5 Not-So-Sappy Holiday Movies to Watch
Holiday movies have a warm and fuzzy feeling for many people, but it can get overrated. Feel like skipping out on the seasonal flicks? If that sounds like you, here are our alternative film choices to consider.
The Dark Knight Rises
Summary: Eight years on, a new terrorist leader, Bane, overwhelms Gotham’s finest, and the Dark Knight resurfaces to protect a city that has branded him an enemy.
This bad boy just released on DVD earlier this month. It’s the perfect action flick to watch (or re-watch) this season if you’re steering clear of traditional Christmas movies. Tough guys (helllloooo, Christine Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt!), fast cars, super sweet costumes…no wonder The Dark Knight was rated so highly this year.
Summary: Cady Heron is a hit with The Plastics, the A-list girl clique at her new school, until she makes the mistake of falling for Aaron Samuels, the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic Regina George.
Summary: Competition between the maid of honor and a bridesmaid, over who is the bride’s best friend, threatens to upend the life of an out-of-work pastry chef.
Summary: Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school’s all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
Midnight in Paris
Summary: While on a trip to Paris with his fiancé’s family, a nostalgic screenwriter finds himself mysteriously going back to the 1920s every day at midnight.
