I love the summer.

Summertime
And the living is easy
Fish are jumping
And the cotton is high…

Ahhh, yes…

I feel better about this particular season’s output than I have in some time. I haven’t seen many films this year to date. However, I have been enormously satisfied with what I have experienced.

But that’s the difference between quantity and quality, is it not…?

Here’s a sample of what’s coming down the pike from PREMIERE magazine…
