    I know we've been hearing this a lot the last few years but this is the latest from Steven Speilberg, who predicts that the film industry is going to "implode":

    What if any films are you planning to go see this summer?

    I don't think I've been to a movie in at least 15 years.....

    I only go to the cinema 1 to 3x year at most even though I'd enjoy going more often. Usually, I just wait for them to come out on Netflix. The last one I saw at the theater was "Iron Man 3".

    I'm practically physically unable to watch a movie.

    I do know someone who goes to the movies frequently, or used to frequently...not because of the movie but because the A/C filtered the air and it helped with his allergies. He could also go to the beach for allergy relief.

    I am thinking of going to Woody Allen's latest film Blue Jasmine which so far is 82% fresh (on the Rotten Tomatoes tomato meter).

    This might really be good:

    I wouldn't be suprised if the doritos had a play in that. What's your daily intake like? Cool ranch or nacho cheese?
