The Christmas holiday has a knack for doing two things. One, about 100 major theatrical releases all vying for a spot at the Oscars. Two, it keeps the movie nerds (us) home with family, friends and food rather than out at the multip-plex to see said films. That said, we managed to catch up with a few different currently released titles this week. Kurt indulged in the Spielbergian version of mo-cap while Andrew took Matt Gamble’s advice and caught up with Detective Holmes on his second go-around. But starting things off this week is some talk on the much buzzed about, silent picture, The Artist. Much buzzed and now much loved as well. A very very quick watch list then off to bed to rest up for what should be a lengthy week of playing catch-up in anticipation of year-end wrap-ups, lists and such.
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
