Christmas Movie Binge

Ok, I'm the Reading Addict. But I also love a Christmas movie. Because I will take advantage of any excuse to be Christmas-y! CHRISTMAS!!! (Ok, I'll be good and get back to the post.)




Looking for Christmas films to binge on?

I got you covered. I watch a ridiculously large amount of Christmas films: here's some of my favourites.

A Christmas classic if ever there was one - this is one of the awesome-est films you will ever watch.

We got Muppets. We got Christmas. We got a kid-friendly adaptation of a classic of literature that might just spark fond memories for years to come.

I watch this every year, and have done since I honestly can't remember when. I love it. It's just amazing.







White Christmas

The classic Christmas film.

Featuring the amazing Danny Kaye and the smooth Bing Crosby (ain't nothing wrong with a bit of Bing,) this is pure Hollywood. Vera Ellen dances amazingly, and Rosemary Clooney just has that 1950s style.

The songs are some of the best you'll ever hear - to say nothing of the title song. Ahhh! I plan on watching it again and again and again!





Mickey's Once and Twice Upon A Christmas

This is actually two feature-length Disney specials/films.

Made up of little stand-alone Christmas stories, featuring Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy, this will please big kids, little kids, and everyone in between.

These are cute and sweet, and can be watched in sections if you're short on time. I love them.






A Christmas Carol

Another 'A Christmas Carol' adaptation (funnily enough,) but very different to The Muppets' version.

This is motion-capture animation (where actors act out the parts and then the animation is layered over them, so to speak,) featuring some fabulous performances by Jim Carey.

This film is also hugely true to Charles Dickens' original - sure, there's the odd bit of deviation, but overall this is Charles Dickens' book made film.

There are significant stints of dialogue lifted directly from the book, and the creepy characters of Ignorance and Want are included in all their poverty - allowing the true morality of the story to really hammer home.
