Well, it's Monday again (already??) and that means it's time for Monday Morning Movie Mania. Did you go to the movies this weekend or watch something cool at home? Tell us what you watched and how you liked it. This weekend's top movies were certainly an eclectic grouping:
"Beowulf" - A retelling of the Germanic legend, using "performance-capture technology" to give a bizarre, almost-animated look to stars Ray Winstone and Angelina Jolie, amongst other big names. The movie was particularly popular in special 3-D showings and iMax theatres.
"Bee Movie" - Jerry Seinfeld's animated comedy continues to attract like honey does flies. The film's three week take has been $98.8 million, with the big Thanksgiving weekend still on the horizon.
"American Gangster" and "Fred Claus" are both holdovers from previous weekends, as is the sixth place movie, "Dan in Real Life," which got high marks from our Monday Morning Movie Maniacs last week.
Rounding out the top five movies, however, is a brand new film, "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium," a sweet slice of fantasy starring Dustin Hoffman and Natalie Portman.
Did you see any of the top five or did you watch an old favorite in the comfort of your living room? Write us a review, and feel free to comment on other reviews as well. Have a great Thanksgiving week - don't burn the turkey, don't ignore your family while you watch the football games and don't knock anybody down to get a cheap gift at one of the discount stores. In fact, if you need a place to escape the avalanche of carbs and the shopping frenzy, put the family in the car and get over to the library. We will be open all weekend, except for Thursday, the Thanksgiving holiday. Come on in and see us this Friday, Saturday and Sunday!
PlainTalk will return on Friday - in fact, let's keep the holiday theme going by sharing our Thanksgiving stories, right here, over the coming weekend.
