    Hey, this isn't the 80s anymore...

    You can't even find 4 good movies a month to go see... Unless you think "The Green Lantern" or "Transformers 3: The Dark Side of p***" are good.

    I have seen 2 movies this summer, with 2 more potentials this year. "Capt. America" and "Cowboys & Aliens". That's 4 in a summer. In the 80s, it was not uncommon for me to see 10-15 movies a summer. But, hey, they used to have to write scripts back then.

    This is only a deal for someone who is a movie review for a newspaper or runs a movie review site.
