Thanksgiving – Yes, No, Maybe

Ah, my “Yes, No, Maybe” post.  Due to computer issues I have done only one, but now it is back.  Thanksgiving week is going to be busy, and I am not going to be able to see any of these films until after the weekend–I’ll be out-of-town.  But if you can, go for it.

YES – 11/23/11 – The Muppets

Does this really need an explanation?

YES – 11/23/11 – Hugo

There are a number of reasons why I plan to watch this film:  it’s based on a very good and unique graphic novel; it has a very Adventures of Baron Munchausen vibe; and it is not your typical Martin Scorsese film.

NO – 11/18/11 – The Twilight Saga:  Breaking Dawn-Part 1

Oh so many reasons.  Vampires out in the sun and that sparkle.  Both Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner in the same film.  This is Part 1.

MAYBE – 11/25/11 – The Artist

A Black & White silent film released in 2011.  What’s not to love?  The main reason why it is a maybe is because it may not be out long enough to see it in a theatre.

September – Yes, No, Maybe

So, in advance of each month I am going to post my Yes, No, and Maybe picks for the month.  I will try my hardest to make Yes movies.  I will pray for No movies to crash and burn.  Maybe movies?  Maybe I’ll make it to them, maybe I won’t.  The order in which the films appear in each category are based only on release date and not my overall expectation for them.

YES – 09/20/11 – Pearl Jam Twenty

I’m a big fan of Rock Documentaries.

YES – 09/23/11 – Moneyball

I was sold when I saw the Trailer.  (Also, I like Baseball movies)

YES – 09/30/11 – 50/50

A comedy about cancer starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt?  Who am I kidding, a movie starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt?  I’m always there.  I will also probably be there by myself.

YES – 09/30/11 – Dream House

I didn’t know anything about this film until I read about it in Entertainment Weekly.  But now that I have seen the trailer and poster–which I love–I am there.  I will be there by myself, but I will be there.  Does this mean I am going to do a solo double header on the same day?

NO – 09/23/11 – Abduction

Taylor Lautner cannot act.  He may be pleasing to the eye, but he can’t carry a movie.

MAYBE – 09/16/11 – Straw Dogs

If I do go watch this movie, I’m pretty sure I will be by myself.  Which means that would be three solo movies in September.  This is a remake of a Sam Pekinpah film starring Dustin Hoffman.  Normally a remake would send me running the other way, but based on the comments from Rene Rodriguez of The Miami Herald, I may be at the theatre.
