Best Holiday-Break Movie Picks

With only a few days left on the holiday break (and if you decide to take a pause from catching up on your reading) we thought we'd give you a list of the movies you don't want to miss before school and/or work rear their ugly heads!

(it's a tie!)

WARHORSE packs an emotional punch. We laughed, cried (tears of joy and sorrow), sighed, held our breath, cringed, had to close our eyes, cheered - you name it. Bring plenty of tissue and be prepared to be emotionally drained by the end. FYI: we think it's way too intense for younger children. We could barely handle it!

SHERLOCK HOLMES, GAME OF SHADOWS took everything we loved about the first movie and added more! More action, more drama, more humor, more Holmes/Watson interaction, more great characters (Sherlock has a brother - the magnificent Stephen Fry), and an awesome ending! 


MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL wasn't even on our "must see" list so we were surprised at how much we enjoyed it. Thrills, super stunts, humor, excitement, drama. Action junkies can't go wrong!


Not for the faint of heart, but if you love suspense thrillers (and the book) GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO is a terrific edge-of-your-seat ride. Just don't expect Daniel Craig to be James Bond-esque. It's Lisbeth (Rooney Mara) that wears the kick-butt pants in this duo. 


THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN captivates the whole clan!


HUGO was not quite what we were expecting but definitely interesting, unique and has a great message. But be prepared, Jude Law is barely in it at all, despite what you might think from the marketing campaign.  

What movies have you enjoyed over the holiday season?

I have seen Warhorse, fantastic movie I agree.

I do not like when they make it like someone is in a movie a lot and then the person is hardly there at all

Tales of Whimsy said...

Good to know Warhorse is that good!

I love these mini reviews!!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Oh I am still on the fence about War Horse. Emotional is exactly why!

But the others, I think I need to see them!

Golden Eagle said...

I loved the book Hugo is based on; I'm interested to see how they did the movie.

Thanks for the reviews!

Apparently I live under a rock because I haven't even heard about War Horse. I'll have to check out the trailer now to see what it's about.

Jenny said...

Okay, I really want to see War Horse but I will NOT be able to handle it if that horse dies which it sounds like might be the case. I just cant sit through two hours of loving and rooting for that animal to have it die on me. Old Yeller scarred me for life!

Lea (YA Book Queen) said...

I am so tempted to go to the movies now! Glad to hear that the Sherlock Holmes sequel was even better than the first movie. You've got me a bit curious about a Warhorse too...

*sigh* Now I can't decide what I want to see. They all sound awesome,

My husband and I went to see The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo last night. If we had known about the horrific rape scene, we never would have gone. I almost had to leave the theater. Instead, I stared at the floor while listening the girl screaming.

Yep, we would have been better off seeing Breaking Dawn.
