Weekly Poll and SUPERMAN!

The good folks at Seattle Weekly are now doing there annual BEST OF SEATTLE poll. You can enter your picks here: We at Scarecrow encourage you to vote for all your favorites, especially in the "Best Local Video Store" category. The summer movie season is officially in full swing with the release of SUPERMAN RETURNS. A group of Scarecrow staffers went to the show at the IMAX theater so we could experience the 20 minutes of 3-D footage (a glasses icon flashed at the bottom of the screen to tell us to put on the glasses, then a red one flashed to tell us to take them off). The scenes were a bit blurry at times, but it was truly eerie to see an airplane oxygen mask dangling right in front of my face. Reaction to the film can be summed up with a shrug of the shoulders. I'm sure debate and analysis will go on around here into the weekend. See it and let us know what you think. In the meantime, we'll be re-watching the JUSTICE LEAGUE dvds and hoping PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST can fulfill our increasingly desperate need for a truly great summer movie.
