Now you can have a voice!

Many Hoboken residents are happy we now have a modern movie theater in town after years without one. Clearview Cinemas, which opened last month on 14th Street has provided an easy option to stay local when you’re in the mood for a flick.

However, Hoboken411 has received quite a few emails about the somewhat lackluster titles showing – and inspired me to partner with Clearview in helping decide which movies would be most desired for area residents!! No more complaints!

Vote: What movies do you want next?

Periodically, Hoboken411 will run a poll of upcoming movie releases, and Clearview will pick from the most popular choices. Vote here and see movie trailers after the jump!

will there be another survey? I keep seeing ads for some new movies that look interesting.

“Avatar” looks to be the next “Watchmen”. Just because there is now technical ability to do something with computer generation doesn’t mean you should. Difficult to look at.

No interest in seeing Avatar. At all. Looks dumb – a giant video game with a recycled plot.

I agree that the selection of movies is lackluster. I like going to the movies, but when I decided to go out last weekend, there was literally nothing worth seeing (unfortunately I missed “A Serious Man”). Ok, I did end up watching “this is it”, but only because there was no other choice…

I think this vote is an excellent idea. Also, people still going to the movies may increasingly rely on reviews (I certainly do), so until the reviews are out, it is hard to make a judgment. I suspect that playing a film with a 20% rating (according to rottentomatoes or metacritic) is a losing proposition in Hoboken. Look at the ratings of movies playing right now in the cinema – why would I go there, unless I get paid to waste 2 hours?

I rarely care about seeing movies in the theater, but I am interested in seeing Avatar and Sherlock Holmes – depending on the reviews.

@pawsclaws – have you always hated “It’s A Wonderful Life?”

Three movies which I like to watch during the holiday season (just once, don’t need to watch multiple times):

1. It’s A Wonderful Life, campy, sure, but have a few glasses of wine before watching with a few loved ones and you get in the Christmas spirit…
2. A Christmas Story, who doesn’t love Ralphie?
3. Scrooge (1951), Alastair Sim nailed the role of Scrooge…

I would hope that they show Jim Carrey’s new “A Christmas Carol” here. I have heard mixed reviews, though.

One would hope that the fact that “A Magoo Christmas Carol” is not on your list is an oversight!
