Thrillers can be edge-of-your-seat good or so over-the-top bad. One of these looks good.
Most of these are romantic comedies with one that is just a straight up romance, but they all seem a bit smarter than what usually gets the rom-com label.
I love good horror movies, but there are so many subpar ones that come out all the time. I don’t believe any of these fall into the good category.
Every once in a while, I fall in love with a foreign movie, but none of these look outstanding to me. A couple would be ones that I would see at an International Film Festival, but the rest look so dreadful and boring.
Two movies this holiday season fall into the fantasy category and they are huge movies that are probably going to be quite popular.
I would really think there would be more family movies coming out around the holidays, but it is just a few. Most of them are animated, but Annie squeezed in there.
This is the time of the year for all of the dramas since it is Oscar season. Interstellar and The Theory of Everything have already come out. Other Oscar-contenders on the horizon are the Jon Stewart directed Rosewater, Steve Carell playing super creepy in Foxcatcher, Benedict Cumberbatch playing Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, Reese Witherspoon playing the hiking woman in Wild, and Angelina Jolie’s second directorial film, Unbroken.
I don’t regularly watch documentaries, but most of the ones coming out this season seem interesting. The only way you will watch two of them is if you are interested in Richard Linklater or the band Pulp. I think the documentary about Happy Valley is something that everyone should see.
A mess of comedies are coming out this holiday season and surprisingly only one of them is about the actual holidays, which is a relief because those movies are usually horrible. This one looks to be that way, even if it was one of Robin Williams last movie roles. There are also a few sequels mixed in with the original comedies.
The two big action movies coming out this holiday season feature major battles leading up to all out war. They might try to make you think a little bit before they start beating the crap out of each other though.
