Along with beaming children, the warm embrace of families, holiday cheer and all that nonsense, the end of the year also brings with it a bunch of big new movie releases. December is traditionally a time when Hollywood rolls out a bunch of potential blockbusters and Oscar hopefuls. Which movies this month do you look forward to watching?
Personally, there’s next to no chance that I’ll get out to a movie theater this month. I’ll have my hands full with other, more pressing concerns. Even if that weren’t the case, however, I have to say that this is probably the least exciting slate of year-end films in recent memory.
That doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m not interested in any of them, though. I’ll always give new films from Martin Scorsese or the Coen brothers the benefit of the doubt. Spike Jonze’s ‘Her’ sounds bizarre and intriguing, and I’ll hold out hope that ‘Anchorman 2’ is a worthy follow-up. I might even be willing to give David O. Russell another chance to win me back over with ‘American Hustle’. Still, there’s not a single one of these movies that I couldn’t wait until Blu-ray to see.
