Is it just me, or is this holiday season looking to be a particularly good one for movies? From the new Bond to the Hobbit, from artsy movies like the Life of Pi to long awaited flicks like Les Miserables to Quentin Tarantino fun like Django Unchained. I might have to live in the theaters!

My Must-See List:
Wreck-It Ralph
Skyfall
Life of Pi
The Hobbit
Les Miserables
Django Unchained

Other Flicks I Want to See:
Anna Karenina
Cloud Atlas
Vamps
Hitchcock
Deadfall
Zero Dark Thirty
Jack Reacher

Wreck-It-Ralph is going to lift my John C. Reilly ban, I can't resist that movie.

I really want to see Life of Pi. I saw the movie poster randomly one day and was awe-struck, I had no idea that one of my favorite books had been filmed.

Les Mis looks fun. It is my wife's favorite musical, but I have never seen it. I was told that there is no lip-syncing in it?

I want to read Cloud Atlas first, probably won't get to it while it is in the theater.

Tom Cruise playing 6'4" Jack Reacher bothers me too much to pay $10 to see it. I will save it for Redbox or Netflix. I enjoy the books though. I normally don't read mystery series, but I got hooked on those.

My 3 year old just went to see her first theatrical movie, Finding Nemo, and did really good. I'm thinking Wreck-it-Ralph for number 2.

Did you pick it for the same reason? Seen it 100 times already at home.

I actually really want to see this movie too. The director/writer's last movie In Bruges was pretty brilliant.

I'm really excited for Lincoln, Life of Pi, and Anna Karenina. I will probably see Les Miserables just for Hugh Jackman.

Oh, and I forgot about Samsara. It's out in the indie theater in downtown SLC. Don't mind if I do...

You were told correctly. The actors sing live on set to a piano in their earpiece. Later, the piano is replaced with the full orchestra.

Check it out.

I also love Les Mis and will be there Christmas Day when it opens in theaters. [Smile]
