Time to draw a line in the sand. You're either a 4th of July movie person or Thanksgiving week movie person. Sorry, no coffee and rain gets me a little sideways early in the week, as well as the prospect of a long weekend. Let's take it down a notch and try it this way: This week we'll pit movies from big summer weekends (Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day) up against favorites from Thanksgiving week, late December releases since time sometimes feels like it stops there and one of the underdog weekends we like, President's Day weekend.
There have been kings and queens of summer, institutions heading into winter and the occasional pop culture phenomenon that make the long days after a few days off all the more bearable. Get your opinions ready - crossing fingers asking for those online - dig deep into the memories, and look ahead a bit for the predictions for those coming up. Time to battle.
