Trailer Park: “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” “The Last Airbender,” “The Kids Are All Right”

Happy 4th of July weekend, bubbelehs! I know you’ve probably got BBQs, drinking, and fireworks to attend to, but after all that hot summer fun partying, you’ll probably need a rest. And where better to chill that sunburn than in a dark and chilly movie theater? This week, the “Twilight” saga continues with “Eclipse.” Also,…

Trailer Park: “Knight And Day,” “Grown Ups,” “Wild Grass,” “8: The Mormon Proposition”

It’s getting to that point in the summer where it’s almost too hot to not go to the movies. But unfortunately, all this week’s movies suck. Just kidding! Seeing if you’re paying attention. If you’re in a movie-going mood, you can go action adventure with “Knight and Day,” funny and crass with “Grown Ups,” confusing…

Trailer Park: “Cyrus,” “Toy Story 3,” “The Killer Inside Me,” “I Am Love,” “Stonewall Uprising”

It’s been a pretty intense week, with all the basketball and soccer madness causing men to screech and riot in the streets. I have trouble maintaining that kind of enthusiasm for longer than the time it takes to eat an eight-course meal, but can respect those who can bring it. I can also get enthusiastic…

Trailer Park: “The A-Team,” “The Karate Kid,” “Winter’s Bone,” “Joan Rivers: A Piece Of Work”

If you have men (or soccer enthusiast women) in your life, chances are you’re going to want to escape from the constant World Cup noise. There’s no better escape from the heat, yelling, and ball-pinging than an air-conditioned movie theater. But for some reason, instead of releasing a bunch of chick flicks to compensate, half…

Trailer Park: “Get Him To The Greek,” “Splice,” “Killers,” “Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Undead”

It’s barely summer, but it’s already getting to the point where people are sweating the second they step outside. And for me, inside, since I refuse to blight my window with an air conditioning unit. It’s this time of the year that I remember why movie theaters are so great—air conditioning! Thankfully, there are some…

Trailer Park: “Sex And The City 2,” “Prince of Persia,” “Survival Of The Dead,” “Agora,” “Micmacs”

I know you’ve got a lot on your plate these days, but there are some serious movies coming out this week and you need a vacation from your life! You’ve been hearing about “Sex and the City 2” for months and months now and regardless of my feelings, a good number of women and gay…

Trailer Park: “Shrek Forever After,” “Solitary Man,” “Daddy Longlegs”

We’re exactly one month away from the first day of summer and if you, like I, haven’t realized this, we might have a lot of spring cleaning, spring flinging, and summer preparing to do. I guess that means you’re supposed to organize your closet, make out with a dude and paint your toenails? And because…

Trailer Park: “Robin Hood,” “Letters To Juliet,” “Just Wright,” “Women Without Men”

Another weekend. Another two days to sleep in, brunch, party and mourn the upcoming work week. Hooray! I know it seems like the hours fly by much more quickly on your days off, but just in case you want to spend a few in an air-conditioned movie theater, there is a good mix of movie…

Trailer Park: “Iron Man 2,” “Mother And Child,” “Please Give,” “The Good Heart,” “Babies”

There’s no reason to plead with you to see a movie this week because for once, there is a whole lot of awesomeness, coming to a theater near you. If you’re not planning on seeing “Iron Man 2,” you are going to feel super left out at the water cooler on Monday. It’s simply un-America…

Trailer Park: “Furry Vengeance,” “Nightmare On Elm Street,” “Paper Man,” “The Human Centipede”

Sure it’s springtime, love is in the air and the birds are singing. But do you know what else is in the air? Pollen. And the bees are singing too … kinda. You might fall in love frolicking in the park, but you might also fall in love in a dark movie theater, sitting next…

Trailer Park: “The Back-up Plan,” “The Losers,” “Oceans”

Every year, I miss Earth Day. I mean, I do my part to only bring re-usable bags to the grocery store and have a water canteen thingy, but I feel like I should be picking up trash at the beach or composting or something. But if you’re like me and didn’t do anything, you get…

Trailer Park: “Kick-Ass,” “Death At A Funeral,” “Exit Through The Gift Shop,” “The Joneses”

I don’t care what plans you had this weekend, you’ve got to cancel them because the movies are calling. They’re saying things like, “Sure movies are expensive but they’re a helluva lot cheaper than the equivalent amount of alcohol it would take to create the same level of distraction from your life.” Movies are smart…

Trailer Park: “Date Night,” “When You’re Strange,” “After.Life,” “Breaking Upwards,” “La Mission”

Sure, it’s super pretty outside and you could be hiking, frolicking through meadows of spring flowers, or lying on the beach. But then you’d look like you’re stuck in a commercial for anti-depressants. I don’t recommend depression, but isn’t it nice to just sit in the dark sometimes, letting salty popcorn dissolve on your tongue…

Trailer Park: “The Last Song,” “Clash Of The Titans,” “Vincere,” “Bluebeard,” “Thorn In The Heart”

It’s Easter and Passover weekend, so if you’re religious, you’re probably hoarding Easter eggs or subsisting on matzo. I like to pretend that I am both Jewish and Christian, so my diet involves melted Cadbury eggs over almond macaroons. I’m for sure going to hell. But since there’s still time for us to be forgive…

Trailer Park: “Hot Tub Time Machine,” “Chloe,” “How To Train Your Dragon,” “The Exploding Girl”

You have no excuse to not go to the movies this weekend. Did you know that on average, Americans are only seeing five movies a year?!?! How do you even pick five movies a year—I want to see at least five movies a month and am heartbroken when I have to save one to watch…

Trailer Park: “The Bounty Hunter,” “Greenberg,” “The Runaways”

This Sunday is the first day of spring and, thanks to daylight savings, there are at least two more hours in your day. And what are you going to do with all that extra time? Go see a movie! Yay! This week actually offers a decent selection that should get you motivated for springtime …

Trailer Park: “Remember Me,” “Green Zone,” “She’s Out Of My League,” “Our Family Wedding”

Sure, the Oscars are over and the best movies of 2009 have been awarded little gold men, but it’s 2010 now and we get a whole new score sheet of movies to love and hate. And so you don’t lose next year’s Oscar bets, you’d better start watching them now. I’m not necessarily saying any…

Trailer Park: “Alice In Wonderland,” “Brooklyn’s Finest,” “The Yellow Handkerchief,” “The Good Guy”

What better weekend to go to the movies is there than Oscar weekend, when magical films, which have allowed us to briefly escape our lives, are honored for their role in our sanity and entertainment? This week, you can follow Alice down the rabbit’s hole with “Alice in Wonderland,” feel like a badass with “Brooklyn’…

Trailer Park: “The Crazies,” “Cop Out,” “A Prophet”

I’m starting to notice that certain types of movies come out at certain times of the year. Family and blockbuster movies all wedge their way into that blissful time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, sappy relationship movies get Valentine’s Day, and all the scary/political/cop/insanity movies come around that depressing end-of-winter-still-no-hope-for-spring time. As if we have nothing…

Trailer Park: “Shutter Island,” “The Ghost Writer,” “Red Riding Trilogy”

We’re getting into those dark, drudging days of winter when all you want to do is hole up with a blanket with a warm drink and wait for spring. If humans were really as smart as we’re supposed to be, we would have initiated mandatory winter hibernation like the bears. But since we’re stuck trudging…
