On Dec. 25, theater doors opened for the release of Quentin Tarantino‘s Django Unchained and Tom Hooper‘s Les Misérables, both of which made bank!

As previously reported by HollywoodLife.com, Les Mis is one to go see! The epic story tells the tale of Jean Valjean — portrayed the the brilliant Hugh Jackman – who is a convict desperate to start a new life. He is tormented by the police officer Javert (Russell Crowe), and meets the tragic Fantine (Anne Hathway) and helps raise her daughter Cosette (Amanda Seyfried). There is singing, sadness and some great performances in this movie — did you enjoy it?
Django shows Leonardo DiCaprio as an evil plantation owner Calvin J. Candie, and Jamie Foxx as Django, a freed slave who is eager to rescue his wife Broomhilda Von Shaft (Kerry Washington) from Calvin’s clutches. This being a Tarantino movie, there is a lot of violence and gore, but it makes the movie all the more exciting! Plus, Christoph Waltz’s performance as the bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz is not to be missed.
