Top 20 Movies to Look Out For in November (2018)

According to: Cat

20 – Overlord (11/9)

Tag Line: Stop The Unstoppable
Production Companies: Paramount Pictures, Bad Robot
Director: Julius Avery
Writers: Billy Ray, Mark L. Smith
Actors: Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Pilou Asbæk, Mathilde Ollivier, John Magaro, Iain De Caestecker, Jacob Anderson, Dominic Applewhite
Genre: Horror, Action, Mystery, Thriller
Rated: R
Length: 110 minutes

IMDb Blurb: On the eve of D-Day, American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion's success. But as they approach their target, they begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. They find themselves fighting against supernatural forces, part of a Nazi experiment.

Who doesn’t love a good war story about punching Nazis? Okay… so that isn’t the whole deal, and there’s definitely the supernatural aspect involved. I’ll be honest, the trailers for this movie have left me scratching my head a bit. I’m intrigued enough that I really want to see the movie, though – if only to figure out what the heck is really going on. 

19 – Nobody's Fool (11/2)

Tag Line: She Shows Up. Everything Blows Up.
Production Companies: BET Films, Paramount Players, Tyler Perry Studios
Director: Tyler Perry
Writer: Tyler Perry
Actors: Tiffany Haddish, Tika Sumpter, Omari Hardwick, Mehcad Brooks, Amber Riley, Whoopi Goldberg
Genre: Comedy
Rated: R
Length: 110 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A woman is released from prison and reunites with her sister. She soon discovers that her sister is in an online relationship with a man who may not be what he seems.

At first blush this looked like a zany mess. Don’t get me wrong, those types of movies are typically really funny and enjoyable. The sibling dynamic with the straight-laced one vs. the problem child is an often seen trope. What I like about this is the modern twist involving the ‘good girl’ with a catfish problem. With Halloween behind us and the busy holiday season ahead, this looks like a fun movie for a good laugh before life gets hectic again.

18 – Pokemon the Movie: The Power of Us (11/24)

Tag Line: None
Production Companies: Oriental Light and Magic (OLM), Pikachu Project, TV Tokyo, The Pokemon Company, Wit Studio
Director: Tetsuo Yajima
Writers: Aya Takaha, Eiji Umehara
Actors: James Carter Cathcart, Megumi Hayashibara, Laurie Hymes, Inuko Inuyama, Unshô Ishizuka, Michele Knotz, Eddy Lee, Rica Matsumoto, Shin'ichirô Miki, Sarah Natochenny, Rodger Parsons, Ikue Ôtani, Erica Schroeder
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Family
Rated: Unrated
Length: 105 minutes

Rottentomatoes Blurb:  A young athlete whose running days might be behind her, a compulsive liar, a shy researcher, a bitter old woman, and a little girl with a big secret--the only thing they have in common is the annual Wind Festival in Fula City. The festival celebrates the Legendary Pokémon Lugia, who brings the wind that powers this seaside city. When a series of threats endangers not just the festival, but all the people and Pokémon of Fula City, it'll take more than just Ash and Pikachu to save the day! Can everyone put aside their differences and work together--or will it all end in destruction?

Pokémon has had a monumental resurgence in recent years with the advent of the Pokémon Go game. People of all ages are getting in on the fun. One of these franchise movies is generally a safe bet for a younger audience, and great for families too. If you’re looking for something to distract the kids with so you can do Christmas shopping, this might be just the ticket. (Or you can watch, too, and take care of the shopping later!)

17 – Green Book (11/21)

Tag Line: Inspired by a True Friendship
Production Companies: DreamWorks (as DreamWorks Pictures), Participant Media, Amblin Partners, Innisfree Pictures, Wessler Entertainment
Director: Peter Farrelly
Writers: Nick Vallelonga, Brian Hayes Currie, Peter Farrelly
Actors: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini, Sebastian Maniscalco, Dimiter D. Marinov, P.J. Byrne, Montrel Miller
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Rated: PG-13
Length: 130 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A working-class Italian-American bouncer becomes the driver of an African-American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the 1960s American South.

I like a good story about an unlikely or unexpected friendship. This seems like it might be a bit like Remember the Titans (2000) with a pair that starts out grudgingly put together, and then results in a deep bond amidst a time at the height of the civil rights movement. These are important stories to tell in this day and age. We still have so much to learn about acceptance and equality. Of course, the fact that this is based on real people and the cast includes some of the real family members makes this that much more poignant.   

