There are so many movies out for the holiday season. How do you know if the movie you pick is really worth the price? This article will cover the four hottest movies in theaters and give a quick summary of each so you can know if the movie you pick is worth that money.

The Martian-  After a space mission goes wrong, stranded and lonely astronaut Mark Watney is left for dead on Mars and must use his brains to build and create a habitat where he can survive. Meanwhile, the astronauts he left behind realize he is still alive and join forces with an international coalition of scientists to launch a rescue mission in defiance of NASA protocol. The movie (and book it is based on) are very hot right now.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two–  Chances are, you already know if you are going to see this movie. It just came out on November 20th. It is the final movie in the Hunger Games series. Katniss Everdeen commands the revolution against the brutal dictatorship of President Snow. This is a big budget adventure. If that is what you want, you won’t be disappointed.

Star Wars The Force Awakens- In this continuation of the epic space series, a downed stormtrooper goes on a journey to connect himself with heroic faces from the past and better himself in the process of his journey. This is the most anticipated movie of the season. Buy your tickets online.

Bridge Of Spies- In this historical drama set during the Cold War, a Brooklyn attorney is given a task with negotiating a prisoner exchange between an American who is a pilot who was shot down over the USSR and a Soviet spy serving a 45-year sentence for spying on the US. It is a time period movie so remember that as you are standing in line to make your decision.
