This Winter’s Crop of Movies

Kate and I used to see lots of movies in the theater. It’s an outing that we really enjoy. Things, however, have changed a bit with the coming of Mr. Simon. First of all, there are the usual wide array of challenges that come with bringing a baby to the movies. Then there’s also the issue that we’re on a tighter budget and don’t really want to spend lots and lots of money at the movies. So, to make a long story short (too late), we’re cutting back.

Having said that, there are LOTS of movies coming out this winter that I want to see. Kate shares my interest in some, but not all, of these movies. At any rate, we’re going to see one of these movies on December 15. But that’s probably the only one that we’ll see in the theater. The movies that I’m interested in include:

So now comes the challenge. Even though we’re reducing the number of movies we see in the theater, we are already planning on seeing one of these movies. Can you guess which one? And why? Use the comments!

  1. So many good movies… Vicky & I torn too.

    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe are at the very top of our list. Memoirs of a Geisha and Walk the Line are just below it. Given the price of movies, our already hectic schedules, and the holidays, I think we’ll only be able to see one movie in the theatre. Two tops. The rest will go in our Netflix queue.

    Anyhoo… given our conversation last week, I’m guessing “Rent” just because you asked John & I. Personally, I’d recommend Harry Potter or Chronicles of Narnia tho’. 🙂

  2. Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. No other course, no other way, no day but today.

    Best memory from my wedding rehearsal, singing “525,600 Minutes” at the tops of our lungs in the chapel. Guess which one I’m seeing!

  3. Here’s a clue people: Dec. 15 is my birthday. So we’re probably going to see what I want to see and not what Pat wants to see ;).

  4. Hmmmm… I was going to guess King Kong because all of the others will have already ben out for at least a week by the 15th… but I hadn’t connected the birthday dots. So now I think Chronicles of Narnia because that seems very Kate.

    If it weren’t so cold and rainy out, I’d already be in line somewhere for Rent, because I’m that excited about it. But I’ll definitely be there on Wednesday. And I’ll be knocking down the doors for Memoirs on December 9. Woowoo.

  5. Hmm, I’d think Chronicles of Narnia because you’d be interested in seeing how they did the CGI to create Aslan. How’d I do? Although the cinematography and mise en scene (I know, that’s what film class gets ya) of Geisha looks breathtaking. Who’s sitting Simon-isn’t the theatre too crowded to sneak him in?

  6. Ken and Carrie (I think – was that a guess Carrie, or just an observation?) get the prize. Of course, there is no prize, so nobody really wins anything.

    Rent is definitely the movie that we’ll be seeing on Kate’s birthday. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is definitely the topmost movie on my list this holiday season, but it will have to wait until video.

    My mother is chomping at the bit for the opportunity to babysit Simon, and is already holding her day of fun with her grandson over my father’s head, since he’ll be at work an unable to share in the babysitting duties. 🙂

  7. “Day of fun”?? Won’t it be more like three hours of fun?

    And I’m DYING to see Rent! I have the play mostly memorized ;).