16 – The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (11/16)

Tag Line: How the West Was Won (more or less)
Production Companies: Mike Zoss Productions, Netflix, Annapurna Pictures
Directors:  Joel Coen, Ethan Coen
Writers: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen
Actors: Tim Blake Nelson, Willie Watson, David Krumholtz, James Franco, Stephen Root, Ralph Ineson, Liam Neeson, Harry Melling, Zoe Kazan, Brendan Gleeson, Clancy Brown, Tyne Daly
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Western, Anthology
Rated: R
Length: 132 minutes

IMDb Blurb: Follows the story of two trail bosses on the Oregon Trail and a woman on the wagon train who needs the help of one of them and who might be a marriage prospect for the other.

You know, the blurb for this one is rather confusing. The trailer paints a much better picture. That’s almost literally – I’m pretty sure one of the backgrounds of this western was one of those old fashioned painted ones, rather than CGI.

This is listed as an anthology, though the trailer seems to suggest that the various tales that comprise it are well connected. I’ve always had a soft spot for westerns. These period pieces give us a window to a simpler time when decisions were more about practicality and survival set against the magnificent backdrop of yet untamed nature.

At the same time, this one appears to blend a hefty dose of comedy for a refreshing take on the genre. I’m excited that it will be available on Netflix. 

15 – The Clovehitch Killer (11/16)

Tag Line: None
Production Companies: End Cue, IFC Midnight
Director: Duncan Skiles
Writer: Christopher Ford
Actors: Dylan McDermott, Charlie Plummer, Samantha Mathis, Madisen Beaty, Brenna Sherman, Lance Chantiles-Wertz
Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Rated: Unrated
Length: 110 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A picture-perfect family is shattered when the work of a serial killer hits too close to home. Dylan McDermott stars in this chilling portrait of all-American evil.

The trailer for this one actually made my skin crawl. I wanted to reach into my laptop screen and yank that kid to safety. The idea of a serial killer potentially living right under your nose – even actually being one of your family members is a sickening one. Teachers, scout leaders, and clergy are all positions of authority within our lives that make such an impact on our children. They’re supposed to be callings that are sacrosanct and pure. Yet every day we hear more and more about those that abuse their position to take advantage of children. It’s terrifying that it is that kind of world that we live in – and it makes the premise of this film all that more plausible. I’ll be watching this one with bated breath and pounding heart. 

14 – A Private War (11/16)

Tag Line: The Most Powerful Weapon is the Truth
Production Companies: Acacia Filmed Entertainment, Denver and Delilah Productions, Thunder Road Pictures, Kamala Films, Savvy Media Holdings
Director: Matthew Heineman
Writers: Marie Brenner, Arash Amel
Actors: Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Tom Hollander, Stanley Tucci, Jérémie Laheurte, Hilton McRae, Fady Elsayed, Raad Rawi
Genre: Drama, Biography, War
Rated: R
Length: 106 minutes

IMDb Blurb: One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.

Watching the trailer, the first word that came to mind was ‘intense.’ I can’t imagine the harrowing circumstances that war correspondents put themselves in. Anderson Cooper (Chappie, The 33, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice) comes to mind whenever I think of situations and stories like these. It’s not because he’s the silver-haired-fox news anchor that can often be seen broadcasting from disaster zones and the like. It’s because watching him report from the Middle East during the Channel One News (1990-2008), that preceded my homeroom classes throughout high school, burned into my consciousness the sort of danger these journalists willingly put themselves in for the sake of shedding light on events in person.

Of course, Cooper dodging bullets was a running gag throughout that timeframe much like memes circulate today – but never once would I ever forget those images. I remember asking myself what could possess someone to seek that sort of thing out on purpose. I think this movie, based on a true story, seems to beautifully encapsulate that answer. 

13 – The Favourite (11/23)

Tag Line: None
Production Companies: Film4, Element Pictures, Scarlet Films, Waypoint Entertainment
Director: Yorgos Lanthimos
Writers: Deborah Davis, Tony McNamara
Actors: Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Nicholas Hoult, Joe Alwyn, James Smith, Mark Gatiss, Jenny Rainsford
Genre: Historical Drama
Rated: R
Length: 120 minutes

IMDb Blurb: In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne (Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Weisz) governs the country in her stead. When a new servant Abigail (Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.

I have mentioned before how I enjoy a period piece now and again, yes? Between the stunning cast and the comedic filter through which we’re enjoying this slice of history; I’d have to say that this movie looks immensely enjoyable. 

12 – Creed II (11/21)

Tag Line: Your Legacy is More Than a Name
Production Companies: Winkler Films, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, New Line Cinema, Warner Bros.
Director: Steven Caple Jr.
Writers: Cheo Hodari Coker, Ryan Coogler, Sascha Penn, Sylvester Stallone, Juel Taylor
Actors: Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Florian Munteanu, Andre Ward, Phylicia Rashad
Genre: Drama, Sports
Rated: PG-13
Length: Unknown

IMDb Blurb: Under the tutelage of Rocky Balboa, newly crowned light heavyweight champion Adonis Creed faces off against Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago.

