New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve celebrates love, hope, forgiveness, second chances and fresh starts, in the intertwining stories told amidst the pulse and promise of New York City on the most dazzling night of the year. — (C) Warner Bros

Scott’s Take

Another movie in the Valentine’s Day mold that throws 36 million stars together and tries to string together a few different story lines. No thank you!

Steve’s Take

Yes it is another “throw all the stars together” movie. It is easy to draw people in to this kind of movie because you are attracting so many different kinds of people to it because of the different levels of star power. I’m sure that it will have a decent showing because of the star power and because of the time of year. Check it out if you’ve got nothing better to do.

The Sitter

When the world’s most irresponsible babysitter takes three of the world’s worst kids on an unforgettable overnight adventure through the streets of New York City, it’s anyone’s guess who’s going to make it home in one piece. The Sitter is a new level of twisted and debauched hilarity from the director of Pineapple Express, starring Jonah Hill. — (C) Official Site

Scott’s Take

I like Jonah Hill but this looks like an unfunny remake of Adventures in Babysitting, I’ll wait for DVD.

Steve’s Take

This movie does nothing for me. I’m with Scott on this one. Wait for DVD.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Based on the classic novel of the same name, the international thriller is set at the height of the Cold War years of the mid-20th Century. George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a disgraced British spy, is rehired in secret by his government – which fears that the British Secret Intelligence Service, a.k.a. MI-6, has been compromised by a double agent working for the Soviets. — (C) Focus Features

Scott’s Take

I have already seen one great spy thriller this year in The Debt. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is supposed to be better. Who doesn’t love a great spy flick. Count me in!!

Steve’s Take

I missed The Debt, so I am all in on this one.

Young Adult

Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn’t quite gotten over high school, either. — (C) Paramount

Scott’s Take

Charlize, Charlize, Charlize. Why must you always try to mask your beauty? You had my vote as prettiest actress in Hollywood. Ever since the day I saw Monster, I question all things life related. Seriously, movie looks like the anti Juno. Could be worth a look-see!

Steve’s Take

See Scott’s take.

Next Week

That’s all for this week. Next week it’s sequel mania. Sherlock Holmes:A Game of Shadows, Mission:Impossible Ghost Protocal and…wait for it…..Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. Really? Have a great weekend!
