'The Iron Lady' and 2011's Best and Worst Movies

Friday, December 30, 2011

The last week of the year brings with it Hollywood's last chance to release movies eligible for 2012's Academy Awards. "The Iron Lady" (trailer after the jump), the Margaret Thatcher biopic starring Meryl Streep is among them. The movie is getting mixed reviews, but Streep's performance is said to make her a shoo-in for this year's Oscars. The Takeaway's Movie Date podcast team gives their assessment of "The Iron Lady," and look back at their picks for the best and worst movies of 2011.

Rafer Guzman is film critic for Newsday, and co-host of the Takeaway's Movie Date podcast. Kristen Meinzer is culture producer for the Takeaway and also co-hosts the Movie Date podcast.
