Dim the Lights. The Show’s About to Begin. (Drama Edition)

I want to see that!

The year is winding down, dear readers. While the season is usually spent visiting friends and family, wrapping gifts, and shoveling massive amounts of snow, there are things we must not forget. The most important, by far? Movies. Yes, you heard me. What? Did you think I was going to say love, peace, and joy? No. It’s movies. The year is almost over and that means the Oscar race is heating up. How will we know which movies to pick on our home-made Oscar ballot, if we don’t see any movies this holiday season? Don’t wait until the last-minute. Trust me. It’s not fun. Come Oscar night, you’ll be rallying which movie you want to win; instead of contemplating which movies to rent on DVD. We must go to that moderately sized theatre on the corner and spend our available sleeping hours basking in the glow of that projector. It’s a must. There is an overwhelming amount of movies that just have to be seen. You heard me. Go. Go now. Wait. Stop. Watch these trailers first.

Blue Valentine

Ryan Gosling. Enough said.

    Blue Valentine looks interesting, but that’s probably because a) there’s some mystery behind they story in the trailer (aside from the whole romance-thing) and b) I thought the trailer was cute, with him singing and playing what sounds like a ukelele. I’ll probably see Narnia since my grandfather enjoys going to movies like that (so I’ll tag along). I can’t say I’m a big fan of westerns, but the trailer for True Grit does look good.

    I have no idea what movies are coming out next year, aside from the next Harry Potter and Twilight films. No wait, that’s a lie; my memory just recalled The Green Lantern and The Green Hornet (heh, both have green in the title). Not sure if I’ll spend my green on ’em, though.

    1. Yes, Blue Valentine is the one I want to see, probably the most. It’s Ryan Gosling. What more can you say? The singing in the trailer was adorable! It does look like a mystery and romance. I love those kinds of movies. The trailer kind of reminds me between a mix of 500 days of Summer and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Two of my favorite movies).

      I love Narnia, but I’ll probably wait to see that one on DVD. It’s not one of those that I have to see right away in the theatre. I know. I hate most westerns too, but True Grit does look pretty good. Of course I can’t wait to see Harry Potter and Breaking Dawn next year, and Green Lantern looks okay. I’ll probably go just to see Ryan Reynolds shirtless πŸ˜‰ There’s also Hangover 2, Pirates 4 (What’s with all the sequels?), Water for Elephants, and Bel Ami. I’m thinking next year is going to be good for movies. πŸ™‚

    Blue Valentine looks like it could be one of those heart-wrenching romances, what with all the moments of romantic bliss followed by tears and hugging and the “silent drama” :). I do like Ryan in these emotional kind of roles (a la The Notebook) so i will mos def be watching it.

    Of course Narnya just went and excited my little childhood heart. When the 1st one came out I was so excited because even though I didn’t remember the story, I remembered how I felt as a child watching the tv series and that feeling just bubbled up inside me.

    True Grit seems interesting. I am not a fan of westerns either but a good movie is a good movie and The Quick and the Dead and 3:10 to Yuma are two of my fav movies. Ever.

    I tried watching 500 days… and Eternal Sunshine… but I couldn’t get into them. I guess I have to get past more than the 1st 10 minutes πŸ™‚ They got rave reviews so I ma try and watch em again and yes if for nothing else Ryan Reynolds shirtless is a pretty good reason to go watch a movie. Scratch that, Ryan Reynolds… anything.

    1. 500 Days of Summer and Eternal Sunshine are not your typical conventional dramas. There are a lot of time jumps in both movies. Sometimes it’s hard to watch that kind of back and forth movie, but these two are amazing. Eternal Sunshine has to be in my top 10 favorite movies of all time. It’s utterly fantastic.

      Hahaha! Yes. Ryan Reynolds in anything. Especially if he’s shirtless πŸ˜‰ Talk about movies coming out next year! He’s supposed to do a movie with Bradley Cooper. Their going to have to mop me off the floor for that one. I don’t think my poor little heart can take that much beauty in one movie. lol πŸ™‚
