My movie addict of a brother and constant movie buddy, Kevin, told me about the must-see movies this first quarter. I absolutely love watching movies, and this got me really excited. Movie buffs out there know for sure which movies are worth their time and two hundred bucks. For those who don’t, here are three great reasons why you should grab that bucket of popcorn and head off to the nearest movie house:

Rated R, 157 minutes, 7.7-IMDB rating, 93% Tomatometer rating. Book a ticket now. Yes, now.
NEXT ATTRACTION: LES MISERABLES – who doesn’t know Valjean, Javert, and Fantine?

These films promise not just pure entertainment, but also high-voltage acting and gripping stories which will definitely tug at those heartstrings. What with the number of Oscar nominations that each film has, I’m sure they will all satisfy the movie junkie in me.