I’m not the biggest fan of boxing, but these movies hold a special place in my heart. Rocky IV (1985) was the first Rated R movie I watched in a theater. Part of that thrill comes from the fact that my friend’s brother and I snuck in to see it. I was supposed to be watching a PG movie at the time. Ah, the sweet taste of forbidden fruit! (He wasn’t the best influence to hang out with – he got me lost at the zoo once during his sister’s birthday party. It was the same year! I was 8. True story. I digress.)

Aside from that, I actually remember a bit of the plot. Right there in the middle of the Cold War, we have the menacing Russian juggernaut of a boxer, Drago; facing off against the beloved Rocky Balboa. Dolph Lundgren (War Pigs, Expendables 3, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming) really sold that part and made quite the impression on young me.

Fast forward to the future, and we have Drago out for a grudge match vicariously through his son – to fight the son of the man he killed in the ring all those years ago. This one is sure to tug the heartstrings. I’ll be honest that I didn’t watch the last Creed (2015) movie; however, I wouldn’t mind giving this one a go to see how things work out!

11 – Widows (11/16)

Tag Line: Left with nothing. Capable of anything.
Production Companies: Regency Enterprises, See-Saw Films, Film4, New Regency Pictures, 20th Century Fox
Director: Steve McQueen
Writers: Gillian Flynn, Steve McQueen, Lynda La Plante
Actors: Viola Davis, Colin Farrell, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki, Cynthia Erivo, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Jacki Weaver, Liam Neeson, Jon Bernthal, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Robert Duvall, Elizabeth Debicki, Molly Kunz, Carrie Coon
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Rated: R
Length: 128 minutes

IMDb Blurb: Set in contemporary Chicago, amidst a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.

The husbands are all kick-ass. The wives are all kick-ass. I really think that this will be a kick-ass movie. That's ass-kickery to the third power. Do I really need more justification than that?

This was actually a really rough month for ordering my top movie picks. There were just so many that I got excited about for various reasons. All that aside, this looks to be a solid action-thriller with a hefty heaping serving of girl-power. It's definitely worth a shot!

10 – Anna and the Apocalypse (11/30)

Tag Line: Oh the weather outside is frightful...
Production Companies: Orion Pictures, Forward Films, Black Camel Pictures, Blazing Griffin, Constellation Creatives, Parkhouse Pictures
Director: John McPhail
Writers: Alan McDonald, Ryan McHenry
Actors: Ella Hunt, Sarah Swire, Christopher Leveaux, Ben Wiggins, Mark Benton, Paul Kaye, Calum Cormack
Genre: Horror, Musical Comedy
Rated: R
Length: 92 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven - at Christmas - forcing Anna and her friends to fight, slash and sing their way to survival, facing the undead in a desperate race to reach their loved ones. But they soon discover that no one is safe in this new world, and with civilization falling apart around them, the only people they can truly rely on are each other.

Now we’re starting to get down to the real nitty gritty.

Zombie movies are epic, and musicals really rock my socks. Naturally, when someone has found a way to combine these into an apocalyptically awesome musical; I ask when I can start buying tickets. 

9 – Dead in a Week: Or Your Money Back (11/16)

Tag Line: Even assassins have to hit their targets.
Production Companies: Guild of Assassins, Rather Good Films
Director: Tom Edmunds
Writer: Tom Edmunds
Actors: Christopher Eccleston, Aneurin Barnard, Tom Wilkinson, Freya Mavor, Gethin Anthony, Nigel Lindsay, Marion Bailey, Emma Campbell-Jones, Velibor Topic, Marcia Warren
Genre: Action, Comedy, Drama
Rated: Unrated
Length: 90 minutes

IMDb Blurb: After his ninth unsuccessful attempt on his own life, a young man outsources his suicide to an ageing assassin. "If you're serious about ending it, you need professional help"

I get all giddy inside with the prospect of a British comedy. Combine that with my respect for the ability of Tom Wilkinson (Selma, The Catcher Was a Spy, The Titan), and we have a winner here. 

