The Only Holiday Movie Buying Guide You Need
It’s the holiday season, which means Christmas lights, eggnog and buying lots of shit. But if you’re in the market for movies this holiday season, look no further than this incredible movie buying guide. All the answers to life’s little questions can be found here, short of answering the reason for our existence.
For people who like action movies… Captain America: The Winter Soldier
The first follow-up to The Avengers has Captain America struggling in a world that is much less black-and-white than he is used to, and uncovering a sinister plot that stretches to the highest levels of government. Great action and a smart script make this one of the best Marvel adaptations to date.
For people who really like action movies… Edge of Tomorrow
Tom Cruise’s sci-fi action thriller flopped in theaters, but it is legitimately one of the most exciting, entertaining and smartest movies of the year. The movie is about a soldier who dies within minutes in a battle with alien invaders, but who wakes up hours earlier only to relive his death over and over again. He uses his knowledge of the near future to adapt to the enemy’s tactics.
For people who like movies about the end of humanity and lots of subtitles… Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Despite the first movie being surprisingly good, this sequel is shockingly better. Set several years after Caesar led his apes into the forest north of San Francisco, the human race has largely been wiped out by disease and war. When survivors set out to restore a hydroelectric dam, they encounter a growing ape civilization that is less than trusting of its human predecessors.
For people who like a little comedy with their action … 22 Jump Street
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill return as dumb, bromantic cops who, after surviving high school, go under cover at college. Their devotion to their case—which, as the movie readily admits, is exactly the same as the case they investigated in the previous movie (a drug ring)—is put into question when Tatum finds a new bromantic partner at a fraternity and Hill meets a sexy college student. 22 Jump Street is arguably better than the first one, with plenty of laughs to go around.
