Kudos to you and your Summer Movie Preview. I enjoyed it immensely. The month-by-month guide to the movies was a good way of highlighting the best movies of the summer. I’ve subscribed to your magazine now for 2 1/2 years and have yet to be disappointed.
I’ve been a subscriber from day one, and I look forward every year to your Summer Movie Preview. You’ve outdone yourselves. Great job!

John McTiernan should have thought of the people of Oklahoma City when he released Die Hard With a Vengeance one month after the April 19 bombing. I love the Die Hard movies, normally. And my husband is a big Bruce Willis fan. But right now I and many Oklahomans can’t stomach it.
