A Place for Film: Summer Comedies

On this week's episode of A Place for Film, Andy and Jason sit down with Chelsey McKrill again and talk about comedies coming out this summer.

Episode 36: Discussing the Summer Comedies

On this week’s episode of A Place for Film, Andy and Jason sit down with Chelsey McKrill again to talk about comedies coming out this summer. It’s a great summer for comedy, and we discuss all of the comedies currently out, as well as why comedy has become such a big deal during summertime.

Chelsey joins us for her second episode, and as is the tradition on our show, we have her list her five favorite movies of all time.

This is also the last week for the DVD game, as I’ve essentially run out of DVD’s to bring to the table. The DVD game is when I bring 3 unwatched DVDs from my collection to the table and Jason will choose one for me to watch and discuss the next week.

Last week I watched West Side Story, which I discuss in this episode. Next episode, I’ll have watched Field of Dreams. However, I’ve only got about eight DVDs left. So rather than bring the same few back over and over, Andy is going to look for a new personal movie watching project. Have a project to suggest?

And Jason discusses his long-term project of watching 300 movies in one year, tracking them as he goes along. He started at the beginning of May, and was up to 34 as of this recording. He’s still going strong. Stick with us all year to find out how he’s doing.
