The holiday week brings us The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Adventures of Tintin on Wednesday, 12/21 and War Horse and The Darkest Hour on Sunday, 12/25.
It’s the holiday season, and with it (hopefully) comes vacation days during which you can go sledding, skiing or just stay at home and drink too much eggnog while watching Netflix. If you opt for the latter (and we certainly are), here are twenty movies that’ll fill you with the holiday spirit when the weather outside is frightful.
It’s almost here! Tintin and Captain Haddock set off on a treasure hunt for a sunken ship commanded by Haddock’s ancestor. But someone else is in search of the ship.
Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson bring you The Adventures of Tin Tin this holiday season. Here’s a first look at the stills.
Jigsaw’s legacy comes to an end not so much with a roar but a sputtering whimper with this cheap-looking and poorly written final installment.
Cary Elwes makes for a fine Robin of Loxley (complete with real British accent) in Mel Brooks’ not-bad spoof of the Merry Men legend.
The Saw franchise doesn’t show any waning, so a seventh film probably doesn’t come across as special or unusual. Especially since they’ve been pumping these out once a year since the original in 2004. But wait! There are some details that might actually interest you.
Evil Prince John is oppressing the people while good King Richard is away on the Crusades. Robin steals from the tax collectors, wins an archery contest, defeats the Sheriff, and rescues Maid Marian. In this spoof version by, however, Mel Brooks adds his own personal touch, parodying traditional adventure films, romance films and the whole idea of men running around the woods in tights.
