mamo #54: Summer's in for school

If Snakes on a Plane is on the big screen, then clearly, summer's over. It's time to gaze back at our somewhat addle-headed picks for what was going to do what in the big, scary summer of 2006, and declare an UNDISPUTED CHAMPION. Or at least, a vaguely marginal victory.

For the record:

mamo #53: News, and other happenings.

We're back after a short hiatus with a rambling examination of all that is August of 2006 at the movies. Some news about our favorite hero, some trends are emerging, and the careers of two of Hollywood's biggest directors, Michael Mann and Oliver Stone are on the line this month.
