Christmas Movies 2010

Movies I won’t miss for Christmas:

It’s A Wonderful Life (1946) Rated NR

It’s a wonderful film. Frank Capra’s inverted take on A Christmas Carol stars Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey, a good man who’s spent a lifetime giving up on his dreams to keep life in his small town humming. When a guardian angel named Clarence finds a despondent George poised to jump off a bridge, he shows George what life would’ve been like had he never been born.

It Happened On Fifth Avenue (1947) Rated NR

Every year, when the O’Connors leave their lavish New York home to spend Christmas in Florida, hobo Aloysius T. McKeever takes up residence in the house in their absence. But this year, daughter Trudy shows up unexpectedly. Posing as a runaway, she keeps her identity a secret, as does her father when he arrives home. The confusion that follows ensures the O’Connors will never forget this Christmas.

My new favorite christmas film. Loved it.

 Holiday in Handcuffs (2007) Rated NR

A struggling artist working as waitress kidnaps one of her customers to bring home and meet her parents at Christmas.

Too cute for words. Loved it.

 Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966) Rated NR

Animator Chuck Jones collaborated with Theodor Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) to bring his classic children’s book to life. Embittered, green-haired hermit the Grinch lives in the mountains above the village of Whoville. The Whos love Christmas, and the Grinch hates the Whos, so he conspires to keep Christmas from coming. How the Grinch Stole Christmas is enjoyable on every level.

 Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey (1977) Rated NR

Back in the days of the Roman Empire, a small donkey is born with VERY long ears, that keep getting him into trouble. When his owner throws him out of the stable in disgust, his mother sacrifices her life to save him from a blizzard. And, guided only by his guardian cherub, he has to find his rightful place and destiny, somewhere on the road to Bethlehem.

 Christmas Comes to Willow Creek (1987) Rated NR

Willow Creek, Alaska, is going through a depression because the local cannery has shut down putting many of the residents out of work. Ray and Pete are truck-driving brothers, different as day and night, who are hired by an old friend to bring Christmas presents and one huge surprise from sunny California up to his home town. Along the way, the brothers and Pete’s son Michael argue and get stuck in a blizzard, but finally reconcile with each other.
