2019 was both pretty good and also disappointing movie wise, and the December releases keep with this trend. We are getting a sequel, the very pointless 2nd remake of a cult Horror, the umpteenth adaptation of a classic Louisa May Alcott novel nobody asked for, the new chapter of a huge blockbuster Dan lives for, a creepy looking flick almost entirely shot in CGI, and some very interesting Biography/ Dramas - thanks to Charlize Theron and Clint Eastwood. May them two live forever!

From Universal Pictures
“Little Women explores the lives of the March sisters in 1860s New England, in the aftermath of the American Civil War. According to one of its producers, the new adaptation focuses more on the sisters' young adult lives, particularly after Meg, Jo, and Amy leave their family home. The film jumps back and forth in time and focuses more on themes rather than narrative.”
“A group of women decide to take on Fox News head Roger Ailes and the toxic atmosphere he presided over at the network.”
“The film was based on an article published by Vanity Fair in 1997 and chronicles Richard Jewell’s life during the events that led to an attack at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. Jewell works as a security guard at AT&T when he discovers the plot that resulted in the Centennial Olympic Park bombing. He then heroically saves lives after a bomb was detonated during the 1996 Summer Olympics. However, the FBI identifies him as one of many suspects and this leads to his unjust vilification by journalists and the press.”
