    I do want to see Labor Day with Kate Winslet, I mentioned that in the previous thread I think.

    Why is the next Paranormal Activity coming out in January? When a new one didn't come out around Halloween I figured they were done with the franchise.

    December 18th - Her - Drama with Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson and Olivia Wilde
    December 20th - Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

    December 25th - August: Osage County - Comedy drama with Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Benedict Cumberbatch, Margo Martindale, Chris Cooper and Sam Shepard
    December 25th - Grudge Match - Comedy with Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Alan Arkin, Kevin Hart, Jon Bernthal and Kim Basinge

    December 27th - Lone Survivor - War drama with Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch and Eric Bana

    February 28th - Non-Stop - Thriller with Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore

    There are four or so in January/February that look so awful that I almost highlighted them in red to warm you all to avoid them! But I had to re-do the poll about four times, so I was a bit flabbergasted at having difficulties and forgot about that idea.

    August: Osage County actually doesn't look very good to me, but it has such a great cast, I'm going to give it a shot. And I can't believe I actually want to see a Sylvester Stallone movie, but I found the trailer to be both funny and charming. Not sure about Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, but even if it's not great, I can ogle Chris Pine for 90 minutes. And when I found out that Liam Neeson was doing another early-in-the-year thriller, my first thought was but the trailer looks quite good actually, so he's sucked me in again!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Only Robocop holds my interest. I am on the fence about seeing Pompeii because I loved the first movie and am worried the remake may not measure up.

    Her-interesting premise. Joaquin Phoenix can read the phone book, silently lol, and I would watch- I like him that much.
    American Hustle-can't quite figure out what it's about but the sleazy 70s/80s look is appealing. So is Jeremy Renner. :-) added bonus! Michael Pena!
    Have a nice day!

    Of most interest to me:

    Walter Mitty -- I loved the short story, and I think it's timeless so I'm not bothered by the modernization of it. Stiller is nothing like the Mitty I imagined when I read the story, but I'm okay with that.

    Her -- love the premise, love the cast.

    Inside Llewyn Davis -- Coen bros + folk music = yes please!

    Labor Day -- I'll see Winslet in just about anything

    Pompeii -- mostly because I was just there

    Osage County is a maybe. I love this cast, but I've been disappointed before with plays turned to movies. However this particular play is less stagey than, say, Doubt, or The History Boys, so I think it will make better film material.

    Her--sounds interesting and Walter Mitty because a friend works for the studio and keeps pushing it.

    Also the Monuments Men, the cast sounds great.

    Just watched the trailer for Saving Mr Banks. It looks like a very feel-good Disney kind of film, and sometimes I'm in the mood for that. Plus the Thompson-Hanks combo could be great. So I'll probably try to fit that one in over Christmas.

    I really want to see American Hustle, Her & Walter Mitty. Monuments Men looks interesting as well.

    ETA: Hadn't heard of Labor Day but having seen the promo now, it looks fascinating.

    I am surprised Dallas Buyers Club didn't get a nomination for Best Feature. Is it not a very good movie? I am planning on seeing it tomorrow night although even I admit I am mote interested in the performance than the film itself.

    I saw Gravity on Sunday with some friends. It was wonderful!! The pacing was great, like the perfect roller coaster with some times with things moving at a brisk pace and then WHOOSH something really big happens. This happens a number of times at just the right intervals to make it the perfect ride. One of the big scenes towards the ends had me practically curled up in a ball and I realized that I should just relax, it's just a movie and if I make too much of a pretzel out of myself, I might get hurt! Highly recommend.

    And to finish up with a few comments from the end of the previous thread:

    While "Nebraska" should be a sure bet for a Bruce Dern Oscar nomination for lead actor, I'm going to have to give June Squibb (who plays Dern's wife) a 50-50 shot at a supporting actress nomination as well.
    Looks like she's a step closer with the Independent Spirit Awards nomination.

    1) Wolf of Wall Street
    2) The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
    3) Anchorman 2

    And I didn't need to Google any of them.
    You're hired, peibeck!!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Of the new movies listed for the upcoming months, I'm interested mostly in about x of them. The Anchorman movie should be great regardless of the script just because the cast is just so ginormous, you won't want to blink in case you miss somebody! Has there ever been a movie with SO many famous people in it?

    I had seen the trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty at the theatre and even if the movie itself is bad, it looks like I'll enjoy it just for the scenery/cinematography. It looks beautiful.

    The LEGO Movie trailer looks weird and stupid and quite possibly really enjoyable! It's got about seven million views on youtube, too! I never saw the original RoboCop, this new one looks like it might be interesting...of a much higher calibre than the original I'm guessing. My apologies if there are any ubers of the original that I have just offended.

    Saving Mr. Banks looks quite dry and humourless, disappointing because I really like Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson. The Nut Job looks like good silly fun though.

    That Awkward Moment...About Last Night...Endless Love....Vampire Academy...are those the awful ones you were talking about, PeterG?

    Pompeii has the most boring trailer I've seen in recent years. So often trailers give away so much of the movie. With this trailer, not only have I no better idea of what the movie is about, but I also have no extra interest in the movie, either. And I agree, the Liam Neeson movie looks like a re-treat....but nobody does such high quality re-treas as Mr. Neeson! Plus this one has the wondrous Julianne Moore on board!

    Hobbit It's gonna be epic! (Even with all the disappointment this year, hope springs eternal )

    I'll watch:
    Anchorman2 - because I love Steve Carell and to a certain extent Will Ferrel
    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty - As someone who lives in her head most of the time, I think I can relate to Mitty Plus, Ben Stiller is awesome.
    Hercules - I wonder why they even bother calling the character Hercules? The story looks nothing like the Hercules myth
    Jack Ryan - looks intriguing.
    Robocop - don't really have high expectation for this one, so at least I won't be disappointed

    As always, Thanks for all the work Peter

    From my ever-shrinking collection here's a two thumbs up keeper:"Jean de Florette" and its companion "Manon of the Spring." Two grrrreat films weave a tragic tale of obsession, greed, deception, unbridled optimism, love, hate, compassion, and a stunning final resolution. Starring Yves Montand, Gerard Depardieu, Daniel Auteuil, and the stunningherself Emmanuelle Beart. Haunting musical theme. Incredible landscape. The v big question of water. And rabbits. Eys. MUST SEE. Higllllly recommend.

    And if you like Daniel Auteuil and this kind of thematic material I also highly recommend "The Welldigger's Daughter."
    Have a nice day!
