Community Reactions: Your Thoughts on the Holiday Movie Releases

We also give you the timetable for the 2013 Awards Circuit Community Awards…

wolfofwallstreet_9So many films are opening in theaters today, some just in full release.  Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Peter Berg’s Lone Survivor, John Wells’ August: Osage County, John Lee Hancock’s Saving Mr. Banks, and Ralph Fiennes’ The Invisible Woman.  Wow…that was a mouth full.  And that still doesn’t include David O. Russell’s American Hustle, Justin Chadwick’s Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, and the blockbusters like 47 Ronin that people are catching up with.

Use the comment section below to share your thoughts on the films you’ve seen.  I’ll be using the next six days to prepare to share my thoughts on the 2013 year in film.  I’ll be unveiling my Top Ten of the year as well as the infamous Davis Awards, where I share my dream ballots with you all with some specialty mentions.  Can’t wait to let you all know.

For some that have inquired, our famous Awards Circuit Community Awards or “ACCA” for the year 2013 will open up a little later this year due to late release films like Jason Reitman’s Labor Day.  The same will go for the Staff’s Top Tens and collective awards.  Voting will open up on January 15 for our entire readership to make their voices heard on what the nominees should be.  They will close on February 1 with the nominations being revealed on February 2.  Final voting will open the very next day on February 3 and close on February 8.  Winners will be announced on the February 9th episode of the Awards Circuit Power Hour.

I hope you all enjoyed your holiday (and your whole year in general).

Please include your thoughts on the movies you’ve seen in the comment section.
