As Thanksgiving approaches, I’m trying to brighten my attitude about life in general and the fall movie season in particular. After all, despite my bloviating, perhaps things aren’t so bad. It may not look like it judging by the current wide-release roster, but awards season is indeed upon us, and there’s actually quite a few promising titles to look forward to in the coming weeks  —  starting with “The Muppets” (admittedly not an awards contender, though I’m looking forward to it more than anything else this season), which opens Thursday. Nothing  —  I repeat, nothing  —  will brighten your holidays like the lovable antics of the Swedish Chef.

Of course, in order to claim my sweet, sweet reward I must first survive “Twilight: Breaking Dawn  —  Part 1,” which I will review next week. I just caught about 15 minutes of “New Moon” the other day, and easily consider it among the most harrowing cinematic experiences of my entire life. I honestly don’t know how I’ll survive a full two hours of such buffoonery, but if I do come out the other side without a significant degree of brain damage (I’ve already accepted that there’s bound to be some), I shall share my tale of woe.
