  1. This is a great Thanksgiving movie list. I particularly like that you included trailers, they’re really helpful since I haven’t seen most of these movies. I have heard about A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving from a few of my DISH coworkers, though. Everyone seems to love it, so I think I’ll try it out this Thanksgiving. I can rent it from DISH’s Blockbuster @Home service, and when I’m done watching it I can switch it out for another Thanksgiving movie at the nearest Blockbuster store. I’m thinking I might trade it for Planes, Tranes, and Automobiles since that looks good, too. Thanks for the ideas.
