With the holidays right around the corner, along with all of the good food, presents, and holiday cheer comes something we all love: new holiday movies! It is no secret that every movie production company wants to pack a powerful punch right around Christmas, when movie ticket sales go through the roof. The month of December often produces some of the year’s best, most entertaining movies. Here are some up and coming films that you will want to check out while during your Christmas break:
“Black Swan,” featuring Natalie Portman, is already garnering Oscar buzz. It will be released on December 3rd.
“The Fighter,” featuring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, and Amy Adams is coming to theaters on December 10th.
“The Tourist” with Jonny Depp and Angelina Jolie comes out the same weekend, December 10th.
“The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader” comes out December 10th.
“TRON: Legacy” comes out December 17th.
“How Do You Know,” a romantic comedy featuring Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, and Jack Nicholson comes out December 17th.

If you are looking for the best movie in the theaters right now, it’s NOT RED, the new Marvel film.
-Directed by Robert Schwentke
-Starring Bruce Willis
Once again, the industry is trying to make a popular movie, thinking the only requisite is paying for top actors.
“Its a spectacle of terrific actors,” raves Wall Street Journal.
This is clearly an expensive line up, but WSJ does not say the movie is actually entertaining. If you have seen the reviews, no doubt you have seen the scene where a bullet and a bazooka round collide, causing an explosion comparable to a oil tanker blowing up.
In review of the 110 minute film, it is non-stop ridiculous action sequences. RED did show moments of brilliance, but they were overshadowed by the lack of credibility. I mean, who even thinks Helen Mirren can blow a cargo van to pieces using a machine gun.
The box office reports
26 million in sales from its sole week in theaters. Jackass 3D is running on the same time line, yet has reported 65 million in sales.
Hopefully, the next action movie released will have action stars, not just fake stunts.
If I were you, I would watch the trailer a few more time and save your money to see a real movie.
