Trailer Park: “The Wolfman,” “Valentine’s Day,” “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: Lightning Thief”

Chances are you already have plans for Valentine's Day weekend, but if you don't, I have an awesome plan for you: Go to the movies and sit between two groups of people so that either side would assume that you're with the other party. Pretend to offer your popcorn and nod your head as if…

Trailer Park: “Dear John,” “From Paris, With Love,” “Frozen”

It's the first weekend of February, and Punxsutawney Phil totally saw his shadow again, which means we've got another six weeks of winter on our hands. Unless, like the National Climatic Data Center, you believe Groundhog Day is hogwash. (The party poopers say Phil's accuracy is 39 percent). Either way, it's cold as hell out…

Trailer Park: “Edge of Darkness,” “When In Rome,” “Saint John Of Las Vegas”

TGIF! It's what you've been toiling all week for—the weekend! And you can do whatever you want. Drive to Mexico, learn French, floss for once—the world is your oyster. And of course, there is always the movies. If you had a rough week and need to get out some aggression, you might want to watch…

Trailer Park: “Extraordinary Measures,” “Legion,” “Tooth Fairy,” “Creation,” “The Girl On The Train”

I don't know about you guys, but it's been raining for a week straight in California and I've barely left the house. And since bed sores aren't a great look on a girl, I think it's about time to venture somewhere dry ... preferably somewhere that serves something delicious like popcorn and slurpies, for example.

Trailer Park: “The Book of Eli,” “The Last Station,” “Spy Next Door,” “Wonderful World,” “Fish Tank”

It's a long weekend for some of us, which means you've got a whole 'nother evening to spend. Hooray! And because I know you're indecisive, like me, I'm just going to tell you what you're gonna do. You're going to take your best friend/lover/dog to Red Lobster for cheddar biscuits and Lobsteritas. She/he/it will have…

Trailer Park: “Leap Year,” “Youth In Revolt,” And “Daybreakers”

It's eight days into the new year and since one of your resolutions was to get out more (I know, I'm psychic), why not treat yourself to a movie night? Maybe popcorn would get in the way of that resolution to cut down on carbs, but what's a movie without 400-1,200 calories of comfort? Thi…

Trailer Park: “Nine,” “It’s Complicated,” “Sherlock Holmes,” “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus”

It's Christmas Day, which isn't just a huge movie day for non-Christians, it's also where Santa-loving folk go to distract themselves from the postpartum present depression. Thankfully, on such an occasion where everyone will need somewhere to go after gifts and/or Chinese food, there are four amazing-looking movies coming out this week, "Nine," "It's Complicated,"…

Trailer Park: “Avatar,” “Crazy Heart,” “The Young Victoria,” “Did You Hear About The Morgans?”

It's exactly a week until Christmas and if you're lucky, this is your last week at work until the holiday. But since most of us aren't, there is still an easy way to get away for a while. Yup, you guessed it; go see a movie! This week, most people will be clamoring to see…

Trailer Park: “Invictus,” “The Lovely Bones,” & “A Single Man”

I'm sick of trying to convince everyone to go to the movies. Go because for $10-$12, you can take a vacation from your life and live days, months, or years in someone else's existence. Where else, but in your dreams, can you experience such vivid feats of imagination? How did humankind evolve from clubbing mammoth…

Trailer Park: “Everybody’s Fine,” “Brothers,” “Up In The Air”

You've survived Black Friday and the post-Thanksgiving work week, but there's more shopping to do and, because we live in America, we're lucky that many malls contain this magical relaxation device called a "movie theater." Sure, not every movie is relaxing, but the act of movie-going and the traditions that go along with it are…

Trailer Park: “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee,” “The Road,” “Me And Orson Welles”

You really don't need an excuse to go to the movies this week, it's Thanksgiving weekend, you've already eaten your weight in butter and after you've hit your credit card limits for this Black Friday business, you're going to need to hide out in the theater if only to keep yourself from eating and spending…

Trailer Park: “The Blind Side,” “Planet 51,” “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” “Broken Embraces”

It's the weekend before Thanksgiving, so as you're preparing for the feast and practicing your competitive-eating game face, don't forget that you need breaks for good behavior. Plus, if you eat a giant tub of popcorn, you might manage to stretch your belly as if you were consuming popping peanuts, which will allow you to…

Trailer Park: “2012,” “The Messenger,” “Uncertainty,” “The Fantastic Mr. Fox,” “Pirate Radio”

It's a pretty epic day for movie releases. Perhaps it's for our post-Veterans Day, pre-Thanksgiving blowout celebration? So sticker-roll the cat hair off your sweater, buy a tub of popcorn, and get lost in the upcoming apocalypse of "2012," experience the hardest job in the world with "The Messenger," remember that anything can and ofte…

Trailer Park: “Precious,” “The Box,” “A Christmas Carol,” “Men Who Stare At Goats”

Thank goodness it's Friday, because this daylight savings thing has totally killed any motivation to leave the house after 5pm. This will have to change, though, because new movies open this weekend and there are some good ones. If you're in the mood to be an emotional mess, go see "Precious." If you have ever…
