Movies Opening This Weekend – December 9th 2016 [videos]

Jennifer Aniston, Alec Baldwin, Ryan Gosling, and Emma Stone appear on the silver screen this weekend, high lighting an opening worthy of your consideration. ‘Harry Benson: Shoot First’ will reveal the life and times of one of the most accomplished celebrity photographers over the last 50 years. Are you the kind of person that watches TMZ or picks up a People magazine for the gossip? Then this documentary is perfect for you.

Kate McKinnon of ‘SNL’ fame (Hillary) carries the season’s best holiday move called ‘Office Christmas Party.’ This film will have you in stitches. Our pick of the week is the Ryan Gosling, and Emma Stone feature film ‘La La Land.’ Finally, you had better think twice about ‘un friending’ someone on social media, because ‘Friend Request’ Alycia Debnam-Carey and William Moseley, will show you how dangerous that can be.

Enjoy the movies this weekend – I always do!

Photographer Harry Benson (now near 90) photographed the stars of the 60s, 70s and beyond, in a raw style that even his subjects appreciated.

La La Land (2016)
(PG-13) 128 min – Comedy
Director: Damien Chazelle

This is the movie of the year for vintage Hollywood love and passion. An unknown but talented pianist falls in love with an up and coming actress in Los Angeles.

Friend Request (2016)
