It's a big week for new movies. Larry Mantle and KPCC film critics Amy Nicholson, Wade Major, and Charles Solomon will review the big releases and notable indies.

There's the NFL-inspired drama "Concussion," the reunion of Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in "Daddy's Home," a special new Charlie Kaufman film called “Anomalisa,” a very buzzy, bloody thriller with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy called "The Revenant."

Plus, another Jennifer Lawrence starrer from David O.Russell, "Joy," is in theaters. Last but not least, Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight," a new Michael Moore documentary, and Charlotte Rampling in "45 Years." TGI-Filmweek!
