Want to join me at a sneak preview of the new romantic comedy "(500) Days of Summer" starring Zooey Deschanel? (More info on the film here)

I've got passes for the Wednesday, July 22 7:30 screening at AMC Castleton Square 14.

All you have to do is post a comment here about your favorite summer movie so far this year (If you haven't seen anything, no worries). I'll pick winners at random until the passes run out. Winners will be notified by e-mail.

Your thoughts?
  • I really enjoyed Michael Mann's 'Public Enemies' film. It's not a traditional summer film but it has been my favorite movie of the summer so far. Really looking forward to 'Funny People' next week as well.
  • My favorite summer movies this year would Up. Every year Pixar is my most anticipated movie of the year and every year (sans Cars) they really follow through. I'm really looking forward to The Hurt Locker now.
  • Took the kids to see Night at the Museum II. I enjoyed this movie much more than the kind of dread I felt on the way to the theatre. Ben Stiller was a hoot but Amy Adams as Amelia Earhart stole the show. And, a hidden bonus - seeing Owen Wilson reduced to an appropriate size!
  • Harry Potter is by far the most anticipated, and best movie of the summer.....
  • I agree with Alan ... HP6 is the best so far. This has been kind of a weak summer overall, though.
  • Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was my most anticipated but did not live up to my hopes of keeping the storyline intact from the book. I feel there were key elements left out of the film that were crucuial to develop the overal storyline. It was a good movie though in th end. Transformers was an excellent action movie and for those who love special affects and fast paced robot action I would recomend it on IMAX.
  • I was very surprised by how much I laughed at The Hangover. I thought it was another silly guy movie but I enjoyed it as much as my hubby.
  • So far it's been The Hangover or Star Trek (does that count as summer?). But I'm planning to see a lot of moives this weekend; Public Enemies, Transformers 2, Bruno, and Away We Go, so this may change by Sunday.
  • Star Trek - I never thought of myself as a Trekkie, but I think I could have trekkie tendencies.
  • I'd have to say The Hangover has been the best movie of the summer (or this year, for that matter).
  • I've not seen a movie yet this summer, mainly because I spend the first two months of the year in the dark, prepping for Oscar night. Having learned that I'll need to see TEN best picture nominees this year, I'm trying to spend as much time in the sun as I can right now. Of course, with free tickets to 500 Days, I'd be more than willing to take a theater seat for a couple hours. :-) Thanks, Lou.
  • Haven't seen any summer movies...yet.
  • The Hangover - mind-boggling and hilarious.
  • I loved The Hangover. It was by far the funniest movie so far this summer that I've seen.
  • Movie free summer so far.
  • Up!....greta movies because it entertained all ages
  • This movie sounds like superior entertainment to next Wednesday's
    free outdoor concerts in Zionsville or Carmel. (If only for the
    good movie-going company.) Cheers!
  • I enjoyed the Hangover most as well. Hilarious.
  • Amen. Must give props to The Hangover ... inappropriately, laugh-out-loud hysterical. But I digress ... I love take-your-date-to-a-movie scary summer fare. Loved Drag Me To Hell (Sam Raimi always brings the goods ... even at PG-13). Highly anticipating the release of H2: Halloween 2 on 8/28 (does that still qualify as 'summer movie'). Truly enjoy Rob Zombie's take on revamping the Halloweens.
  • I think The Hangover gets my vote...!
  • Transformers is my pick. I saw it twice. The first time with my movie buudy (daughter-in-law). Then again with my 7-year-old grandson, because he wanted to see it, too. It is amazing how complex the movie special effects people can make a Transformation. They are much more complex in the movies than the die-cast models ever were.
  • My favorite so far was Drag Me To Hell. It was over the top, had mostly great effects, some creepy characters, and really good acting. I went with a date (her suggestion actually) and we both had a great time.
  • I've only seen one movie this summer...The Hangover. Thought it was really funny. Making plans to see Harry Potter soon.
  • I liked The Proposal. Very cute and funny
  • UP! In 3-D. Awesome. Just awesome. I laughed, I cried, I -squirrel!- I loved this film. And if you have seen the movie, you get the joke.

  • We really enjoyed seeing Up last weekend. Not sure if they count as summer movies, but also enjoyed Wolverine and Star Trek.
  • My favorite by far has been up. I saw it first at morning showing by myself and later with older grandchildren. It has it all. The three D was unobtrusive but effective, the story moving and heartfelt. It was the kind of me we need during times like these.
  • Movies should offer at least a little magic - and I'm not particular on whether it's purely cinematic, carried over from literature, or from the use of pretty colors and grand music. So far, nothing has come close to Harry Potter.
  • I'd have to go with Public Enemy. Love a good period movie and the Indiana connection was a bonus.
  • I had a blast watching The Proposal
    Made me forget about being unemployed for more than a year!
  • UP! I'm thinking that Pixar is about the most reliably good film makers out there.
  • I liked Public Enemies. I was affraid that they would glorify Dillinger and his gang. The previews made it look that way. I thought the film did a good job of showing how empty his life must have been. I don't think anyone wold leave the theater thinking how great it would be to be like John Dillinger. It is hard to keep up the suspense in a movie when everyone knows how the story ends. I think they did a good job.
  • Star Trek, but I haven't seen The Hangover or Up yet...
  • Transformers!!
  • HARRY POTTER!! I can't wait for the next two to come out.
  • Hands down: Star Trek great reboot without forgetting its roots. It also may have returned the franchise back from the brink.
  • My favorite summer movie has been The Hangover. Simply put, it was HILARIOUS! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We are eager to watch it again to surface more of its clever dialogue!
  • My favorite movie this summer so far was Away We Go. It was realistic and
    hysterical as it told a really good story. It wasn't too long and I left it feeling
  • My favorite movie has been The Ugly Truth. This is not to say that it was a fantastic movie... While it had funny moments, I prefer many of Katherine Heigl's other films. However, I have only seen The Ugly Truth and The Hangover (which was very overrated) so far this summer. Lou, please pick me!
  • My favorite movie this summer has been The Hangover. A very unexpected surprise that had me laughing till I couldn't breathe!
  • I had to see the film Up alone because I didn't want my girlfriend to see me cry!
  • Anyone get tickets to Weds. night yet?
  • Winners have been notified.
    If some go unclaimed, I will pull additional names on Wednesday.
    Lou Harry

Bravo!_____NBCSN is available in almost 2 MILLION more homes than just a few years ago, but Indycar STILL gets less total viewers than it did just a few years ago when NBC took over Versus. Attendance and ratings cratered with the end of season races (just when the title battle got "interesting" HAH!__________And now...new race in Basilia, where Miles celebrated the "rich history" of Indycar racing there.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
