Stuart Little

Gremlins

First rule of Christmas: don’t get the cute new pet wet. Second rule: don’t feed it after midnight. Has there been a better cautionary tale for kids about how to treat mystery gifts?

Carol

Thrown into each other’s orbit through a Christmas gift-buying trip, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara remind us that love, actually, can be as dangerous as it can be intoxicating.

In Bruges

When the holiday cheer becomes too much, satisfy your Christmas grinch with this dark and comic-tragic movie that’s more existential winter nightmare than festive fairy tale.
