Celebration time!

I can't believe that tomorrow is Christmas. I am a citizen of India but we still celbrate this fesrival lavishly. Our family just finished shopping for Holidays and this is the right time where you can watch christmas movies along with your friends and family. Here are some of the movie that I have reviewed and advice you to watch these must have movies during holidays..

First is the Santa Claus trilogy. The first one is such a classic. Tim Allen is so funny and that role just seems natural for him. But when you think about it, Tim Allen + Santa Claus = ????. Seriously! The second one is good. It was a long time since the first came out, but they did a good job. They kept with the classic feel but modernized it with other Holiday people and new faces. Then came the third. It has its funny moments, but overall it doesn't even come close to any of the others. It takes so long to get the climax action, but then it happens so fast! And then Jack Frost is melted in three seconds! Really? Hopefully, if Disney decides to do another, they'll do it right.

Elf has got to be my favorite of all time! It's so funny and so classic. I like how they made it like it was already a classic Christmas movie with all the classic songs in it. One of the best ever.
Another favorite of mine is Christmas with the Kranks. It has Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis in it and they do an awesome job with it. Jamie Lee Curtis is so funny and she and Tim Allen make a great comedy duo in the film. I read the book Skipping Christmas by John Grisham before I saw the movie. They changed the movie name but I don't think they really needed to. But that aside, both the book and the movie are fantastic.
It's a Wonderful Life is the all-time classic Christmas movie...EVER!!!! I watched it a couple of weeks ago and I think it was the first time that I had seen it all the way through. James Stewart is so funny...and its even funnier to hear people doing impressions of him =). What I don't get is that it's really only Christmas for about a half an hour. And it's a long movie too! It has good history in it that plays a good part and is such a heartwarming family time gushy warm movie. The total package.
There are so many Christmas movie out there! I just picked my top ones and reviewed them today. See you tomorrow when I talk about some of the seasons best Christmas specials!
