8 Movies To See This Holiday Season
12:30 pm, November 8th | by
The holiday season is not just a time for gift exchanging and family visits, but movie trips! There are a ton of exciting films coming out, so here are the ones we’re most looking forward to. Go see these after they’ve been released…AND you’ve already tuned in for ABC Family’s “25 Days of Christmas” marathon. Don’t disappoint me by skipping out on
Hook and Home Alone!
1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Not really my cup of tea anymore, but a holiday treat nonetheless. It hits theaters December 14.
2. Save the Date
Now here's an intriguing story line: young woman rejects boyfriend's proposal while her sister jubilantly plans her own wedding. "I get that he's wonderful and I also get that you're getting married," she tells her sister. "I think it's awesome that you have some guy that you love and you don't question it for a second." *Sigh* Why do I feel like
this applies to so many young women out there?
3. The Guilt Trip
A mother and son go on a road trip together as he attempts to sell his invention.
4. Breaking Dawn: Part 2
The end of the
Twilight series is here. I'm already crying crocodile tears! Go see it November 16.
5. Silver Linings Playbook
After spending some time in a mental institution, Pat (Bradley Cooper) moves back in with his mom and dad and tries to patch things up with his ex-wife. Along the way, he befriends a young woman named Tiffany who changes the game on him. I'm excited to see Jennifer Lawrence in action again. The movie comes out November 21.
6. Parental Guidance
A pair of grandparents agree to babysit their grandkids but the generation gap is felt the whole time. It will be out Christmas Day.
7. This Is 40
A sort-of sequel to
Knocked Up. The idea behind the film feels pretty whiny and arrogant to me, but you can always expect a lot of laughs at a Judd Apatow film. It hits theaters December 21.
8. Les Miserables
The classic French story returns to the big screen Christmas Day.