8 – Jonathan (11/16)

Tag Line: None
Production Companies: Before The Door Pictures, Oxwich Media, Great Point Media, Manis Film, Raised by Wolves
Director: Billy Oliver
Writers: Gregory Davis, Peter Nickowitz, Bill Oliver
Actors: Ansel Elgort, Suki Waterhouse, Patricia Clarkson, Joe Egender, Matt Bomer, Douglas Hodge, Souléymane Sy Savané, Ian Unterman, Jeff Kim
Genre: Drama, Sci-Fi
Rated: Unrated
Length: 105 minutes

IMDb Blurb: Jonathan leaves the office everyday at noon. When he gets home, he goes to sleep. Every morning he wakes up and there is a breakfast prepared for him along with a video telling him about the second part of his day.

This new spin on a multiple-personalities or dual consciousness story is interesting to me. I have always wondered how someone with this particular condition would handle a relationship. I also have a significant amount of curiosity as to what the sci-fi element to this tale is. 

One thing I do know is that the cast here is amazing. Patricia Clarkson (Easy A, The Maze Runner, The Bookshop) as the doctor has me wondering if there’s more to her character than the trailer suggests. Though Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars, Baby Driver, November Criminals) sells it for me. I have been increasingly impressed with the roles that I have seen him in. I can’t wait to see how he maneuvers through this challenging character pair.

7 – The Grinch (11/9)

Tag Line: Resting Grinch Face
Production Companies: Universal Pictures, Illumination Entertainment
Directors: Scott Mosier, Yarrow Cheney
Writers: Michael LeSieur, Dr. Seuss, Tommy Swerdlow
Actors: Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Cameron Seely, Angela Lansbury, Pharrell, Kenan Thompson,
Genre: Animation, Comedy, Family
Rated: PG
Length: 90 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A grumpy Grinch plots to ruin Christmas for the village of Whoville.

Dr. Seuss’s holiday tale is timeless, and the original animation is a classic. I don’t necessarily think that this is an attempt to replace it – at least, I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt there. It’s a fun story with a good message. Aside from that, Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, Sherlock, The Current War) and Angela Lansbury (Nanny McPhee, Mr Popper's Penguins, Little Women) make this automatically watchable. I’ve seen where this is also mentioned as a musical. I’m curious to see if there are any new songs!

6 – Robin Hood (11/21)

Tag Line: The legend you know. The story you don't.
Production Companies: Lionsgate, Les Films Séville, Appian Way, Entertainment One, Thunder Road Pictures, Safehouse Pictures
Director: Otto Bathurst
Writers: Ben Chandler, David James Kelly
Actors: Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn, Eve Hewson, Tim Minchin, Jamie Dornan, Paul Anderson
Genre: Action, Adventure
Rated: PG-13
Length: 115 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.

What can I say? I'm a sucker for a good Robin Hood story. It's one of my favorites. That being said, I'll probably watch any movie giving a spin on the tale. While I'm not sure how a new iteration will stand up to my favorite, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991), these movies are generally highly entertaining. 

5 – The Girl in the Spider's Web (11/9)

Tag Line: The Past Never Forgets
Production Companies: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, New Regency Pictures, Pascal Pictures, Scott Rudin Productions, Sony Pictures Entertainment, The Cantillon Company, Yellow Bird
Director: Fede Alvarez
Writers: Jay Basu, Fede Alvarez, Steven Knight, David Lagercrantz, Stieg Larsson
Actors: Claire Foy, Sverrir Gudnason, Lakeith Stanfield, Sylvia Hoeks, Stephen Merchant, Claes Bang, Christopher Convery, Vicky Krieps
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama, Thriller
Rated: Unrated
Length: 117 minutes

IMDb Blurb: Young computer hacker Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist find themselves caught in a web of spies, cybercriminals and corrupt government officials.

The Dragon Tattoo stories seem to give a peek into a dark, almost cyber-punk world. I was fascinated with the first movie, and my reaction to this new one was no less. I like that there seems to be a bit more action in this one, as well. The heroine might be a bit unorthodox, but the edgy character is still a strong badass. 

4 – Bohemian Rhapsody (11/2)

Tag Line: The only thing more extraordinary than their music is his story
Production Companies: 20th Century Fox, GK Films, New Regency Pictures, Queen Films Ltd., Regency Enterprises, Tribeca Productions
Director: Bryan Singer
Writers: Anthony McCarten, Peter Morgan
Actors: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Aaron McCusker, Max Bennett, Ace Bhatti, Michelle Duncan, Meneka Das, Priya Blackburn, Philip Andrew
Genre: Historical Drama, Biography, Music
Rated: PG-13
Length: 135 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A chronicle of the years leading up to Queen's legendary appearance at the Live Aid (1985) concert.

