Movies I want or need to see before I have to go back to work on January 3:

  • The Assassination of Richard Nixon (presuming “limited release” includes our area)
  • The Aviator
  • Blade: Trinity
  • Closer
  • House of Flying Daggers
  • The Incredibles
  • The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou
  • The Merchant of Venice (again, presuming “limited release” includes our area)
  • Ocean’s 12 (presuming I can catch “Ocean’s 11” on video first)

“Ray” would be on that list too, but the closest theater that’s still showing the film is up in the Amboys. “Phantom of the Opera” would be on the list, except that, as I’ve pointed out elsewhere, I’m not overly fond of “Phantom” in any medium – and that the actor cast to play the title character apparently can’t sing. (How is that even possible, anyway?) I may end up seeing it tomorrow night anyway, depending on how the group decides. (I’m hoping enough people come around and choose “The Life Aquatic”, but I’m not counting on it – in which case, I’m pulling for “The Aviator”.)

There are also a number of movies coming out in January that I want to see, so hopefully I can knock a bunch of the ones I listed above off the list over the next week or so.

So…who’s up for a day at the movies? =)
