Some Holiday Flicks: A Roundup of Films for the Festive Season

At the Movies

In my December column last year I coined a term about end-of-year movies, “Bucks vs. Trophies,” by which I meant that movie studios typically load their holiday offerings with either big-budget crowd-pleasers aimed at the family or fan crowd, to earn bucks, or more nuanced, thought-provoking films to earn trophies, awards based on critical attention and prestige. This year again shows that familiar pattern.
