In just a few days, we'll kick off our 9th annual Junesploitation, our month-long celebration of exploitation and genre films! If social media is any indication, there are a lot of you who are excited about it this year. That's great!

How you interpret the connection is entirely up to you, which means if you have no interest in exploitation or genre movies that's ok and you can still join in! Just watch whatever you like that you feel fits with the day's theme. This month is supposed to be fun -- an excuse to watch movies every day and talk about them with one another. There are no "right" movies to watch. It's participating that gets you in the spirit, not watching a bunch of cheap, violent sleaze. That stuff is just a bonus.
