No “Round-Up” today as final predictions are coming on Sunday/Monday.

I have a strange habit.  Well, I’ll let everyone judge how strange it actually is for themselves.  When I watch movies or trailers, I like to look at the movie advertisements plastering the city to get a sense of when the movie was shot.

This is easy in any movie filmed in Times Square, which is so saturated with ads that it’s impossible to film without catching at least one of them; examples of these include “Date Night” and “Enchanted.”  But sometimes they are more subtle, and I catch them out of the corner of my eye on a bus shelter or on a taxi.

I came up with this factoid through watching the trailer for “The Adjustment Bureau,” which upon rewatching actually had no ads.  Oops.

Thanksgiving Day isn’t necessarily a huge moviegoing day for my family, at least nowhere near as big as Christmas.  It is the first day that my dad permits listening to Christmas music (although that hasn’t stopped me from listening to “All I Want For Christmas Is You” ten times already on my laptop).  When we do go, they have been family movies (“Enchanted” in 2007, “Fantastic Mr. Fox” today) so be thankful for that time we can share together.
