With the holidays exploding all over the place, can our Christmas-seeking characters handle all that competition? Who will be “The Favourite?” Will an Instant Family form instant friendships? Might The Grinch be squeezed out of Whoville, and everywhere-else-ville for that matter, or will we continue to find the value residing deep, waaaay deep down in his grinchy heart? Clumsy but heartfelt, can Ralph Breaks the Internet remain our favorite animated breakout star? Will audiences be welcoming those Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald into their hearts all season long? Will the melodious sounds of the season soon be drowning out Bohemian Rhapsody?
Wanting to feel the magic only the holidays inspire, without having to stand in long lines, might Creed II have us believing in the true meaning of Christmas (successful movies) or will Robin Hood, who’s always breaking the rules, steal from the rich (the aforementioned successful movies) while giving to the poor (those movies that have no shot of breaking out?)
Of course, if soul-stealing is more your thing, The Possession of Hannah Grace is sure to grab your attention this weekend alongside that desperate Anna and the Apocalypse, where zombies are promising to (permanently) end those holiday blues.
Strangely intrigued by all that horror occurring during the holidays, those scrappy Widows have faded a bit into the background but are still doing their part to bring a bit of meaning to the lonely-hearted moviegoers.
Where will your heart find a bit of movie meaning this weekend?
