Films for December


The movies you should be watching this month are….

St. Vincent

Critics have been raving about this film since it did the festival circuit earlier this year. Bill Murray is the unfriendly bum Vincent who befriends the boy next door and their unlikely friendship has a positive outcome on them both. I love Murray so definitely up for this. Released: 5th December



The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies

I think the franchise has gone on long enough but I have to see what happens now Smaug has broken free from the Lonely Mountain. The dwarves wanted to reclaim their kingdom and now Smaug is on the loose. The dwarves may think that Erebor is theirs once more but Orcs are closing in and a war is on the horizon. Dun-dun-dun!!! Released: 12th December



Night at the Museum: The Secret of the Tomb

I love these films and I’m ready for more. Plus, this time around Ben Stiller’s Larry is reuniting old characters to embark on a global quest to save the dying magic of the Tablet of Ahkmenrah. These are great family films and I enjoy them immensely. We also get to see a new posthumous performance from the wonderful Robin Williams. Released: 19th December




I love me a musical and I hate to say it, but I don’t know Annie that well. Of course, I know the general gist and ‘Tomorrow’ and ‘Hard Knock Life’, but that’s it. So I welcome this reboot as it brings the tale to a modern audience. I also cannot wait to see Cameron Diaz sing as Miss Hannigan and Jamie Foxx as Will Stacks, who takes in orphan Annie (Quvenzhane Wallis) to boost his political campaign. Released: 26th December



Big Eyes

Amy Adams can do no wrong in my eyes and I’m really interested by this biopic of husband and wife at war over paintings. Adams stars as artist Margaret Keane, whose then-husband Walter (Christoph Waltz) fraudulently claimed to be the artist, when she was in fact the painter. The battle over the authenticity of the artwork culminates in a dramatic courtroom divorce battle. Oscar potential perhaps? Released: 26th December




I am bracing myself for this because I feel it is going to be one emotional rollercoaster. This tells the story of U.S. Olympic sprinter Louis Zamperini (played by Jack O’Connell) who survives 47 days in the Ocean following a plane crash and is then captured by the Japanese and held in their prisoner-of-war camp for more than two years. This looks both inspiring and devastating. Angelina Jolie’s second directorial effort. Released: 26th December
