This may be the biggest weekend at the movies in a long time, as far as new movies are concerned. Thanksgiving week.
A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood
Tom Hanks. Thanksgiving weekend. A fully immersable role. PG-13. This movie about Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers) is on the list of "mandatory going." You almost have to go, like it's a city ordinance of something. With all due respect to the incredible Hanks, I think many of us have been patiently waiting to see him in a role like this again. Nothing wrong with Toy Story 12, or lots of other recent flicks, this is what Hanks does best. Hanks diving deeply into a character we care about like Mr. Rogers. He should be terrific.
Here's to hoping that they give him a great script to work with, and care about good movie making as much as Fred Rogers cared about making good television.
Here we go again. This of course will be a big hit, but this time around, they will be wearing the collar of hype and expectation.
Will the audience follow them again?
Fictional police drama that has a great cast, and a very intense premise, that deals with numerous cops killed. This looks really good, and I hope it is. Hopefully this will not get lost in the cyclone of Mr. Rogers and Elsa.
If they get lucky, this could be a big sleeper hit.
