Plus, this year my brother and sister-and-law are getting remarried there right before the show. So, that's the movie (and experience) that I'm looking forward to most this Christmas.

I'd like to see Benjamin Button and Valkyrie, but I'll wait a while.



*Once I win the lottery, the Byrd is the first place I'll be donating money to.
Hey, I'll be there, too! My favorite theater in town, and a great Christmas tradition. Very cool about the wedding. I didn't know they did that.

I've always said if I won the lottery, I'd buy the Byrd and turn it into a true revival house. Maybe I'll get a Christmas miracle this year.

I've been looking forward to Benjamin Button for a long time now. Intrigued me when I first saw the teaser a while back and I think it'll be a great movie.

I also want to see Gran Torino and Bedtime Stories.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button- I'll be seeing this first priority either on Xmas or Friday morning.
I'll also prob. see Valkyrie this weekend.
I will wait for DVD of the Spirit cause it looks like shit even though its got an interesting cast and A few cool visuals.
I will never see Marley & me or bedtime Stories. They look like garbage.

Also its funny if you look at this poll cause even though Bedtime Stories is trailing dead last in the poll with nearly no one choosing it as their top pick that is what will more than likely top the box office.

I really don't think that'll be the case. Bedtime Stories is bound to do better business than Marley and Me.

I'll probably see all of them except for The Spirit (it looks lame, to me). The one I'm most interested in is Doubt.
Benjamin Button is one of those like Titanic or The Aviator...where you see it once at the cinema and then once it's on DVD, it's too long and daunting of a task to watch it all the way through at once.

From that list, Benjamin Button. The rest look horrible, though as a fan of The Spirit in it's comic strip form, I might check out the film version. I'll try to catch Doubt, Milk and Revolutionary Road, and will make it a point to go see The Wrestler.
