It’s here. December that is. It’s here and as always it brings quite a few things. It brings the end of the year. It brings Christmas. And, most importantly, it brings the beginning of the award season. As the Golden Globe nominations are about to be announced on the 11th, things are heating up and we have quite a few movies that want to be on that list. Plus, of course, we have our usual dose of TV show recommendations for you, 6 movies & 6 TV shows for the 12th month of the year. Here are December’s Finest!

Movies:

Let’s begin our wild ride with…

Wild – For those looking for uplifting and emotional journeys.

What? One woman who’s longing to be announced on the 11th is Reese Witherspoon. And it seems she’s got a pretty good chance as she portrays the true story of Cheryl Strayed, a woman with nothing to lose who decided to go on a 1000 mile hike armed with nothing more than determination. Seems like a captivating adventure.

When? Dec. 12, 2014

Who? Christian Bale as Moses would have to take on Joel Edgerton as Rhamses. Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley also accompanies them. Directed by the visionary/awful visionary (cross your preference) Ridley Scott.

What? Christmas is filled with family outing titles (The Hobbit, Annie and Night at the Museum 3) but let’s focus on those not in the Christmas spirit.
The Gambler is a remake of a 1974 crime thriller starring James Caan. The story follows a college professor whose got a bit of a gambling addiction which soon enough attracts some pissed off gangsters after him. His personal life isn’t great either as his mother is dying plus his involved in an affair with one of his students.  Hope the dice roll in his favor.
