It’s been pretty quiet here I know. Let’s blame it on my now faulty phone (I blog more from my phone), and a couple of other factors I’ve decided to let God handle. Anyway, on to the reason we are here on this beeyuteeful day…
I now know for certain that I’ll probably be stuck indoors all through this christmas period and even on christmas day, except when i leave the house to church, so I have compiled and started sourcing for the movies I intend to watch and while away time come next week. The plan is to grab a bottle of wine (four cousins maybe), a pack of MnMs, a bowl of popcorn, turn the lights down low, lock my door and have me some fun. Please bear in mind that my pick is not limited to the christmas kinda movies alone.
My Top Christmas Movies…
Home Alone (1 -5) – features Macaulay Culkin (Kevin McCallister), an eight-year-old boy, who is mistakenly left behind when his family flies to Paris for their Christmas vacation.You all will agree with me that Macaulay Culkin was absolutely amazing here. I am guaranteed lots of laughter with this one. Nothing beats his legendary facial expression when he splashed some cologne on his face. Hahaha.
The King And I. A musical delight, I watched at an early age and I’m excited to watch it all over again. It has to do with some lady becoming a governess and English tutor to the wives and many children of the stubborn King Mongkut of Siam (Yul Brynner). Anna (the lady) and the king have a clash of personalities as she works to teach the royal family about the English language, customs and etiquette, and rushes to prepare a party for a group of European diplomats who must change their opinions about the king.
The Holiday. Two women, one (Cameron Diaz) from America and one (Kate Winslet) from Britain, swap homes at Christmas time after bad breakups with their boyfriends. Each woman finds romance with a local man (Jude Law, Jack Black) but realizes that the imminent return home may end the relationship. Beautiful story line or not, I’d watch this a million times just to stare at Jude Law. *swoons*
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Another Musical delight. While truant from school, young siblings Jeremy and Jemima meet the beautiful Truly Scrumptious (Sally Ann Howes), who falls for their widowed father, Caractacus Potts (Dick Van Dyke), and his various oddball inventions, including the family’s noisy rebuilt car, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. One day at the beach, Caractacus tells Truly and the children a fanciful fable about the villainous Baron Bomburst (Gert Frobe) and his evil designs on the Potts family car.
The Notebook. This should have been at the top of my list. I recently watched the notebook but didn’t enjoy it like I should cos I watched it on my phone (see why I need that white samsung note 4 edge?), so I’m totally up for watching it over and over and over again. The love between Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) and Allie (Rachel McAdams) is so beautiful. I know I’ll tear up badly but hey, who cares.
My Sister’s Keeper. This has to be one of the most beautiful movies I have watched in while. Conceived as a marrow donor for her gravely ill sister, Anna Fitzgerald (Abigail Breslin) has undergone countless surgeries and medical procedures in her short life. Though their older daughter’s life has no doubt been prolonged, the unorthodox decision of Anna’s parents has cracked the entire family’s foundation. When Anna sues her parents for emancipation, it sets off a court case that threatens to destroy the family for good. I cried and cried while watching this movie and I have no issues crying some more.
