As the winter break draws closer, the amount of free time for students and teachers grows more and more. With this free time, both students and teachers should go to their local theatre and catch some upcoming films coming out this month.
“I really want to see Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip Wrecked,” said junior Austin Huddle. “Who doesn’t love cute furry adorable chipmunks who sing better than Justin Beiber, plus the first two were really good family films.”
Another great film to catch this weekend is the new Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol movie which is the fourth in the series.
“I’m excited to see the new Mission Impossible movie because none of the past films have been bad so far, and there’s going to be the usual explosions, guns and cool cars which is what I like to see,” junior Bryan Miller said.
So for those looking to see an action packed thriller, the new Mission Impossible may be the right film for you. However, if your not a fan of Tom Cruise, there is another action thriller coming out next weekend.
“I want to see a movie called The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” junior Rachel Richardson said. “The previews really caught my eye, it’s a Swedish thriller coming out December 23 and from what I’ve seen in the trailers, the movie consists of a lot of mystery and violence.”
If you’re a fan of the Sherlock Holmes book series, or if you simply want to see a film with a lot of twists and turns and mystery involved, the new Sherlock Holmes sequel may be the right film for you.
“I have highly anticipated the movie Sherlock Holmes: The Game of Shadows. I saw the first one on DVD and thought it was great. It had good action lots of special effects and the previews just looked ground breaking,” Biology teacher, Oscar Velasquez said.
Unlike most sequels, Sherlock Holmes: The Game of Shadows is expected to surpass the standards set by the first film.
“I expect it to be better than or equal at minimal to the previous Sherlock Holmes film, because the films are based on the series of books which has a new exciting adventure in each novel. This means that the film series will be fresh and there wont be a dull moment,” Velasquez said.
