Don't Just Talk Turkey! 15 Movie Topics To Argue Over This Thanksgiving

Don't Just Talk Turkey! 15 Movie Topics To Argue Over This Thanksgiving

Eraserhead dinner

Feeling that pre-Thanksgiving agita?  I know, it's not the food. It's the thought of heaping helpings of stilted conversation about the presidential election and Wal-Mart's Black Friday strike.  Well, you can thank me now or later, but I've got you covered.  Back for a return holiday engagement is Movieline's gluten- and Trans fat-free turkey day conversation helper: 15 film-related topics that will insure that Grandpa never gets to his "Mitt Romney is the devil, but he's my devil" monologue.  

1. Will the Twilight Saga have the cultural longevity of Star Wars?

2. If Adam Sandler's best performance since Funny People is Hotel Transylvania, should he just stick to cartoons?

3. Is Bill Murray's FDR impression in Hyde Park on Hudson inspired in part by David Letterman?

4. Is Lindsay Lohan's acting career beyond saving?

5. Does Snoop Lion really believe all this Rastafarian stuff?

6. Where in the world is Warren Beatty?

7.  Whose acting career will matter longer:  Kristen Stewart or Robert Pattinson?

8. Which actor should portray Gen. David Petraeus in the inevitable Lifetime movie about his affair?

9. Is George Clooney the mayor of Hollywood even though he spends a lot of time in Lake Como?

10. Will the mixed reviews for Life of Pi hurt its Oscar chances?

11. What happened to Harvey Weinstein's love affair with The Intouchables?

12. Given the publicity that Brad Pitt's Chanel No. 5 TV spot got, should he purposely look for ridiculous commercials?

13.  Is there any actor sexier than Ryan Gosling?

14.  Good casting decision or bad: Russell Crowe singing Broadway show tunes in Les Misérables?

15. Will Seth MacFarlane be a good Oscar host? (And what does Grampa think of Ted?)

Happy Thanksgiving! Here's hoping your holiday with the fam is a little less agonizing than this:
