Movies I Want To See (December 2012)

Last month of the year already? 2012 went by so fast! If we make it to 2013 (you know, considering the world is supposed to end December 21st), I think it will be a great year! Last month, I saw Skyfall, which I would recommend if you're a Bond and/or action fan, and Breaking Dawn, which I don't recommend unless you want to make fun of it or are a tween girl.
This month there are so many amazing movies coming out that it was so hard to pick just six! Read on to see which ones I can't wait to get a movie ticket for...

Addison (Eric Bana) and Liza (Olivia Wilde) are siblings on the run from a casino heist gone wrong. After a car accident, they split up to make a run for the Canadian border during a whiteout blizzard. While Addison goes cross-country, Liza is picked up by ex-boxer Jay (Charlie Hunnam) on his way to his parents; his father is a retired sheriff (Kris Kristofferson). While there, the siblings are reunited in a tense showdown. Though family drama isn't my usual thing, this movie looks so dramatic and suspensful. (December 7)
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
A prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, this adventure follows Bilbo Baggins, who is approached by Gandalf the Grey to join a company of thirteen dwarves and go on an epic quest to save the lost Dwarf kingdom of Erebor from the dragon, Smaug. On their journey, they will encounter goblins, orcs, sorcerers, and of course Gollum and the "precious" ring. I'll definitely be seeing this movie with my family. (December 14)
Zero Dark Thirty
After collecting information and working in secret for a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives are finally close to their goal: finding and eliminating Osama bin Laden. Director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) reunited to capture the manhunt for the world's most dangerous man on film. Starring Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Mark Strong, Jennifer Ehle, Kyle Chandler, and Edgar Ramirez. This film on counterterrorism digs deep into the truth since Bigelow and Boal spent years talking to U.S. intelligence. (December 19)
On the Road
Jack Kerouac's novel tells the story of Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), a young writer whose life is changed by Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a free-spirited and fearless Westerner, and his girl, Marylou (Kristen Stewart). As they travel cross-country, Sal and Dean seek "it," the pure essence of experience, and freedom from conformity. Since I read the book, I'm interested to see how this young man's thoughts on life and love translates to the screen.

Django Unchained
Set in the South two years before the Civil War, Quentin Taratino's new film follows Django (Jamie Foxx) a slave who will be freed by bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christopher Waltz) if he helps Shultz find the murderous Brittle brothers. In addition to his freedom, Schultz will help Django free his wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from the brutal Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). I love Tarantino's mix of twisted history, blood and gore, and dark humor. (December 25)
Les Miserables
Based on the novel by Victor Hugo and the musical, this film is set in 19th century France during the French Revolution and follows the story of an ex-prisoner Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) who has made a name for himself but who has been hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Russell Crowe). Valjean cares for Fantine's (Anne Hathaway) daughter, Cosette (Amanda Seyfried). I can't wait to see this; the acting looks superb and the singing sounds amazing. (December 25)
