'The Monuments Men' (12/18)
It's a no-brainer. George Clooney starring in and directing a fact-based film about how the Allied forces managed to steal back the artworks Hitler stole from them. Clooney brought in buddies such as Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin and Cate Blanchett to further juice up his elegant, elaborate adventure caper. Go ahead, call the thing Ocean's Eleven with an extra shot of grit and gravitas. I smell Oscars.
