Are we alone in feeling like this summer’s box office was a bust? All the blockbusters were so boring that with the release of Blue Jasmine a few weeks back we had to face up to the fact that a New York socialite’s psychotic episode could steal Superman’s thunder–impressive and sad at the same time. Expect to see better cinematic offerings over the next few months as award season approaches, and if you plan on catching a flick this weekend, here are a few to look out for. BAM is rolling out a new film series on Sep. 6 all about surfing’s second cousin, the skateboard. Skateboarding is Not a Crime includes some of sport’s biggest moments from the 1960s to present day. Earlier this month, it was hard not to notice Lake Bell’s boobs on the cover of New York magazine’s Fall Fashion issue, but Brooklyn tattoo artist Scott Campbell’s better half proves she’s more than an anatomy lesson with her writer/director credits for In a World…, a Sundance darling and satirical comedy about the cut throat world of voice-over acting. And finally, nurse your hangover by going to see The World’s End, Edgar Wright’s science fiction comedy about five friends on an epic pub crawl (it is a British film after all).
