A December to Remember (Question Mark)...

I see a lot of movies. Most years, the count is above sixty. For those of you who are good at math (not me), that's more than one a week. (You know, because there are fifty two weeks in a year.) For the past month and some change, I've suffered through a barren desert (I wish it had been a dessert) of terrible "movies"; wastes of film that studios have put out in their evil attempt at getting our money without putting forth actual effort. (With the exception of The Blind Side and Fantastic Mr. Fox.) But thank the Lord December is here.

Ahh December... That special season when studios release their oscar bait films (and I think there's some type of celebration of the birth of someone...) in their last desperate try to get a statue of some naked bald dude. You know what else is so great about December? It's when I make my list of Top 7 Movies of the Year. But because so many great movies are released this month, it's often a time when titles that were on the list all year get bumped at the last minute.

So I thought I'd make a list of the movies that I'm looking forward this month (that could potentially knock others off my list). Here they are in no particular order...







Anyone want to go to the movies...

I do!! I want to see all of these! I don't think I have been to 60 movies in the last 10 years...
Maybe that will be my resolution. It's time!

The draw for me to see Invictus is to hear Matt Damon's accent.

I'm dying to see The Princess and the Frog. (Disney. Duh.)

Avatar looks interesting but I'm not sure I'll see it.

Sherlock Holmes is an opening-day movie...I'll be there on Christmas!

The only reason I read the Lovely Bones was because I heard Peter Jackson was making the movie, so that's done.

And Nine...oh gosh...it looks it has everything I'd ever want in a single movie, including Daniel Day-Lewis. He's incredible.

And that's all I have to say.
