    What are your favorite "Summer" movies?

    Stand By Me is one of my all time favorite movies. Not just because the four friends were about my age when it came out, or that I grew up in the Northwest and spent time camping in those forests, or because it’s an awesome Stephen King short made into an even more awesome movie. It’s a wonderful coming-of-age/adventure story told as the boys struggle with adolescent fears, social status and bullies in small town USA. Still the benchmark for narration – train dodging too. That’s two for flinching!”

    American Graffiti – “Where we’re you in ’62?” Hmm, not alive yet. Still, nothing quite like cruzin’ around town one last time before heading off to college (or before school starts in the fall), of course I had to do it in a beat-up heap not a ’32 Ford coupe or a ’55 Chevy.

    The Sandlot is one of those timeless movies that never gets old. Yeah, the acting wasn’t all that great, not the best special effects either - but the story makes up for that. Who hasn’t had a hard time after moving to a new city, trying to make friends, and adopting the locals passion (baseball) – before knocking your stepdad’s autographed Babe Ruth baseball into the neighbors yard?

    "Point Break"....Dude!
    Surfer/Action movie starring Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves.
    A band of surfers rob banks dressed as the ex-presidents and a young undercover FBI agent gets involved in the action.
    Great surfing/skydiving scenes!

    Definately American Graffiti, I've always loved that movie. My sister was just married and living away from home for the first time in Atwater/Turlock Ca. where it was filmed, we spent that whole summer watching the filming and trying to get in the movie.

    Dazed & Confused is a favorite too, reminds me of summer as a teenager.

    What about the original Gone in 60 seconds? Nothing like a 45 minute car chase, I mean wreck.
