Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Nov 18.

Walk The Line. Currently under in limited release, everywhere Nov 18.

Rent. Nov 25.

Aeon Flux. Dec 2.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Dec 9.

Memoirs of a Geisha. Dec 9.

Brokeback Mountain (Ang Lee’s “Gay Cowboy Movie” which is sure to win lots of Oscars because it’s a “Gay Cowboy Movie”). Dec 9. And ya know, I have no problem with gay people…I just think that “Gay” and “Cowboy” should never be uttered in the same breath. It’s just wrong. Call me old-fashioned. Think John Wayne kissing Charles Bronson. See? Inherent wrongness. Even gay men are cursing me right now, “Bitch, what are you thinkin’ putting that in my head?”

What am I missing? Which one are you most looking forward to? For me it’s a tossup between Aeon Flux and Narnia, both of which have a lot to live up to. We’ll go see Rent just becasue we want to see MORE musicals brought to the screen. Have musicals ever NOT made money?
