Each year, I see at least one movie in the theater over the holidays. In recent years, I've seen as many as three movies in as many days. I am pretty sure I'm not alone, either. Anyone else have a Christmas tradition of seeing a movie in the theater? Yeah, I thought so. This year, excellent news for us: We have a ton of choices.
2011's holiday movie openings include a David Fincher thriller (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
), a Steven Spielberg/Peter Jackson motion-capture family movie (The Adventures of Tintin
), a Cameron Crowe-directed comedy/drama (We Bought a Zoo
), a Tom Hanks/Sandra Bullock drama (Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
), a horror movie thriller (The Darkest Hour
) and yet another Spielberg offering, War Horse
. Lots of Oscar-bait in this group. What will you see this holiday? I'm thinking I'll see at least two of these, possibly more.
