Watch | Read | Listen {December 2014}

Happy December! The last month of the year always means there's an amazing movie selection! I kind of feel like I should be living at the movie theater this month. In November I saw Big Hero 6 and Mockingjay and absolutely loved both of them. Did you see Mockingjay? What did you think of it? This month I'll definitely be seeing The Hobbit, Annie, and Into the Woods. What about you?


Reese Witherspoon brings Cheryl Strayed's adventure to life by playing a heroin addict that destroyed her marriage. Strayed makes the rash decision to hike more than a thousand miles on the Pacific Crest Trail on her own with no experience. She goes on an incredible journey of hardships and self-discovery. (Watch the trailer.) (December 5)

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
The final installment of the Hobbit trilogy arrives! Bilbo's (Martin Freeman) journey takes him to the Lonely Mountain where he must make a dangerous choice alongside the dwarves, elves, and men as Smaug the dragon rains fire down upon them and evil rises up. (Watch the trailer.) Definitely seeing this! (December 17)

Annie (Quvenzhane Wallis), the happy and young foster kid who lives with foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz), is tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Everything changes for her when mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) takes her in as a campaign move, but her sunny outlook begins to change things. (Watch the trailer.) I want to see this so badly! (December 19)

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
Night guard Larry (Ben Stiller) takes an epic journey around the world to figure out why the magical powers of the Tablet of Ahkmenrah is dying out and to save it before it's gone forever. Also starring Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Patrick Gallagher, Ben Kingsley, and Rebel Wilson. (Watch the trailer.) (December 19)

Into the Woods
It all begins with a family and the witch who tells them what they must do in order to reverse their curse. This humorous and musical movie interweaves the original tale of this family with that of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel. (Watch the trailer.) This looks fantastic! (December 25)

Angelina Jolie brings to life the epic and harrowing tale of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini (Jack O'Connell), who survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII only to become a prisoner of war in Japan. This is a true story of what it takes to survive. (Watch the trailer.) (December 25)
