Holidays and Their Movies

The traditional thing to do on New Year's Eve is to go to a New Year's Eve party, isn't it?  But whenever I talk with friends, family, and co-workers about their plans for this big night, many if not most of them say they aren't planning anything special and will probably stay home.  It may not be a night to remember for the ages, but staying home doesn't have to be boring if you spend the evening with a great movie.   If you plan to stay home on New Year's Eve, you might enjoy the company of one of these movies with an end-of-the-year setting.
