Ahoy GBD! I just wanted to let you know which movies will be reviewed in the next few weeks. The movie for this coming Monday will be The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which is still playing in theaters. This review will be brought to you courtesy of the dynamic duo that is Taylor Nikole and Binks.
Next will be a review of Gone with the Wind. I’m not sure who’s doing this review because I am on a “need to know” basis. lol. My suggestion is that you start watching this movie now if you want to be finished by the time the review goes up because my understanding is that it’s, like, 17 hours long. I kid, I kid. It’s not really 17 hours long. More like 10. Ok, ok…no really…it’s almost 4. It’s one of those classic movies that is highly rated by people who have watched it. And it won like 10 Oscars or something ridiculous like that. So give it a watch, yah?
Then to start February off right, we’ve got the one and only Jessica F giving us her take on Bride Wars. This one opened this past weekend, so y’all can go out and bond with your friends watching this movie.
This brings us to The Tale of Despereaux. I’m rethinking whether or not to review this movie because it’s not playing in theaters anymore, and hasn’t come out on DVD yet. Plus, it’s not really a movie that the GBD demographic would be clamoring to see. So I dunno. I’ll think about it.
Which leaves us with Doubt. Now, I know that I said I would review Doubt, but it turns out that I’m having a tough time with the review because I’m drawing a blank. There isn’t really anything to make fun of, so I have no inspiration. *sigh* BUT, Binks also watched this movie and agrees that it is, indeed, awesome. It really is. Y’all should go and watch it while it’s still playing in theaters. Anyway, while pondering what to do about my writer’s block, I remembered what a terrific job Binks did with her review of The Duchess in the newsletter some time ago. Remember how she made all these insightful analyses about women and self-expression? Don’t you feel like Binks would do a similarly terrific job with Doubt? I think we should all peer pressure Binks into writing the review for Doubt so that I can chillax to the max.
Please please please Binks write the review for Doubt!
While Binks contemplates whether she should strangle me now or later, I’d like to invite anyone else interested in reviewing a movie to please send your ideas along. Any movie is okay as long as it’s not rated R. Or NC-17. Or pornographic. Don’t complain to me, I didn’t make the laws. Also, it would ideally be a movie that most GBD peepz can access – either by going to the theater or by renting, borrowing from a library, etc.
In exchange for writing a review, you will have my eternal gratitude. If that’s not enough, I’m willing to negotiate the rights to my first-born.
And here are the trailers!

And yes…I know. Today is Tuesday. “Where’s News Day Tuesday?” you ask. Swishing around my brain somewhere. Once I fish it out, I’ll post it. 😉
