A Few Movies in February

Jean Teller November and December found me at the movie theater for Skyfall, Lincoln, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and Les Misérables. And I would recommend any of them. A friend also recommends The Impossible, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty. Another friend says that Hansel and Gretel isn’t that great, so it might go on the to-rent list.

 Lincoln, nominated for a number of Academy Awards, stars Daniel Day Lewis as the 16th president. 

A few others currently in the theater that you might be interested in: Django Unchained, Gangster Squad, Quartet, Broken City. Oh, and The Last Stand. No, wait, forget that one. Arnold did not do well in his return to the box office. We’ll see how his contemporary Sylvester fares with his new release this weekend.

From my rental list, here are a couple of recommendations: Hugo, Brave, and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.

 The Impossible is based on a true story, and it stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor. 

 Quartet stars Pauline Collins and Maggie Smith as retired musicians.
