Trailer Park: “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows” “The Next Three Days,” “Today’s Special”

It's the weekend before Thanksgiving and I guess you're supposed to be freezing pies or making a shopping list for Black Friday or something. But don't forget to make some time for yourself! Maybe that's not a great angle since, given an extra hour, most of us would sleep or catch up on TV…

Trailer Park: “Morning Glory,” “Unstoppable,” “Tiny Furniture,” “Skyline,” “Cool It”

We're getting to that fun part of fall when you've finally embraced the season and are about to enter Christmas lights and frigid cold territory. You're going to have to go shopping for presents eventually and sometimes the movies are a good break from those T. Rex claws you get from lugging around too many…

Trailer Park: “Due Date,” “127 Hours,” “Welcome To The Rileys,” “For Colored Girls,” “Megamind”

You spent last week partying, so you might as well give your liver a break and take it easy this weekend. Plus, you've got to start training for Thanksgiving and popcorn is kinda like a packing-peanut-esque expander for your tummy! I've been "training" for months and can already eat two pies in one sitting, so…

Trailer Park: “Saw 3D,” “Strange Powers,” “Monsters,” “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”

I know it's Halloween weekend and you've got costume parties to attend and sexy pirates to manhandle, but just in case you decide you need a break from all that teeth-rotting candy corn and ineffective fright tactics, you can always escape to the movies! Chances are, they're probably going to be empty anyway except…

Trailer Park: “Paranormal Activity 2,” “Hereafter,” “The Company Men,” “Inhale,” “Kalamity”

We're just about a week away from Halloween and the creepy movies are back in spades. I guess that watching "Paranormal Activity 2" would be cheaper than most haunted houses. And you don't have to get any hay on your butt, if you don't want to. Most of the other movies are about varying…

Trailer Park: “Red,” “Hereafter,” “Conviction,” “Jackass 3D,” “Marwencol,” “Carlos”

Every day closer to Halloween is another day that I avoid the candy aisles at the drug store so that I don't end up passed out in a bed of 600 tiny wrappers, drooling chocolate. If you're suffering from a similar pattern, there's nowhere better to hide than a movie theater. But they've got…

Trailer Park: “Life As We Know It,” “It’s Kind Of A Funny Story,” “Nowhere Boy,” “Secretariat”

I haven't been everywhere, but I think it's safe to say after all the bizarre weather patterns last week that it is finally fall now! It's also that wonderful month when drug stores turn into creepy candy cornucopias and the movie theater is flooded with horror movies. This week, there's actually a bunch of exciting…

Trailer Park: “The Social Network,” “Let Me In,” “Freakonomics,” “Case 39,” “Barry Munday”

As we're coming up on Halloween, the movie theaters are being flooded with horror movies. As if the world wasn't a scary enough place, for the next month, you can sit in a dark room with strangers and watch the blood splatter! Even the non-horror genres often present some terrifying truths, so really there's no…

Trailer Park: “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” “Howl,” “Waiting for ‘Superman,'” “Buried”

Well, it's officially fall now and along with the heavier foods and heavier sweaters come some heavier movies. Thank goodness, because I couldn't deal with another teenager falling in love on the beach. Now it's just a steady build-up to the bah-humbug movies of the season of chilled hearts. It's time for some self-reflection and…

Trailer Park: “Easy A,” “The Town,” “Catfish,” “Leaves of Grass,” “Jack Goes Boating,” “The Freebie”

We are merely days away from autumn and thank goodness for that, because along with the sweaters and leaves comes some quality movies. This might be the first time ever that I want to see every single movie that is coming out (except for the creepy animated wolf movie I conveniently left off of the…

Trailer Park: “The Romantics,” “Resident Evil: Afterlife,” “I’m Still Here,” “Heartbreaker”

There's something so magical about the week after long weekends. Like, when you wake up on Saturday, you feel like there's another work day left but instead you get to do whatever the hell you want! And because there's basically another weekend, a day early, you should reward yourself with a movie. This week's movie…

Trailer Park: “Going The Distance,” “The American,” “Machete,” “The Winning Season”

It's a shockingly awesome week for movie-going. Maybe it's a back-to-school gift to the kiddies? Or an end-of-summer peacemaker? Maybe I'm just in a really good mood and these are actually craptastic movies. Whatever is going on, I'm into it. This week's movies also cover a huge spectrum of the human experience so no matter…

Trailer Park: “Takers,” “The Last Exorcism,” “The Tillman Story,” “Daniel And Ana,” “Centurion”

It's that dark time of year when you know the summer's end is just around the bend. And of course the movies this week are particularly bleak. There's a lot of robbing, murdering, blood, death, possession, and other unspeakable things. I'm not saying you shouldn't go to the movies because it's going to be a…

Trailer Park: “The Switch,” “Lottery Ticket,” “Vampires Suck,” “Piranha 3D”

We're just a few weeks away from September, which is terrifying because where the hell did the time go? But also nice because all the hooligans will be back in school and, at least between the hours of 8 and 3 p.m., the streets will be safe. And the movie theaters and malls will be…

Trailer Park: “Eat Pray Love,” “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” “The Expendables,” “Animal Kingdom”

I know it's gotten really hard to get to the movie theater, because there's pay-per-view, DVDs and the amazingness of Netflix, which make it possible to watch dozens of movies for the price of one in the theater. So, I won't blame you if you don't go. But you should probably know that every time…

Trailer Park: “The Other Guys,” “Step Up 3D,” “Twelve,” “Middle Men”

Somehow the summer has already started slipping through our fingers but until it's all gone, it's really important to give yourself a break! And there are really few better ways to get that than to curl up in a movie theater ... I mean, assuming that island vacation is not within your budget. This week,…

Trailer Park: “Dinner For Schmucks,” “Charlie St. Cloud,” “The Extra Man,” “The Dry Land”

It's a very rare thing that I want to see all the movies that are coming out, especially since there are some seriously craptastic things being produced these days. And as this summer fades in to autumn's chill, you're running out of time to take advantage of the long days and sweat-soaked nights. Spend a…

Trailer Park: “Salt,” “Ramona And Beezus,” “Life During Wartime,” “Countdown To Zero”

When you're still in school, the summer seems to arch into this glorious never-ending sunset; while in adulthood, it's more like a few months where it's a bit hotter and maybe you drink slightly more often. This is why you have to take miniature vacations for yourself, despite the fact that you might not have…

Trailer Park: “Inception,” “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” “The Concert,” “Kisses,” “Valhalla Rising”

Now that the summer has really set in, you're probably changing three times a day because you've already sweat through your last ensemble. If you're like me, you're psyched for fall when all the ragamuffins are back in school and you can pull your sweaters out of their moth balls. But right now, it's too…

Trailer Park: “Predators,” “Winnebago Man,” “Despicable Me,” “The Girl Who Played with Fire”

I guess it's been a crazy heatwave in the rest of the country, while it's a chilly 64 degrees out here in Los Angeles. So, while I go to movies two to three times a week because I'm addicted to them, you guys are probably desperate for an escape from the heat. But I shouldn't…
