Crushable’s 2010 Holiday Movie Guide

The weather is changing, it may start snowing this week, and we’re already stressing out about family interactions. What does that mean? The holidays are almost here!

But before you start stressing about Thanksgiving, or Christmas. Or Hanukkah. Or Kwanzaa. Or Christmakkah. There is something to celebrate at the movies. Whatever you like or don’t like about the upcoming festivities, there’s no denying that Hollywood saves some of its best films for the fall season. There are so many movies coming out over the next two months, that we thought we’d help you navigate this year’s slate of holiday movies. Check out what’s coming out this fall, poke around, and watch a few trailers, courtesy of Crushable.

We’re pretty sure Unstoppable is going to be awesome. Awesomely terrible. Denzel Washington and Chris Pine star in this runaway train thriller – think Speed plus train tracks. The movie’s about a train that loses brake power and barrels through small towns, causing major trauma to track-crossing cars and children – and threatening to smash into the end of the train line’s station and tracks. Though the train seems unstoppable (duh), Denzel and Chris work harder than ever before to figure out how to stop the train and save the day. Meanwhile, Rosario Dawson relays the train’s progression to executives and terrified onlookers. But probably in a sexy way?

USA Today named Tiny Furniture as one of three indie films to go see this year, and it may either be impossible twee or delightful. Lena Dunham directs this little flick about graduating from college, moving back home, and trying to do what you think you want to do. It’s hard to tell if it’s going to inspire or depress you – but between all the tiny furniture, witty hipsters and references to people who are internet famous, it may be the best/worst film of the season.

I shouldn’t have to explain why seeing this is so important. The most beloved threesome, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson take the world by storm yet again in their seventh appearance in the Harry Potter movie series. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is sure to be the most fast paced movie of theirs yet. Voldemort’s power has been growing since Harry was a baby – and now that Harry’s old (and super hot), Voldemort is ready to finally end him. There will be a lot of broken hearts out there knowing that after seeing this there’s only one more to go.
