    Jump for Joy Decks!!!!!

    i remember you asked about this...


    Hoping to take in a holiday movie from Hollywood? This year, you're out of luck: Movie studios are saying "humbug" when it comes to seasonal flicks.
    According to a story in the Los Angeles Times, there are many reasons movie moguls are going Scrooge. There's the crowded marketplace for one -- what the article calls "irrational seasonal exuberance." So many movies with a holiday theme landed in theaters in 2006 that Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" had to open before Halloween to get viewers' attention. Ho, ho, huh?
    A slew of flops hasn't helped either. ("Deck the Halls," anyone?) Plus, animated movies like "Toy Story 3" get the family audience in without waiting for December 25. Same goes for other blockbuster brands that have global reach -- anything "Harry Potter," say, works year-round.
    [Related: Recent holiday flick considered 'worst movie of the year']
    As a producer for Disney told the Los Angeles Times, "No one's come up with a fresh way to do a holiday movie, so we're all doing it with other kinds of stories." Like "TRON: Legacy" and "Chronicles of Narnia" movies, which get the family audience with or without Yuletide feelings.
    DVD sales present yet another Hollywood conundrum. As the kids will tell you, Christmas comes but once a year, meaning Christmas movies out on DVD in July don't exactly draw a crowd.

    Thanks! So I am not crazy! I was just saying WTF...they are showing previews for movies coming out in January.

    Looks like we are going to have to see the "Gulliver's Travels" or whatever it is with Jack Black which will probably be a huge bomb and waste of money...

    But...it is out tradition and Hollywood sucks ass for doing that.

    We will most likely just skip it...and it will save us $80 or more.

    Dh is TERRIBLE about movies. I have to fight with him if I want to watch something he has already seen. He can read every book we own 50,000 times, but if I ask him to watch a movie more than once it is the end of the world. So annoying.

    I already did. There was nothing really. It is between that Black Jack movie or Little Fockers. Neither looks like something I want to pay $10 each, plus drinks and popcorn, to see.
