About Time for a Movie Break

We have so much to be cinematically thankful for during this month of giving thanks. Our bright movie universe may be in for some dark days, but, rest assured, there is a lime(light) at the end of that sinister tunnel. And what a crowded tunnel it is! We have our resident aliens, animated birds and wayward senior citizens making room this weekend for time travelers floating through that aforementioned dark space, looking for big screen (and box office) success. Fortunately, SOME our attention seekers are also hero wannabes fighting for justice for all characters no matter how small their part.
Following the first (winning) round of the ever-popular “Ender’s Game,” the champions suspended in “Gravity” fight to “Free Birds” from uninspiring films while providing alternative fare (movie theater popcorn, anyone?) Not really caring about the fate of fowl (while possessing a foulness all his own), “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” giving lessons on how to get away with everything but murder to the troupe taking their “Last Vegas” vacation. Looking for his own spotlight is newcomer “Thor: (living in) The Dark World” lacking a bright, bigger-than-life screen, fighting for cosmic order while hoping for a much-needed break from all that bleakness.
As our heroes, heroines and questionable seniors do their part to entertain the masses, they find themselves asking, isn’t it “About Time” for a movie break?
