So an alien, a vampire, a Mogwai, a vice principal, and Sean Astin walk into a movie theatre...

Guelph Movie Club Episode 6: Jaws (the one with the giant shark) is screening Thursday, June 27 at 9:00 p.m.

But before we get to the big catch, we’ve got another fish to fry: namely, choosing the movie that will become GMC Episode 7 (July). So get your voting fingers ready. The short list—just imagine me doing an imaginary drum roll here—is:
It looks like Episode 7 is going 80s—and it’s hard to argue with that. You can vote for the movie you'd like to see in June by taking this GMC poll:

Voting ends Thursday, June 20, at midnight.

So come on out to Jaws in June, but stay near shore. Till then, see you at the movies.

  1. First, awesome title to the post - kudos.

    I'm going to have to pick the one with the Vice Principal. Breakfast Club is the classic John Hughes 80's movie. Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald...what more to do we need?

  2. Here's the thing about Breakfast Club (or three other movies on this list, for that matter) - it's not E.T.

    This movie is magic, folks. It's about a boy and his alien. It's about making friends and saying goodbye and growing up. It's about Reese's Pieces.

    This movie is, at its heart, about believing. And, in these trying times, couldn't we all use a little believing?

  3. It was really difficult for me to place my vote this month, but I had to vote with integrity. I've said right here on this blog in the past that it would be Gremlins every time, but the reality is that The Lost Boys is the perfect July movie.

    The beach, the park, hanging with your friends all night and sleeping all day. It's what summer was made for. Oh yeah, and slaying vampires, that's also what summer was made for.

    So, I won't judge if you choose to vote for The Lost Boys over Gremlins.

    Anything else though... simply makes no sense.
