A Not So Christmacy Movie Month

By Celine Fu:

Sleeping Beauty – December 2nd
An extremely sensual film that has the audacity to award itself an innocent Disney movie title, Sleeping Beauty
depicts the story of Lucy, who is drawn into a world of beauty and desires. There is definitely a lot of ‘sleeping’ in this movie.
Coriolanus – December 2nd

This is the modern version of William Shakespeare’s Coriolanus. Starring the sexy Gerard Butler and Ralph Fiennes, it is a political action movie full of betrayal and revenge. It’s classic Shakespeare, but it’s recommended to you by the makers of Gladiators.

New Year’s Eve – December 9th
The New Year’s movie that doesn’t premiere on New Years…It is a star mash up film that celebrates love, hope, forgiveness, fresh starts and second chances. Looks like a fun flick to see with friends.

I Melt with You – December 9th
The dark adventure of four bromancing men and the shattering promise they made together. I seriously have no clue what the trailer is trying to describe…but if you are looking for a R-rated drama and thriller, I guess this would be it.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy – December 9th
An espionage film situated at the height of the Cold War. In this movie, everyone tries to uncover the enormous secret of who the double mole is in the British Intelligence: the Tinker, the Tailor, the Soldier, or the Spy? There’s more to this game than you think; it is R rated after all…This is a definite watch if you are a Colin Firth or Benedict
Cumberbatch fan.

The Sitter – December 9th
Another hit comedy starring Johan Hill. He plays a suspended, jobless college student who lives with his single mom.
Would you trust him with your kids? For all those comedy lovers, this movie is seriously fun.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-wrecked – December 16th
Up for some chip-songs and chip cuteness? Then watch Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-wrecked. This reminds me of Lord of the Flies, but don’t worry, this is chipmunk anarchy, which is definitely merrier, and more amusing
(Considering there are actually girls on the island.)
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows – December 16th
This is the not so exciting sequel of the great Sherlock Holmes movie. Watched the trailer yet? It’s just a mash up of
action scenes and cheesy jokes. Same concept, different mystery; watch if you’re a Sherlock fan. (Spoiler alert: you get to see Sherlock, the great master of disguise, in drag!)

The Adventures of Tintin – December 21st
In a race against evil, the too original Tintin must spoil the plans of an evil professor. With the help of his cute puppy dog and the not-so-intelligent “blue sweater” Captain, Tintin must find a sunken treasure ship before the greedy professor does. This is a must watch for anyone who wants to relive their old fancies.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – December 21st
Love the book? Love Daniel Craig? Then watch this North American movie release of the hit novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It is the adventure of an introverted, emotional and homosexual tomboy detective. As I have not read the book, I cannot guarantee anything…but the trailer is filled with sexual content, violence, and mystery.
Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol – December 21st
The mission, should you choose to accept it, is to watch yet another mission impossible movie, in which Tom Cruise
completes the impossible mission ofsurviving governmental pursuit with his awesome espionage skills and
physique… Action scenes and Tom Cruise are all that matter, right?…Yeah right, mission aborted.
