Good morning! It's just three days until Christmas. THREE! To note that I am unprepared is to state, shrugging, 'he thinks movies are alright'
I mean we haven't even started the Year in Review! Rectifying. Rectifying.
This is the kind of time frame wherein you need little friendly woodland animals to be doing all your busy work so that you can focus on the important things like Going to the Ball. I illustrate twitter collections with a picture of birds and today Cinderella seemed natural since Into the Woods is soon upon us. I hadn't really thought about this before but Cinderella is supposed to have this miserable indentured servant life but look at that view from her bedroom window! Talk about a room with a view... that's prime real estate. Shouldn't she be sleeping in the cellar or something?
Herewith some tweets that amused, edified, or otherwise cocked a brow this past week for a variety of reasons, posted to get this week chirping away quickly, happily. Enjoy.
(SO MUCH POSTING DUE THROUGH NEW YEAR'S. BEAR WITH US... VISIT A LOT, OKAY?)

The Hobbit movies are immensely popular, though no one I know likes them or talks about them. The Hobbit is the NCIS of movie franchises.— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) December 21, 2014
"What'd you do today?" "Um you know...generally just...monitored opinions on Twitter and, like, interjected." "Did you go out?" [Hangs head]— Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC) December 15, 2014
Sadly that tweet describes so many ill advised days o' mine! Moving on with GHOST, BATMAN RETURNS after the jump...
No, I'm not desperate for material. I'm really not. In fact I have more material than I know what to do with but I have to share everything before SAG & Globe predictions hit because afterwards it's all fish-wrap you know? Yes
Herewith tweets that amused edified or otherwise stuck out that I just feel like sharing. xoxo
Useless last-second SAG predictions are next!

I have no idea if y'all like this now weeklyish roundup but I do so I'ma Keep On Keepin On. One fun thing that doesn't lend itself to highlighting elsewhere is reply conversations. So if you're interested in 'Bad Movies We Love' you should check out all the fun suggestions for favorite turkeys when I asked over Thanksgiving. I haven't seen several of the ones cited so I must get on that.

Every once in a while, I remember Melissa McCarthy got an Oscar nomination for "Bridesmaids" and how batshit wonderful that was.— Kevin O'Keeffe (@kevinpokeeffe) November 25, 2014
Clash of the twitter threads. I recently started muting words on twitter on subjects I just had no interest in hearing about anymore and in some cases never did despite the rest of the world's inexplicably insatiable interest (my timeline is blessedly "Kardashian" free - you should try it! I'm missing nothing) and I've been so much happier.
Twitter is still a colossal time sucker in some ways but it keeps the pop culture conversation lively and my favorite thing about it is hearing smart people say amusing things that I didn't think to say - that I felt but never put into words (like the first tweet below). Anyway, here are a dozen or so tweets that amused or edified. Just because it's fun to share them.
Really enjoyed A Most Violent Year. First film I've seen in ages where guns are actually treated as guns i.e. INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS.— Catherine Bray (@catherinebray) November 21, 2014

Movie and showbiz tweets that amused / thought provoked most these past several days. Worth retweeting or sharing for you if you're not on twitter...

You liked @PrideMovie? Good way to show it is to donate to a charity or NFP that "has nothing to do with you," then think about how it does.— Nick Davis (@NicksFlickPicks) October 25, 2014
