Wow! That pretty much sums up my opinion of your excellent Summer Movie Preview issue (#328, May 24). Not only do I want to see the movies on my must-see list, but films that I was iffy about — The Frighteners, The Rock, Phenomenon, The Fan — I now want to check out, thanks to your no-nonsense coverage.

Thank you for your preview of this summer’s movies. Now I know what I’ll be doing for entertainment: I’ll be reading a book.
Once again you’ve made me a happy subscriber. The Summer Movie Preview was excellent; in fact, this was one of the year’s best issues so far! A few weeks back I was tempted to buy another magazine’s summer-movie roundup but decided to wait for yours. Thanks for making it worth the wait.

While I loved your Summer Movie Preview, seeing Sandra Bullock’s impression of the Marlboro Man on your cover, I have to say that the tobacco industry enjoyed it more.
A B+? I can’t believe this! Ken Tucker wrote a whole article praising The Drew Carey Show, comparing it to the likes of Friends and Roseanne. Not a single negative comment was made about what I consider to be the funniest show on television. So why the mediocre grade? Try taking lessons on grading from Mr. Kotter!
Thank you for your touching Encore on Gilda Radner. It was a warm, wonderful piece of journalism. I’ve been watching Saturday Night Live since 1975, and of all the actors who’ve come and gone, she was the best! You brought me close to her again, and when I read your piece, the laughter and tears came flowing.
I’m glad to be informed that Bonnie and Clyde is on laserdisc, but to suggest the film is not worth watching because ”the once-controversial violence now seems like no big deal” defies all reason.
Thank you for printing what is possibly the most embarrassing press release ever written. Is Brian Austin Green out of his mind? I believe he has been trapped on a soundstage surrounded by ”yes” people for too long.

It was Gilda Radner’s character Roseanne Roseannadanna who popularized the phrase ”It’s always something” (Encore); it was Brian Kelly who played the father in the television series Flipper (Movies); and The Arrival is David Twohy’s feature directorial debut (Preview).
