Hi everyone! When I saw Brenna was looking for guest posts from fellow bloggers I was eager to participate. I love her blog and stalk it quite often - so why not be a guest on it too? :) On this post I will present to you my top five holiday movies.
5- National Lampoon's Christmas VacationI haven't actually watched this one in quite a few years but I remember watching it quite a few times when I was younger. It was hilarious and I just couldn't get enough of their shenanigans. Out of all the Chevy Chase's Vacation movies this was the only one I really could watch over and over without getting tired of it.
4- How The Grinch Stole Christmas
This is the most recent of my holiday favorites. No one could have been better suited for this role other than good old Jim Carey. I wasn't a fan of all of his movies, but this was the perfect role and I can't imagine how different the movie would be with another actor. I mean, those facial expressions are what makes the Grinch so much fun to watch.
3- Home Alone
Watching it now, I realize this one is a bit cheesy, but who (over 20) did not LOVE this one? I watched Home Alone at least once every Christmas for a very very long time - and if I happen to see it playing on TV now I would watch it still and enjoy every minute of it. I loved watching Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci get hit in the face by paint cans. And the glue & feathers on his face!!? - It never gets old. Really, it was brilliant!
2- Edward Scissorhands
Although this isn't Christmas themed, it's still based during the holidays and send a positive message so I still consider it a holiday movie. I still watch this when I catch it on TV and I love it as much as I did the first time I ever saw it. Probably more-so now that I'm old enough to appreciate the beauty of it all. It is not just one of my favorite holiday movies, but also falls in my top 5 movies of all time.
1- The Nightmare Before Christmas
I rarely spend a holiday season without watching this wonderful movie. As you can tell, I'm a big Tim Burton fan he has incredible talent and imagination that never ceases to impress me. The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of those movies that I would watch, then rewind the tape (remember those days?), and watch it all over again right away. It has a bit of everything that I love - Horror, comedy, fantasy, suspense, and most of all - magic. It's definitely magical and perfect for a snowy Christmas evening.
Wow this brought back some pleasant memories. I'm really in the mood to watch all of these back to back! Thanks so much for having me Brenna I had a blast writing this post! <3
