It's the first Friday of 2013, with a number of new movies set for release. One of the most highly anticipated is the new adaptation of the Jack Kerouac novel "On the Road." There are also two films going from limited to wide release: "The Impossible," a film about a family trapped in the Indian Ocean Tsunami of 2004 and "Promised Land," about an economically disadvantaged American farming town, the gas company that’s offering to buy up the land, and the conservationist who’s trying to stop it all from happening.
Our Movie Date team, Rafer Guzman and Kristen Meinzer, give us their take on this week's new releases.
In addition to hosting the podcast, Rafer is film critic for Newsday and Kristen is culture producer for the Takeaway.
