A Box, Goats, Precious, and LOTS of Jim Carrey: You Choose!

Leave a comment

Happy Friday! The weekend is here, and thus you now have countless opportunities for entertainment. Take for example, the movies. Essentially, there are five big new movies on the radar this weekend for your viewing pleasure. Here are your options. You can watch George Clooney star in The Men Who Stare at Goats, based on a book about a secret military plan to use  paranormal skills to, well, take out barnyard animals with a glance (and presumably a hairy eyeball). Or, perhaps you’ll go see  The Box, a suspense thriller about a couple presented with a box, a button, and a few life or death options.Starring Cameron Diaz. You could also catch  Precious: Based on the novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire, a harrowing but ultimately uplifting urban drama that’s got real Oscar buzz. Then again maybe you’re intrigued by The Fourth Kind, starring the gorgeous Milla Jovovich (whose appearance in The Fifth Element leads me to wonder if she has a thing for ordinal  numbers). This one’s about creepy disappearances in an Alaskan town. Your final movie option? A Christmas Carol, which combines Jim Carrey, that weird motion capture animation, a PG rating, plus an oldie but goodie storyline. Which will probably add up to major  box office bucks right on thru the holidays. And this got me thinking: why would a studio release a Christmas movie weeks before even Thanksgiving? And then I remembered: because it’ll make tons of cash. And who better to star in a pre-holiday holiday blockbuster than Jim Carrey? So of course I got to wondering about  your favorite Jim Carrey films. Hence today’s poll. Now, I am sticking with JC’s “fun”  films and steering clear of  Oscar bait like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Truman Show.Voice your choice in today’s featured poll and let us know your fave Jim Carrey film.
