Rest and Cinematic Revelry

Poet William Wordsworth once simply stated, “Rest and be thankful.” Poetic words this day before giving thanks, as our movie theaters premier stories Hollywood studio executives can only hope will inspire thankfulness. Our spirits will be far from “Frozen” during these warmhearted holidays, as animation in all its ice-covered wonder promises to charm children and the child within while sending our “Free Birds” on an extended vacation (I hear the southern region known as eventual DVD release is both liberating and lovely). An otherwise gloomy “Thor: (feels inspired to leave) The Dark World” when presented with such brilliant cinematic light. Even the vengeance-seeking “Old Boy” is feeling young at heart when exposed to such carefree, colorful characters. Of course, the aging lad can pick up lots of tips on growing old profitably, as well as traveling in flashy style, thanks to the gang taking that never-ending “Last Vegas” vacation, who provide some not-so-good advice acquired during their supposed twilight years. The sun is far from setting on the always-grateful crew participating in the “Hunger Games: (who are) Catching Fire” of the blockbuster, record-breaking variety. Also winning the fiery box-office battle is “The Best Man (who is ready for the best) Holiday” following his well-received reunion. The “Delivery Man” is dancing to the beat of his own drummer while anticipating an upcoming visit from Santa Claus that is sure to challenge his delivery methods as well as his family values.
Interested in aging, animation or arson-fueled annihilation? Have a hunger movie-style popcorn alone can’t satisfy? A leisurely outing to the local multiplex this long, holiday weekend promises to please even the “Grinches” among us.
What movie-loving heart wouldn’t be grateful?
