Team Swagbucks – Holiday Movie Preview

Hey everyone, this is Hal from Team Swagbucks. Here’s a little info about me – in addition to being from Philadelphia (Merry Cliffmas to you all), I have always been a movie buff – there was a time when I would go see everything the day it came out, and while I can no longer indulge like that, here are three movies coming out in the next few weeks that I’m really excited for:

1. TRON: Legacy – without dating myself too much, I was a huge TRON fan growing up, and Discs of Tron was one of my favorite arcade games, although the cabinet made it really hard to either sit or stand. While a sequel to Steven Lisberger’s 1982 masterpiece was rumored for a long time, it’s finally coming out this Friday, and I can’t wait to see it. Here’s the trailer:

2. Little Fockers – I’ve been a Ben Stiller fan since his ill-fated (and Emmy-winning) TV show back in the early 90s. The original Meet The Parents was so uncomfortably hilarious, and Meet The Fockers grows on me more and more each time I see, so I’m definitely in for this second sequel, if for no other reason than to see how things will get awkward this time. Here’s the trailer:



3. True Grit
– Jeff Bridges has made it onto this list twice! He’s one of those actors who was great when he was younger in films like Starman and The Fabulous Baker Boys and has only gotten better with age. The Coen brothers made him a cult figure with The Big Lebowski, and now they’re giving him the opportunity to fill John Wayne’s shoes (no easy task) in their re-imagining of True Grit. This film looks amazing, and with a killer supporting cast and more award winners involved than you can shake a stick at, this one has the rare opportunity to become a classic in its own right without being compared to the original. Here’s the trailer:

See you at the movies!
