365 Days, 365 Movies: June and July

Welcome to the Summer, when television goes away and movies get louder and stupider! I focused on Reese Witherspoon movies in May (in my quest to watch 365 movies in 365 days), and it was great. I really had a new-found respect for her. So, for June, I focused on another great American actor. I'm speaking, of course, of Kurt Russell. For July, I just tried to clear my Netflix queue AND go to the theater as much as possible, really soaking in that free air conditioning.

43 Films in June, 186 Total in 2015

I didn't technically read any complete books in June or July, but I did read some Graphic Novels:

I finally caught up in my quest to watch an average of one movie a day.  Now I just need to keep it up. Wish me luck!
