Give me your movie recommendations

(The Hobbit, the first movie we saw in 5 months.)

It's not an original complaint from new parents, and, honestly, it's not a complaint at all. Ever since Ellie came along Gina and I haven't been able to see movies like we used to. We weren't every-weekend moviegoers when it was just the two of us, but we did go pretty regularly. But before we went on a movie binge and saw The Hobbit, Jack Reacher, and Lincoln in the last couple weeks, we hadn't been to a movie since The Dark Knight Rises in July.

We know we've missed stuff, and we've gone back to the list of releases month by month for the last half of 2012. We have our list of stuff we still want to see, but we also want your recommendations. What did you see the second part of 2012 that we should also see? Keep in mind that we are blockbuster people. We don't go in much for the character studies, or the relationship dramas. We like things like The Hobbit and The Dark Knight Rises. Big budgets, big sets, big action

So, let's hear it. What do you recommend?


  1. Hi Jarrett,

    Rise of the Guardians was excellent. Argo was good, as well, but don't take it for a documentary. Even the narrative at the beginning is completely inaccurate. You have fun!

  2. We have a list of things we want to see. Both of those are on there. I've heard good things about Argo, but even better things about Rise of the Guardians. I was a little surprised that it seemed to quietly come and go from the theaters. Or is it still going? I think I've seen it still playing a few places.

  3. I think it's still around here. And DEFINITELY see SKYFALL.

  4. We were going to see Skyfall last weekend, but it didn't start until almost 8:30. We couldn't be out that late. Or didn't want to be, rather.
