25 Days of Stocking Stuffers – Dramatic Flms

Over the next 25 days, I’m going to have a list of 25 stocking stuffers (five different ideas from five different BH network websites).

Today, I’m featuring all of the dramatic films I reviewed on Motion Artifacts this year. You can click on each review for a more in-depth look or just read the quick blur and make sure you have a gift receipt. Works either way…

United – A true story about the tragic plane crash that killed half of Manchester United’s squad in the 1950s. You definitely don’t h

Sin Nombre – It’s not a 2012 film, but it might be my favorite movie I saw in 2012.

50/50 – I haven’t been closely hit by cancer the way a lot of people have, been this movie seems to be a pretty accurate portrayal of the emotions one would go through. Really good movie…

Sarah’s Key – Another foreign flick, this is a fictional tale based on World War II. One of the more touching and emotional WWII movies I’ve seen (which is saying quite a bit).

Of course, there are a few movies that you would overpay for if you found them in the Wal-Mart $1.96 bin. Please, at all costs, avoid the movie Safe House (but don’t avoid my review, of course).

25 Days of Stocking Stuffers – Documentaries

Over the next 25 days, I’m going to have a list of 25 stocking stuffers (five different ideas from five different BH network websites).

Today, I’m featuring the documentary films I highlighted on Motion Artifacts this past (half) year since the inception of the website. I highly recommend each movie, but encourage you to check out the review.

Winnebago Man – One of the most foul-mouthed YouTube videos is expanded to an interesting character study of a confusing, but intriguing guy.

Spirit of the Marathon – A must-watch for anyone who has, or would like to, run a marathon.

Ballplayer: Paletero – Another must-watch for the Twins fan and/or baseball fan in your family.

Long Green Line – A cool running documentary about a legendary high school cross country coach.

The Two Escobars – One of the handful of greatest documentaries I’ve ever seen. The best of the 30-for-30 series which is saying quite a bit.

Pelada – A surprisingly good look at pickup soccer across the world.
