With Christmas less than two weeks away, were you all shopped out and ready to veg out in your local movie theater? Within that darkened haven, the sea had risen, the stars were shining and the hunger games exploded. During these sweet days, faith was ironically found in the eyes of a boxer (along with the usual eyes of a child).
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 2 once again played well with audiences looking for a Jennifer Lawrence sighting before her next “festive” film, Joy enters the cinematic race. A race for survival was occurring In the Heart of the Sea, where Ron Howard’s homage to Herman Melville’s, Moby Dick gave audiences a peek at Chris Hemsworth Christmas Wish List (#1 being reaching dry land then, naturally, reaching a top box-office spot). Krampus, sure to end up on the Naughty List, was once again scaring those kids who found The Good Dinosaur entertaining but too good to be true. Creed, meanwhile, was still fighting the good fight, enticing weary Christmas shoppers into believing in his powerful plight (as opposed to the powers of a good holiday sale).
As Santa Claus gets closer, do you have faith in the powers of make-believe?
