Holiday Films Offer Political Intrigue

I am really looking forward to this year's batch of holiday films.  For those of us who love action packed adventure, December 2011 offers a stocking full of intrigue and fast-paced drama.

At the top of my list is the latest installment of the Mission Impossible franchise --- Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Click on the link to see the trailer. 

The new version of the John le Carre novel Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy with Gary Oldman as George Smiley looks like a great way to begin the month (December 9th release date).  Watch the trailer to see if I'm right.

While not exactly a political thriller Sherlock Holmes - A Game of Shadows is another film that I'm looking forward to.  Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as the world's most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and Jude Law returns as his formidable colleague, Dr. Watson as they chase Dr. Moriarty across Europe.  But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead as he spins a web of death and destruction --- all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.   With that order of magnitude, maybe the second edition of Holmes is more than a mystery.  Its coming out on December 16th.

Invite your movie buddy, get your tickets, buy some popcorn and get ready for an action-packed holiday!
