It’s the time of year for two kinds of movies now: Christmas-themed movies and ones that wish they won an Oscar nomination.

  • Lions for Lambs. A widely advertised political thriller directed by Robert Redford and starring himself, Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, Michael Pena about how lives of different people (congressman, journalist, an idealistic professor who tries to inspire a student, two wonded soldeirs in Afghanistan) become inter-connected and affect eachother and the rest of the world. You can depend on Redford and Streep to deliver good performances, but will the story be good as well?
  • War/Dance. Limited-release documentary about three children living in refugee camp in Uganda compete in the music and dance festival during that country’s 20-real-long war. Won Best Documentary at Wisconsin Film Festival and Best Documentary Director for Sean Fine and Andrea Nix.
  • No Country for Old Men. Tommy Lee Jones stars in the western/triller/drama about aman with a suitcase of money being chased by a number of individuals. Texas…
  • Fred Claus from Warner Brosers, a holiday comedy starring Vince Vaughn, Paul Giamatti, Kevin Spacey and Elizabeth Banks, about a bitter man Fred who is forced to move to the North pole to help his perfect younger brother Santa to run his toy shop.
  • P2. Drama/triller about a businesswoman who is chased by deranged parking security guy on Christmas eve after everybody has left the office. Starring Wes Bentley, Rachel Nichols, Simon Reynolds. A first attempt at writing and directing by Franck Khalfoun.
  • Christmas in Wonderland, another holiday comedy about three kids who go shopping in the mall and find counterfeit cash, inadvertently help catch the crooks and discover that Santa is…real. Patrick Swayze plays the dad.
  • I believe you. Comedy. A late-night talk radio show gets a phone call from what townspeople think is extraterrestrial and go on an all-out hunt to find identity the caller.
