Classes may be over but the great movies on SUTV keep coming out. Throughout December, channel 96 will feature eight new movies to keep you entertained as you plan your holiday vacation.
What better way to pass the time than plotting to kill your boss? No, don’t get any ideas, student employees. It’s just a movie. Besides, who would want to kill Jennifer Aniston? She may play a “Horrible Boss” in the movie of the same name but not many guys I know would complain about being sexually harassed by her.
However, Charlie Day, who plays Dale Arbus, plots to kill her along with his two friends, Nick and Curt (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis), who also plot to kill their bosses (Kevin Spacey and Colin Ferrell). The movie is full of missed opportunities (fortunately) and lots of awkwardly awesome situations.
And then there’s “Crazy Stupid Love.” Speaking of awkward situations, Steve Carell finds himself in many of them as he deals with marital issues with his wife (Julianne Moore) and difficult relationships with his children. He’ll need to be a superhero to work out all of these conflicts.
And if you’re a fan of superheroes, you’ll be delighted to find “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Iron Man” on the list. And for the fantasy lovers, there’s “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2” or science fiction junkies, there’s “Transformer: Dark of the Mind.”
When you start to miss class and need a history refresher, check out “Forrest Gump” and run (literally) through the history of the country with Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks).
Last, but far from least, is one of my favorite holiday movies ever, “Elf.” Will Ferrell is hilarious as the large human who was raised by Santa to believe he’s an elf. When he finds out he’s not, he goes to find his real father in New York City who is a wealthy businessman and not too happy to meet his long lost son who is six feet tall and dressed like an elf.
You don’t have to dress like an elf to have fun this December. Just turn on SUTV and enjoy the entertainment.
