some racey scenes, but still, do you like these movies or any movies with the word "blue" in the title? Then come in and check this section out and take some of the babies home.
CATCH YOU ON THE FLIP SIDE:
Adios mujures y muchachos!
