Haven't seen Dreamgirls yet and Children of Men doesn't get to me until next week but:

The Holiday--Was not expecting this at all. Maybe it's my love of 19th century British literature (I was distracted during the whole scene in Jude Law's study staring at the great hardbound copy of Tennet of Wildfell Hall) or maybe my recent fascination with old movies (especially starring Greer Garson and Irene Dunne) but this just worked for me on nearly every level. Take out the hideous Cameron Diaz and replace her with an actual earth woman with acting skills and this is the best chick flick in a long time.


Night at the Museum--Everyone at RottenTomatoes who is giving this a negative review needs to be removed from the gene pool permanently. Seriously, no multiplying for these idiots. Best comedy of the year. Not a dull moment or poorly done scene. Van Dyke, Rooney and Cobbs were tremendous in their supporting roles. I'll definately be seeing this again and buying it as soon as the DVD is out.

Added to the already quality films like Charlmaotte's Web and Rocky Balboa and the Christmas fare this year may save the movie year.
