LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

S ure, we could yack on and on about this summer's movies. (This, of course, is the place to do just that). But no--this week Tucson Weekly's Stacy Richter goes off on this summer's film trailers and how they rank. Why not? Sometimes the trailers beat the hell out of the actual movie, quality-wise. We're not sure what that says about 1) the film industry or 2) the film trailer industry.

Be sure to check out the two interviews this week. Don Roos--the maker of the new acclaimed comedy, "The Opposite of Sex" talks about artistic control and getting the movie he wanted to make, made. Howard Rheingold is truly a new media superstar. While he has seemed to celebrate the new 'net society through his books, Virtual Reality and The Virtual Community he also has an near-Luddite side to him too. Rheingold's interview has him tackling television, consumer choices, and accelerated technology advances.

Okay, NOW we'll yack about this summer's movies. You'll find reviews of the "X-Files: Fight the Future", "Six Days, Seven Nights, "Kurt and Courtney", "Can't Hardly Wait", Italian horror films, and a bunch more. And don't forget the Movie Guru column either.
