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." Also garnering a lot of buzz (and Golden Globe nominations): "The Impossible," a film about a family trapped in the Indian Ocean Tsunami of 2004.
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.
