‘Twas the day after Christmas and all through the Promised Land, also known as your local movie theater, moviergoers were scurrying to their seats, needing no Parental Guidance to enjoy a post-holiday movie break (a gift to themselves requiring no return lines). Now, every mall Santa is faced with The Impossible task of packing up their big, red bags of goodies for another year and returning to their own version of the North Pole. The savvy Santas, however, have called it a
(holi)day and, dropping their treasured load, head straight to the balcony section incognito to enjoy a marathon of festive (or fact-based) films.
Christmas may be over, but the wonder that is the movies continues. While Santa may promise to Not Fade Away, clearly He can’t be counted on come December 26th. Fortunately, movies and all their magic never dim. Les Miserable has us anything but miserable, grateful our lives aren’t as complicated as theirs. We’re also thankful Django(‘s) Unchained in the reel world, free to roam as far as the big screen will take him. Jack Reacher connects with the movie lover in all of us, promising approximately 130 minutes worth of post-holiday entertainment. Despite getting everything he wanted for Christmas, including the #1 spot at the box office two weeks running, The Hobbit (takes) An Unexpected Journey to even more fame and fortune while On the Road seeking end-of-holiday sales (even famous characters love a good bargain).
With Christmas a thing of the past, our characters look forward to a future filled with fun, fantasy, and films galore from seaside days to starry winter wonderland nights…
