There is literally no news today. Seriously, we just debated doing a post stating that David Duchovony switched agencies to WME (way to go guys!) it is so dead. But all for you we have come up with the typical holiday plan — movie list!!
Here are five awesome Thanksgiving movies. Watch them while in a food coma or blitzed tomorrow.
Home for the Holidays — Holly Hunter is kind of the greatest and is amazing playing an adulterous single mom in this wacky holiday romp. Also starring Robert Downey Jr., playing gay, Anne Bancroft, playing awesome, and Claire Danes as Hunter’s petulant teen daughter. It’ll be like reliving your day all over again.
The House of Yes — Tori Spelling is in this movie and really, really good. Who would’ve thunk it? The real star however is a mentally unbalanced Parker Posey eager to revisit her incestuous past with her brother while he is home for the holidays with his new gal. Family fun for all!
Hannah and Her Sisters — Dianne Weiss, Michael Caine and Woody Allen all won Oscars for this, perhaps the director’s second most memorable film after Annie Hall. Affairs, drugs, Carrie Fisher — this movie has everything you could hope for this holiday season.
The Ice Storm — Christina Ricci plays the greatest pissed off teen of all time in this Ang Lee flick that, in our humble opinion, is even better than that gay cowboy movie. I mean the tent scene in Brokeback is nothing compared to Ricci giving Elijah Wood a blow job while wearing a Nixon mask. Also wonderful are Joan Allen as the frosty matriarch and Sigourney Weaver as a bored lover.
The Myth of Fingerprints — This little scene indie stars Julianne Moore, Blythe Danner and Hope Davis as a family that has got some issues. And, like all good families, they decide to let it all seep out on Thanksgiving! Bonus points for the genius way Roy Schneider convinces people he hunts and kills the family turkey every year.
