My picks for the weekend of December 28 – 30, 2012:
1. Les Miserables
2. The Hobbit
3. Parental Guidance
4. Django
5. Jack Reacher

Ya know, I look at this week, and I think, this will be a week where no one goes home happy. Mainly because of 2 big mid-week releases for the Christmas holiday, but also because the week between Christmas and New Year’s is always thrashed up work/play/happiness is all over the place and I know that next year, with Christmas and New Year’s on a Wednesday, will be WORSE!

1) Les Miserables – It is getting constant positive vibes over Tarantino’s western madness, so, despite my disturbingly intense dislike of musicals, I give it tops this week.

2)Django Unchained – Tarantino. That’s all I really have to say.

3)The Hobbit – I’ve seen this twice, and still want to see it again.

4) Parental Guidance – Wasn’t Billy Crystal’s career swan song his hosting of the Oscars? Or as a voice actor?

5)Jack Reacher – Ethan Hunt is a busy man. He needs hobbies. Like being a no-holds-barred cop. Retirement sucks, be a bad-ass.
