The Blockbuster Report

So this is the final edition of TWIC (This Weekend in Cinema) this year, so it is very minimal. Coming next week will be a complete wrap up of the year in movies, including Oscarwatch, personal favorites, and a conclusion to our source material study (Where Do They Come From?).

I’m bunching all the Christmas releases (and later) in together, so below, you’ll have a sneak peek at where writers got their movie material this year.
