Christmas Movie – Die Hard

This movie is one that many people will disagree over. Is it a Christmas movie, or is it not a Christmas movie? I believe to be a Christmas movie as the entire movie takes place during Christmas, at a Christmas party. Die Hard is also an action movie, and one that I certainly stand behindContinue reading “Christmas Movie – Die Hard”

Christmas Movie – The Santa Clause

When I was young, we only had the stop action Christmas shows that are classics today but were all we had. Until the 1990’s and we got all kinds of Christmas movies including The Santa Clause. The Santa Clause starts with a divorced toy developer, Scott Calvin, who has his son, Charlie for Christmas Eve.Continue reading “Christmas Movie – The Santa Clause”

Christmas Movie – Home Alone 2

Yesterday I posted Home Alone as the movie for the 12 Movies of Christmas, today it’s the second one. This is also a great holiday movie, in the movie it’s a year later. And instead of going to Paris, the McAllisters (and Uncle Franks family) are going to have Christmas in Florida. Kevin isn’t excitedContinue reading “Christmas Movie – Home Alone 2”

Christmas Movie – Home Alone

Home Alone is a perfect family movie. It is one we watch all the time, every year, and even during the non-holiday season. In 1990, we were introduced to Kevin, Marv, and Harry. We also all wanted to stay Home Alone and foil a burglary attempt. But I don’t think that happened for any ofContinue reading “Christmas Movie – Home Alone”

Christmas Movie – The Year Without a Santa Claus

Of all the classic movies out there for the holidays, this is by far one of my favorites. We watch it every year and even have it recorded on the DVR. Originally released in 1974 as a stop action show, it is a show that has catchy songs (Miser brothers) and a great story line.Continue reading “Christmas Movie – The Year Without a Santa Claus”

Christmas Movie – The Polar Express

The book, The Polar Express, was written in 1986 and is a winner of the Caldecott Medal for children’s books. But the book was adapted into a movie until 2004. Never having read the book, nor watched the entire movie, I know this one that my children recommended for the 12 Movies of Christmas, soContinue reading “Christmas Movie – The Polar Express”

Christmas Movie – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Every year there are movies that we watch every single year. This is one of those classic movies that we watch. Rudolph, Clarice, Hermey, Yukon Cornelius, and the abominable snowman. All of them are shown in this holiday classic, that I hope you and your family enjoy as well. The show starts off with theContinue reading “Christmas Movie – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”

Christmas Movie – Miracle on 34th Street

Originally this movie was released in 1947 with a young Natalie Wood. But I am sharing the 1994 version. This movie is a classic, and one that everyone can enjoy. It may help provide that holiday magic that we sometimes lose. The movie centers on a department store in New York. It’s before Christmas, andContinue reading “Christmas Movie – Miracle on 34th Street”

Christmas Movie – How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Dr. Suess created many memorable books, and several of them were turned in the movies. His Christmas offering was How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and it’s been a favorite each year. I dislike the version with Jim Carrey, but thoroughly enjoy this animated version released in 1966. The story revolves around the Grinch, who livesContinue reading “Christmas Movie – How the Grinch Stole Christmas”
