The 1st Annual Pop Culture Tales Holiday Movie Festival Schedule 2012

Welcome to the 1st Annual Pop Culture Tales Holiday Movie Festival. First, I give you a brief history on how this festival came to be. There are so many great movies to see in a lifetime that I felt there needed to be a conscious effort for film lovers like me to see as many of these amazing films as possible. As a movie lover, this point really hit home for me after recently seeing some really bad movies.  Using the book 501 Must-See Movies as my guide, here is the film festival schedule for the 2012 holiday season. Some of these movies I have seen already and some I have yet to see. Like a book club, I invite you to also watch as many of these films as possible from where ever you are. I will be sharing my reviews on this site. I invite you to share your thoughts as well.
