RED – the alternative holiday movie choice

The last few years, I’ve posted about Christmas / Holiday seasonal entertainment.  I had two years in a row about music. Then, in December 2015, I delved into the movie scene.  To keep things balanced, I feel the need to talk movies one more year.  Well, movie – singular.  And, believe me, this movie deserves a post of it’s own –  RED.

Frank (Brude Willis), Joe (Morgan Freeman), Marvin (John Malkovich) and Victoria (Helen Mirren) used to be the CIA/MI-6 top agents, but the secrets they know just made them the Agency’s top targets. Now framed for assassination, they must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive. To stop the operation, the team embarks on an impossible, cross-country mission to break into the top-secret CIA headquarters, where they will uncover one of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups in government history.

Yes, this is based on a DC Comic. Yes, there is a lot of things that get shot – including a snowman, reindeer, and … .  Yes, I still consider it a holiday movie as twisted as that may seem.  RED is the title. Even the name is festive. Unfortunately, it is also an acronym for Retired Extremely Dangerous.  But let’s focus on the positives here. Okay?

Christmas decorating tips from RED – the movie

Actually, it was my daughter’s idea.  She considers it a holiday movie AND we get to watch it together every December.  Any questions?

Now, just because balance is often saught, but rarely achieved, I thought I’d tip the scale with … a musical number from something  Red.
