Issue #21 – Top 11 Movie Reveiw

holidays are right around the corner, it is a time for celebration,
festivities, and families. In today’s society, cozying up on a couch
with the whole family, for a movie, is perhaps one of the more common ways to get in some family time. Movies, can be enjoyable so here at Circles we have created a list of some enjoyable feel good holiday themed movies for your watching pleasure.

1. Miracle on 34th Street:

This movie exists in two forms, the original (1947) and the remake (1994) both films are enjoyable in their own right, but the original is a real classic. It is a tale of department store Santa who is institutionalized for claiming to be the real thing. Eventually, the whole event goes to trial, and the faith and beliefs of all the people involved are both questioned and challenged. If you have never seen this film, get your family together and give it a watch you may enjoy it.

miracle on 34

2. It’s a Wonderful Life:
Thinking of this film one line comes to mind, “Every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings” this is one of the most iconic lines spoken in film. Essentially, a “what if?” scenario of if someone no longer existed what would happen? George Bailey is a small time bank owner who is providing for a small town and fighting back a big business owner from owning everything. When something goes wrong, everything in his life begins to fall apart

3. Home Alone:

A movie that plays with the concept of a child left at home scenario. Kevin McCallister is a boy in immense family who get left behind, when the family goes on vacation for the holidays. Hijinks ensue once a pair of bumbling thieves try to break in and steal from Kevin’s family home, so Kevin, begins to defend it with slap-stick comedy stylized traps. One individual stated that if the movie was a food it would be, “Chocolate ice cream topped with kit-kats and chocolate syrup all over!” She finds the movie a rich,
comforting, and satisfyingly good

4. A Christmas Story

The image of a tongue being stuck to a frozen metal
pole is forever frozen to the memories of people who have
seen this flick. It is a more down to earth comedic look
at the holidays. With a more realistic approach to family and traditions, this film has become a family tradition itself, and it is just hilarious!

christmas-story-quote-along

5. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation:

The “Vacation” films are all funny and are now considered to be
classic comedies. However, many believe the Christmas “Vacation”
to be the best! So, if a good family movie night includes you laughing till your sides hurt maybe Chevy Chase has the cure to your funny bone.

6. A Charlie Brown Christmas

What are the holidays without a Charlie Brown special? Not the holidays, is the answer…just kidding. Over the years,Charlie Brown, has become synonymous with the Holidays and if you see this amazing special you will know why.

7. The Nightmare Before Christmas:

Produced by Tim Burton (director of Beetlejuice, Mars Attacks!, and
Frankenweenie), is a stop-motion animated movie about the city
of Halloweentown, full of ghosts, vampires, werewolves (yes; there is a city that has werewolves and vampires), and other monsters. The king is Jack Skellington, who over the years, has gotten tired of the same thing, having Halloween every day. Through his sulking
and wandering he discovers doors that lead to other holiday
towns. The songs, composed and written by Danny Elfman and are
some of the best in any Holiday Jack Skellington

8. Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas:

The song that goes with this film describes the absolute worst
loathsome creature. The Grinch is a being literally green all over
with jealousy and envy. It is a heartwarming redemption story
and a lesson learned all in one and it is great for both kids and
adult viewings.

9. Gremlins:

Looking for a slightly scary yuletide bash, this movie teaches
people many interesting pieces of advice and facts about Mogwai’s.
Such as to never get them wet, or to feed them after midnight,
and to be careful around all lights especially sunlight which has the
power to kill them. So, enjoy this horror comedy with the family
or any other way you can because it fantastical fun!

10. Die Hard:

New York City Cop, John McClean, is on his way to see
his estranged wife and kids. While schmoozing around at the holiday party that his wife is attending he gets into a heated argument with her. His luck only gets worse as he is caught in the crosshairs of a terrorist group and their heist plans. John McClean reluctantly leaps into action in order to save the holidays for his family. John McClean’s weather forecast is in and he says, “It is a snow day for terrorism!”

11. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles:

A Thanksgiving comedy movie that was released of the Thanksgiving of 1987, starring John Candy and Steve Martin, and it’s considered to be the best and only Thanksgiving movie ever! It’s about Neal Page (played by Steve Martin) just trying to make it home for the holidays to see his family in Chicago. By chance he befriends a traveling salesman, Del Griffith (played by John Candy), as they try to get from New York to Chicago, and it’s a
ride that neither they nor you will ever forget! The holidays
just got a lot better this year!
