A Hobbit and a Hustle

The holidays are THE time for stepping “Out of the Furnace” and into the light of a Santa-loving movie day. Fortunately, our star-studded cast is doing their part to make the holidays brighter. Has the “American Hustle” and bustle of holiday shopping taken a toll on you? Perhaps a trip back to the fashionably-challenged 1970s will ease those frazzled nerves (while providing an extra dose of Jennifer Lawrence). “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas” also promises to provide an entertaining alternative to long lines and cyber sales. “The Hobbit: (replaces) The Desolation of Smaug” for a very merry trip to the local multiplex, where Bilbo and his dwarf buddies, in addition to a host of other eclectic tagalongs, find friendship and contentment in our cozy, big screen community. Within our cinematic commune, the “Hunger Games: (are still) Catching Fire” and warming up our animated friends stuck in a “Frozen” kingdom, where singing snowmen lament the trials of an eternal winter. Movie lovers, meanwhile, may be lamenting the cold but are surely praising the perpetual light that, ironically, has been cast on “Thor: (and)The Dark World.” Between the holiday festivities and our fantastic films, will that light soon dim? Will all those scrooge-like villains be vanquished from our well-lit world?
Thankfully, even arrogant dragons can’t keep the light from dimming on our movie universe, where it may be frosty, but the hearts of moviegoers are guaranteed to be warmed by our unlimited array of tantalizing tall tales.
The holidays, hobbits and all, are happily here…
