    Red Planet and Dungeons and Dragons for me. D&D being the most excited cos i'm a bit of an RPG geek

    There's no release date here yet and it's rumoured it might be coming out straight on video. Boo!

    But at least if it does I can buy the DVD and watch it over and over again.

    I hope Arnold Schwarzenegger finally is in a good movie, but isn't unlikely. That Unbreakable movie looks good...

    I have heard the exact opposite about Arnold's new movie. It is the worst of his career. I don't think I will be watching it. Probably relegate it to the "Movie Channel".

    Of the movies listed, I will see "Unbreakable", "102 Dalmations", and the DND movie. Will try to throw in the "Grinch" as well but it is unlikely.

    Having kids and with Yule being my favorite time of year, this next 6 weeks is the busiest time of the year.

    All the parties, get-togethers, trips, shopping, quality time, wrapping, celebrating, decorating, cooking and other stuff really eats away at the time.

    Busy... Busy... Busy...

    I want to see "Charlie's Angels". I know it is not on your list but don't forget we are really behind in movie releases here in the UK. "Charlie's Angles" is only being relaesed tomorrow.

    I didn't list all of the movies coming out. I want to see Charlies Angels also. Are there any others that people are excited about?

    I guess "Little Nicky" might be funny as I think Adam Sandler is hilarious!

    What holiday-release movies are you most excited about?[list=1][*] Grinch I might see it, its supposed to be good.[*] 6th Day I saw this the first time when it was called Total Recall[*] Red Planet Seen it, nice idea, poorly executed. It starts out with a summary of what has happened thus far, bad character development.[*] Unbreakable looks good[*] 102 Dalmations not a big talking animal fan[*] Vertical Limit Not a big Chris O'donnel fan.[*] Dungeons & Dragons Oh my God I want to see this.[*] What Women Want Never heard of it[*] Cast Away A must see.[*] The Family Man Téa Leoni is beautiful, and it looks good[*] Miss Congeniality looks funny[*] O Brother, Where Art Thou? Haven't heard of it[/list=1]

    And I'll add one to your list

    Billy Eliot - About a boy who learns ballet. Playboy gave it 4 bunny heads so I might go see it.

    Another one.

    Proof Of Life (Russel Crowe, Meg Ryan) - Looks like a nice action flick, especially if Meg isn't as bubbly as normal.

    I'll probably see Grinch since it got great reviews. I'll also see 6th Day just because it looks good too. Not on the list but I like it Charlie's Angels.

    I somehow missed that one. It sounds great. I like both of them. Apparently it is base upon a true story. Crowe plays a hostage negotiator who falls for the wife of the hostage.

    Release date is December 8, 2000.

    Definitely the Grinch.

    I'll probably not watch DND inspite of the amazing special effects, I've seen the trailer I can't stand their "Hercules" or "Mortal Kombat" style of talking.

    End of Days didn't get good reviews from anybody I know who saw it, which is a shame because nearly all of his others films are great (Cross Last Action Hero, Junior off the list).

    O Brother, Where Art Thou? - It's an OK film, it has it's moments like all films. Not a bad film but not a brilliant one either.

    I just saw the 6th Day last night-- it was pretty impressive. Some parts were kind of unrealistic (duh...) but the story line isn't all that far fetched. And, I know since there are some RPG nerds hanging around here somewhere, you'll be happy to know I saw a preview for a 'Final Fantasy' movie.
