My Proposed Fall/Winter 2011 Schedule

So I've been meaning to post a list of what movies I'd like to see. The way it works is I usually go every weekend to the movies, but I'm also a member of an advance screening website. The number of screenings per month for that will fluctuate. I can go a month and see one or end up seeing five. So I'm going to post...

-What movies I intend to pay to see
-What other movies I may see*
-Movies that I'm only seeing if they are for free*
*I understand some people might take issue with not paying for movies and sneaking into another theater, soooooo.... I won't mention if I do that

Sometimes things work out interesting, for example. If I were to have done one for this week it would've went...

September 9th
Intend to see- Contagion (Steven Soderbergh)
I may see- Warrior (Gavin O'Connor)

Now I ended up seeing Warrior because of a free advance screening on Wednesday and then I payed to see Contagion on Friday. On both occasions I thought about seeing if after I could just go see a movie I missed out on from the summer for free, but I wasn't able to. Now if I had seen Contagion in advance, I'd pay to see Warrior, and then go see whatever movies I haven't seen. Basically I try to do one movie a week and then I may wander around and see what else I could see (and friends of mine know what I mean by "wander around"). Films will of course carry over from past weeks and then of course this all depends if the films I'm interested in are even playing at the same theater. I'm sure you get the idea of the various scenarios. So here is my proposed schedule for September-December.

Ones I have a varying range of interest in that I still haven't seen from this spring/summer (in order of release date and then alphabetical)- Meek's Cutoff, Midnight in Paris, The Tree of Life, Beginners, A Better Life, The Devil's Double, The Guard, The Change-Up, Conan the Barbarian, One Day, Colombiana, The Debt
