Holiday Movie Season

Well, I can't wait to see Harry Potter. I know I'll be seeing it with Emily, and I hope that we'll be seeing it over Thanksgiving weekend. Laura and I also have plans for a movie that weekend. Holiday movies also mean Oscar bait time. Here's my glimpse at what is coming out soon...

Love and Other Drugs -- Pharmaceutical sales rep Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway love story (Nov 24th). I'll be seeing this.

Burlesque -- Cher and Christina Aguilera musical (Nov 24th).
Tangled -- Disney's animated Rapunzel (Nov 24th).

Black Swan -- Natalia Portman is a ballerina, it may not sound like it but this is supposed to be a real mind trip. And is anticipated to have Oscar nominations (Dec 3rd).

The Tourist -- Have you seen the trailer for this? Hotness! Just knowing it stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie is probably enough said but the Venice location and caper/thriller feel add to it (Dec 10th).

The Fighter -- Mark Walberg stars as the boxer and he has been working to get this movie made for years. There were talks of Matt Damon playing his brother at one point (oh the Boston hotness that brings to my mind) but after seeing how Christian Bale looks in the film, it wouldn't have been the most sexy role for Damon. Plus he has all those 30 Rocks spots to shoot, right?! Amy Adams also co-stars as Walberg's girlfriend (Dec 10th).

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader -- The third in the series of the CS Lewis books (Dec 10th).

Tron: Legacy -- I really only remember Tron from tv but I still really want to see this. It looks badass. Jeff Bridges is back and the plot and space between movies seems well written (Dec 17th).

Yogi Bear -- Was pretty horrified to see clips of this. Its a mix of live action and Yogi and Boo Boo are animated. Dan Aykroyd does a good Yogi voice but Justin Timberlake as Boo Boo?! What? (Dec 17th).

How Do You Know -- James L Brooks wrote and directed (As Good as It Gets, Terms of Endearment, Spanglish) this movie starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson and Jack Nicholson (Dec 17th). I'll be seeing this one too.

Country Strong -- This is the Gwyneth Paltrow as a country singer movie. As some of you may recall, the Duets soundtrack played constantly in my ford escort for a good year or so (Dec 22nd). Looking forward to it.

Gulliver's Travels -- Gets an update with Jack Black (Dec 22nd).
Little Fockers -- There needed to be a third one? Well, here's to an open mind and the right mood. Barbra Streisand and Dustin Hoffman are back as Ben Stiller's parents, though I think its more of a cameo thing (Dec 22nd).

True Grit -- The Coen Brothers remake of the John Wayne Western classic. Jeff Bridges stars as the one-eyed Rooster Cogburn (Dec 22nd).

Blue Valentine -- Tough drama of the marriage between Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams. Harvey Weinstein is appealing the MPAA's NC17 rating of the flick. This one has had Oscar buzz from the get-go and the rating may effect the likelihood (Dec 31st).