I have been agonizing over where I wanted to place this movie on my list this month. I am both super excited about it and on the fence at the same time. I am a big fan of the band Queen, and firmly believe that Freddie Mercury (1946-1991) had one of the best voices of all time. His range was amazing and he could go from a rock song to singing opera with seemingly effortless finesse. His voice graces some of my favorite songs of all time – surprise surprise,, they’re from the Highlander (1986) franchise soundtracks– both the movies and series. His music is uplifting, fun, and sometimes ironic and tragic when you consider how short his life was and songs like ‘Who Wants to Live Forever?’

I digress.

One has to ask who could possibly fill such shoes to accurately pull off this role. Mercury was such a complex individual. More than that – would you possibly have someone else actually singing his parts in the movie (and likely paling in comparison to the magnificence of his vocal talent) or do they play actual Queen tracks?

The answer this film is providing is that they have mixed Freddie’s voice with another singer to create the movie vocals – though, it isn’t the voice of Rami Malek (Need for Speed, Papillon, Mr. Robot), whom was cast in the Mercury role.

I think they made a brilliant decision with Malek. Watching him in the trailers and promotional images and the like has been outright eerie. I have faith that he will do the part justice. As a Queen fan, himself, I believe he will have approached this from a respectful position.

It’s quite the story to tell, really, and I think it’s going to have made a wonderful movie – albeit sad, since we did lose Mercury in 1991. My husband has a VHS of the Live Aid concert this movie focuses on. The unity of the audience participation is stunning. So many people lifting their voices and moving in time with the music under the direction of the phenomenal Freddie Mercury.  Those that love Freddie might just want to bring along some tissues – that might just be me… but I’m just saying.

3 – Ralph Breaks the Internet (11/21)

Tag Line: None
Production Company: Walt Disney Animation Studios, Walt Disney Pictures
Directors: Phil Johnston, Rich Moore
Writers: Phil Johnston, Rich Moore, Jim Reardon, Pamela Ribon
Actors: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Taraji P. Henson, Kristen Bell, Auli'i Cravalho
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Rated: PG
Length: Unknown

IMDb Blurb: Six years after the events of "Wreck-It Ralph", Ralph and Vanellope, now friends, discover a wi-fi router in their arcade, leading them into a new adventure.

“The bunny gets the pancakes!”  When the trailer for this movie first came out, I was lost somewhere between astonished shock and peals of laughter. I swear I adore the writers behind these movies. I love all the nostalgic nods to video games and their characters… but I have a suspicion that they’re also Monty Python fans. The part of the movie I quoted, showcased in one of the trailers, is highly reminiscent of  The Autumn Years segment of The Meaning of Life (1983). Beware the ‘wafer thin’ mints!

I’m excited for this movie, which should be a great choice for family holiday outings. It doesn’t seem to have any less humor and heart than the first one, and I’m dying to find out how Ralph fares in the vastness of the net. 

2 – Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (11/16)

Tag Line: The fate of one will change the future of all.
Production Companies: Heyday Films, Warner Bros. Pictures, Wigram Productions
Director: David Yates
Writer: J.K. Rowling
Actors: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, Zoë Kravitz, Katherine Waterston, Carmen Ejogo, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, Kevin Guthrie, Jamie Campbell Bower, Toby Regbo,
Genre: Adventure, Family, Fantasy
Rated: PG-13
Length: 134 minutes

IMDb Blurb: The second installment of the "Fantastic Beasts" series set in J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World featuring the adventures of magizoologist Newt Scamander.

Do I REALLY need to explain why this one is near the very top of my list? I’m apparently a Ravenclaw, so explaining seems to be in my wheelhouse – but honestly, it’s a movie in the Potterverse. Just go see it. It’ll be awesome. 

1 – The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (11/2)

Tag Line: Let the mystery unfold.
Production Companies: The Mark Gordon Company, Walt Disney Pictures
Directors: Lasse Hallström , Joe Johnston
Writers: Ashleigh Powell, E.T.A. Hoffmann, Marius Petipa
Actors: Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Eugenio Derbez, Matthew McFadyen, Richard E. Grant, Misty Copeland, Dame Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman
Genre: Adventure, Family, Fantasy
Rated: PG
Length: 99 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A young girl is transported into a magical world of gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice.

I couldn’t help but list this movie at the very tip-top. The Nutcracker is one of my favorite holiday stories. I absolutely adore the ballet and the music, as well. It has everything – magic and mystery, romance and action. There are elements of the fantastical around every corner – sugar plum fairies and nutcracker princes.

Aside from the fairytale behind the story of the movie, the film absolutely looks gorgeous. If the trailers are any indication of the movie on the whole, the magical quality has been captured well. The cast looks magnificent, and there seems to be a few twists thrown in to make everything fresh.

This should be well worth the ticket price, and a wonderful holiday experience for the family.
