"Zero Dark Thirty"
Cast: Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Edgar Rameriz, Kyle Chandler, Mark Strong, Chris Pratt, James Gandolfini
Director: Kathryn Bigelow
Comment: An Oscar-nominated portrayal of the hunt and killing of Osama bin Laden. Very realistic and an edge-of-your-seat thriller.
Cast: Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Michael Pena, Anthony Mackie, Emma Stone
Director: Ruben Fleischer
Comment: A nostalgic '40s gangsta flick with great atmospherics. Penn does a good job of playing the beyond evil Mickey Cohen, right in his "wheelhouse." Old-fashioned good guys versus the bad guys. A little corny, though.
Cast: Matt Damon, John Krasinsky, Frances McDormand, Rosemarie DeWitt, Hal Holbrook
Director: Gus Van Sant
Comment: An icon for Hollywood's progressive political propaganda. Big corporation out to intentionally deceive and destroy the environment. Almost zero entertainment value.

Food and fun
The Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance and its Young Leaders Alliance have something to talk about: the organizations collected 764 pounds of nonperishable food and $1,295 cash to benefit The Food Bank of Manatee/Meals on Wheels PLUS.
River Club’s Cheryl Kaufman says she’s still pinching herself.
A little “Ho! Ho! Ho!” can go a long way this holiday season.
