Required Viewing! 10 Movies to Bring in the Holidays!
Hey there Darlings! This article was supposed to be posted yesterday. For what ever reason I was having laptop issues and couldn’t get it to do anything (I need a new one for sure!) Movies play a big roll in my life…and at every holiday! Allow for me to share with you…a list of films that will make your holiday…(whatever it may be)…a great one!
National Lampoon’s Christmas VacationA must for everyone to see. If you haven’t seen it, you go somewhere and pick that shit up and watch it! The movie captures what everyone feels around the holidays. The Griswalds display for us (in every film) how awkward family time is around the holidays. Dreaded In-laws, decorating the house, shopping, that one relative that shows up uninvited…the list goes on. This is the perfect holiday comedy to kick off the season.
The Nightmare Before ChristmasPracticly a required experiance, there is no better multi-holiday movie to exist. Tim Burton lays out what Christmas would be like if every goth kid in the world had their way! If you’ve not seen this, it’s time. The movie has been around 20 years. It’s about time…
A Christmas StoryEven more so than the previous mentioned, I find it hard to believe anyone has missed this movie. This was Christmas Vacation…before it was Christmas Vacation. A movie that tells a tale of Christmas back in a simple time. Come on people TNT does nothing but show this 24/7 at times (is TNT still around?) You have no excuses…
Christmas Carol So many of these movies exist. A lot of them are good…my favorite is the one with Jim Carrey. This 3D extravaganza came out a few years ago and amazed me to no end. You will not be disappointed…
Elf Will Farrel as a giant elf…How could you go wrong? Pick up this movie and be transported to a world of laughter. Maybe I’m over stating this a bit…but it’s still pretty funny and well worth the look if you haven’t checked it out.
Scrooged Bill Murry movies are always good. And “A Christmas Carol”is a freaking classic. What happens when the two meet? Legen- wait for it- Dary!
Jingle All the Way Another one of those movies that addresses problems we all relate to. This one just so happens to deal with finding that “Hot Item” that every kid wants and is going to feel like a loser without. What lengths will the “Ahnold” go to to get this toy for his son? Pretty effing far!
Jack Frost This can work both ways. Either you can watch the horror flick with the murderous psycho snowman. Or the feel good family flick with Michael Keaton. Either way, you are in for a treat. Just don’t mix the two up with the kiddlets eh?
Doctor Who Christmas Episodes Every good little Whovian down in Whoville waits for these. A Doctor Who Christmas special is always magical…or in some cases sad. For those of you that loved Matt Smith, his version of the Doctor will leave us this Christmas…are you all ready? Yeah didn’t think so.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas Another one that works on more than one level. Either you watch the original Cartoon or you watch the one with Jim Carrey….Either one is a great…Either one will complete your holiday!
Until Next Time, My Freaky Darlings,
