It’s Thanksgiving week, and there’s a good chance you will hit up your local theater with your extended family. Or maybe the theater will be your escape from your extended family. Either way, you want to make sure you’re spending your money wisely.
So here are your three best options this Thanksgiving:
I watched this film last night, and it was an extreme delight. It was probably the funniest movie I’ve seen this year, which is saying something because I watched The Disaster Artist last week. Honestly, Lady Bird might be a perfect film. I can’t think of one negative thing to say about it. If your family has a sense of humor, and is not afraid of naughty language, then this is probably your best bet this Thanksgiving. It currently has that rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. 150 fresh reviews. 0 rotten. Greta Gerwig wrote and directed this film, and I hope she wins some awards for her work. She definitively deserves to be nominated for Best Screenplay.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Once again, if your family is cool with naughty language and some dark a** humor, then you cannot go wrong with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. This film will probably be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, and it’s easy to see why. I was hooked from the first trailer, which was one of the best trailers of the year. Richard Roeper wrote, “This is the best movie I’ve seen this year.”
If your family is a bit more conservative, then Disney’s Coco is the movie for you. According to the critics, it’s right up there with Pixar’s Inside Out in 2015, and it’s the clear favorite to win Best Animated Feature at the Oscars. As we reported last week, the film became Mexico’s highest grossing film ever. It’s set to be released in the states on Wednesday.[mashshare]
