Suddenly Last Summer

Douglas Racso said...

Oddly so I am reminded of "Grease". Probably because I am desperately wanting deep inside to dance and sing in daylight without being drenched in sweat.

Jorge Rodrigues said...

Last year's Oscar submission from Portugal, «Aquele Querido Mês de Agosto», is a very colourful picture of the Portuguese summer away from the big cities... :) as in my case.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona also comes to my mind because it's so recent and Portugal and Spain have both very beautiful beaches AND sight-seeing places.


You should visit someday :)

Casey Fiore said...

White Men Can't Jump actually. I watched it like 14 times on HBO last summer. I think it's a really underrated movie

jimmy said...

first thing i thought of, for some reason, is "fried green tomatoes"

Fabrizzio said...

When I think "movies" and "summer" movies that come to mind are ones that I saw during the summer. Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill (1 and 2) remind me of summer because last year at the very beginning of summer I saw all three of them for the first time and the season stil had this new, full-of-possibilities feeling. So it's like these movies were the beginning of my great summer. ooooh, what a good feeling. I need it to be summer now.

RobUK said...

I think of A Room With A View and Bad Education.

Paul Outlaw said...

Dog Day Afternoon, Hair and Dirty Dancing!

Arkaan said...

It's snowing here.

For film, probably The Incredibles. Or I Heart Huckabees.

Roberta Lipp said...

Grease.

Because when it came out I was in summer camp (fat camp, in fact) and I am exactly the right age and all the girls knew all the music and we listened to it constantly all summer and eventually went to see it as a field trip (or whatever you call it when it's camp).

Scott said...

Wet Hot American Summer.

Mikadzuki said...

All Malick's films - The New World and Days of Heaven in particular - though real summers look almost never as gorgeous.

I also second Paul Outlaw's mention of Dog Day Afternoon.

Catherine said...

Hairspray.

Wayne B. said...

Addams Family Values

adam k. said...

Actually, the first one that came to mind for me was Grease.

Deborah said...

Do the Right Thing, which has such a vivid heat wave. And Summer Stock, which is so underrated and is the movie that made my son become a dancer.

Shawn said...

Ahem. It's officially 90-degree weather now in the city. Anyways...

Dirty Dancing!

Dom said...

91 degrees! Woo!







Would it be wrong to say "An Inconvenient Truth"?

Hee.

Karen said...

High School Musical 2. hehe.

"Summer, summer, summer..."

Dimi said...

For some reason i think of Swimming Pool. Do the Right Thing is a really good choice though.

Superbad.

BTW Nat, Today's LA Times (in the Calendar Section) has a great article about Margaret and the reason on why it's not getting released. Found it really interesting and it seems that they are going to court over it this summer.

Billy D said...

8 Days A Week.

Christine said...

Any of the Friday the 13th movies. This association may be the reason that summer is my least favorite season.

Morgan said...

My Summer of Love.

Henry said...

The Sandlot.

Sean said...

Y Tu Mama Tambien

Robert said...

The first that comes to mind is Thelma & Louise.

Also, The Virgin Suicides has a very summer feel to it.

seanisbored said...

As a few others have said: Dazed and Confused.

Alex said...

Is it wrong that I thought of Driving Miss Daisy first?

Encore Entertainment said...

You write summer and I immediately think of Summertime with Katharine Hepburn. Why is it that Italy seems to be so associated with summer?

Jae Ly said...

The Baby-Sitters Club

NATHANIEL R said...

Alex --- yes. very very wrong.

Kamila said...

"Grease"!!

Max said...

Dog Day Afternoon ... that opening sequence showing August in NY with Elton John's Amoreena ... love it.
