During my days off this week, in a perfect world I would scatter in a movie or two into our festive family fun! I am really excited about several movies this season, and if I had my druthers, here are my top choices (in no particular order).
Grudge Match (aka: Rocky vs. Raging Bull): Anyone who knows me KNOWS that I’m a HUGE Rocky fan!!! So, any time I see Sly pulling out a boxing role, I’m going to be on the front row! Between Robert “Raging Bull” DeNiro and Sylvester “Rocky” Stallone, this is the kind of movie that a gal like me can really sink my teeth into!
Believe (aka: the last ditch attempt to save Justin’s reputation): My girls and I have had Bieber fever since he was a kid singing great songs and just being completely adorable! We were at his concert in 2010, screaming and singing every song at the top of our lungs!!! Since then, we’ve watched JB seemingly spiral and it’s been easy to judge him for the little bit we see in the headlines. I can’t imagine growing up so fast and into such a fast culture, so I’m dying to see JB’s second rockumentary!
Saving Mr. Banks (or…the story behind Mary Poppins): How can you go wrong with Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson in this movie about a story that is absolutely beloved by countless people over many generations past and those to come? It looks heart-warming and I can’t wait to see it!
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty: Although I am told this is a remake of an older movie, I want to see this for two awesome reasons. 1) Because I love any movie that is based around the basic premise of living life, living it BIG, and not regretting a second of it; and 2) because I’m a Ben Stiller fan. Bring it on!!!
