(BPT) - Feeling tired of the hustle and bustle of metropolitan meccas when on vacation? You’re not alone. Next year, travelers will choose smaller destinations and opportunities to immerse themselves in the local culture. As daily life is increasingly hectic, people will want to unplug and relax without the stressors of a big city.
Sony Pictures’, “The Interview”, a comedy starring Seth Rogan and James Franco as two reporters who are sent on a mission by the CIA to assassinate North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, has been pulled from its Christmas Day theatrical release. The cancelling of what may be one of the most talked about movies of the season comes after an unknown person or group threatened to attack any theatres that played the film. Several major theatre chains pulled their support for the movie in the past week, prompting Sony to make a decision.
While many theaters backed away from showing "The Interview" on the planned Dec. 25 opening after terrorists threats that have reportedly been linked to North Korea, some other theaters have expressed an interest in showing the controversial picture.
New movie releases for 1/19
Written, directed and starring Chris Rock, this romantic comedy delivers this holiday season’s funniest movie—albeit with shocking language and lewd behavior at times. In only his third time sitting in the director’s chair, the famous comedian potently combines an unsettling, crude style of humor with a milder storyline centered on relationships. The former cast member of Saturday Night Live takes moviegoers on a wild adventure involving strong sexual content and profanity-laced outbursts as we see his fallible character attempt to remain viable in the comedy business.

The holiday season is upon us, and for Tucsonans, that means slower traffic, delicious tamales, and wearing thermal socks underneath your sandals. For Oro Valley, however, it also means that the Great American Playhouse is bringing an instant holiday classic to the stage. “We’re No Angels” is an original story written by GAP staple Nick Seivert. Seivert’s writing style is noticeably different from frequent GAP penman Sean MacArthur. While MacArthur enjoys paying homage to cult Hollywood films, Seivert prefers completely homegrown allegories with little to no references to the silver screen. Being an unapologetic film-buff, I tend to prefer MacArthur’s witty movie-reference filled scripts, but there is still something respectable to be said about an entirely new product brought forth from the mind of a comedian such as Seivert.
