Summer just ain’t summer without spinning up a feature film on a school night.
And since CBS has dusted off its Sunday Night Movies, we figured we might as well contribute to their already-stellar lineup.
So pop some popcorn and snag those Reese’s Pieces because you’ll want to be well-nourished for this two-month movie marathon.
We originally published The Geeks’ Summer Movie List in our monthly newsletter “The Geek Beat.”
