Santa,  Can I see finally go see Star Wars: The Force Awakens?

Yes, Davidcito you can!

With the juggernaut that is Star Wars VII opening this month it is almost easy to miss other movies, that are no slouches by the way, also opening in December. Studios deliver their films with anticipation of discovering which are serious Oscar contenders (Joy, The Revenant and Concussion), surprises like Anomalisa and Youth, and not to mention a few we are looking forward ( The Big Short, Chi-Raq and The World of Kanako).  So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve heard so much about, or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.
