This Weekend in Movies – Christmas 2008

As always during the holidays, the majority of this week’s movies are opening or going wide on Christmas Day (with some additional films opening on Friday).

My pick of the many movies opening is Valkyrie. That film is currently sporting a 62% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The best reviewed the the holiday releases are The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which has 77% Fresh rating, Last Chance Harvey, which has a 76% Fresh rating, and Revolutionary Road, which currently has a 73% Fresh rating.

Among the films the critics are frowning upon are Marley and Me, which has a 43% Fresh rating, Bedtime Times, with a 16% Fresh rating, and The Spirit, which only has a 14% Fresh rating.

That’s the holiday films. Enjoy them and have a happy holidays!
