Jim’s Movie Picks for December, 2011

Hello. friends and neighbors. Trying a little experiment here. For the past 6 months, I’ve been posting a round-up of Imagi-Movies featured on @TCM each month, and from what I understand, it’s proven fairly popular. For that, I’m extremely grateful. Recently, I noticed some of my favorite movies, or just movies that I think are really good, while scouting for the schedule, but as they didn’t fit, I don’t add them. So I figured why not do another list, made up of my recommendations. Just covering TMC for now, but perhaps I’ll spread out to include Fox Movies as well (I’m also considering doing this with the I-M list as well)

To it, then:
